  • It is a home from home without the snags of being of home.  I feel safe at night and have immediate assistance with any problem that arises. I feel the home is dealing with any Covid issues as they arise very sympathetically and efficiently.

  • My mum is in a great place for all the reasons indicated in the ratings.  This gives me and the family peace of mind as we mostly live in Scotland.  The team here are to be congratulated as it's not the easiest job in the world.

  • I feel so very fortunate that my mother was able to spend the last 4 weeks of her life at Avon Cliff.  The care she received for her end of life was exceptional. She told me time and time again that there is nothing they cannot do for me.  I met so many members of staff over those weeks and they were all exceptional.  Special praise to the wonderful, professional, caring and highly experienced nursing team.  Not only did they care for her but they provided huge care and support for us as a family.  She was shown utmost respect at all times which I know mattered to her a lot.  The team made a sad and challenging time as easy as it possibly could be.  Thank you so much.

  • From the moment that Helen came to visit us at home we were so reassured and encouraged that we had found the right place for my mother.  Her professionalism and expertise were second to none and though brief, her stay with you was nonetheless so helpful. Thank you once again.

  • I have only got praise for this outstanding care/nursing home. My mother spent 3 months at Kingfishers during which time the care was exemplary. The staff were incredibly kind to my mother, me and also to our wider family.  They looked after my mother wonderfully well, ensuring she was extremely well cared for with compassion and dignity to the end.  A wonderful team from the receptionists through to the manager.  I cannot thank them enough.

  • Dad is so happy at Bourne View.  He came for respite care for six weeks but decided he loved it so much he wanted to stay.  All the staff are kind and caring from maintenance to the nurses and support staff to the waiting and reception staff. The food is fab and the buildings are beautiful and dad has a lovely room overlooking the garden.

  • A belated huge thank you to the wonderful team at Avon Cliff who cared for my mother during the last month of her life.  I feel so very fortunate that she was in your care.  Your team cared for her in an exceptional way.  They also cared for us as a family and provided support that I was not expecting.
