“I visit my wife on a weekly basis and on all my visits, the care that is shown to the residents is excellent. I am treated with respect and my health and care are asked about.
ย 
I travel one hour to get to the home, the senior carer always asks if I want a drink. When asked, I can only speak highly of the care my wife is receiving. She is really looked after well at Brough Lodge.โ€

“Due to dementia, Mum lived with me for 18 months until her needs exceeded my capabilities. I feared that she would miss the love and care I provided when she moved to care home. I could not have been more wrong.
ย 
The staff at Meadow View have been amazing allowing Mum to settle in very quickly. Her room is lovely and she had a perm on her second day which was very important to her. Family visitors have been well looked after and we all feel that Mum could not be in a better place.โ€
