The support my mum Pam has had since she moved to Amherst has been fantastic, They welcomed her into thieir home which has now become her home. They have made her feel so welcome and have supported her so well when she was at her most vulnerable. They have clearly understood her care needs whilst still promoting her choice control and independance. The care staff are consistant. Willing to listen to family about care needs and have built a proffesional relationship of trust with my mum. I know my mum values the staff and the friends she has made at Amherst. Well done and thank you Amherst. X

My mum had to go to brittania suite at Amherst court for rehabilitation on 4 separate occasions. The care she received from the staff there was great. They were caring and compassionate to my mum's needs from her personal hygiene to the physio to get her back on her feet walking again. I cannot praise the team highly enough.

My mum was a resident for 10 months on the Trafalgar Suite at Amherst Court before she sadly died. Words cannot express my enormous thanks to the team who looked after my mum. We were naturally looking for a care home that looked after and cared for Mum, but we also wanted somewhere where she would be encouraged to join in with various activities, be mentally stimulated and most importantly loved, and that is what we got from Lesley and her marvellous team on the Trafalgar suite at Amherst. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this home as the care they provided to my Mum and the support they gave me personally was second to none. Rated 10 out of 10 Wendy - Daughter

Often dad not showered , dirty, day staff always blame night staff. He is left in his room , hot and dehydrated. Never taken out or to the garden. Food is very basic, only once saw a green vegetable, mainly shades of beige. Understaffing especially at weekends and holidays. Poor Dad has to pay for this terrible service, over £4000 a month. Lip service is paid to my complaints. I am in the process of moving him.
