” Nursing home lovely family run caring nursing home. Very caring staff who very lovingly take care of the residents. Very happy place where the staff interact with the residents.
Alka is a wonderful caring manager, making sure the nursing home is run very efficiently. She keeps the families updated on progress of your loved ones & contacts you if there are any problems/changes. Arranges activities for residents/family evenings and with the help of her wonderful staff makes the nursing home a very happy place. I would highly recommend the prince of Wales nursing home.”

“ Here are my thoughts , I like to think that the home provides a safe and calm environment for those nearing end of life, and a safe and stimulating environment for more alert residents Our Mum has complex mental health needs, so kindness, entertainment and encouragement are essential to keep her mood up. Regarding the role of the manager, I feel it is to ensure the staff are well trained and motivated, and that they ensure residents are not left for too long staring into space.”

Residents Family Member
” For me the striking and admirable quality displayed by your role was the duty of care displayed not only to your residents but to your staff and potential future residents. The fact that you took time to assess the potential impact of my aunt becoming a resident of POW For the current residents environment, was Mrs going to be disruptive, would her presence/behaviours diminish the sense of ‘home and safety’ enjoyed by the residents? For the staff, was the impact of Mrs behaviours due to her mental health history going to put your staff at risk? For Mrs did you have the right staffing ratio, did your staff have the skills and knowledge to be able to care for Mrs. Really doing your upmost to understand Mrs needs and your team’s ability and suitability to meet them before accepting Mrs.- those were the trademarks for me of a nursing care home manager that really cared about ‘people’ and not just about filling an empty resident room. Managers of care homes must never forget the residents are fragile, individual people whose need for warmth, love, laughter and friendship is the same as you and I and the job should never be about simply managing a business. as for the home… the above feeds into that, simply that in every sense POW truly is a home. The residents are family, the staff are family there is a palpable sense of belonging, warmth and genuine care. Thanks Alka, for all you do in leading your team in all that they do!”

“The first time I work at prince of Wales nursing home, I felt the different, I could see that family spirit and good team work among the staff and the caring nature of the staff. I noticed the physical appearance of the residents, they were well looked after by the staff and you could see how close the staff are with the residents. I do enjoy how others staff from different departments show interest to the care need of the residents. During this period of the covid 19, Prince Of Wales nursing home is a place you will like to work, all the staff are aware of the risk of covid, they fellow the government guide line of PPE, and the safety of both them and residents. The staff work in confidence and no fear in them which gives that continuity of care, love and respect to the residents. On the TV they had their Tv Chanel before the covid 19 came and took over the media which has help in the emotional and psychological mine set of the staff and the residents. The home manager Alka, is one of a kind, hard to fine now in health care sector as manager She got and inside of her residents. Alka is one of those managers who have their hands on in doing things for the residents like help in feeding, taking the residents to toilet when staff are busy, taking part in handover ,very good listening skills to the residents as she spends time with the residents. Alka play a very active role in the life of the residents, she those activities with the residents five days a week which the residents enjoy and it gives them something to look forward to. With the lock down Alka has encouraged family to call their love ones on face time? She also updated the family with any reviews and health conditions of the residents. I do enjoy her management skills and I wish most managers should be like her. She look after her staff”
