Woodlands Park Care Centre

I simply cannot recommend Woodlands Park highly enough. Dad has been living there for 4 months now, having been diagnosed with Alzheimer's last year. Having dreaded looking at care homes, my sister and I visited and met Marie and some of her team and left feeling that Dad not only would be safe and cared for, but even better happy there. The staff are incredible, they are always positive, helpful, supportive and we know Dad is being cared for in the best possible way, treated with dignity and most importantly safe and secure. We know he is well fed - so important as he was forgetting to eat - and particularly all his medication is being expertly coordinated between Marie, Sally, Judy and his care team, the GP and the Adult Mental Health Care team (the wonderful Rachel). We had reached crisis point, and had to act quickly. It felt to us as though the whole team moved heaven and earth to make Dad's move there possible. The relief we feel is enormous. Dad may have his challenging days, but he loves all the carers and calls Woodlands Park home. Thank you so much to Marie, Sally and Judy as well as the whole team, too many to mention, not only for caring so wonderfully for Dad but for the unexpected but invaluable support for us as a family.

Mum moved here just over a month ago after living in a number of care homes where she was clearly not happy. Woodlands Park seems to have given mum a new lease of life. The staff are so warm and friendly and this is so very noticeable the minute I enter the home well done Sally and Maria and all the wonderful staff. Thank you for making mum so happy.

Marie Shouler and her team of staff are truly amazing. My dad has been at Woodlands now for just over 2 years and the level of commitment and care the staff give him and all the other residents is second to none. My father's dementia means he suffers from very dark days at times, but whenever I visit the staff are so friendly, positive and up beat - it makes my visits seem all the more worthwhile. I am greeted as a member of the Woodlands family and given support too. At a recent Christmas dinner the staff managed to get dad up on his feet dancing - it was a joy to see. I would have no qualms recommending Woodlands to any relative who has to make the hardest decision possible of putting a loved one in a care home. Woodlands is excellent and I feel we certainly made the right choice. He could not be in a better place.

To entrust someone other than yourself to care for the person you have loved and shared your life for almost 60 years, is the most heart braking decision one will ever have to make. Barbara spent two short stays in local care homes that my family and I felt didn't give is peace of mind. At Woodlands the change in my wife has been so comforting for us. Its warm, friendly, the staff are so caring!

The building is a splendid country house with some of the best rural views I know. The staff are kind and understanding and unshockable to a degree I did not know possible. They score top marks in every possible way. I feel my father is so lucky to have found such a terrific place to live and to receive care and caring attention.

The quality of care her is amazing. The atmosphere is one of kindness, love and respect for the individual/resident. A shining example of caring for very frail sick individuals. They are treated as individuals. The love shown to them rubs off on how they react to each other.

The care and understanding of dementia provided by the staff at Woodlands Park is wonderful. This together with the leadership of Marie, provides a safe, caring and dignified environment for the residents who are treated respectfully and with consideration. The leadership is clear and thoughtful and family and friends of the residents are encouraged to become part of the 'family' of Woodlands Park, meaning that my wife and I have become more aware of the disease. My father has been a resident for nearly two years and whilst his dementia has caused me and my family some distress, the staff take all issues in their stride and show a wonderful caring attitude!

The care my mother received at Woodlands Park was second to none. All the staff without exception were so kind and caring and treated mum with dignity. It has a happy atmosphere where the residents are encouraged to feel that this is their home. Great care is taken in finding out the residents history so staff can talk to them about people they know and events that have happened in their life. Mum had dementia which is a wicked disease but the staff handled it wonderfully. I have no hesitation at all in recommending this home - the management and staff are truly angels.

This is an outstanding home for dementia sufferers. A large late Victorian house in a beautiful setting overlooking lovely Chiltern countryside. A happy family home for up to 30 residents. Such is the care and comfort given, that my wife, after almost a year's residence, is looking and feeling noticeably better in health. My motto for the manager Marie and her team is 'amo-servo-curo' - 'love! Serve! Cure!'
