My mother was looked after by the team at Field House for three months after a fall and a long hospital stay. All involved were caring and friendly and the home itself provided a warm and homely atmosphere. When we visited (almost daily) the staff always kept us up to date with Mother's progress and were always willing to answer questions. Now back home, my mother is all the better for her stay at Field House.

My wife spent her last months at Field House. I attended her daily and sat with her at any time during the day. I was with her when she passed over and the staff of Field House could not have done more for her comfort and well being, and I cannot be more appreciative of all the help both of us received. The staff were excellent in every way and I would not hesitate to recommend Field House Harpenden to anyone.

My seriously-ill friend was only at the home for a very short while before sadly dying but he was treated with the utmost consideration and care. Even his soiled clothes had been beautifully washed out and ironed when I called round to thank them for their care. his room was clean and fresh and quiet.

This was my mother's third stay for respite care. 11 days of excellent care, companionship, activities and good food. She came home reluctantly and has now decided to go back on a permanent basis. I know she will be well looked after and very happy.

My mother was admitted for convalescence care after being treated in Spire Hospital for a urinary infection. The care she received from all members of staff without exception, was excellent. All the staff were caring, kind and patient. The manager, Mrs April Parrott-Carter, was absolutely outstanding and her humorous approach to mother speeded her recovery. We would both highly recommend Field House. The care could not be faulted.

My Mother spent the last two weeks of her life here, followed by my father who spent his final six weeks at Field House. They were both treated with warmth and compassion, and I found the staff without exception of great support to me an only daughter. My family were delighted that both my parents passed peacefully away in such a tranquil and caring environment.

My sister was a resident at Field House for the last eight months of her life. During that time she was very well cared for by capable, kind and friendly staff. She was always well groomed and her clothes well looked after. She particularly enjoyed her time with the activities organisers. Until her illness took away her appetite, she found the food delicious. I, and her other visitors were always made to feel most welcome and at home.

My mother is very comfortable and has been treated with dignity since she moved into her room at Field House Nursing Home. She has very good nursing attendants who treat her with patience and the dignity that she deserves, as although she has a long term illness she is not always aware of her health conditions and whether she has eaten enough or not.

Obviously it was an unhappy time as my husband, who retained his full mental facilities until the end, one by one losing his physical facilities. He frequently mentioned how kind the staff were; they were very friendly and supportive to me. The home is just being refurbished - I am sure the rooms will be excellent there.

My sister has been a resident at Field House for two months! I visit her several times a week and it is a pleasure to do so! Her mobility and general well being have improved greatly since she has been there. She much enjoys the excellent food and is well cared for. Above all, the staff are always most welcoming, friendly and happy to help with anything. I am able to rest assured, knowing she is in a good place.
