Peaker Park in Market Harborough
“My grandad went to Peaker Park on a temporary basis for an assessment period after a stressful stay in hospital. The care staff here were amazing and made sure that he settled into the home and enjoyed his stay there.
He was able to make friends with other residents and have a laugh with carers. The care home is lovely and clean and tidy and has a great garden where residents can spend some time out in the fresh air.
There was a lovely homely feel to the place. If it wasn’t for the distance from our home, we’d have loved for him to stay here.”

She was well looked after, the staff are friendly and caring, and nothing is too much trouble for them. I will definitely use Hawkhurst again for respite care, highly recommended.
Big thank you to all staff and residents for making my mum so welcome and happy whilst with you”
