Bushell House

My mum came to stay at Bushells House in December 2014 after not being able to cope in her own home any more, she was sent to emergency respite care until a place could be found for her. We took her to a care home which we found to be totally unsuitable for her as most of the residents had moderate to severe dementia and mum had no one to talk to apart from the staff. We then tried 2 more care homes which again were totally unsuitable, then we contacted Bushells House and someone came to assess mum, she passed with flying colours and was in Bushells House within a few days, we haven't looked back and I no longer worry about her care.
