” To Joanna and your staff,
Thank you for your care and consideration shown to mum during her brief time with you. We really appreciated the kindness shown to us as well, you really went above and beyond and made a really difficult time more bearable.
“To all at Bluebell heartfelt,
Thanks for all your hard work and the sacrifices you have made throughout this difficult time for the love and care of all your residents, especially for Betty G. our Mum.
Love from Betty and all the family xx”
I would just like to take this opportunity to thank you all of your nursing and care staff for the fantastic care and compassion during mums stay at Bluebell.
As you can appreciate, the last year or so has been a difficult time for us, especially with the issues during the lockdowns. But we were always confident that the continued care and the communication from your care and nursing staff always made us feel that mum was in good hands.
Should you feel that in the future you may need any feedback or testimonies as to the excellent standards at Bluebell, we would be happy to provide our support.
Once again, please extend our thanks to your staff, for everything that they did for mum during her stay at Bluebell.

“Dear Paula and staff,
Just a few lines to say a huge thank you for the kindness and care that you gave to my sister Esme P. during her time with you.
I know going in a Care Home was not what Esme wanted but it had to be and I know once she was settled she was as happy as she could have been.”

“We found Roselands to be a well caring and supportive residential home to both the residents and family members. Everyone involved; carers, management, housekeeping and not forgetting the chefs are fantastic! They have kept us well informed and the residents safe throughout recent times.” – E A (Relative of Resident)
“Mum is very well cared for at Roselands, always looks neat and tidy when we visit. Nice room, good food, staff are kind and friendly and have been great at the moment with Covid keeping everyone safe. Would highly recommend it.” – Bridget T. (Daughter of Resident)
“Mum went into the home during lockdown, by liaising with staff I was kept up to date with mum’s health which was really important to me. Nothing is too much trouble, I have only been as far as the dining area however from what I have seen, I’m positive the rest of the home is to a high standard. If there is an issue I know it’s sorted as soon as possible.” – Shelly C. (Daughter of Resident)
“I am so grateful my mother is at Roselands, she suffers from dementia and is 93 years old. She is very well cared for and the manager and staff are wonderful. The communication and updates are regular and the new WhatsApp initiative is excellent, with photos and regular activities shown. My mother is happy and feels at home in the beautiful setting that Roselands has. I feel at ease knowing that my mother resides in this wonderful care home.” – Jill M (Daughter of Resident)
Thank you all so much for the care and support you gave to our mother and to us, her family.
You gave her a wonderful home for the last years and we are so grateful. We hope you enjoy the chocolates and take pleasure in the ‘Angela’ rose as a reminder of her.
With love from Elizabeth, James, Catherine and all her family xxx”
“Dear Matt and team,
Thank you so much for being there yesterday. Seeing you outside paying your respects to your Jimmy broke my heart, you all did him so proud.
You were all truly another part of his family and words will never be enough to tell you how thankful we are to you all.
Take care and see you soon.
“I know processes and procedures are an essential part of a care home and rightly so. But what really makes a care home is the people who provide the care for the residents. When a young carer puts her head round the door and says, “Hi Handsome” and to see the huge grin light up a 98 year old – priceless.
Roselands provided comfort and security for my parents, as well as care with incredible kindness. I take comfort in knowing they were so well looked after in their time at Roselands. A big thank you to everyone involved with their care and the support given to us.” – Dudley P. (Son of Resident)
I just wanted to take a minute to pass on some positive feedback regarding Tee. There is a challenging situation at Langton way involving a service users and their registration with a GP – Tee has taken considerable time to call and chase relevant teams to make sure this client gets the medical care she needs. I am sure he is just doing his job but I really feel he has gone above and beyond to make sure the client is safe.

“Dear Joe & Matt,
Just a note to thank you so much for all the wonderful care and attention you gave to Winnie B. You must be very proud of all your staff who taken so much care of her and showed such friendship to us especially during her final days. Will be in touch at a later date.
Your most sincerely,
Everlyn & Bog”
“Dear Matt, Jo and all the staff at Bluebell, I would like to thank you all for your professionalism and loving care in looking after my mum Doris P. for the last 27 months. You have always made me, my family and friends so welcome. I have a lot of fond memories of mum in Bluebell ranging from Elvis to the lovely parties you held. It will be strange not coming in anymore, but hopefully when Covid is over, I will be able to pop in.
Once again, I am so grateful for making the last few difficult years as comfortable and supportive as possible for us.
Regards from Juaithi xx”
I am writing on behalf of myself and all of Rosa B.’s family, to thank you and all the staff at Hartley House for the care that you gave Rosa during her stay with you.
Sue W., the attorney before me, went to a lot of trouble to find a home for Rosa that was appropriate and would provide the best quality of care. I knew she was very pleased with her choice and Sue, I think it is fair to say, was not someone who was easily pleased.
For myself, I was always impressed by the care that you gave Rosa. It was clear to me that she was well looked after and happy. I often witnessed how she would make eye contact and smile whenever a member of staff attended to her. It was pleasing to see.
I feel sure you are all going through a very difficult time dealing with the physical and emotional pressures that the virus has brought. I hope that soon life will be a little easier for you.
Thank you, again, for all that you have done for Rosa and continue to do for all those that are in your care.
“To all the Team at Hartley House,
I wanted to say thank you to all of the Hartley House staff for your help and support whilst I have been working in the Home recently.
I have observed excellent, individualised patient centred care for your residents whilst working under very challenging circumstances. All staff have demonstrated care, compassion and kindness for residents, relatives and each other. I would in particular like to highlight Kerry, Claire, Laura, James, Daisy and Gabriella who have “gone the extra mile” to assist me in my role at Hartley and ultimately ensure that the residents received appropriate, effective, quality care.
You are a great team!
Lisa K. (Complex Care/ Frailty Nurse, Kent Community Health NHS Foundation Trust)
I did want to take this opportunity to say a huge thank you to you and all the staff at Hartley House for everything you did for my Dad while he was with you. He wasn’t happy I’m his prior home as I think you know but he was looked after so well by all of you after he moved and he really loved his time there.
We couldn’t have found a better home for him and he couldn’t have been looked after any better. I’ve told everyone this and truly believe it. Thank you all so much again.
“Thank you for all you do, especially during these difficult times, looking after the Residents.
From Jean D.’s daughters”
Where do I begin! Thank you so much for being there at such a difficult time. Thank you for the teas, the chats and the love and care you have shown to us.
My name is Sarah C. and I am Complex Care Nurse working for Kent Community Health Care Trust.
I was redeployed from my usual area of work of spend some time supporting your care staff/residents along side my colleague Lisa K. during the current out break of Covid-19 at Hartley House last week.
Over the two days I was there Lisa and I witnessed your team of carers and agency staff provide the most amazing care in such a difficult and devastating time, the family members I interacted with whist there could not speak more highly of your team.
Clare the team lead, leads by example, the team lean on her heavily and she steps up with an in-depth knowledge about the clients and directs the staff accordingly with confidence. She is working above and beyond to support the clients and staff and I wanted to congratulate her on doing such a great job in such a difficult time… keep up the good work Clare.
Daisy was also another person I wanted to let you know is an outstanding member of your team. She is confident, caring and compassionate with the patienes. She has fantastic communication skills and was very efficient when she supported us for the day during our visit, definitely a Nurse in the making, well done Daisy and good luck with your NVQ.
Keep up the fantastic work and you are all doing a great job!
Sarah C. and Lisa K. (Complex Care/ Frailty Nurse, Kent Community Health NHS Foundation Trust)

“I started with Eleanor Care 8 years ago now as a carer, working evenings after I had my baby. I learnt Being a carer is the most rewarding job you can do, which gives you the “Job satisfaction”. You really do feel at the end of your shift you have made a difference and that is a great feeling.When my little one at the time started Nursery Eleanor allowed me to change my availability to working days as well as some evenings. The support I have received in my time with Eleanor Care has been Out standing! and the progression I have been offered has been Amazing!Since starting as a carer I have progressed to the position as a Field Care Supervisor, then to a Recruitment and Retention Officer. All the time learning new skills which I would never have learnt if it was not for Eleanor Care. Then this year I was given the opportunity and responsibility to be part of the project Team in setting up and launching our New Branch in Boscombe. Now 8 Years on I am the Branch Manager for our Branch in Boscombe.I owe so much to Eleanor Care for the opportunities they have given me along with the amazing on going support I have received from day one!One thing that really stands out for me, is that Eleanor Care really do Value their Employees and especially their Carers. We are very lucky that our CEO recognised this and ensures this is rewarded. Even by arranging get together / BBQ’s and nights out and every year the best Christmas Party ever!” – Branch Manager, Bournemouth
