Happy and Settled Resident
I can wholeheartedly recommend Port Regis. I thought it was about time that I reviewed this care home as mum has now been a resident for 18 months. After being evicted from her previous care home as there were worries that she was aggressive and they did not have the right staff to cope with her. I was concerned as there seemed to be a lack of understanding of Dementia which was the reason mum had been admitted in the first place. I wanted a place where mum was not only safe, but happy and well cared for. We viewed several; Port Regis was one of them - it was clean, with no unpleasant aromas, and there was a separate wing for Dementia patients, the west wing which is where mum resides. Mum was given a room with en suite toilet and basin and beautiful views over the lovely grounds. I was worried at first as she hated being moved again but soon seemed settled. There are numerous activities from crocheting, drawing, history pictures, chair exercises with balls, visits from dogs - someone is there 5 days a week just to do these activities. The television is not often on as there is a lot going on. There is also a quiet room where the radio is playing and residents can relax here. The dining room is spacious and opens onto the garden as does the activity room which also has a hairdressing salon. The garden is next to a nursery and you can hear children when they are out in their garden. The staff are the best I have come across they all know mum and recognise me when I arrive. She can be feisty but they treat her in exactly the same way that I would and I can only sing their praises. Mum got ill and had to go into hospital and the staff kept me informed every step of the way and also with her progress once released from hospital back into their care. I can call at anytime and there is always someone whom I can talk to about mum and they always know what is going on day to day with mum. I cannot praise the staff enough, they are always willing to talk to me if I have any concerns, but most of all they know mum well and recognise immediately if anything is different in her behaviour - which could be the sign of any potential illnesses. I really hope that she ends her days here as she is the happiest she has been in a long while.
