Testimonials

The respite care was so comfortable – like being on holiday! The carers and nurses looking after me were very kind and I enjoyed chatting to them. There’s a nice variety of food and I joined in the events run by Karen, the Activities Coordinator. It was all extremely professional.

The respite care was excellent. The staff at Charlotte Straker are well chosen for the job and gave superb care, and I felt very well looked after. The food was wonderful. Hopefully I will get another chance to use the bed. I recommend anyone needing a break to think about using the respite care bed at Charlotte Straker House.

For me, knowing that she was being cared for in your house was an absolute gift. I never worried that her needs would not be met. Your staff team exemplify the very best of what it means to care. Your kindness is outstanding and I am so very grateful to all of you.

I wish to express my thanks to everyone from the Domestic Ladies, the Laundry Ladies, the Office Ladies, the Kitchen Staff and of course the loving Carers for the exceptional level of care you provided. From the bottom of my heart I thank you all.

Charlotte Straker gets top marks as they provide a homely caring service and yet with the overlay of nursing knowledge and expertise that ensures the resident is not only in safe hands but caring hands. They made my mum at home in her final years and they supported us as a family too.

The Charlotte Straker is the best care house that I have ever visited! I want to say a Very Big Thank You for all the wonderful care and support that you give, especially to my sister. I have enjoyed the very welcome atmosphere and all the terrific support that I have seen in operation.

My Mother stayed with you and I wanted to thank you for the care she received while there. I visited Mum and always found her content, happy and very well looked after. We were always made to feel welcome and left happy in the knowledge that she was in such safe hands.

What a caring friendly team you are! Thank you all very, very much for making such a wonderful home, not only for Mum, but for me and my family as well. Your kindness will never be forgotten.
