Meadow View in Alcester
“My father was a resident of Meadow View Care Centre from March 2019 until his passing in November 2022, at age 101.
While there, he lived a happy and contented life. The manager and staff were very caring and made his time there happy. The standard of care was above excellent and nothing was too much regarding his physical and mental well-being.
My father was one of “the family” and his dignity was upheld at all times. If their qualities are what you are looking for I would recommend Meadow View Care Centre without hesitation”
