“I have been coming to The Deanery for about a year now and was really impressed from my first visit by the warm welcome I received from the residents and the staff. Jackie and Beverley are both so cheerful and obviously have a great relationship with the residents. I find it really rewarding to play for such a lovely audience who appreciate all the different styles of music I play and will often join in with ideas and suggestions for music they would like to hear on future visits. The atmosphere here is lovely, relaxed and happy, and I feel privileged to be part of it.

PS My husband who has Alzheimer’s comes with me and is always greeted with the same warm welcome and a lovely cup of tea!”

Isobel Liebman - Flautist

“Our mother has been at The Deanery for four years this coming April. She has always been happy here and throughout, my sisters and I have been satisfied and content in the knowledge that she is well cared for. All staff are personable and acknowledge Pat when passing by. This is a lovely setting for a home, we all love the Bistro and grounds and the accessibility to everything. We feel that things will continue to be good with a tight and focused team. Keep going!”

Andrea Green and Candace Moore - Family of a resident

“To all staff, Thank you for all your kindness to both Alex and myself and family, during Alex’s stay with you. We will miss you all, it’s always felt like friends at home when we visit. Thank you all so much. Susan and family”

The family of resident Alex Rankin -

“I have lived here 14 months. When I walk in through the front door it isn’t like walking into a residential home, it’s more like a family home, warm, friendly and inviting. All the staff are very friendly and helpful and the care I have received is excellent. The activity co-ordinators are very helpful and arrange activities to suit everybody’s needs, including lunch, going out for tea, garden centres, which is very enjoyable, and they look after us very well. My family are also very happy with me living here.”

Brenda Boley - Resident

“I have lived here almost ten years and in that time I have been well looked after, happy and contented. The care I receive has been very good and I couldn’t ask for more. The activities are varied and I enjoy the outings very much.”

Dorothy Whitehead - Resident
