My partner's sister looked at a few care homes and they were nowhere near as good as Braywood. We know she made the right choice. The gardens are wonderful.

Braywood Gardens Care Home

I visit my dad three times a week. The staff have been very good in assisting me if I have ever has concerns about him. They have a review regularly so that you can be involved in the care. I appreciate the care they have downstairs as it gives me the opportunity to be with my dad away from his usual area. The activities have been excellent, they are proactive in relatives taking part. I like to take part so that dad gets involved too.

Due to the care home Salvation Army closing down as a family we chose Braywood as this on viewing we were welcomed by Richard the manager and Braywood and staff and facilities were able to provide all the care needed for our mum Lucy. Since my mum moved to Braywood who is now 95 the care by all the staff has been 2nd to none. Mum is happy comfortable and settled.

We (our family) are very pleased and happy with the care my mother who is 97 years old receives from the staff at Braywood. She is treated like they are her family. We have no cause to complain about anything. She enjoys the shows they put on and they have managed to get her to go to the activities. They keep her and her clothes clean and often do a special meal for her.

I went to visit my friends mum who had to go into a care home. I had my reservations of care homes as in the past bad press etc, but wow was I impressed with Braywood Gardens. I have made a few friends with visiting and I must say I was very impressed with the standard of this home. Both the management and the brilliant staff are very professional and caring people and good at their jobs. It has a really nice friendly atmosphere. I must stress that if I knew of anyone that had to go into a care home then I would say to them try and get into Braywood Gardens.

I would highly recommend this Care Home. Both the Management & brilliant Staff work together to provide a highly professional, kind & caring environment for my mother's needs. Residential Care is a life changing experience that has taken not only my mother but myself both time to get used to and to come to terms with, but I rest in the knowledge that she is safe and well looked after. I feel fortunate that my mother is in Braywood Gardens.

Research paid off
All of the excellent reviews are spot on. I researched and visited a number of care homes for my aunt who has dementia. After reading the reviews I visited Braywood and it just came out top. From walking into reception, which looks and smells lovely with the old fashioned sweet stall, the clean and modern bedrooms, the cafe with tea making facilities and home baked cakes, friendly helpful staff and excellent activities, I knew immediately that my aunt was in good hands. She constantly tells me how well looked after she is. Unlike some homes, Richard the manager is approachable, friendly and visible. He encourages visits at any time and for family to help at meal times(unlike some homes which are very regimented). I actually enjoy visiting!

highly recommended
My father moved into Braywood Gardens in April 2014 after spending a year in a different care home. I must say how pleased we are that we moved dad. We weren't sure if we were doing the right thing as with dementia stability is key, and wow we are so pleased we went ahead. Dad settled in well, loves the activities available and laugh's and jokes with everyone, we haven't seen dad this happy for a long time. Thank you to all the caring staff.

I didn't agree with care homes at all, but since my friend has gone into this care home I have now changed my mind. Richard the manager to Pat and all the staff have been wonderful and I mean wonderful. Nothing is too much trouble, what they said would happen has happened. Thank you so very very much, God bless.

It's bright and well laid out inside, plenty of room for my mum to roam about. Nice, good sized garden with facilities to make drinks and eat in the cafe (for relatives). Always clean and smells fresh, nice views from residents windows, residents always encouraged to take part in everyday activities. I am very happy with this home.

My Mum has been at Braywood about a year and I cannot speak highly enough of every single member of staff. They have given 100% sometimes more and have made us all feel like apart of their family. I am a SW CCO and have spent 5 years as a reviewing officer and closely with CQC, so I feel I am qualified to say how amazing this home is. I would happily be placed there myself one day.

My mother-in-law became a resident in July 2013, after finding difficulties managing her home. After a series of falls and subsequent visits/stay in hospital she eventually decided for her safety and well-being to become a resident at Braywood Gardens. Since arriving until present (10 months) she has not had any falls (she even had several falls whilst in hospital) this is credit to all the dedicated staff at Braywood.

My mother is now 99 years old and has been resident at Braywood Gardens for just over three years. She was living alone and not caring for herself - eating, personal care, etc. Since being at B. G., her health has improved considerably and she is no longer depressed. She is eating well and is always clean and comfortable. We find all the staff to be friendly, caring, and ready to discuss Mum's care at any time.

We were forced to put Mum into care as I could no longer look after her myself, as well as working and looking after my family. I was not able to look after her as well as she needed. I was worried that she would be unhappy and hate me for putting her into care. She has been there since Marsh 2013 and she is very content and happy and now we can spend precious time together instead of me trying to constantly please everyone and failing miserably.

Braywood Gardens, operated by Runwood Homes, is very well run residential home. It is clean and comfortable. The staff are caring and approachable. Rooms, residents own and lounges are well furnished and comfortable. The meals are well cooked and presented (I can vouch from having a meal). There are daily activities available in a 'common room' with additional entertainments on some days.
