My mother has been a resident at Sharnbrook House for 14 years. She is now 94 and very well cared for by staff. The home is run well and retains staff who interact sensitively and are caring with residents. Physically and emotionally, residents are well supported and encouraged to be as independent as possible. Mum is very limited in her abilities, but staff take great care of her at all times.

Sharnbrook House

After suffering a major stroke, my mother moved to Sharnbrook House 16 years ago. She is now very frail and totally dependant on others and continues to receive outstanding care in what she regards as her own home. The house and gardens are truly lovely, and it is in the centre of a village which has good amenities. It is a really lively and welcoming place with an excellent weekly time-table of varied activities. The staff are wonderful, friendly and supportive of families at times of need. My sister and I both live some distance from Sharnbrook and it has therefore been very important to us to have complete trust in the way that our mother is looked after. I cannot recommend Shanbrook highly enough. We are so lucky to have found somewhere so exceptional. This is an opportunity for me to say thank you to all the lovely people I have met who make visiting such a pleasure and who have ensured that Mum has enjoyed a quality of life over the years beyond our expectations at the outset, given her disabilities. We are looking forward to celebrating her 93rd birthday in August.
