Barchester Badgeworth Court Care Centre

This is an excellent care home and we feel very lucky to have found it. It is well managed and has a friendly, welcoming atmosphere. The staff are extremely kind and caring, and nothing is too much trouble for them. The nurses and the care staff work well together as a team, and never seem rushed, although they work extremely hard. There are always plenty of staff on duty and the call bells are answered promptly. The home is kept clean and hygienic, and the laundry staff make sure clothing is returned spotlessly clean and ironed. The food is very good, with a varied and imaginative menu. When my father was ill, the excellent care he received meant that he recovered quickly.

All the carers, Nurses, administration staff and managers were friendly, courteous, acted with professionalism and respect to my mother in the 4 years that she was a resident in the home. They were like friends to us each time we visited and extremely kind to Mum and us in the last few days of her life, nothing was too much trouble and we will visit the home when they have any events on as we miss our little chats with the carers. The food was always of the top quality and we have eaten with them on special occasions throughout those years.

As a very frequent visitor i.e. 6 times a week, I have the opportunity to see most of the staff in their carer roll, not just with my wife but also with some of the other residents of the unit and the level of respect to everyone, whatever their personal issues is first class. Their respect and caring is also shown to me and I have never felt as though I was not welcomed. Any lifestyle or health issue that my wife has I am kept fully up to date in line with the principles agreed with the Nursing Staff, in addition the care principles are reviewed following any highlighted health issue.

The deterioration of my sister's condition ie wheelchair and bed-bound has resulted in her inability to take part in the normal activities offered, so that aspect has not been rated. In general, the staff are very compassionate and caring, leaving us with the impression that my sister is in good hands.

My father has been a resident for the past 10 years, suffering from a slowly progressive form of dementia. The overall accommodation,furnishing,facilities and food reflect the high standards my father enjoyed before entering Badgeworth Court. The care received across the period has been consistently impressive, delivered by well trained and dedicated staff. The whole establishment exhibits an air of friendly yet efficient management, and this includes the sympathetic and prompt communications the family receive when required.

Barchester Badgeworth Court Care Centre

My mum has dementia & has been resident at Badgeworth for over 3 years in first the Residential Dementia & latterly Nursing Dementia wing. I have the highest praise for staff & management for creating a safe, happy & homely environment. We came to Badgeworth at a time of crisis & I was reassured by the long experience & training of staff, their empathy & kindness. Food is excellent, furnishings pleasant & atmosphere welcoming; gardens are beautiful & well-kept. I am confident that my mum is treated with respect & sensitivity; visitors are always welcome. I have every faith in the manager, who is long-established at this home and keeps a watchful eye on everything. We first knew of this home by recommendation from a friend whose relative had been resident some years earlier, & standards have remained high since that time. Dementia is a very traumatic condition for both the person living with it and their family, & moving a relative into care is probably a last resort for many of us. It is therefore an advantage that Badgeworth offers both residential and nursing care units for those with dementia, so residents approaching end of life do not have to move out to another facility when their condition deteriorates. In my mum's case (& others I have witnessed), the transition between units was seamless. The nursing wing is well-equipped with specialist equipment (hoists etc), and staff are trained to use this safely & efficiently. There is a weekly visiting GP & chiropody & hairdressing on site. Activities staff organise a number of festive events for residents & family throughout the year, which are much appreciated. I considered several homes in the area, but this was the only one that felt right - the closest in atmosphere to our own home.
