My mother took residence at Old Gates after suffering a fall at her previous Care Home. I would recommend Old Gates in a heartbeat. My Mother suffered with vascular dementia along with other ailments. The care could not have been better. Right from our first visit we were welcomed at reception and shown throughout. All staff were lovely having a smashing rapport with the residents. Food is smashing and it is planned for each individual although my mother was there for only a few months I couldn’t recommend this Care/Nursing Home enough. We visited a number of Care homes and Old Gates stood out by a Country mile. The Home is light and airy with a lovely atmosphere for the residents. The end of life Care for my Mother was exemplary, caring but sensitive to the family’s needs at what was/is a very difficult time. All of the standards we found are met if not higher than required by a dedicated team of Nurses and Carers. Well done and thank you to each and every one.
