On arrival my Mother was seated by the window accompanied by a member of staff eating her dinner. All around were other residents and carers doing likewise. It was lovely to see the sensitivity and genuine care being extended to the residents by members of staff. At every table there was a member of staff, not supervising but having a laugh and a joke with the residents around them while at the same time ensuring that everyone had everything they wanted.

… Dad is so happy in Derbyshire House and we are relaxed now that he is cared for so well. He has been with them for over a year and the staff amaze us every week with the kindness and thoughtfulness of every one of them. Such a pity that other Homes cannot have the same standards…

… I am amazed at just how caring, sensitive and compassionate the staff of Derbyshire House are. Their attitude to the residents is no different to that of people their own age and they treat them all with the utmost respect, sensitivity and dignity…
