Review of Shire Hall Care Home on Wednesday 29 January 2014 by Chris Webb (Wife of resident)

My husband's home has been Shire Hall for the past six months. Since day 1 we have both been treated with the utmost respect and understanding. My husband's life is now full of opportunity to make new friends, continue hobbies and even try some new ones, all in a safe,encouraging environment. I still feel very guilty about not being able to look after my husband at home and the staff always find the time to cheer me up too. I truly owe so many of them so much I don't know how I would have got through this emotional time without such genuine support. Thanks to everyone of you I know my husband is in safe, caring hands and that truly makes the difference between a good home and a very special one.

Review of Shire Hall Care Home on Friday 10 January 2014 by Sian Ingle (Daughter of resident)

My father arrived at Shire Hall in the summer of 2013 and for the first time in ages my sister and I plus family were able to holiday together without any concerns for dad. We were recommended this care home by the manager of a one-to-one care agency from whom dad received 24/7 care. When the time came to transfer to a Residential Care Home my sister and I were most discerning as to what we expected and I can promise you - we were not disappointed. My father was able to bring his double bed and most of his furniture including his own arm chair. The wonderful handyman, Steve, put up all dad's pictures and family photographs and we were helped with labelling dad's clothes (which I had not even thought of!). The mixture between efficiency and support and caring is superlative. All appropriate paperwork that needed to be filled in and information that the Home required was discussed in a calm and measured way over a cup of tea and with very little stress. I have two children and deciding upon a nursery for my son 18 years ago and choosing a place for my dad last year - I followed the same "gut feeling" which I have always relied upon and which has never let me down. From the moment I entered Shire Hall I was welcomed by the wonderfully friendly and informative office administrator, Lyn, sitting on reception – and seeing the domestic workers about the place with an efficient and friendly demeanour - I just KNEW that this would be the right place for dad before I had ventured further than the reception area! My sister and I are very demanding in what we expect of a care home for dad as our father has been such a good and caring man all his life until he had a heart attack and then was struck down with Alzheimer's shortly after. The staff at Shire Hall is well trained in this type of specialist care. My sister and I both live in London, so although we are not involved in the minutiae of day to day care we are - nonetheless - informed about meetings that the psychiatric team, GP or memory clinic team have had regarding dad and brought up to date in a timely manner. I cannot recommend this care home enough. It goes without saying that the place is spotless and that the carers are well trained, but it is the kindness and respect of the staff whether carers or domestic staff (cleaners, laundry staff, handymen) that most impresses me. In my profession as a midwife I am used to caring for people but as I tell my students, kindness and compassion cannot be taught. Our father is treated with dignity and with kindness and endless patience. Thank you Shire Hall and Hallmark for providing such an excellent and worthwhile service.

My partner same to Shire Hall after a stroke, it was decided that he needed to be here as the care that they provide for him I could never supply at home, this has proved to be so true. The home has given my partner top quality care looking after all his needs. We have become so grateful and we treat the home as our home, I say our home because they show me the same care. Thanks all.

Review of Shire Hall Care Home on Wednesday 11 December 2013 by Rosemarie Saintclaire (Daughter of past resident)

Hello, I am so glad you are reading this. I know first hand how hard and very emotional it is when your loved one needs to go into a care home. You realise due to their age / illness so much more care and attention is now needed, and you are unable to provide this for them. You do not have to worry... My mother Louisa spent her last months in Shire Hall, and was 86 when she passed away. Mum was suffering from both lung cancer and dementia, the dementia was the bigger problem, often leaving mum confused. I spent lots of time with my mum on a daily basis, and would be offered refreshments through my stay. I was able to see how well every one is cared for, every single question directed from a resident to a carer is responded to, nothing seems to be any trouble at all. Some residents need a little TLC and this is available even during busy times. Respect for the residents is so even, and the understanding and patience needed for dementia sufferers. The staff are happy and upbeat, and really do enjoy their work. The rooms at Shire Hall are all beautifully decorated and furnished, but it doesn't stop there. My mum had her own ideas on how her room should look, within days the management redecorated her room in her favourite colour! And we were encouraged to bring any of mum's possessions into her room. I brought her TV, nest of coffee tables, curtains, scatter cushions, personal quilt and bedding, pictures, paintings, table lamp, and a huge Indian rug. Suddenly her room looked just like her own living room back home. It was perfect for her, and gave mum the continuity so important to dementia sufferers. All the staff at Shire Hall are the best you could wish for.......

My mother has been in Shire Hall since August. She suffers from dementia. During the last months in Shire Hall she has become more settled and contented. The staff are very caring and as family we feel always welcomed. The facilities are excellent and everyone is happy with a smile on their faces. I would recommend this care home to anyone. It is an excellent example of how things should be done.

Review of Shire Hall Care Home on Wednesday 23 October 2013 by Rosemarie Saintclaire (Daughter of resident)

My 85 year old mum came to Shire Hall for a week's "holiday". But within a couple of days she had decided to stay! For the first time in many years my mum was now stress free, no worries about her health, the cooking, cleaning, washing or ironing any more. The wonderful staff are always available to help in any way, and will also find time to socialise with her. Comfort and care is the priority of all the staff. Due to my mum's failing health, I spend many hours at Shire Hall. I have been moved many times by what I have witnessed, the interaction between the staff and residents can take your breath away. Taking care of the elderly needs a lot of patients and love, both of these qualities can be found in abundance at Shire Hall. Each member of staff is known by their first name and that includes the Manager ! There is something in Shire Hall that money can not buy, come and see for yourself...

This is an excellent care home which I wholeheartedly recommend. My mother has been on an EMI floor and is now on a nursing floor. The staff have been very good on both and activities are arranged to encompass all floors. There is a small cinema, a small hair salon and concerts are held regularly. My brother and I are very pleased that Mum is living in such an excellent place.

I count my blessings that I discovered Shire Hall Care Home when my mother developed alzheimers and could no longer look after herself. In Shire Hall, every day is Hug Day. The staff are so caring that my mother is always smiling. Sonia is so full of energy and compassion. She amazed me by signing karaoke and dancing for two hours She touched the resident's faces or arms to involve them and sang to each one. Jeanie encouraged the residents to do simple exercises and told them jokes. My mother no longer understands any of the jokes but when others start to laugh, she joins in and is so happy at the end of a session.

Review of Shire Hall Care Home on Wednesday 19 June 2013 by Lynda R (Daughter of Resident)

Dad's health suddenly deteriorated a week before I was due to go on holiday. Shire Hall agreed respite care for 10 days with only 24hrs notice. As soon as I walked into Shire Hall I was amazed by its welcome, with all the staff and managers that greeted me and dad and how clean and homely everything felt. Dad's room was superb it was like I was leaving him in a 5* hotel. It was Dad's first time in respite and he never asked to come home once. I asked him as we were leaving if he'd been looked after and he said "extensively."

The resident I visit in Shire Hall has settled in well, having had to come to terms with giving up her home very suddenly after a minor stroke. Before that, she had cooked, cleaned, gardened, shopped and I'm sure the care and company of the staff at Shire Hall has helped very much in this painful transition.

My father has been at Shire Hall for temporary respite and from the moment we first visited the care home we have been impressed with the standards of care, and everything involved. I cannot think of anything negative to say. We will have no hesitations in recommending Shire Hall to others.

Review of Shire Hall Care Home on Thursday 25 April 2013 by Sharon E (Daughter of resident)

I am a regular at Shire Hall care home and every time I visit I am made to feel very welcome. The staff are all pleasant,they help and care so much for all the residents. My mother is constantly singing, which to me means she is very happy and that in turn makes me very happy. I also think that being able to have lunch with her is a wonderful idea. Shire Hall in one big happy family and I will be sad the day my mother has to leave.

Review of Shire Hall Care Home on Wednesday 17 April 2013 by Patricia Thomas (Father was a resident)

My father was a resident at this home for almost a year. Having finally come to realise that a residential home was necessary for my father, it was the most difficult decision my mother and close family ever had to make. Having heard such horror stories both In the press and by word of mouth, we were extremely concerned about what the future would hold for my dad as he had dementia. However, having visited the home with my dad it was obvious from our first visit that the calmness and friendly welcoming we received was to live up to our expectations and more. As a family, especially my mum, we never had a moment's concern during the year he was there. He was looked after just as my mum would have looked after him at home. No one could expect more from a care home. All his needs were met from the time he woke in the morning till the time he went to bed. He was made to feel at home and all the staff gave him the utmost care and attention at all times even though because of his condition, he could be quite difficult at times. I have no hesitation in recommending this home to anyone considering a place for their loved one. I only hope that when my time comes I will be fortunate enough to find one just like this.
