What others have to say

Here are just some of the comments we’ve received from family, friends and residents at Harrier Lodge care home.

I always find the staff very happy people, which means a lot in the environment where the people are confused as it is a dementia home. It is very clean, and everyone is engaging.

Relative of a resident, August 2023

The care and attention is excellent and very professional.

Relative of a resident, August 2023

The way they engage with my mother in a personal way. They always try to raise her spirits and it always impresses me.

Relative of a resident, August 2023

All staff take a genuine interest in my relative, they know about her family and they are very friendly. They sit with her and hold her hand.
