Gilby House in Winterton
“I have nothing but praise for the staff and the way my son is cared for in Gilby House Nursing Home.
The old-looking building is lovely inside and my son has everything he needs and more. He is not the easiest person to look after but their attitude to him is so happy and caring and he tells them he loves them.
In addition, they have been so kind and helpful to me when I have difficulty visiting (I have Rheumatoid arthritis) and have made sure I have been able to visit and have lovely days with him.
My son has to have a special soft diet, but they make sure it is always tasty and nutritious.”

Loran House in Hull
“My mum moved into Loran House in November, and the first thing that struck me was the absolute kindness of the staff, the fact that a lot of them have been working there for ten years, plus!
She loves the food! It really does look fantastic and prepared with love and care.
My mum is still quite able-bodied and always loved dancing; the staff encourage this a lot, which also ticks so many boxes for Mum’s health and well-being.
Her room has an ensuite toilet and sink, and she has a pressure mattress, which is great as she suffers from severe arthritis.
Mum has her hair done weekly; the home treats her and pays for this every other week; they really don’t skimp or scrape there. Snacks on tap, she’s maintained a good healthy weight though.
The doctor that visits the home has been great and communicates with me.
Mum’s generally looking so much better than when I was caring for her; even though I did my best, she is definitely getting better cognitive and all-round support; she’s thriving at Loran House.”
