Review of Menwinnion Country House Care Home

Absolutely fabulous - light, airy, spotless and busy. A five star hotel with carers as staff. My dad was reluctant to go for respite but after 2 weeks he now wants to live there. Came out no longer looking frail and his speech was fluent. First time after a dense stroke in 2001. Can't praise Menwinnion enough. 10/10.

Review of Menwinnion Country House Care Home

My Mum became physically poorly with a UTI whilst at home, so she was admitted to Menwinnion Care Home for three weeks. My mum was agitated when she first arrived as she has vascular dementia and she was disorientated, the staff treated my mum with excellent care, and dignity at all times. They actually noticed my mum had sore groins and under her stomach area (the carers she had at home were neglecting her not washing,creaming her) I would recommend Menwinnion to anyone.

Review of Menwinnion Country House Care Home

Menwinnion Country House Care Home is in a beautiful rural setting and provides respite as well as permanent care with quite a high staff to resident ratio. It is peaceful and relaxing. At times it is rather like a country house hotel with really good meals served in a very civilized way. If he hadn't needed permanent care in a home with nursing too, he would still be there!

Review of Menwinnion Country House Care Home

Very, very good care by lovely caring staff in a peaceful, calm and beautiful location with wonderful respite care rooms. The food is extremely good and homemade soups every day. Everyone kind and friendly, this is the first respite at a care home so I can't very well compare it other but it has been a very good experience for over a month. I live in London so sadly can't leave my husband here.

Review of Menwinnion Country House Care Home

My father has "lost" twenty years in the ten weeks or so he has been a resident at Menwinnion, I have literally never known him so relaxed nor seen him look so well. The main factor for me is the attitude of the staff they all seem to be genuinely caring people who have shown nothing but kindness and consideration to my father and to me.

They have provided excellent care for my mother who's dementia has deteriorated considerably over the last three years. She now needs fully nursing care - feeding, washing and is nursed in bed. The staff are always attentive and caring. The management address all my concerns, I am sure all my mothers needs are met.

Review of Menwinnion Country House Care Home

I have been here one year and nine months during which time there has always been improvement (building and care) carried out. My friend who came with me died last January, she was lovingly cared for and I was helped at that special time also. Best home in the area. I am now ninety six years of age and glad to be here.
