I came to visit my sister yesterday for the first time and was so impressed by your care home. If every elderly person in the country could be in a home like yours wouldn't it be wonderful. Such nice rooms and such lovely staff.

Deborah, Services Manager at Kenbrook responded to this review on 06 Aug 2015:

Dear Brenda, Thank you for taking the time to complete this review and the wonderful compliments contained therein. I agree that Kenbrook is a truly wonderful service and it is hard to think of it as a Nursing Home when you see the wonderful work and dedication that goes on there isn't it? It is one of the most person centred Nursing Homes and teams I have ever had the pleasure to work with and the Manager and her whole team work together to make this home as homely as can be. Once again, thank you for your comments and we will relay these to the Kenbrook team. Regards Deborah Langton Regional Services Manager

Kenbrook

Kenbrook is an excellent home with a strong manager and stable staffing. Staff make good personal relationships with residents and treat them as individuals. They also form positive relationships with visiting relatives. I have known Kenbrook since 2009 as both my parents have lived here, and I would recommend it to anyone seeking a care home for a relative.

My father has been a resident at Kenbrook for two years, and previously my mother was a resident for about three years before her death. Both have been very well cared for. Kenbrook is a model for modern residential care.

Kenbrook cared for my late Father from February to July 2014. I cannot thank Kenbrook's dedicated staff enough for their care and support. My Father was terminally ill and they not only cared for him, they also supported me. Finding good care for an elderly person is not always easy but Kenbrook provides this and much more.

We have been very impressed by the care received at Kenbrook. My friend is very frail and has increasing dementia, so she is much in need of care now. all the staff have been super and her care is excellent in every way. The encouragement of the sister and carers have been much appreciated and the chaplain's support to regular services have been great too. We are so thankful to God that we found this wonderful home for our friend. As she is very musical, the support and kindness of the music therapist has been much appreciated as well. Praise the lord for all aspects of this house.

Mum was extremely unwell, and she was only at Kenbrook for less than 6 months until she sadly passed away. During her short stay at there, all the staff looked after mum so tenderly and affectionately, with dignity and respect, and did absolutely everything they could for her. And not only did they support mum in every way they could (and mum wasn't always the easiest of people to look after!), they also supported me and my husband too, and we really needed that and so appreciated it!! They were just brilliant and we cannot thank them enough. Kenbrook is not just a nursing home, they are a caring family who support and care for the relatives as much as the residents. On a general note, Kenbrook is a lovely place, the rooms are really nice, all with their own huge, fully equipped, private wet room. There are several lounges and quiet areas to sit, the private gardens are just lovely, and the whole place was always, without exception, absolutely spotless, clean and lovely and fresh (and that is not always easy to achieve, let alone consistently maintain such a high standard in these sort of places!!!!). Kenbrook have lots of activities but sadly my mum was not well enough to participate, but she loved the animals that used to come (Therapaws).

Kenbrook is a clean, friendly care home. The care/support my mother receives is excellent. She is treated with dignity by all the staff. The facilities and entertainment provided by Mary are second to non, her activities bond well with both residents and family. My family enjoy attending functions.Food for residents is of a very high standard. I do feel it is a safely/secure run unit. It is very good value for money. Well done all the staff, especially Marion who runs the unit, she engages well with her staff and relatives.

We visited a number of homes in the area. We had no appointments at Kenbrook and just turned up. They showed us around and had nothing to hide. Some of the others knew we were coming and were still disorganised! We decided on Kenbrook for my nan and feel she is very safe there. The home is clean, the staff good and there's a good variety of things going on. Lots of nice personal touches.

My mother spent 9 months at Kenbrook. She was often a very difficult patient, since she had dementia, and could be very aggressive. However the staff at Kenbrook were very caring, getting to know her individually and treating her with great respect. They worked with my sister and me as well, letting us know about mum whenever necessary and also helping us cope with this very difficult time in our lives. Their care was consistent, the staff turnover being low and all the staff worked as a team from manager to chaplain to administrator staff.

My father was a resident at kenbrook for 5 years and during that time he was cared for with consideration and patience. He enjoyed the company of the staff who cared for him. They showed great patience and respect for a difficult person at times.

I couldn´t have hoped for a better place for Mum to spend her last few days. All of the staff bar none went beyond the call of duty in every respect. The patience, care and attention they showed her and our family was absolutely outstanding. Thanks to all the angels at Kenbrook for making Mum´s stay as comfortable as possible.

I can`t believe that there is any nursing home in the area that could provide the care and attention that was given to my wife during her stay at Kenbrook. The staff, without exception, treated her as if she were "royalty" and I would give them all 11 out of 10 for their hard work and dedication.

Nothing but praise for the helpfulness and friendliness of the staff to my resident and all his visitors - including myself. His room is always spotless and he is clean and clean-shaven. The home never knows when I will be visiting so this is certainly not a set-up for me. Unfortunately he is unable and, to some extent, unwilling to use the many facilities in the home but much care has been taken to make all the residents comfortable.
