Parents Testimonials


Daneswood offers a very good variety of social, physical and learning activities that ensure our daughter’s progress and wellbeing.

The staff provide her with a high level of care that is appropriate and sensitive to her needs. They also make every effort to keep our family informed and involved with her daily life.

We are delighted she is in an environment where she feels secure, happy and at home.


Jean and Stephen Croft

Our profoundly autistic son has been at Daneswood since 2012, and while there he has grown up to be a wonderful young man. Daneswood’s excellent staff have spent time helping him to help himself, teaching him to have confidence doing things for himself. He can now wash himself, clean his teeth, go shopping with a carer and lay the table. Daneswood has encouraged our son to enjoy a wide and varied diet, something we had never been able to achieve at home.

Daneswood has a gentle, caring and encouraging ethos, in which the residents flourish. The staff concentrate on providing the best quality of life for everyone living there, promoting life skills and patiently doing their best to make sure every resident lives their life to the full. We are very happy with care and teaching standards at Daneswood and would strongly recommend it to others for their children and loved ones.


Nigel and Marcia Coles

Entrusting the care of your son/daughter to somebody you know on a short term basis is a big decision, entrusting that care to a 3rd party “institution” “forever” is probably the biggest decision you can make.
So it is with great confidence we can say that placing our son at Daneswood was the best decision we ever made.

Our son moved into Daneswood just as he turned 18 and has been there for 8 years now and we have witnessed a superb standard of care over that time.

This was exemplified recently when he had to have his gall bladder removed at the Bristol Royal Infirmary. Daneswood immediately offered 24/7 “cover” with his carers volunteering to do double shifts at the hospital despite a long commute from Weston-Super-Mare.

This dedication is the norm at Daneswood and we cannot recommend it highly enough.


Catherine & Peter Stephenson

Our daughter was one of the first to join Daneswood and it has now been her home for the past eleven years. She loves the people and the life and we are more grateful than words can say that she is safe amongst caring, wise and sensitive people. Daneswood’s outstanding team is committed to meeting our daughter’s individual needs with continuous improvements and adjustments to her programme so that she has a rich and purposeful life. She still loves to come home to us but she clearly loves going back to her home, which is Daneswood.
