Review of Brendoncare Alton

Mum loves the Home and we are so please we gut her in there as we didn't think we would get the funding. The home was relly very supportive in helping us and they don't take too many non provate patients. The rooms had a new carpet and was freshly decorated in a colour mum chose. The mainternance man put her TV and pictures on the wall and the home provided flowers on her arrival. The chef and activities staff came to see her and helped her settle in. The room is good but mum couldn't take everything she wanted as it's not big enough. We ate in the restaurant with mum, it was excellent and like having our own party. So releaved!

Review of Brendoncare Alton

Excellent Home and attentive staff have helped Nan settle in very well just prior to Christmas. She has so much more to do since leaving her flat and has more of a sparkle in her eye. She has made new friends and started to join in the activities programme, in group sessions which are fun and she is now getting more exercise and stimulation. She is eating better as she doesn’t have to cook for herself, which she couldn’t be bothered to do. She seems to be having fun and her outlook on life has changed. She looks better having had her hair done in the onsite salon and now packs her day by chatting, watching old films with the other ladies, can go to church service again and has started painting and doing armchair aerobics. Love the staff, thank you Brendoncare.

Review of Brendoncare Alton

We found this home via a recommendation from a friend and viewed it a few days later. Aunty B moved in during early August 2013 and we are extremely pleased with the standards of care and cleanliness of the home. The staff are outstanding. The activities staff have been superb and add a different dimension to the setting. The food has been very good and breakfast the highlight of Aunty B’s day. The nurse on Aunt’s wing is exceptional and knows so much detail about her, she puts us to shame. The activities lady has found out some things about Auntie that we had no idea about. Love the atmosphere, it’s so welcoming and friendly and the staff are always laughing.

Review of Brendoncare Alton

We looked extensively for a quality environment for my mother to feel safe and secure in, but more important to our family was the vibe that the home had. The staff are so friendly and you can hear laughter in the home during the day. The staff all seem to have fun during the day with lots of banter and they really seem to enjoy their work which makes so much difference to the atmosphere within the home. They treat the residents as people and actually care. The manager is so friendly and approachable and nothing is too much trouble for him. It’s just a lovely place.

Review of Brendoncare Alton

We were anxious to find a nursing homes for my mother who was on the isle of Wight, she was quite poorly and she needed to be transferred as far as I was concerned fast, Brendoncare was it seemed well run, light, cheerful, fresh and well maintained home we visited. The staff are kind, friendly and respectful to residents and approachable. My Mother has settled far better than we expected, which I think speaks volumes for the standard of care she receives. she has had a few extra needs which have all been met well. An added attraction is a visitors dining room where residents (and those from adjacent sheltered flats) may eat with friends and family, this is also licensed for all to use, and it is well used, the activities are daily and sometimes twice daily, they have an on site hairdresser a shop and a bookswap area, I am sure they have more than I have said, but we are still finding news things around each corner, I would recommend Brendoncare to anyone, I keep telling my husband that Brendoncare will be our next move, but as we are not yet 60 we have to wait !!

Review of Brendoncare Alton

We looked at several nursing homes for my mother but Brendoncare was, by far, the best run, lightest, most cheerful and well maintained home we visited. The staff are also kind, friendly and respectful to residents and approachable. Mother has settled far better than we expected or believed possible, which I think speaks volumes for the standard of care she receives. A special attraction is a very nice visitors dining room where residents (and those from adjacent sheltered flats) may eat with friends and family.
