For the last 10 years or so M has been resident Chelston Park nursing home in Wellington, Somerset and she could not have had better care. For most of the time, she has been semi-comatose but the staff patiently feed and talk to her and in the afternoon would put her in a wheelchair and wheel her into the lounge so she could look out over the gardens. All her visitors were offered tea or coffee and biscuits. On our final visit last Wednesday we went into her room to the sound of soft piano music; the nursing sister had put her phone with an app on relaxing piano music on M’s pillow.

Dear Simona and staff, 

Just a short note to thank you all very much for the excellent nursing care and attention you recently gave to Mrs K during the last month of her long life.

Although she had only a short stay in your nursing home, she was happy and content that she was looked after so well.

Your first-class sympathetic care really helped at the end of her life. We were pleased to welcome as Simona to D’s funeral – a comfort to both of us.

…we had been told by a number of people that the outstanding place to stay is Chelston Park. This is turned out to be no exaggeration.

Our initial unannounced visit to the home left us knowing that we had at last found the right place for mum. We were made most welcome, shown around by senior members of staff who answered all questions in a most professional manner. We also talked to ordinary members of staff and some residents and witnessed staff providing just the care we were looking for.

From the moment mum moved into the home she and we, her relatives, could not have been treated in a more compassionate and caring manner. Nothing was too much trouble…

To all the staff, 

A big thank you for your kindness and patience towards D whilst caring for her. The family very much appreciate all that you do to make her comfortable, also the support which he gave to the family.

With our very best wishes,

J and family

I just read of your outstanding rating from CQC. My father was at Chelston for nearly three years until his death last year in May. As a family were always so happy with the care and kindness you and your staff showed our Dad, and we are so pleased that you have received such well-deserved recognition. Congratulations to you all, and thank you again for all the care you gave to our father.
Best wishes to you all, S

Dear Jo,
I would like to thank you and all the staff of Chelston Park & Gardens for the great care you gave to my Husband during the time he was with you. It was a great comfort to myself & the family to know that he was being looked after by such caring & dedicated people. They are just like friends.
I’m greatly touched by the fact that some came to his funeral at St John’s Church & stayed afterwards.
Our best wishes to you all              ER & family
