Barnfield Care Home

Barnfield prides itself on the care and attention given to residents and their families. Carers and nursing teams concentrate on getting to know residnets, enabling them to look after physical needs and more importantly delivering what emotional support residents and their family need.

Choosing a care home is one of the most difficult decisions a family member or advocate can make and Barnfield Care Home is here to help families through that decision, through the move in and beyond.

Excellent care is the key objective of each of the team members. Caring for those who can no longer look after themselves is what they do best, with an approach that takes into account that although there will be aspects of daily care and activity that residents could not manage at home, carers continue to encourage independence wherever possible - thus enabling residents to make the most of what they can do on a daily basis.

After viewing no fewer than 25 different homes for my wife, Barnfield appeared to offer everything I had prioritised and I have not been disappointed. The staff are excellent and very caring towards my wife which is reassuring to me at this very difficult time. I would have no hesitation in recommending Barnfield to anyone looking for a caring and dignified residence.

Barnfield Care Home

My wife is suffering from Semantic Dementia and when we were asked to find a care home for her I looked at in excess of 20 homes. I was most impressed by the quality of management at Barnfield and the layout of the premises and this convinced me that if I had to put trust in anyone to look after my dear wife, then these were the right people. To date I have not been disappointed.

My brother and myself visited this care home without making an appointment to have a look around to see if it was suitable for our mother. We found the staff very obliging and friendly. Nothing was to much trouble we were very happy when we left. Our mother is very happy and settled we could not have found one any better.
