My wife has been in this care home for four and a half years and since Four Season took over, myself and my family have been very pleased with her care. All the staff rom the manager down are very caring and considerate with all the residents and relatives/visitors. The housekeeping is very good the cleanliness of the rooms, the care of clothing and the catering. I want the best care for my wife who has severe dementia and this home provides this for us both.

My mum has now been living at Brierfield House for about 3 months following a move from her own home to an almost catastrophic/disastrous admission to another local care home a couple of months earlier - and I haven't seen her as happy for a good 2/3 years! She can find nothing to suggest as an improvement and neither can I. Since being admitted, she has not needed to go to hospital and this is the longest time for many years. She is even putting on weight - which is a bit different from a woman who, prior to her admission, was all but refusing to eat and who was regularly admitted to hospital with dehydration. The staff across the board are a credit and are responsible in every respect for the fabulous and quite dramatic turn around in my mum's life.

I can't say it's a home from home or perfect, as nowhere is like your own home but they all work hard to make it the best they can for you. It's more like a hotel. The staff are nice, the home is always clean and tidy and if you want to see your loved one and they are in their own room and it needs to be cleaned, they wait until you have gone, which is good as you can spend more time with them. Your loved one is kept clean and tidy, washing is done daily for clothes and bedding when needed. From what I see when I go there I would give it nine out of ten.
