My mother has been in the care home since early July 2016. Until early May she was living at home with me but after several serious illnesses was too frail at 100 years old to return home despite spending several weeks in a rehabilitation centre. We never wanted her to go into care but we both feel that she could not have found a better home. The staff at Crossways have been marvellous with her, helping her settle in and caring for her every need. She has been encouraged to overcome her small difficulties and loves her life at Crossways.

My mother has been a resident in Crossways residential home for 3 1/2 years. She has always been very pleased with the way she is treated with dignity and sensitivity. She enjoys the food and is generally very well catered for. Crossways has a homely atmosphere that is organised, friendly and efficient. The management and staff are always cheerful and aware of my mothers needs. They also encourage her to take part in activities.

My mother stayed in Crossways for a week's respite care in March. It is hard for her
to adapt to completely new surroundings, being blind and frail, but the staff could not
have been more caring and helpful, nothing was too much trouble. As she can't see
and needs a walking frame, some of the furniture had to be rearranged so that she
could move around safely and have everything she needed to hand, but this was
arranged quickly and willingly.
The atmosphere in the home is warm and happy: everyone I met there, without
exception, was friendly and welcoming. The only slight criticism is that the room was
a bit small, but that didn't really matter for just a week's stay. In fact a better room was offered, but didn't have en suite facilities which my mother needed.
I would happily recommend Crossways, and in fact my mother already has
recommended it to several people!

I have spent a week in Crossways convalescing after an illness, and I cannot
recommend then highly enough. I had every care and attention.

My parents have been residents in Crossways for ten years and the care has been
excellent. My mother recently passed away and her end of life care was superb (as it
was for my father). The staff were compassionate, gentle and understanding. They
were patient and kind with my father as they still are, which is helping him and the
family enormously in their grief. The management and therefore the staff understand
the residents needs and moods on a daily basis. It is a safe and loving environment
where family and friends are always welcome. We are indebted to them for their
