Fordingbridge Care Home Testimonials

Mum was happy at Fordingbridge, as she told us often. Our family also knew she had the very best of care and attention which gave us peace of mind between visits. There are a number of staff who worked on her floor and we cannot thank them enough, personally, for being her family when we weren't there with her. You all know who you are.

We really feel that she was in the best place with the best care and love in her last days. Thank you all.

My grandmother was diagnosed with mixed dementia quite a few years ago. We watched her slowly fail to manage in her own home and finally the day came where she needed more care than was able to be provided in her own home. This was a big moment for everyone and came with a lot of thoughts of guilt, sadness and fear, especially seeing her be separated from her husband. She sadly passed away recently and we can honestly say that the care she had at Fordingbridge Care Home surpassed all of our expectations. Seeing her so trusting towards the staff, even up until the end, was such a reassurance for us as a family and a tribute to the incredible care staff that went above and beyond for her. I hope all the staff at Fordingbridge can be proud of the quality of care they provide and know that we truly feel they are the unsung heroes.

My mum has been a resident at Fordingbridge for several years. I have watched her slowly decline as the illness takes hold and as upsetting as this is to watch, one of the main consolations has been the care and love shown by the staff who look after Mum.

I live some distance away and can't visit as much as I would like, so knowing I can really trust the home and the people who look after Mum is so important to me. I have never had a reason to doubt at any time that her needs and care have not been a priority. This is vital when you have to make such a difficult decision to entrust a loved one to a completely new environment.

My Mum has lived at Fordingbridge Care Home since 2017, it’s a wonderful home full of caring, kind and compassionate staff.

I’d been really concerned about her going into care but thankfully I found it’s an amazing place, with Mum treated respectfully as an individual with warmth, affection and understanding in her own home. Mum’s always had the freedom to do exactly what she needs to do day and night, with experienced skilled nurses and carers keeping her safe. 

In my opinion, it’s the people that make it so special. Mum’s always very well cared for both physically, mentally and emotionally. Her nurse is absolutely amazing along with the wonderful carers and activity staff. They know about her life, likes and dislikes, and it matters to them that her days are the best they can be.

They keep me updated by phone and send me photos, so I always know exactly how she’s doing when I’m not there. It’s really reassuring and I will forever be grateful to everyone for Mum’s incredible care.

The care my father has received at Fordingbridge Care Home has been fantastic.

Always welcomed by friendly staff who have shown great knowledge and care towards him. They have always got him all the help he has needed and kept us regularly updated with how he is.

I feel very confident in his care at this home, it has a warm and friendly atmosphere and the staff and residents always appear happy when I am visiting.
