heart-icon.png/ What People Say

"Words appear to be so inadequate at this time to suitably describe how much we appreciate all the most wonderful love & care you gave to our beautiful Mum. Throughout her time in her 'new home' with you all, she was loved, respected and given dignity at the time of her passing. I spent 3 days & nights with her before her death, and I am simply in ore of you all." Daughter of Resident

"Just wanted to thank you all so much for the care and kindness you showed to Mum. The whole family appreciated it very much, and thank you again for making the past year as happy and fulfilled as possible for her." Daughter of Resident

"I want to thank you all for the excellent care my Mum received during her stay with you. At all times, [staff] were really kind, friendly and responsive. I wish she could have had a longer time to stay at Tremona, but her illness intervened. My thanks to you [Home Manager] personally for all your energy in getting her palliative care sorted out in the last two weeks, and to all of the staff who cared for her during those dark days, and also before – when she was comparatively well." Daughter of Resident

"We cannot express our gratitude to the whole team at Tremona. The care, affection, and attention given to Dad was outstanding, and we are all truly grateful. Moving him into the home was the best thing we could have done, and seeing him happy and content was a great boost for us all. I shall miss my visits to the home." Family of Resident

"[I would like] to express my sincere gratitude and profound appreciation for all the kindness and care that you have all given to me so freely during my stay at Tremona. That kindness and professional care that you have all, so selflessly, showered me with, has been instrumental in restoring my good health, something, which I shall never forget." Resident

"I have been involved in Tremona's social activities for the past year and have witnessed the high standards that are maintained at this home. It is clear that the level of individual care provided by the dedicated and conscientious staff could not be better! In addition to this high standard of person-centred care are the social activities, which are frequent and of a varied nature. It is my opinion that the standards reached in this home are of the highest and could not be surpassed anywhere else in the UK." Neighbour of Home

"Thank you so much for looking after Mum so well. She is very much back on form again, and out and about on long walks." Family of Respite Resident

"I would like to thank you very much for looking after Mum while she was with you. We appreciate your hard work." Family of Respite Resident

"Thank you for looking after my husband so well when I had a short break. Since then, he has made more of an effort to do things for himself for which I am very grateful." Wife of a Respite Resident

"Mum seems very happy and is being well looked after, and always comments how nice the staff are. So thank you for such a great job!" Son of Resident

"Just to say a big thank you to [Home Manager Ilona] and your wonderful staff for looking after Dad so well! It is wonderful for us all to have a break and to know that Dad is in such good hands. Although he has difficulty in speaking, I know that all his needs were met." Family of Respite Resident

"To everyone at Tremona, thank you for looking after me so well for the past two weeks." Respite Resident
