What others have to say

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

They take very good personal care of my mother. She's always been happy when she's been there. They communicate well with her and make sure her wishes are seen to.

Relative of a resident, April 2023

There was a good response from the meeting as she struggled with some foods, the next time I went they had made changes, she can have anything she wants, she was told that if not on the menu they will make it. 

Relative of a resident, April 2023

I am very pleased, everyone is very professional there, every-time I visit she is well looked after. She always looks very happy and content.

Relative of a resident, April 2023

They deal with every aspect of my mums’ life. I trust them to do what I would do, whether I'm there or not. They have kept them safe with cleanliness and health policies. They've been strict with visiting but in line with Covid rules, they've followed them to a tee and put other practices in place to see relatives. They are kind and supportive.

Relative of a resident, April 2021

Communication is good and helped her settle in and gave me guidance in what she needs and general all-round care. They are in regular contact with me about anything.
