What others have to say

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

Staff at Mountfitchet House have been infinitely kind and caring towards my sister who moved into the nursing wing after an operation. It has been a big upheaval for her – a change from living independently – and the nursing team are working really hard to help her and provide excellent nursing for her complex physical needs. I believe it’s the best choice I could have made for her.

Relative of resident, December 2020

My mum was in a care home before and was not treated very well, the care here is excellent.

Relative of a resident, April 2021

They allow her to do her painting, they let her sing. They take her out of the care home, they take her round the gardens. They sit and talk to her at night when she is awake and they give her time to herself.

Relative of a resident, July 2019

It’s more like a hotel than a care home. The people working there make everyone feel welcome.

Ms Claire Lee, November 2018

I would like to thank you for your help, patience, kindness, tolerance and understanding over recent months, which has been appreciated at a difficult time. Your carers have without exception, gone above and beyond to help Mum into your home. With much appreciation for all you have done for us.
