I would highly recommend Bradbury House care home. The manageress and staff are absolutely wonderful.

Review of Bradbury House

My Mum was a resident in Bradbury House for 5 years up until last November and the care and attention she received from the staff was wonderful. The staff and manager were always on hand for relatives too, putting their minds at rest on any worries. The food was always freshly prepared and appetising - residents were always encouraged to drink plenty too and taken to the toilet at regular intervals. I visited the home three times a week, and Mum always looked lovely (jewellery to match her outfit) and she really enjoyed all the activities and outings. A lovely home from home with wonderful staff.

Review of Bradbury House

My father has been in Bradbury house for the last six moths and has been welcomed into the home in a warm and welcoming manner. The care he has received has been outstanding in every way and nothing is too much trouble for the staff. Bradbury house may not have the grounds and facilities of some of the other homes but more than compensates with their care and understanding.

Review of Bradbury House

Bradbury House provides every bit of care and love any family could ask for, all staff take their time to get to know each resident individually and express constant love and care for all residents. It was always a joy to visit my nan in the home and I know that the entire family appreciate all the care that was given to my nan during her stay at Bradbury. As a family we received so much support when my nan passed away and are so grateful for the home as it gave my nan all the care she needed and more.
