Review from Richard M (Son of Resident)

My mum had Alzheimer’s and was cared for by the staff team at Taptonholme for the last four years of her life. The staff remained virtually unchanged throughout that time (which I think tells you everything about how the home is managed) and everyone, no matter what their role, treated mum with absolute dignity and respect. Mum’s illness could be very upsetting for her at times, but all the staff had the upmost patience and gave her all the time she needed. My sisters and I had cared for mum ourselves prior to her moving to Taptonholme and we wanted to get that difficult decision right for her. We looked at number of other homes, but Taptonholme was head and shoulders above the rest. It’s in a brilliant setting, has a welcoming, friendly atmosphere, it’s not too big and it’s greatest asset – the staff team. I felt a real sense of comfort knowing that mum was well cared for every hour of the day and I now feel that those last years spent at Taptonholme were the happiest of her life.
