Review of Newland Hurst on Friday 13 December 2013 by Gordon Cooper (Parent of Resident)

Our daughter has been resident since 1980 and has clearly enjoyed the lifestyle. Staff are well selected, qualified and well informed about family background. Staff arrange frequent activities, including tuition to develop skills and leisure visits to theaters, cinema, circus etc with occasional visits to restaurants for birthdays etc. Usually, in the summer, holidays are taken in small groups with two care workers. The environment, about 1 1/2 acres, is lawns, trees at the rural fringe of open country and farm land and is easily accessed by road from exit 5 of M5 motorway.

As a retired member of the council of management and as a regular visitor to Newlands Hurst, I am able to observe at first hand the overall performance of the care home for adults with learning disabilities.

I love living here, the staff are great and we have a laugh. We go out lots and see different places. Every Sunday we have a big roast dinner, it is very tasty. We all sit around together, we are a big family. We have lots of parties here too, where all our friends and families come too. In the residents' meeting we have our say and plan new things.

Review of Newland Hurst on Tuesday 26 November 2013 by Alan (Father of resident)

Our daughter has been at Newland Hurst for over fifteen years and has been very happy in the time she has been there. There is always something going on which she can join in if she wishes. We do say she has a better social life than us. Most have the staff have been there a long time and the atmosphere is more like one big family than a residential home.

Review of Newland Hurst on Sunday 24 November 2013 by Ric (Brother of resident)

My sister has been a resident here for many years and appears to have been very happy the entire time. All the residents are treated as individuals and adults and are given the freedom and opportunity to pursue their preferred interests from the wide variety made available or requested. Every time I see my sister she has multiple stories of the recent activities she has indulged in and the places she has been that come bubbling out in a stream of excitement. After a few days with the family she is always happy to return home.
