My Mum spent 18 wonderful months at the Chestnuts. When we realised it was time for Mum to be looked after, I spent many hours going around different care homes in Weymouth. As soon as I walked into the Chestnuts, I was taken with the "homely" feeling and warmest of the home. Mum settled in immediately and the carers soon became like an extended family. She enjoyed the afternoon activity events, loved the food and made many friends there. I could visit Mum at any time and was always welcomed with a smile and a cup of tea. In her final days, her care was so personal and warm. They decorated her room with butterflies on the walls and moved her bed so she could see out of the window into the garden. She received the best care possible and was always treated with respect and dignity. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending the Chestnuts.
