Testimonials & Reviews
We think that Cavendish Care Home is the best home in Gloucester. But we're biased so don't take our word for it:-)
The best people to tell you what Cavendish is really like are our residents and their families. Here are a selection of their comments taken from the www.carehome.co.uk website.
Excellent care from all the staff, very caring and understanding
Excellent care from all the staff, very caring and understanding. Mum's personality has changed considerably since coming to Cavendish in a good way, she socializes very well which she didn't do before. By far the best care home I've come across in Gloucester.

All the staff have been brilliant
All the staff have been brilliant. They have made a huge difference to my dads quality of life and in the process helped my dads family. My dad moved from a different care home. A mistake on our part as it has turned out, thank goodness we found the Cavendish Care Home.
Cavendish care home is managed to an extremely high standard
Cavendish care home is managed to an extremely high standard by the registered manager who has made some very positive changes to ensure person centered care is delivered at all times. The care assistants are always helpful ensuring my granddad is treated with dignity and respect. I cannot fault the care that my granddad received.
The Staff do an excellent job and are very caring
My Father went to stay at Cavendish in June and has settled in well, mainly due to the excellent staff, they were very patient and understanding with him. They have just completed a sensory room which is lovely and very useful when Dad needs a quiet moment to gather himself.
The gardens had a re vamp this summer which was great and the staff have made the garden very pretty, everyone loves to go out there weather permitting. It is a lovely home with a 'family' feel to it, it has a great atmosphere and the staff are always welcoming, nothing is to much trouble.
There are lots of activities for those residents who wish to join in, the summer and Christmas fetes were a great hit with the residents and we have a trip to Prinknash this weekend. The Staff do an excellent job and are very caring, I would feel very happy to recommend this home to anyone who is looking.
Very efficiently run care home
Very efficiently run care home. All the staff are very attentive and seem to know the needs of the residents.
The care staff work extremely hard and are very caring
My mum has been at Cavendish for the last five years. Since the present manager has been there the dementia care has improved immensely. The home is very dementia friendly i.e memory lane, sensory room, photographs, activities.
I am extremely impressed with the activities coordinator she goes above and beyond her duties as does the manager. The care staff work extremely hard and are very caring. The home comes over as friendly and very homely.
Staff and management are always ready and willing to listen and try to help with compassion
The resident feels this home. He is treated as a person, not a patient or responsibility. I don't worry about his treatment. These comments are also shared by my daughter. Staff and management are always ready and willing to listen and try to help with compassion and dare I say, love. I cannot praise these people enough.
I think this care home is superb
May I say I think this care home is superb. I would like to say the manager is most helpful and always there to address anything you need to say.
The senior care assistant I can't fault but there again all the staff there are very caring they treat the residents with the utmost dignity and respect and they tend to their every need whilst maintaining the friendliness and having fun with them.
I cannot fault this home very clean all wood flooring and everything is where it should be I would recommend this home to anyone.
The management of the home is of the highest quality
The management of the home is of the highest quality. The manager and senior support staff do much more than their job to ensure the residents and those who are their relatives are well informed and kept at ease. What I would have heard from other sources, this care home is vastly superior in nearly all respects.
The building is old and takes a lot of cleaning and maintenance but this is carried out to a very satisfactory level. I feel completely confident that the residents, some of whom must be very difficult are treated with dignity and as far as I can see, want for nothing. The senior staff should get a special mention showing both enthusiasm and dedication, my experience has been satisfactory at all levels.
Always welcoming and I was always made to feel welcome
The care home is well run, with a highly competent manager who clearly cares, with kindness and respect.
The care team are friendly, always welcoming and I was always made to feel welcome, they treated my father with great care and kindness in a homely environment.
