I expected respite charges to be per night entitling him to 44 hours care rather than the 34 hours we got, however everything else was absolutely excellent. Thank you! I would happily recommend this home to family and friends.

I am unable to comment fully as I live 125 miles away from Rendlesham and am unable to visit my mother as often as I like. However I telephone frequently and am very pleased with the attitude and care of the staff. They always phone if mother is 'out of sorts'. My mother seems to be treated very well and for a person with her problems seems to be very happy.

My aunt had been living independently until she was 94, but following a fall needed a care home. Rendlesham is in my village, I feel this is fortunate as my aunt is well looked after. I go to see her once or twice a week. She never was a great socialiser so doesn't take part in any activities but she is always contented, her clothes and bedding etc. always fresh. Her physical health is monitored, rooms are equipped with sensors, and she buzzes for assistance to move around... -

My 90+ year old parent arrived on the day their spouse had died under traumatic circumstances. Dementia, anxiety, confusion and a long-standing general lack of interest in personal care conspired to make this a most difficult day ahead of some difficult weeks to come. My parent resented any help and rejected all assistance. Day by day the staff built bridges by being interested in the person but without being over directive... -

The home is purpose built. There is a very happy atmosphere here. It is always warm and cosy. It is lovely when we hear Pearl's laugh.

Our friend is well cared for. Happy, clean and loved. problems, that inevitably arise, are quickly looked into and dealt with. The home is clean, comfortable and well staffed. I would happily recommend it, if you can afford it.

98 out of 100

I would not hesitate to recommend this home to anyone. If searching, look no further, this place is up to a standard by which all others should be judged.

Joe being a 95 year old man had a severe fall getting out of the car. Once back at home, he wanted to go to bed. He slept all day and all night. I kept checking on him and he was breathing comfortably. The next morning, I found him on his bathroom floor. The emergency service did not consider him a case for hospitalisation (no broken bones, no stroke etc). However, Joe kept being very confused and hardly drank or ate anything for two days... -

The building is purpose built with a very light and airy atmosphere - it is always a pleasure to visit. The staff provide loving, homely care for all the residents. We looked at a number of homes before deciding on this one.

I last wrote a recommendation in April this year and cannot improve on what I said then! My family and I are still very happy with the home and feel reassured that our lovely Mum is getting the care she deserves in this challenging time of her life and health.

It is so good to know that my mother is in safe and kind hands. She is well cared for. The food is good and she is happy. We would be very concerned if she was miserable.

The staff are very friendly, willing to help and extremely kind. The home is also very light, airy and never smells.

My wife is in this home with Alzheimer's. I looked after her for 4 years, but the time came when it was too much. She went into Rendlesham April 29th 2011. I must say she is well cared for there.

I chose Rendlesham Care Centre for my mother 2 1/2 years ago, after a long and detailed search. I have been happy with the care which is being offered. The staff are very caring and are very familiar with my mother's needs, which are increasing with her illness. Also, a member of staff told me he himself no longer feared death, since seeing first-hand how Rendlesham handled residents' deaths!
