All the staff were patient and caring, sometimes under trying circumstances. All the staff were attentive and responsive to my mother's needs. Everyone at Henford House knew their job which indicates that selection of personnel and training are first class."

"My mother was admitted for palliative care. Her garden room is bright and cheerful, overlooking the lovely grounds. The modern ensuite facilities were essential for her comfort and dignity. My experience of her care has been excellent. She is well looked after by a friendly and attentive staff. Unable to eat very well, every effort is made to assist her to eat and the staff will cook anything that might tempt her. Her needs are quite extensive due to her illness and everything is done to make her comfortable and although not here for long, the staff have got to know her."

"I have been here a year and have found all staff extremely kind and thoughtful. If I want any help at all, I only have to ask and it's never any trouble for them. I feel I have settled in well - thanks to the staff here. Also, my children and family can relax more knowing I am comfortable and happy."

"I found Henford House care/nursing home to have very high standards in all aspects of the care of my father. The staff are very professional, and helpful but also very kind and caring to residents. There is a lovely ambience of home and family, and the residents that I have met all seem very settled and 'at home'."

"My enquiry for respite was managed quickly and efficiently - immediate wheels were put in motion to 'remove barriers' such as pre-assessment needing to take place in hospital. Any difficulties experienced were out of the nursing home's hands, such as liaising with the hospital and transport - so more to do with the NHS inefficiencies. On arrival, my mother was immediately cared for, fed and reassured. Problems with her room were also immediately rectified with care. Whilst Mum could make her own choices, she was supported to be independent. Can't thank you enough!"

"My friend entered Henford House just after her 90th birthday. From the very first, she has enjoyed living the beautiful gardens and recently the upgrading and re-decoration of the house. She enjoys some of the activities and the company of the other residents Henford House has given her great pleasure and security in the years she has lived there."

"Came to Henford House for respite care following 5 weeks in hospital and also to spend time with husband who has just moved here. If needs should mean I need care, I would come here. Couldn't fault the treatment given by all the lovely friendly staff."

"My husband has been a resident since being a patient at Salisbury Hospital from where he was discharged on 28th March. He has a chest infection and is very unsteady on his feet.

"My wife and I have a Lasting Power of Attorney for a family friend who has been in Henford House for 3 1/2 years with early onset dementia, other mental health issues, severe leg ulcers, circulatory and respiratory problems. We chose Henford as we had previous experience with my late mother in law and knew their personal and health care care to be good. Our friend is insular and a very challenging resident but the staff still manage him with a cheery smile and he admits that the care is excellent. For the first 3 years he refused to leave his room and only left it for a shower or hospital appointments/admission. However, the Activities team eventually persuaded him to take escorted trips out and this has greatly improved his view on life. We made absolutely the right call in selecting Henford for our friend."

"Henford House is the most welcoming care home. It is 100% clean- no smells often associated with care homes. 100% professional staff. 100% caring staff. More like a real home than an 'institution'. Beautifully decorated. Rooms better than some hotel rooms! Food- amazing."

"From the moment we first visited the home we were impressed with the homely, friendly environment. All the staff we met were outstanding with their hospitality and care of not only Mum but any visitors! In Mums final days nothing was too much trouble and we were grateful for their sensitive, caring work ethic."
