Testimonials

Learn how the work we do here at The Drive Care Homes is improving the lives of our services users and redefining the care industry.

Staff members are always very welcoming and happy

Social Worker of Service User at Swanley House

I am always very impressed with the positive atmosphere in the home. The staff members are always very welcoming and happy to share information. The children’s rooms are kept clean and the rest of the home is also kept to a very high standard.

They provide a wide variety of food taking into consideration the children’s cultural background.

I think that the staff members at Swanley House have been doing their best to ensure that my young person lives in a stable home. They have provided additional support during very challenging times to prevent the placement from breaking down.

There is a clear routine in place for my young person which is also important as it helps to reduce his anxieties and he is very familiar with the staff members.

Settled, happy and calls Swanley House her “home”

Social Worker of Service User at Swanley House

JH talks positively about staff and peers and of her experience of life in the home. I put this down to the excellent and efficient support that the staff have provided JH with.

They have already provided her with a strong and secure foundation to this new stage in her life. I have excellent communication with manager and staff which ensures JH needs are being advocated for and met to a high standard. JH is settled, happy and calls Swanley House her  “home”. This is very reassuring for me as her social worker.

Impressed by the care

Senior Social Worker of Service User at Dartford House

Overall I think the quality of service provided to the two young people who attend Dartford House for respite is excellent.

I have been impressed by the care provided.

 The home was clean and tidy. The bedrooms are nice and spacious and there is plenty of space for young people within the common areas and in the garden.

Activities are planned and well organised within the home or when going out in the community.

Both parents are very happy with the service which is important to note.
