Review from carehome.co.uk
The core staff at St Anthony’s are absolutely brilliant. They do everything possible to look after and care for residents; they work very hard to make St Anthony’s a home from home with a real family feel. The rooms are excellent with en-suite facilities and patio windows to a private terrace and out
to beautiful grounds. The food is of a very high standard with lots of choices, and all the kitchen staff are an absolute asset – they provide heart to the home and a central, vibrant hub. The activities staff work so hard with lots of creativity and clever ideas so that everyone, whatever their ability, can join in and are encouraged to do so. The home is spotlessly clean, and, again, the domestic staff do so much more than clean; they add to the family environment. The management and office staff are efficient and always on hand to answer any questions or requests from family.
In short, this is a wonderful sanctuary of safety and care. I would highly recommend this home.
