St Michaels in WaddingtonWe received this outstanding review on carehome.co.uk! A massive well done to the incredible staff team 👏👏 “This home was excellent in the care it provided, from the domestic staff, catering, carers and management; everyone was approachable and acted on requests/concerns promptly or at the earliest possible time (i.e. needs a haircut, nails need cutting). Was treated with care, dignity and respect at all times. They also dealt with the pandemic while still giving excellent care to the residents.”

“Me and my wife care for my downs syndrome brother and we were so lucky to find the Netherlands care home for his respite care, in one word the place is amazing he is so happy there.
As soon as you walk through the door you’re greeted with a warm smile from the staff and the residents they all know my brother by name and he has settled in already, he really loves the entertainment with all the singing and dancing.
The care that the staff provide is top class and you can see they really do care. The whole home has a warm happy atmosphere. I really do recommend the Netherlands to anyone”
