"Our Father who had dementia was cared for by the good staff at Milton Court for 2 years. In every respect he was given the very best care and attention. I was in a position to visit him frequently and got to know the staff and management well. I can't speak highly enough of how they looked after him, how they always went the extra mile and were professional in every respect. A wonderful Rest Home that I sincerely recommend for those looking for the best levels of care. " .....Kerry Pearson

"My lovely mum has been at Milton Court for a few years now and over time we have gotten to know the staff pretty well. It's always hard for someone to have to leave their home and give up their independence but the staff at Milton Court helped mum to accept her new circumstances and talked her through the hard initial stage of acceptance. We are happy with mum being at Milton Court. She really likes the food, the staff are good to her and kind, and the other residents are her friends. The facility is small and homely with a lovely lawn/garden space which she utilises during summer. Initially she was encouraged to help in the garden and had other little jobs she could do as she always liked helping. She went out for walks with others and made the place her home. As she has become frailer the staff help her more but she retains a certain independence. Mum and our family are happy with Milton Court and the caring staff there."................ Carol Warner

"I recently visited a family friend who has been at Milton Court for many years. The staff welcomed me even though it is 5 years since my father was there. They were wonderful with him even though he was rude and aggressive at times. He was in the dementia unit and they looked after him well in the challenging circumstances that happen with dementia. The lady I visited was told by the doctors they could do no more for her well before dad died, so It is due to the amazing care that she has had that she is still alive now."............... Susan Abercrombie

"For our mum and the rest of the family, the move to Milton Court was the best move for mum at this time of her life."....Jim R

"The care that my mum receives is first class. I cannot praise it enough. The staff are all great and its like one big happy family...I would have no hesitation in recommending Milton Court"

"The care received from all staff is of a high standard and there are many activities available and our Mum is able to choose something to do most days of the week.The environment is lovely, very "home" based, and the cleanliness superb. I could not have asked for a better home for our mum- she is extremely well cared for and settled."..Anthea D

"The family have always been made welcome at any time of the day and appreciate being able to visit mum whenever we are able. The staff are always approachable and willing to discuss any concerns we have."...Miriam M

"The most outstanding feeling that I get from the staff is that they genuinely like my mother and seem unfuffled by some of her demands that could be difficult.... Keeping me informed about what is going on in her life is important and this keeps me up to date.... Without hesitation, I can fully commend the staff at Milton Court and I appreciate it immensely".. Pat C
