Leila W - June 2017


I wanted to commend this care home. Beautiful surroundings with active garden of vegetables, flowers, animals - guineapigs/rabbits/fish. The clients are all happy, there are plenty of activities to do - I saw "Alive" sing a long session. The carers when I showed them their stroke patients first walk started to cry with joy. They have all taken on board the manual handling care plan and help him to walk as much as he can. This in turn helped his confidence and strength with standing and walking - well done!

Clare S - Healthcare Professional - May 2017


My Sister-in-Law is very happy, she likes all the very kind staff. They speak very respectfully to everyone. There are activities most days and my Sister-in-Law is looking forward to her first outing at the end of the month. The manager and her staff are very approachable and understanding. We, the family, are very pleased that we have found a home from home for our relative. Ps. You can have a late breakfast if you want to lie in!

S B - May 2017


My father moved into Primrose Lodge when it was decided he was not coping living on his own. Prior to the move, he was having difficulties with his own personal care, eating problems, was depressed etc. From day one he had a new zest for life, was far more happy, contented, active and this has continued during the last five months. In my opinion, this a miracle is due to the professional management and staff at Primrose who clearly have a great deal of knowledge, experience, and commitment in caring for the elderly.

Primrose Lodge feels like a “home”, a good atmosphere and visitors are warmly welcomed. The staff are always helpful and friendly and have excellent relationships with the residents. Regarding the facilities: the rooms, lounge, dining room are homely environments. The meals have choices, much of the food is homemade and very tasty. There is a varied and interesting activity programme and trips out. My father has benefitted greatly during the time he has been at Primrose.

My dad has been here for a few weeks. Lovely friendly staff, nothing is too much trouble. Every day when we visit my dad, he's always smiling and having tea and cake and trying to laugh and has settled in very well. Any questions we ask are always answered.

Primrose Lodge TestimonialsSon of Resident

My friend has settled well at Primrose Lodge due to the caring family atmosphere. The staff are lovely and always welcome us warmly. The activities organiser does a very good job by arranging a number of fun outings and activities. The pretty garden, where residents can sit out, is a real bonus. Our friend has a number of medical problems and we are kept informed and involved in GP/hospital appointments. The standard of care is very good. Well done to all at Primrose Lodge.

Primrose Lodge TestimonialsFriend of Resident

I cannot rate Primrose Lodge highly enough. My Father has been a resident since September 2014. He went in for a fortnight respite care whilst some work was being carried out on his bungalow and when the fortnight was up he asked if he could stay. The residents rooms are really nice, spacious and nicely furnished. The staff are amazing. So kind and caring. There is a very homely feel to Primrose Lodge. Staff are really welcoming to visitors/relations and are always available to talk anything over. The food is very good.

I have been lucky enough to have tasted the home made cakes. No wonder my Dad has put on weight! He had an awful experience spending 4 weeks in hospital and it was touching how upset the staff at Primrose Lodge were, when he returned to them in a very poor state. I feel they treat the residents very much as individuals. They remind Dad when snooker or cricket is on television. Again I would be happy to recommend the home to anyone.

Primrose Lodge TestimonialsDaughter of Resident

Primrose Lodge TestimonialsResident

Primrose Lodge Southbourne is a wonderful care home with a great community atmosphere. There is a great cross section of staff, male and female and mature and younger. There are always events and activities planned and yet at no time are the resident's obligated if they don't wish.

The house is situated in beautiful well maintained grounds and there are communal pets and a fish tank, all things that I know the resident's take great pleasure from.

Primrose Lodge TestimonialsNephew of Resident

Since my mother arrived , the change in her has been incredible. To see her smile, sing and talk again – i know she is happy and cared for. I could not ask for more. An excellent manager with wonderful staff. Special tanks for making Mums 95th birthday so enjoyable.

High quality of genuine caring attention of all caring staff and other staff. Extensive improvements made to the home. The premises is always welcoming and bright to visit. Regular personal care, hair and nails. My friend is bed ridden, but mobile residents have regular events to enjoy. Visitors are always made welcome.

Primrose Lodge TestimonialsThelma

I and both of my sisters have worked in nursing within BMR hospitals within cancer care and orthopedics, therefore I feel quite qualified to comment. I can really never find things to complain about, never any aroma, always friendly. Mum would be quite able to judge if things were not to her liking. Well done Primrose Lodge, manager and staff.

Primrose Lodge TestimonialsHeather

Debbie I wanted to say a big thank you to all of the staff for helping to make Alice’s 100th birthday such a happy occasion.

Primrose Lodge TestimonialsPeter

Dear Debbie, just a note of appreciation to you and all of your staff for the extra celebrations you organise for the residents and their families throughout the year.  It is much appreciated by those who live there and their families, although probably not always voiced. You and your team are a happy band of carers and that is what makes Primrose Lodge a successful and comfortable home for the their [residents] twilight years, and it gives families peace of mind. Keep up the good work.

Primrose Lodge TestimonialsPearl and Co

I just wanted to say a big thank you for how caring you were with my grandma over the years. In recent times it could be upsetting when she did not recognise me or stay awake but I always left heartened that she was cared for so very well by her second family. Thank you

Primrose Lodge TestimonialsCharlotte

To Debbie, all the girls, Tony, Steve and John. I just want to say a massive thank you for everything you have done for mum over the last two years and particularly these last few weeks as mum became progressively more ill.

The care and attention you gave her those last few days were very comforting for me and you made my time of just sitting with mum more bearable. Once again, many thanks.

Primrose Lodge TestimonialsLove Sue

Many thanks for your attention to Mum and a willingness to talk to the family if we have any queries. Mum is well cared for which makes life easier for us – if we have anxieties we know we can speak to the staff.

Primrose Lodge TestimonialsLynda T

Primrose Lodge TestimonialsEvelyn Allan

I would like to thank everyone at Primrose Lodge for the care taken of mum during her stay with you. Within a couple of weeks, she was transformed into her old self and for the first time for a long time I had the pleasure of seeing her laugh, she was so relaxed and content. She always had a good word for the staff who looked after her, how caring they were and how she could not wish for better.

Primrose Lodge TestimonialsGordon Birkwood

All the staff are excellent here and very kind and the food is very good.
