Find out what some residents and families have to say about their time in Abney Court

I would like to express my deep gratitude and thanks for the care that my Aunt Jean Paulden received whilst a resident with you.  It was a relatively short period of time, but memorable in so many ways, and ultimately she regarded it as home - something she found difficult to accept initially, but latterly was happily resigned to.  I’m only sorry she didn’t take advantage of your care and hospitality sooner.

Her last days were peaceful and the kindness that she, Geoffrey, Christine and the rest of us were shown during this difficult period was truly magnificent and supportive. Thank you one and all.

Relative of resident, Jean Paulden – May 2018

We both really appreciate the care you gave to our Mum and the care you gave to us both during a very difficult week.  It will not be forgotten.

Christine Jones and Geoffrey Hagren, relatives of resident – May 2018

Thank you for your care and kindness you gave to our Aunty Hilda during her time at Abney Court – we know she was loved and respected by all.

Joan and Janet, Nieces of resident, May 2018

It is a very happy place. The activity staff are very happy, very motivated and enthusiastic. I know they do a great job and give the home a good vibe. The carers do treat the residents well also and play games with them too…They are very professional and have great relationship with mum too.

Relative of a resident, November 2017

Thank you for caring for, and supporting Donald and Margaret during their respite stay.  Abney Court is lovely and we felt great peace of mind that they were safe and happy.

Gill Bailey and Sue Briscoe,  September 2017

I see the way staff interact with all the residents and it's very obvious they're kind and caring…I’m very happy. My mum couldn’t be in a better place.

Relative of a resident, August 2017

The staff seem to interact very well, leading me to believe they have great personal skills. They pitch the conversation on the right level depending on who the resident is. Not talking down to dad or talking over his head, it's on the right level for him… From having looked round all sorts of homes, Abney Court cannot be faulted.

Relative of a resident, August 2017

Since my mum went into Abney Court she has blossomed. This is because of the care of the staff who involve her in all the activities and made her feel confident… The lifestyle team are outstanding as they include everyone regardless of their capabilities… Whenever  I go there I can see the interaction and all the staff are always friendly, warm, kind and inclusive.

Relative of a resident, August 2017

With thanks beyond measure to all of you for your wonderful care of our Dad, Frank. You so often went above and beyond, and we’ll be forever grateful.

Family of resident – September 2017

Thank you very much for taking care of my Mum, Audrey Meachen.

Family of resident - August 2017

You are the best!  You have all been so kind during my stay.

Thank you so much.

Doreen, respite resident – July 2017

This is a short note to thank the whole team for the care and attention given to our Mum during her stay at Abney Court. We know that her stay would be time limited by her illness, but during the time she was with you, the level of compassion, professionalism and individual care she was shown, was exceptional.

She could not have been in better hands.  We would not have a second’s hesitation in recommending Abney Court to anyone.

Gillian Stone, daughter of resident – May 2017

We would like to say a big thank you to you all for the wonderful care you gave my husband/our Dad during the six weeks he was with you for respite care. It was important to us that he was in such a happy and caring environment, and we took great comfort in knowing that he was in such capable and professional hands.

A home from home. Thank you all.

The Edmonds, family of resident – May 2017

Just a quick note to express my appreciation of the care given to my Mum whilst I was away.  A great and caring team!

Dave Gartside, son of resident - April 2017

The staff take mum out on a daily walk. I know they spend one on one time with her doing crosswords and they check on her in her room and sit and have a chat with her if she doesn't want to get involved with anything. She tells me where she’s been and what she’s done

Relative of a resident, February 2017

I am very happy. As a family we can relax knowing mum is being well cared for and that she is happy. She is stimulated and living again. We are welcomed into the home by the staff. Everyone is very friendly and has time. It feels like a little community. I know all the other families as we are welcome to events they hold throughout the year

Relative of a resident, February 2017

To all the staff on Albert Suite

Thank you very much for all the care and attention you gave Mum during her short stay with you. We had a good journey to Sutton yesterday - she is now very tired, but happy to have made the move.

Janet Mitchell, daughter of respite resident - January 2017

Very many thanks for all the care and attention you gave my Mother in her last four months.

You ensured the very best environment for her in these precious days.

She really enjoyed her time with you and we cannot thank you enough.

Roger and Judy Baker, family of resident – December 2016

To all the staff at Abney Court - thank you for looking after me.

Eunice Jones, resident - November 2016

Many thanks for all the care you have given Mum during her stay with you.  I'm sure we will see you all again.

Family of respite resident - November 2016

They do a fantastic job at being capable of meeting all the resident’s needs. They honestly can't do any more than they are doing already.

Mr T - November 2016

I am writing to thank all the staff at Abney for their amazing treatment of Dad in the short three and a half weeks that he was with you.

Everyone, and of course particularly the staff on the Albert Suite, showed such compassion, kindness and caring at all times. Nothing was ever too much trouble.

If only some care homes could have the ethos of Abney Court, the world would be a much better place and there would not be the horror stories that one reads so often in the Press.

I do find it hard to express the depth of my gratitude. Dad always told people how good the staff were and said how much he enjoyed being with you there. It did make his final days so much easier to bear, including that someone was with him at the end.

Daughter of resident - October 2016


Sincere thanks to all the staff at Abney Court for all the kindness, care and compassion that was shown to May.  May really enjoyed her time with your, especially the companionship of the carers, housekeepers and activity ladies.

May also enjoyed the musical entertainment provided by the home and the interaction with the other residents.

Thank you for the cards and beautiful flowers and the support you gave May’s family.

Family of May, resident - October 2016

Since I arrived I have enjoyed the delicious and thoughtfully prepared food you have provided. Because of a swallowing problem which can be an embarrassment to me I prefer to eat in my room. For the first time in years your dishes have re-awakened my appetite and interest in eating. Thank you.
