Ferndown Manor care home in Dorset

Ferndown Manor

Find out what some residents and families have to say about their time at Ferndown Manor.

I am absolutely amazed at how genuinely kind and patient the staff are. They are so thoughtful and I have seen that with other patients in the home as well. I have been really charmed by the method that they deal with slightly difficult residents. They respond very quickly to any call from my sister and they are very patient and understanding

Relative of a resident, February 2018

It's very clear from the conversation that I've had with the staff over the phone or in person [that they know my relative as an individual]. They can talk about things she likes and doesn't like. They show concern, care and compassion to things that are important to her. You feel reassured that they do know what is going on and they are on top of things with her… We have seen a huge change in our relative in the few months she has been in there. She is being encouraged to join in and we think that this support has had an impact on her mental well-being and her physical health.

Relative of a resident, November 2017

When we have visited my aunt, it was very obvious that the staff treat her well. My aunt has even said about how well they treat her. I think it's been great for my aunt and I think the home have been very good to us as relatives. They have taken their time with us as they know we live a fair distance from her. Communication is brilliant.

There is always someone around. The staff make it friendly, fun and lively at Ferndown Manor. 

Relative of a resident, August 2017

It's not like a home when you walk into the reception area. There's a nice open area where the residents can sit downstairs and have tea or coffee. It's very warming and welcoming. It gives the impression that they care.
