Resident's Families Testimonials

 

Review from DB (Son of Resident) published on 22 April 2021
Submitted via Carehome.co.uk Website • DB is Extremely Likely to recommend Lower Farm Care Home with Nursing Home.


Average rating 5 out of 5

 

My father was transferred to Lower Farm Care Home after rehab at Amberly Hall care home. My father was recovering from sepsis and had a stroke 9 years ago, so had physical needs with paralysis on his left side. He uses an electric wheelchair, has medical needs for his warfarin levels and a catheter too. To add to this, Dad's personality changed since the stroke making him quite a difficult person to please. I am phrasing the best way I can.
On arrival, Dad was allocated an upstairs room. This meant he had to go into the lift, in his wheelchair, each time he wanted a cigarette to go outside to smoke. As he is a chain smoker this proved problematic. The care home team moved him to a downstairs room to make his stay more comfortable. They have been caring and supportive to Dad throughout even when he has been unpleasant. Truly professional and we highly recommend Lower Farm Care Home.
