Very pleased to see my friend doing well, seems settled, health has improved – a pleasant start to the new year with a nice hair & beard cut.

Having my mum in Mellifont gives us peace of mind that she is well cared for in a safe environment.

I see here that there is clear evidence of staff being supportive of the residents, very person focused. Also very supportive of family members when they were upset. First time to Mellifont Abbey and I was very impressed.

I feel Mellifont Abbey is very homely & has a friendly environment. Friends & family are always welcome here. I feel it has a good management team, trying hard to continually improve the quality of care. I have no concerns and happy to arrange permanent placement.

I was impressed by the ‘buzz’ of the house as soon as I entered. It was a homely atmosphere, very light & bright. Residents that I saw looked content & well cared for. The group really enjoyed each others company and interacting. I felt its welcoming & friendly atmosphere here at Mellifont.

Staff are really attentive and knowledgeable about their residents. The home is very clean, homely & well decorated. When I arrived there was a resident playing the piano with a member of staff. Very personalised & demonstrated that activities are available for residents, I didn’t feel like I was in a care home.

A beautiful day to spend an afternoon in Wookey with a first time visit to Mellifont Abbey Residential Care Home.
The drive through Mark & Wedmore was stunning, all the beautiful farmhouses & Georgian style houses surrounded by blooming wysteria & elegant trees in their spring-blossom-gowns!
All of a sudden, the satnav said, “You have reached your destination.” But I hadn’t! So, I pulled into the car park of a local pub & called the home. Luckily, I was only a stones throw away...had to turn down a small side road & a member of staff stood at the gates to wave me in!  Once past the gorgeous, large wrought iron gates, what a view met me! I fell in love instantly, a cross between ‘I Capture The Castle’ & ‘Hogwarts’ 💕As the name would suggest, it is a former convent and there is an air of calm & peace about the place!
The Activities Coordinator showed me in to the fabulous dining room & introduced me to all the residents & the furry cat came in from the garden for a cuddle too!
A mixed programme of songs, which the residents joined in with, accompanying me with the percussion instruments I took in my basket of tricks! Afterwards I was treated to tea & a tour & couldn’t help myself taking many pictures!  A really lovely home with lovely carers, staff & residents, a joyful way to spend a sunny day, Looking forward to a return visit…!
(And I managed all this in new shoes!)
