It's a very caring residential home, with high standards of staff available. Food seems to be of a high standard and the house itself is very grand and not at all typical of a care home. There is always a highly responsible person on reception from Monday to Friday who will always do their best to deal with anything. The dining room is very grand as well. Have had to deal with conversations with the local GP practice and this has all gone very smoothly.
Since being in Garrett House, my mother's quality of life has greatly improved. She enjoys the company of others and the extra attention she receives. Also, the activities she does are impressive.
My mum went to Garrett House for two weeks in March and didn’t want to go home. The staff management and everyone had made her stay perfect. Not only did she feel secure, the staff were so friendly and she loved the entertainment and going to the activities twice a week. She had one or two health problems and mobility was limited. She had Myeloma and the home offered palliative care, meaning she didn’t have to leave the home and could stay where she was safe and happy. My brother and I stayed with Mum until she passed away. The staff were so considerate to our feelings and Mum's right to the very end. I would recommend Garrett House to anyone looking for residential care.
