Menwinnion Country House Care Home

I have been here for over three years. When I came here with a friend who I had lived and worked with for 64 years she was ill and died ten months later, I would recommend the care and compassion she was given. I had much love and understanding you could ever wish to have.

Menwinnion Country House Care Home

My father has been a resident at Menwinnion for just over a year after an urgent search by social services. It was just a fluke that the only available place was there. I am very pleased with the result. He was confused/upset/angry at first but has settled in tremendously well and is now exceptionally happy. The (majority of) staff are fabulous and he particularly loves the food. There have been a couple of incidents re other residents but staff dealt with these very well.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.
