Barchester Henford House Nursing Home

My wife and I have a Lasting Power of Attorney for a family friend who has been in Henford House for 3 1/2 years with early onset dementia, other mental health issues, severe leg ulcers, circulatory and respiratory problems. We chose Henford as we had previous experience with my late mother in law and knew their personal and health care care to be good. Our friend is insular and a very challenging resident but the staff still manage him with a cheery smile and he admits that the care is excellent. For the first 3 years he refused to leave his room and only left it for a shower or hospital appointments/admission. However, the Activities team eventually persuaded him to take escorted trips out and this has greatly improved his view on life. We made absolutely the right call in selecting Henford for our friend.

My mother spent the last two years of her life at Henford House. She was very well cared for, and despite having Alzheimer's disease in a very advanced stage she was always treated with respect and died in a dignified and loving way. My main recommendation, however, is for the love and care extended to relatives - my father, now a widower, is always invited to attend open days and garden parties, and also join staff and other residents for lunch once a month - he really enjoy them . In addition, the staff were most helpful In allowing us to use a room at the home for a small family party after mum's funeral - and they provided refreshments free of charge!

I would recommend Henford House to anyone needing residential care. My husband received excelled care and support at a very vulnerable time and he has now been able to return home. I believe that the care he received assisted him in being able to come home.
