Review of Woodlands Park Care Centre

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!

Review of Woodlands Park Care Centre

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.

Review of Woodlands Park Care Centre

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.

Review of Woodlands Park Care Centre

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!

Review of Woodlands Park Care Centre

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.

Review of Woodlands Park Care Centre

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!'
