Meadow View in Alcester

Meadow View in Alcester received this outstanding review on carehome.co.uk! A massive well done to the incredible staff team ?? “My mum has been at Meadow View for six months, and during this time, I have seen a huge improvement in her health and well-being. She feels happy, safe and secure and has made new friends. My mum is joining in with the activities, and I love to see her dancing in the videos that the managers send to my family. The manager and staff here and wonderful, and I leave the home knowing my mum is well taken care of and happy!”  

Chestnut House in Marton

Karin has been ill lately, so much so that she has not been able to venture out for weeks now. For years Karin never missed a Wednesday Shopping Day, so last week we got her into town for Shopping Day. Her local bank, who have known her for years, had been waiting to give out a customer of the month and they had chosen Karin. 2 of the staff surprised her with a beautiful bag of goodies. This is just what Karin needed and there were tears all round ❤
