We understand that it is a big decision when choosing a specialist residential service and that you need as much information as possible to help you make the right choice.
That is why we have asked residents, relatives and professionals to share their views and experiences of Priory Adult Care settings. The testimonials below aim to give you a real insight into our services, the way we work and the outcomes you can expect.
“Staff help me and I am more independent now, like I was before.”
“I have been here since June last year. I like everything about the home. The staff are helpful and there is always somebody to talk to. My friends can also visit whenever they want.”
“I wanted to write to say how much I appreciate the work of your carers and nurses; you really are doing a great job.”
“I don’t get bored, I am independent and do what I like, I do everything myself and the staff are nice and... support me in things I find difficult.”
“I am really proud of what I have achieved so far. I really enjoy going to college and I haven’t missed a day of training since I started the course.”
“I love going to Highbury club. I love singing and dancing with my friends and I love our trips out on the mini-bus.”
“I received great support from a dedicated team to have an active and happy life.”
“When I came to St. Mark’s Court I was unable to walk, but with the help and support of the carers, I am now able to walk using a zimmer frame.”
"I really like living here. I have made good friends and I have a laugh with the staff. They are lovely. I enjoy going on the trips out and we have some good shows."
“I am now going shopping on my own which gives me a different experience of independence. I am also going swimming with staff support which I never thought I would be able to do and it's so much fun. Life is great at the moment.”
Supported living resident
“I just want to thank you to your staff for all your care and attention. I have nothing but praise for all your wonderful staff.”
“The carers are excellent. They really make me feel welcome and nothing is too much trouble for them.”
“Dad is really settled here at Blair House and that’s a great comfort to all his family.”
“I have never seen my mum so content in recent years, it’s like having my old mum back. Thank you to all the team.”
“The carers and management are loving, professional and they always treat the residents with respect.”
“For the last 10 months I have been visiting my husband at Dalton Court where he is recovering after a severe stroke. The kindness shown to both of us by all staff has been heart-warming at a very difficult time. I am always greeted by smiles and made to feel welcome.”
“When we were asked by the hospital to look for a nursing home for our mother, we were told to find one which went the extra mile. That we certainly did."
“What wonderful carers, from the manager to the cleaning staff. Thank you Parc Wern.”
“With the help and support of staff at Roseneath Avenue, my son is now more like his old self. He is a lot more positive and his level of challenging behaviour has drastically reduced.”
“It is such a friendly and welcoming home where my daughter has a great quality of life.”
“Working as a professional in the care sector, I visit many care homes; I have found this one to be one of the best. The manager is very person-centred and he and his staff show a keen insight into each individual within Avondale. The staff team work hard and are close knit. Although the main aspects of care are obviously to meet people's basic needs this care home clearly offers 'TLC' and a sense of family to its residents. I believe it’s a good example of future care for the elderly.”

“We have worked closely with the service in recent months and have found that all staff we have dealt with are very professional, committed and eager to continue developing a working relationship.
As a care co-ordinator of a service user residing at Glebe House, I have found the working relationship to be a positive one. Maintained contact and updates with involved services, encourages a holistic approach and individual, needs-led approach that also empowers and promotes the capabilities of those they support.”
