Review of Barchester The Hawthorns Care Centre on Monday 7 April 2014 by James Nicholson (Husband of resident)

I have found staff to be friendly, welcoming and caring. The ambience of Hawthorns is first rate - from coming through the door to leaving. My contact with management has shown them to be efficient and pleasant. The rooms and facilities, are excellent and even though my wife is bedridden, help is maximised. Her room is spotless and comfortable. She seems to enjoy her food - and is HAPPY!

Review of Barchester The Hawthorns Care Centre on Tuesday 10 December 2013 by doreen copeland (Care home purchaser)

My Mum was admitted here for palliative care and being a retired nurse I must admit I was very anxious about the care she would receive. I was very quickly reassured. The care she received was outstanding. The staff are caring, experienced and professional. They couldn't do enough for my Mum or us , her family. We would highly recommend this home.

Review of Barchester The Hawthorns Care Centre on Thursday 28 November 2013 by Keith Mullen (Mother was a resident there)

I recommend this Home highly & am eternally grateful to the dedicated staff in the way they attended to my Mother's nursing in her final days. The home offers the highest standards in professionalism when it comes to palliative care, offering compassion, dignity and privacy to residents and relatives alike. My thanks in particular to the two Nurses called Sharon, carers Joanne , Bronwyn, George and Aaron who were there at all times to attend to Mother's needs... Myself and two brothers are all of the same opinion in that we wished Mother had entered the Hawthorns sooner than when she was in a different care home...

Review of Barchester The Hawthorns Care Centre on Monday 14 January 2013 by Helen A (Daughter of resident)

My mother spent the last two weeks of her life at Hawthorns. During that time the staff and quality of care and dignity shown during this time made her passing so much easier to bare. I can't praise the staff enough, their compassion and understanding was exceptional. I would not hesitate to recommend Hawthorns to anyone else in a similar situation to myself and my family.
