All of the staff , from managers to laundry, cooking and cleaning personel looked after my father Arthur Jones extremely well,between September and December 2015. They were well trained in dementia and cared for him with dignity and respect at a very difficult stage in his illness. He died at the home, and this avoided the stress of him having to spend his last few weeks in a strange hospital environment. Tenbury district doctors and nurses were fabulous, and had excellent working relationships with the care home staff. The home is well laid out, all on one level and extremely spacious. The outside space is wonderfully rural- ducks, birds of all kinds and even peacocks! Just the ticket, as dad'smobility was in rapid decline. I would highly recommend a visit, despite its remoteness it represents incredible value for money. Many of its services are more like that of a nursing home. I will always be grateful for their care, expertise and kindness.

My Great Auntie moved to live at Haresbrook Park following her becoming increasingly confused and her behavior changing as a result of memory loss and suspected vascular dementia, she was 89 at the time of her move. From what I saw of the Home it was dealing very well with people living with distressing and difficult illnesses. The residents were given a secure environment where they were able to express personal choice and move around freely within the secure boundaries of the Home. Initially as a family member it is difficult to come to terms with this environment but over time you realise it is a reality for the residents and that it is able the care they are receiving. The staff paid very kind and attentive care to my Auntie and when I visited each time I felt that she was well looked after and that we had done our best by placing her there, although the prospect of making that decision is a difficult one - after visiting a number of similar EMI homes we thought this was the best, I would encourage you to visit a number of places to become familiar with the environment, ask lots of questions, and decide what suits your situation. We were always given plausible answers to our questions which helped explain things we didn't at first understand. The local Doctor and District Nurses have a good relationship with the Home and family were able to phone for updates and visit. During periods of illness we were kept well informed by telephone and I am very thankful that my Auntie was able to receive the care that she did when she was at her most vulnerable.
