My favourite part of the day is any chance I have to spend time with residents and their families. It’s a privilege to care for older people, to learn about each person’s life history and wishes and to enable them to feel safe, loved and to give them a sense of self-worth. Diane CollinsHome Manager

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.

They contacted me about completing a life book for mum. Ask me things about what is important to her. They chatted to me about what foods my mum likes. I was worried she weren't eating properly, and we had discussed what we can do.

My experience, they have been very caring and listen to what you say. Carers are kind. Place is lovely. Mum seems quite happy. She is encouraged to come out of her room

Relative of a resident, April 2021

Thank you once again for enforcing the safety guidance regarding Covid restrictions. The residents are very lucky to be given such care by your hard working team. Their concern and care is exemplary. I have always found all staff members to be polite, helpful and cheerful. A team to be proud of!

Daughter of a resident, April 2021

My Mum loved Harrier Lodge - the staff were so lovely to her. I know the home have many themed days and events with the staff and even the manager getting involved. I follow them on Facebook and it is so lovely to see the residents having such a lovely time. From the care staff to the manager, kitchen to housekeeping they are all lovely. Well done to all involved.

Friend of the home, March 2021

Fantastic care home for Nanny Barbara, she is so happy every time we see her and the staff are wonderful. They clearly look after her well.

We are very pleased to be able to say that, as the Spring booster Covid vaccination is being provided to residents in our homes, the additional protection and our continued infection prevention and control measures means we can start ‘living with Covid’ and regain more normality in day-to-day care home life.
