Testimonials at Meadowcroft Residential Care Home


“The food is just lovely, the level of service is excellent. All staff are wonderful, and I appreciate everything they do for me.”


“My mother has been in this care home for the last 2 years as she suffers from dementia. The manager Pam and her staff care for my mum as if she was their own mother. She has made many friends and is very happy. The environment is happy and carefree. She can have time with friends or time on her own in her own room, scattered with possessions. All I can say is that this is a home to be proud of. Well done Pam.”


“A very loving and caring environment. The staff work very hard to provide many varied activities for the residents. As a visitor you are always made to feel welcome.”


“From the moment we first viewed Meadowcroft we knew it was a lovely place. It felt homely, and the atmosphere was very welcoming. All areas were spotlessly clean and fresh, the lounge a cheery place to be, and the dining room wonderful and bright. It was evident though photographs and craft work in the hall way of the frequent activities that take place for the residents. The care that my Nan received was impeccable. Pam and her team could not do enough to help my Nan or us relatives. Thank you to everyone at Meadowcroft. Cannot recommend highly enough.”


“A warm, (both temperature and atmosphere!) caring environment, where all the staff are friendly, cheerful, constantly mindful of each resident's well being and always ready to help/answer queries. A varied programme of activities is offered, both inside and outside of the home. We cannot praise all the staff enough for how they have made our mother happy and comfortable: the move into the home was such a smooth transition with a minimum of upset to our mother. Thank you seems such an inadequate phrase for how we feel, but thank you - we are so grateful for everything you have done and continue to do.”


“The staff are very friendly to visitors and residents alike. They do many varied activities with the residents and you feel that they are genuinely concerned for their wellbeing. The fact that mum is always hugging the staff is the best testament to that fact.”


“My reasons for recommendation are:- The home is 'safe', friendly and forthcoming with queries. The home provides a family atmosphere yet professionalism with residents and family are second to none. Clean, a good varied menu, entertainment in and out of doors. Most of all caring environment, pleasant very helpful staff.”


“Fantastic, manager polite and professional. Every issue, no matter how small is always dealt with immediately. Staff are very approachable, helpful and friendly, always smiling. There is always a full social activity calendar. We could not ask for kinder treatment.”
