Westerlands Care Village in Brough (Brough Lodge)
“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.
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.”

Meadow View in Alcester
“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.
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.”

“The staff at Springhill were amazing! Our mum was sent to Springhill from the local hospital for rehabilitation. The manager was extremely helpful from the start. She explained all the procedures and sorted out the correct care Mum would need.
Unfortunately, Mum took a turn for the worse, but the nursing staff took great care of her and kept her pain-free and comfortable. She died peacefully, and the staff were caring right up to the end.”
