Originally an imposing private residence, Woodpeckers has been tastefully extended and adapted to provide every modern convenience, while still retaining a homely atmosphere. The Home is situated in the village of Brockenhurst in the heart of the beautiful New Forest and is within walking distance of local shops, the church and doctor's surgery.

At Woodpeckers there is a choice of comfortable lounges where you can socialise, watch television or just spend some quiet time; and an attractive conservatory where many great activities take place. It overlooks the pretty landscaped garden which has been purposely designed for wheelchair users as well as walkers. The dining room provides waitress service and choices of excellent home made food; the meals are balanced and nutritious and special diets can also be provided. Cakes are the speciality here!

The bedrooms are tastefully furnished and most have en-suite facilities for privacy and convenience. You can make your room as homely as you like by bringing your own pictures, ornaments and small pieces of furniture.

Review of Woodpeckers

I couldn't recommend Woodpeckers highly enough. They looked after my mother in an exemplary way, the staff were always so kind and patient. Sadly she was not able to take part in the activities of the home before she died, but I could see on my regular visits that the residents enjoyed themselves. The whole place had a very pleasant and friendly atmosphere.

Review of Woodpeckers

My wife who has Parkinson's decease has been a resident for over one year. The home manager has an open door policy so communication with her is readily available and requests are dealt with effectively and immediately. All staff are well trained and professional and are caring, efficient and welcoming. The home is definitely clean and well maintained. Cooking and baking are in-house and the food excellent, laundry is also in-house with personal daily attention. The home documentation is precise with the care plan clearly drawn up. We have total confidence in the home and its level of care.

Review of Woodpeckers

My mother is in Woodpeckers for respite following ten days in hospital for pneumonia. Her recovery has been remarkable due to the friendly attention of the staff at Woodpeckers and the quality of the food. I can't discuss value for money as I have nothing to compare with.

Review of Woodpeckers

My husband is 85. He has severe spinal problems and a degree of dementia. He has been in the home now for three years and I visit him every afternoon. He needs increasing help with 'toileting', which is well provided by the staff, with sensitive care for his dignity. He has a room with essential large toilet, which is kept very clean. He enjoys the meals, but is reluctant to be taken to the dining room for them. Residents are given the choice over such matters, and many others. Activities offered do not appeal to him as a rule.

Review of Woodpeckers

The manager and her team at Woodpeckers provide a wonderful quality of care and compassion which in turn, provides a very happy feeling of one big family. The ticks in the boxes speak for themselves. My mother is resident there and she is living proof with her display of happiness and laughter, bearing in mind how ill she was before going there.
