My grandma seems very settled at Orchar Nursing Home and has a good relationship with the staff. Since moving to Orchar Nursing Home it has been a lot easier to get my gran out as she was stuck in her house at home. She gets great enjoyment from being able to get out.

Mum has now been at Orchar for over 6 months and has enjoyed her first Christmas there. On Christmas Day she was unable to leave her room for Christmas lunch with the residents in the dining room so the staff set two places at the table in her room with crackers etc for us both. The meal was excellent, some staff popped in/out when they could. The residents are bought gifts and as she is a keen reader, were thoughtful enough to buy a selection of books. What could have been a difficult day turn into a very good experience.
