I visit my husband often at Highfield and the home has a wonderful relaxed atmosphere. The care is outstanding, the staff are always happy, caring and obliging. I observed the deputy manager assisting a resident with her lunch with such patience and I hope if I need care I will be looked after with such respect and dignity as my husband does.

This home was suggested by my Fathers G.P as I don't live in the area. However from the first day I arrived with dad the staff were very friendly & helpful and have remained so over the period to the present day. Dad is very fussy about his food (he likes plain food) and he has always said that the food is good, the home is clean & warm. If there have ever been any problems with Dads health the staff have always phoned to keep me informed.

My mother (aged 96) came to Highfield Care Home after being in hospital for 2 months and has been shown great kindness. The staff are unfailingly cheerful and patient, creating a caring atmosphere in the home. The decor and location are very pleasant and every effort is made to include residents in activities, even if they need a little coaxing! There is good communication with family and friends.
