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

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

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.

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.

Thank you so much for all your love and care for Dad during his time with you. Thank you for all the ‘above and beyond’ bits you all did - it didn’t go unnoticed.

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.
