Larchfield Manor is in a league of its own for every possible reason. The Management of the Home at every level is superb. All the staff from top to bottom are or at least appear to be trained to a very high standard. However they retain a very warm, compassionate and calming approach to their guests. From my experience all the staff know all the residents and both understand and accept their needs and their personalities. The Home has the feel of an Edwardian mansion that the ladies in particular love. Instead of the residents sat around in a big circle as is often the case in many Homes, there are many reception and leisure areas where ever changing groups can sit and relax, read, watch TV, knit etc. There is a daily programme of activities and entertainment. Others prefer to wander around the extensive gardens, have a chat or seek their privacy away from their first class rooms. There is always something happening. Larchfield Manor really is a home from home, full of fun and laughter. The food is extremely nice, varied and home cooked. The chef's cakes are gorgeous and are enjoyed every afternoon. Last week when I was visiting my friend there was a garden party with a a range of entertainments and Pimms! I defy any person wanting to enjoy the safety and security offered by a Residential Home to find a single real fault with Larchfield Manor. I visit my friend three times a week and I look forward to walking through the front doors to see everyone's smile and listen to the laughter and chatter going on in every corner. My only criticism and it is only a minor one, parking can sometimes be difficult immediately in front of the secluded front entrance during the week. However, there is plenty of parking spaces around the side. If you want your loved one to be settled, protected and happy, Larchfield Manor is perfect.
