North Ferriby Nursing Home

33 years of delivering quality care




"We wish to thank you and your splendid staff for the excellent care given to my late father during his all too short stay at North Ferriby Nursing Home. We were pleased that he spent his final days in a wonderful caring environment." (May 2015)

"Thank you so much for looking after my Dad so well during his time with you. The nurses were so kind, gentle and loving. It really helped me to see he was in such good, caring hands when he was so poorly and disabled. Thanks to everyone for all you did for Dad and also for helping me and Mum through a very difficult time. Best wishes." (Nov 2015)

"Thank you very much for all the kindness and care you showed to my husband.Every time I visited he was being well cared for. His illness meant that he required a lot more nursing and handling than the average resident. You were all cheerful and caring and that made the situation for all the family much easier." (Nov 2015)

"To all the lovely care and nursing staff who took fantastic care of our Grandad. Thank you for all that you did for him, we are very greatful [for] how you looked after himin his final months." (Dec 2015)
