I would recommend the nursing home to anyone considering using the home. The staff are genuine in the care of my mum and I know she is loved and cared for. I can come to the home and treat is as such, the manager once said to me, while your mum is in our care this is her home and therefore yours. Those words meant the world and I have lived by this, I don't visit mum I spend my time at mums.

The consistent care, compassion and kindness shown to my husband by the staff at this home has enabled him to settle in and relax in his new surroundings. That kindness has been extended to our family - we are encouraged to visit at any time, and all our questions and concerns have been dealt with immediately. I highly recommend Brimington care home.

I cannot speak highly enough of these people. The care our mum has received here has been second to none. Your immediate impression on entering the home is one of a modern, clean, bright environment that 'smells lovely'. The staff are friendly and welcoming and it's obvious they are a good team. The decor is thoughtfully created with a seasonal theme and the team constantly strive to plan new activities and interests for residents. There is even a pub on site!
