My husband moved to the Swiss Cottage Residential Nursing Home on 19 November 2017. I have found the management team and staff very caring and co-operative. The care and nursing staff do their best to care for my husband with dignity. Whenever I raise issues of concern, the manager often offers to address them immediately. The quality and portion of food being offered to my husband are very good. Thank you to the manager and her team.

Facilities and Services
Swiss Cottage is set in 4 acres of beautiful gardens and forest. When the weather permits it, we try to utilise these gardens as much as is possible to allow our residents to enjoy the fresh air and tranquillity. At the front of the home there is a large parking area for the convenience of visitors to the home.
On the ground floor of Swiss Cottage we have 2 dining areas and 2 large lounges, on the first floor there is a lounge and an additional lounge / dining area. These tastefully decorated, large spaces are open living areas for every person living in the home to enjoy. Each floor is also equipped with several bathing facilities and lavatories, with bedrooms with ensuites equipped with wash basins and toilets. Due to our aim of ensuring the happiness, safety and wellbeing of every person living in the home, smoking within the building is highly prohibited. There are several sheltered smoking facilities to the front and rear of the home which can be used at your convenience.
Several professionals visit Swiss Cottage regularly to offer additional services. A hairdresser visits us frequently, who will cut and style your hair for a small fee. A chiropodist visits the home on a regular basis to provide specialist footcare, once again for a small fee. We also receive regular visits from dentists, nurses, GPs and opticians. If you would like to see any of these, please speak to the home manager who will make provisions for them to visit you.

Have visited residents for nearly two years, once a week. I started visiting a friend, then made numerous new friends and continued visiting after the original friend died.
I have always enjoyed the visits, a friendly atmosphere and a welcome from both staff and residents.
The staff are caring and are obviously liked and appreciated by residents.
There is an overall air too of cleanliness and caring.

We viewed 12 homes for my mother and Swiss Cottage stood out as having outstanding kindness and respect for their clients. The staff are friendly and happy, making the clients more relaxed. They go the extra mile to make clients active and stimulated with regular activities. There are other homes locally that are more modern, but the most important thing is the enthusiasm and dedication of the staff, which gives Swiss Cottage a homely and relaxing atmosphere for my mother.

I found the staff very friendly and caring to me and my mother. The rooms were clean and tidy and all relevant checks and paperwork were always up to date. My mother enjoyed the choice of meals on the menu and during the later stages of her dementia, the staff carefully spoon fed her. Overall, her care was excellent.

Our daughter has been nursed at Swiss Cottage with Multiple Sclerosis for over eight years. We have always found the staff and management kind, caring and professional. The home has always been spotless with no unpleasant smells. We understand the management skills required to make Swiss Cottage a success.

We have been visiting 2/3 times a week for 15 months. This home should have 5 stars. Staff wonderful at all levels, everybody treats all patients by their Christian names. Would and have recommended it to anybody.
We have had reasons to visit as many as 6 other homes - no comparison.
