"Our Mum was at Princes Court for 3 1/2 years. Her time in care was amazing, and we were exceptionally lucky to have had such a professional, friendly, caring and dedicated staff looking after her.
We were always made to feel very welcome when we visited and really enjoyed the baking that was on offer with our numerous cups of tea.
Mum was given love. support, companionship, activities to do and had a very balanced menu plan each day.
Before Mums passing, she was diagnosed with stomach cancer, we as a family could not be more grateful to the staff for allowing Mum to be able to spend her final month at the Resthome. The staff went beyond their duty of care for her with such compassion and dignity shown.
Regards to all and keep up the amazing job you all do for your residents and Princes Court" .

"My husband has been a resident at Princes Court in Ashburton for approximately 18 months. He had been diagnosed as having Alzheimers about 6 years before being admitted there. It was very traumatic for myself and my family to finallly realise that as his caregiver I was not able to cope any more.
The staff at Princes Court were tremendously supportive of us as it was a decision we did not make lightly and it was extremely emotional for us and even more so for my husband.
They made the transition easier for us all and have treated my husband and all the other residents like family. We have come to know a lot of the staff and without exception they are very caring and kind to one and all. The facilities and rooms are always lovely and kept very clean and tidy.
When we visit they are welcoming and very friendly - I cannot fault anything and knowing my husband is happy and settled there is a feeling money cannot buy. I would absolutely recommend Princes Court to anyone who has a family member needing fulltime care" .

And from another relative:

"My brother moved into” Princes Court” from another Rest home, as he needed a bit more supervision and help with dressing etc. Yes, the door is locked, but behind that door is a lovely homely atmosphere with separate dining area and intimate lounges flowing into a spacious and vibrant secure garden area. The bedrooms are modern with good wardrobe space. My brother quickly settled into life there and enjoys the home cooked meals, morning & afternoon teas, suppers, entertainment, activities & company together with the 1 on 1 time with staff.
The social functions involving families & residents are lovely fun times and much appreciated.
I have found Management & staff to be truly caring & friendly towards the residents and their families. They promptly phone & discuss any issues that arise including suggestions on how to best resolve or manage the situation. One of Princes Court Dementia Care strengths is the ratio of staff to residents".
Thankyou to everyone at Princes Court
