Overdale is a warm and friendly home with exemplary staff. Their compassion and care for the residents is second to none. My friend (and previously my late mother) is contented and happy. The en-suite rooms and bathrooms are immaculate and the sitting rooms and dining rooms make it ‘home from home’with good nutritious and varied menus. I cannot praise Overdale highly enough.
Staff from domestic to management are kind and caring, always smiles. Overdale is a small but wonderful residential home. I feel it has exactly the right atmosphere. Mum is happy there and I’m happy at the excellent standards throughout the home.
Our Mother stayed at Overdale for respite care after being in hospital.
The room was very sunny, lovely big window.
There was a large window which overlooked the lovely gardens.
The staff were very helpful and friendly.
There was a hairdresser and a chiropodist visiting regularly.
The food was very nice and very varied.
Everywhere was clean and it had a pleasant smell.
We would highly recommend for a long or a short stay.
Excellent care home. Mum moved there in June 2014 from Peterborough. Settled in very well. Staff are very caring and kind with a low staff turnover. Visitors arrive anytime and are greeted and any news regarding care etc is given, with a cuppa and biscuit. All medical assistance is prompt. Clients are always well dressed and hair done etc. Activities provided in afternoons and day trips/pub outings organised. So relieved that I chose the right care home!
Overdale feels like a home from the minute you arrive. The staff are friendly and caring, my mum can be challenging at times but is always dealt with in an understanding way.
Her room is always clean and staff are available at all times to keep the room clean and comfortable.
The lounges are not just ‘for show’ and are busy and homely. I visit other homes to see friends and relatives and none of them feel the same as Overdale.
It feels like home and that is what I want for my mother.
I am very happy here, time has flown in the 2 years I have lived here, I have made lots of new friends, staff are friendly and kind. A.W.
