Testimonials

"I just wanted to thank you and your team for the care given to Mum for the short time that she was with you.  From the time I walked in the door (without an appointment) I felt that this was where I wanted Mum to stay, and luckily a room was available for her.  Everyone that she and I came into contact with showed great care, and nothing was too much trouble.  Special thanks go to Robert, Katy and Jo, not forgetting Lori of course and Graeme, however all the carers showed great compassion and kindness.

I would highly recommend anyone to Aronel Cottage, for both residential and/or nursing care."


"To all the staff, thank you for your excellent care and kindness, without the exceptional staff it would have been an even more difficult journey. R couldn't have wished for more and for that we are so grateful to you all."


"Dear Robert and all the staff, a massive thank you goes out to all those of you who worked so hard to take care of mum during her four year stay with you. In healthier times for keeping her weight up, against the odds!
She was mostly content and cheerful and loved to chat to anyone that had the time! And, of course, for the last four months, keeping her comfortable through her determination to stay with us. Lastly, thank you to all the staff who gave us the support we needed, at often difficult times."


"Firstly I would like to thank you and your stafffor the care and attention you gave to my mother in the last six months. She was released from hospital on end of life care and was extremely frail. I am grateful to you all for looking after her and I am relieved that she has to suffer no more."


"Dear Julian, thank you and your staff for all the care and kindness that you have given my aunt during her timewith you and especially in the last weeks of her life."


"May i take this opportunity to say how much the family have appreciated the compassionate way in which mum has been so well looked after over the past few months as her health has deteriorated significantly.
Whenever she has had visits by family members, which fortunately have been frequent, the carers and all membersof staff have been so helpful with Robert always available to answer any questions and update us on mums condition.
When mum passed away Basil and your carers on duty at the time were so professional and understanding in dealing with my brother, cousin and myself, with nothing being too much trouble at such a difficult time.
If in the future any of the family are asked to recommend a nursing home locally, then without hesitation it would be Aronel cottage."


"To all the staff who helped look after mum so well during her time with you at Aronel cottage.
My brother and I appreciated you patience and kindness towards mum, particularly as she became increasingly frail and forgetful over the last few weeks of her very long life - just short of her 101st birthday!
Despite the challenges, mum at all times still managed to find humour in situations, and was always so positive about the care she was recieving - simple things like a kind word and a smile made all the difference to her well-being.
A special mention to those of you who were around during her last few hours - your kindness and understanding towards us all was most welcome. Keep up the good work - you are all amazing!"


"To Julian, nursing staff and all the carers. Thank you for the lovely flowers. Most of all the care, kindness and understanding of his needs."


"To all the staff at Aronel cottage, heartfelt thanks for the care, patience and kindness shown to my dad. Dad's last few days were particularly difficult for us all but you treated him with dignity, respect and love to the end.
It was a great comfort to me and the family to know that dad was in such good hands. I shall miss my visits to Aronel cottage and seeing you all. I always recieved a cheery welcome no matter how busy you were.
Again thank you all, i'm so very grateful, very best wishes."


"To Robert and all the staff at Aronel, thank you so much for the care and comassion you showed to my dear asuntie in her last days. You were all so kind, bless you."


"Adam and I would like to thank you all for the care you gave J, life had not been kind to him and being a very independent person he found the last few years hard to come to terms with, which at times made him difficult, but in his heart we know he appreciated everything that was done for him. We would also like to thank you for all the teas and coffees made for J's visitors."


"Thank you for sending the lovely flowers to the service for mum.
She would have been very touched to know that she was so popular!
I know that mum was very well cared for all the time she was with you.

My cousin Rosie, said yesterday that Jo had comforted mum on the last day and I thank you Jo for your care.

Thank you Katie and Robert for taking time to speak to my brother and I on Wednesday last week. Thank you Katie, for suggesting the flowers.

With all good wishes to all of you at Aronel Cottage."

"Dear Julian and all the care team at Aronel Cottage! A BIG thank you for all the care you gave to my wonderful Mum while she was there"


"I would like to thank you for providing my mother with a room in your nursing home. The accommodation was first class and the care from the staff was excellent. I could not have wished for a better home for my mother."


"I would like to take this opportunity of thanking you and all of your staff for the kindness and understanding given to my mother during her brief stay at Aronel Cottage Nursing Home. I know that she was sometimes noisy and not always co-operative when your staff attended to her needs.

I arranged with Robert for my brother and I to clear all of my mother's personal effects from her room with the exception of the portable TV and DVD's. These items have been left behind, by way of a donation, for the benefit of one of your residents who does not currently have a TV in their room.

Many thanks for providing the comfort and medical care to my mother for the short period she was residing at Aronel Cottage Nusing Home"


"I would like to say a great big thank you for all the care and support you gave me throughout my pregnancy.

I've enjoyed working with you and wish you all the best."


"We would like to thank you for being a kind friend to our Dad."


"Thank you Judith for all your care of our brother.

As a family we felt so welcome from the moment we walked through the door. Your warmth and shining smile wrapped around our family and we knew that this was the place where our brother should be.

So it transpired, along with the chef's cooking; Robert's excellent nursing and your houskeeping skills, you all gave us two and a half extra years with our brother.

We all love you to bits for being you."


"Thank you so much for all the kind loving care that you gave to our mum.

Words are never enough to express all our gratitude, all your care was second to none. We would like to thank each and every one of you. Thank you to all the nurses, care assistants, kitchen staff, cooks, laundry lady and housekeeper. Nothing was ever too much trouble."


"We would just like to thank you all for looking after Dad"


"Thank you very much for arranging the move Mum into her new room, without stress or strain. She seems very happy with the arrangement and has no issues with anything. I appreciate that it was hard work for all concerned and feel as though you made the transition smooth and easy for her.

Secondly, I'd like to say on behalf of Robbie and myself how relieved and grateful we were to find you at Aronel Cottage when we came looking for a safe and secure environment for our Mum,  You've helped her so much and made her feel welcome and comfortable in a setting that we were struggling to come to terms with.

Thank you from us all."


"Thank you so much for forwarding the photos of Mum at the summer party - much appreciated.  You can see everyone enjoyed the day in the garden and sun.  We found it really lifted Mums mood, and it would be a chance for different groups to mix and get to know one another, as well as getting Vitamin D and fresh air.

I also wanted to say a huge thank you to you, and the Office staff Judith and all the Housekeeping ladies - who keep the Cottage homely, spotlessly clean and tidy (and smelling fresh), Graham and Kerry for all the lovely fresh meals, kindness and chats - Mum loved her food to the last lunch! Robert and the Nurses and Carers for their constant care, kindness,  thoughtful touches,  and sense of humour.

Everyone does a wonderful job, and it was a HUGE comfort to Dad and I to know Mum was in such good, caring hands, and to be welcomed when we visited.  Please pass this on to your staff and also let them know that all Mum's visitors said what a lovely, happy Home Aronel is."

"I want to thank you again for looking after my Aunt with such care and attention in her last years, spent at Aronel Cottage and for the kidness and patience that was given to her by your excellent care staff. She was happy with you all and in her more lucid moments she would say so"


"I just wanted to say thank you to you both for your quizzes and garden club. Mum enjoyed them both very much and used to get very cross if for any reason she missed them.

It really helped to keep her mind active and stimulated when her body was less capable.

Please know what you do is so worthwhile and all families of residence should be as grateful to you as Mum's family are. Although we are so sad now and think of her all the time. I shall think of the flowers she planted with you recently and know she will be smiling when they bloom in the Spring.

Thank you so much again"


"We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the wonderful care you gave our Mother whilst she lived at Aronel Cottage Nursing Home. It is so nice that we can remember her being very comfortable in your well run home.

She was so well looked after in her third year of being with you and your staff; warm, clean, beautifully dressed, excellent food, excellent housekeeping and laundry service, constant attention etc, and we were treated with the upmost respect on every visit by all staff.

Your staff were always kind to her and careful to enable her to retain her dignity.

We would have no hesitation recommending your nursing home to anyone."

He could not have had better care and kindness

Mum & I are glad we chose Aronel Cottage for his final days and he had a lovely room."

You do an excellent job there without any fuss, well done."

We were very pleased with the way you looked after and cared for him.

It is clear to us that there is a culture of genuine warmth at this nursing home, where everyone is treated with great dignity and affection. That culture is very special, you are all wonderful people, providing a wonderful service.

She could not have been in a finer, more caring environment.

We will always remember you all and your great kindness"

It was very much appreciated"


"We were very touched to receive the lovely floral tribute from you all at the funeral of our Mother, on Friday.

We’d also like to take this opportunity to thank all at Aronel Cottage for the kindness and care shown to our Mother during her short time with you. Everyone who visited said how nice Mums appearance was and that must be put down to the hard work of Judith and her team in your housekeeping department, who keep the residents’ clothes and rooms so clean and fresh.

Everyone at Aronel Cottage works hard for the residents’ well-being and we consider ourselves very fortunate to have found such a wonderful home for our Mother at the end of her life.

Our sincere good wishes to you all"
