Testimonials

Sue F (Wife of Resident)

Like anyone in our situation, making the decision this time last year that my husband needed full time, residential care, was an extremely hard one. However, the minute my good friend and I walked into reception, we looked at each other and knew we had found the right place. In almost 12 months, neither my husband nor I have had a single reason to doubt that the right decision was made. My husband said to me just before Christmas ‘I’m happy here, it was the best decision.’ The staff are all just exceptional and quite obviously love what they do. I spent Christmas Day and St Valentine’s Day with him and both were wonderful experiences with all the lovely things we would have had at home. I’m sure Easter Sunday would have been equally special were it not for Covid-19. Briar House is quite simply the cream of the crop and we are privileged to be part of the wider family. Thank you to all of you for all that you do.

T F (Son of Resident)

I am happy with the care received by my mother. She is well looked after, and her care has been adapted over time, to meet her changing needs as her dementia has progressed. The carers are very patient and kind.

D C (Wife of Resident)

My husband has been in Briar House for nearly 3 years and I can't praise the staff enough. Everybody is very friendly and supportive, not just to him, but to me as well.
