“The staff are amazing. I cannot speak highly enough about them.”
Daughter of resident

“The staff are kind and wonderful.”

“The level of cleanliness is fantastic. It is second-to-none.”
Son of a resident

“It’s like living in a community and it’s small enough to be like a family.”

“My mum has lived at Swarthmore for nearly three years. I looked at a number of homes which didn’t feel right before I found Swarthmore and immediately felt it was the right place for her. Mum can be a solitary creature and the house allows her to be that way without ignoring her needs and she is treated with respect and kindness at all times. She is not a Quaker, not even religious, but this has never been an issue. I can’t recommend Swarthmore enough.”

“Obviously, it was a difficult time when we were considering whether my Mother would be better off in a care home. When we visited Swarthmore, after having viewed several other homes, I was struck by the friendliness of the care staff and their genuinely caring attitude. My Mum, reluctantly at first, moved in and within weeks, the changes in her were evident. She has thrived in the active, caring and homely environment of Swarthmore. Having visited her regularly, I have become even more aware of how caring and kind all the staff are. My Mum has really grown in confidence and enjoys the activities that take place so regularly. I am so pleased and relieved that we have found such a lovely home.”
Son of resident

“My father has recently started living at Swarthmore, and I am incredibly happy with how quickly he has settled in and made friends. The staff are all amazing, and the level of care is exemplary. The staff are incredibly caring, and treat each resident as an important individual at all times. The food is excellent, the rooms spacious and well furnished, and the entire home is kept very clean.”

“Staff were very caring, understanding and extremely patient. Beautiful gardens and homely atmosphere.”
Son of resident

“A loving caring community where each resident receives personal care according to their needs. The alarm system is answered immediately and appropriate action is taken. Varied menu is adapted to dietary requirements. A very good place to be.”

“Now is the time, I think, to thank you and all the staff at Swarthmore for the tender care you have given my mother for the past four years. It’s true that in the last 12 months or so she’s been less able to express herself, but I know that she has always felt contented and well looked after.”

“Going into care is a difficult moment for anyone, and also their family, it’s a step into the unknown, but as I’ve come to know and love Swarthmore I’ve been ever surer that in mum’s case she couldn’t be in better hands. Thank you all very much.”

“Just a little note to say thank you on behalf of all the family for the loving support and friendship you have given to my mother this last year. Swarthmore is a warm, happy and welcoming place and I know that my mother has been very happy there. She enjoys the company of the other residents and when she is able the activities and trips. Above all I know that she along with the family are impressed by and grateful for the painstaking and tender care of each and every member of staff. Nothing ever seems to be too much trouble and everybody gives so generously of their time.”

“We would like to thank all the wonderful staff in caring for my mother.  She is very happy at Swarthmore and enjoys all the thoughtful attention she receives. She could not be happier and we really appreciate it.”

“Thank you very much for everything you have done for my mother over the last five years. You have looked after her extremely well.”
