What others have to say

Here are just some of the comments we’ve received from family, friends and residents at Mills Meadow care home.

Following my visit to see my mother for the first time in three months [due to Covid], I am pleased to have encountered calm and friendly professionalism. I have been a devoted fan of your brilliant staff ever since my mother moved to Mills Meadow and my visit served to deepen my admiration and respect for the work that you do. Thank you for everything.

My sincere thank you to all staff for your kindness and help during my four weeks stay.

Resident, October 2019

They know a lot about her background like where she was born, a lot about her working life, things she's interested in and that sort of thing, they are very aware of her as an individual.

Mrs J. R, Relative of a resident, July 2019

I think whenever there has been an issue, for example; a couple of times she has gone to hospital as an emergency, the staff are on it, they know what’s going on, they know her medical history in discussions we have, deal with things promptly and things always worked out very well.

Relative of a resident, July 2019

I was so relieved to get [Mum] into such a lovely place with such great people to care for her. Thank you so very much for what you did for us. We had looked at lots of care homes in the area and Mills Meadow stood out as the very best. From our initial enquiry and visit, it was clear that this was a very well-run home with excellent facilities, efficient and welcoming staff, and an atmosphere that made me think 'this is the place I want Mum to be'.
