“I moved into Tennyson just 2 months after it opened its beautiful here, a brand new building and large gardens. I like it here because I feel safe as not just any one can come in, I also feel safe as the carers are here all day and all night so if I fall or become unwell I can use my pendant and the carers are there. I just love it we have film afternoons, games evenings, take away nights the carers are all lovely and we have lots of laughs together I am so happy her.”

“I only moved to Tennyson at the start of lockdown, I moved from my bungalow as I needed more care due to my health reasons. I chose a top floor flat as it has a beautiful view over the Blackdown Hills, it’s a lovely modern building and I enjoy the gardens very much. It’s a very safe environment as there is a door entry system, I also feel relaxed knowing the care staff are here all the time, the care staff are fabulous I like every one of them and nothing is too much trouble for them, I cannot fault my care at all.”

“We were initially attracted to Tennyson Court because it offered two bedroomed flats, with an extra care scheme attached giving 24 hour cover. With our health becoming more of a problem as we got older, it seemed a safer bet to be there. In addition to this were the facilities with in it, like the roof terrace, hair salon, laundry and communal areas etc. We have both become more in need of help so it was an ideal choice and we enjoy the activities here, and of course we have the lovely care staff on site.”
