What our clients have to say about us


My mother has been staying at Wisdom Court for 2 weeks' respite. The carers and management are marvellous - very kind and patient with my mum who has Vascular Dementia. When my mum gets too ill for me to care for her, I will be putting her into Wisdom Court full-time.

Christine J (Daughter of Resident)


Gratitude to you all for the wonderful care and support you gave to both Mum and I during her time at Wisden Court.  Being able to spend those final days with Mum were a precious gift that I will carry with me always.  Without the compassion and understanding you all gave me I doubt I'd have coped.  At such a difficult and heartbreaking time, I have drawn so much comfort from knowing that Mum died peacefully, pain-free and where she'd have wanted to be - in my arms.  For all that, I can only say "Thank you" from the bottom of my broken heart.
