On my frequent visits, all I observe is kindness, patience, and understanding from a wonderful collection of girls. All this allows me to relax.. in the knowledge that my mother is in very good hands.

Being new to the area I had no idea how to find a suitable care home for my mother who was waiting to be discharged from hospital in Berkshire. I obtained details of Brackenlea from Hampshire care services and phoned to visit. From the very first time I met the staff I felt confident that they were a caring team. My mother settled in very well and I have never had concerns about her care. She seems more relaxed and content. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff no matter how busy they are. How lucky I was to find Brackenlea.

After taking the difficult decision to place our mum into a care home. On medical advice, we were blessed to find Brackenlea after a difficult search. Brackenlea staff are the most professional, caring and compassionate team you could wish for. They go above and beyond the call of duty on a daily basis to ensure all residents receive the highest quality care. The home is warm, clean, bright and homely. You are always made to feel welcome. We know mum is safe and well cared for, she is happy and feels safe. She loves the staff and couldn't have settled without them.
