Review of Brunel House

My father has received excellent care and support since moving to Brunel in April. Nothing is too much for the staff, they are competent, friendly, kind and reassuring. They go out of their way to ensure my fathers needs are met. Making a decision to place a family member in residential care is an emotional and stressful time for all concerned; staff supported all of us through the process. I thoroughly recommend Brunel House, if the decision has to be made this the place to be.

Review of Brunel House

My mother stayed for 3 weeks of respite care following & fall & concussion. Unable to manage at home & needing 24 how attention. Staff of all professions were professions were extremely professional but friendly and caring. Nothing was ever too much trouble. All staff appeared to join in together in the care pathway (through maintained clean roles) which made the care process seamless. Standards very high. Provided what was needed for my mother, not what suited the setting.

Review of Brunel House

I would recommend this nursing home, simply for the love, care and attention they give to my mother during her short stay there. The food was always good and nourishing. She was always treated with respect and dignity for which I was truly grateful. My family were always made to feel welcomed. The decor is very tasteful and made to look more like a hotel than a nursing home is 10/10 lovely!

Review of Brunel House

My father moved to Brunel House from another care home. Brunel has many advantages. Spacious rooms, flexible care, friendly staff and available staff. My father does not need nursing and we are not charged for nursing he does not receive and he is free to as much or as little he wishes. The staff are friendly, helpful and accommodating if he is late or absent for meals occasionally. The rooms and communal areas are spacious and the gardens well cared for.

I am delighted by my choice of this care home. My father came straight from hospital, a warm welcome greeted him and continued supported nursing care with attention to detail and care that I would give to my father. This is a very special home with all the team working together and added to the fact my father has improved with his overall health, this shows his confidence with the team and not only the family.

My grandad when he came into the home was close to being extremely ill. Through the expert care and extreme kindness shown by the staff, he has got so much better. He is now able to walk around the village with us in his wheelchair. I am so impressed, they recognise his needs are more than other patients and I look forward to visiting every time. The activities are always enjoyable.

Review of Brunel House

We looked at about 10 residential homes for our father. Brunel House stood "head and shoulders!" above all the rest. The atmosphere was calm, warm, caring. Our father only lived there 6 weeks before his death but we can never thank the staff (all staff including handyman, chef, carers, manager) enough for their loving care of him. They saw him as a unique individual, showed him great respect and lovely good humor.

Review of Brunel House

The management and staff at Brunel House, clearly, are passionate about the service that they provide. They always have time for all the residents and also keep relatives very well informed about the detail of the residents' care and needs. The facility is a purpose built care home, is first class, and the details in comfort and facilities have clearly been thought through. I would have no hesitation in recommending the home; my yardstick is 'would I like to live there' - the answer, of course, is yes.
