Review of Hawkhurst Care Centre

Care of residents with dementia is specialised. I feel that our mother has the best quality of care that is possible given her condition. When she came to stay, please be aware that over 9 years she has deteriorated. I go back to the day that mum arrived, Sandra said 'this is your mum's home now and its yours also'. Mum is treated like one of the family.

Review of Hawkhurst Care Centre

My wife and I are regular visitors of my mother-in-law who is resident in Hawkhurst. We visit on different days and at different times but no matter when we call we are always welcomed by friendly staff. Mum is always spotlessly turned out, her room is always clean and tidy, twice monthly she has her hair done and once a month she has a visit from a chiropodist. The common areas (lounge, dining room etc.) are always spotless, they are light and airy. The general feel of the home is like that of a small family run hotel. The management and staff are extremely accommodating, nothing is too much trouble, they keep us updated on every aspect of Mum's care and health. Mum has been ill lately and they have constantly called us with updates on her condition. There are always plenty of staff on hand to supervise the residents. When it became evident that Mum needed residential care, we visited several local care facilities before deciding on Hawkhurst, we have had no regrets as to our choice, and would have no hesitation in recommending it to anyone who is concerned about their loved ones well being.
