From our residents and families
“Just to thank you for all your hard work over the past few weeks. Knowing mum is safe and well cared for has made all the difference to me.”
“Ivy said how grateful she was to the two night staff on duty as she had suffered a really bad coughing fit and had been quite distressed by it. Ivy said that the carers stayed with her and bought in her spacer and inhaler and also assisted her out of bed in to her chair where she was more comfortable. Ivy added that they were wonderful and very kind and she was very grateful.”
“Wild Acres is absolutely amazing! My aunt is so happy and settled here. All of the carers go way beyond their job description and really engage with the residents. Laughter is heard frequently. The activities are extremely well organised. The food is perfect. I could not recommend this home enough.”
“Since Mum moved into Wild Acres in May, we have seen such a positive transformation. No longer lonely, smiles all the time, loves the staff and food. Mum enjoys the activities, looks healthier, well cared for and is thriving. It has a home from home atmosphere. Both Mum and I could no be happier.”
“Thank you for all your efforts in supporting Alice and other residents during this difficult time.”
“I wanted to feedback about Wild Acres whilst I was there to check that Conditions had been met. They most certainly had. They have been diligent in considering Consent, MCA and Best Interests in all areas of accommodation, care and treatment. If there are any Conditions to meet they are done promptly. It is most certainly heart warming and of course providing the person in the centre of this with protection that they need within the DOLS framework.”
“When I first walked into Wild Acres, I got a feeling of family cosiness and that’s just how it is. All the staff are so friendly, kind and helpful. Nothing is too much trouble. All residents are lovingly cared for and made to feel at home. I could not have chosen a better, nicer nor more friendly place for my husband to be cared for and he seems very content.”
“My mother is very well looked after at Wild Acres and I do not worry about her care. If anything is needed the staff email me and any matters are dealt with immediately. The care staff are always pleasant and her care is excellent.”
“You are all true heroes at Wild Acres and I am sure I speak for all the relatives when I say a HUGE THANK YOU to you all for keeping things going so well during these difficult times. You are all stars and I salute you!!”
“Thank you so much for the caring. I’m most grateful to you and your wonderful staff”

“A big thank you to all at Wild Acres for doing such a sterling job during this virus crisis. Thank you all for keeping my mum safe.”
“We would like to say a huge thank you to you all for the care you provided for our beloved mum/nanna Roberta. Watching her struggle with dementia has been very hard but made all the easier knowing that she was cared for and loved by you all. We would also like to thank you for allowing us and our father/grandfather to visit her during these challenging times. The work you do is life changing. Please know that our family is so incredibly grateful for all you have done. Our Roberta was at peace in her last days and that is thanks to you.”
