What our families say on

"Since moving into Barchester Meadow Park Care Home, Mam has made the most unbelievable improvement. I cannot thank the staff enough. Six weeks ago, I thought we would lose her and here we are visiting Mam in the most comfortable and happy surroundings. She is vibrant, chatty and full of life again. Has made new friends and enjoys her chats with all the staff. Meadow Park has brought my mam to life again with their thoughtful, caring and experience. We have our lovely mam back, all thanks to the manager and all the staff. Thank you just isn't enough."

"All the staff have put so much effort into making this an amazing Christmas for all the residents. The full monthly timetable, the activities daily, the food, the fair, and the parties. It's all an amazing time. They have amazing meals with chats that let them talk about their past, learning details about each resident. I can't thank you enough for everything you have done for my mam, making her come out of her shell and truly feel comfortable."

"I would like to say a huge thank you to all the fantastic, kind, caring and dedicated staff at Meadow Park Care Home, especially those on Memory Lane. My mum had advanced Alzheimer's and a pressure area on her sacrum. This has been managed exceptionally well by the staff. I appreciate this aspect of care is very difficult, time-consuming and challenging for the staff and that my mum could have quickly deteriorated. However, due to the excellent care she receives daily, my mum is doing really well. Well done to Meadow Park and all your caring amazing team."

"My mother has been in Meadow Park Care Home for two years now. I have to say the care she gets is second to none. I feel she is safe and very well looked after. The staff are caring and always cheerful. There have been two special events recently, an Oscar day and a fifties and sixties day, great work, thank you."

David K rating: 5.00 out of 5

"My friend is quite happy here but quite lonely at times she said she feels isolated when in her room she does not like to mix or sit in the communal lounge. The staff are all very nice but always busy, she really likes the food and is complimentary about the staff"

S L rating: 3.42 out of 5

"My mother has been here since February, and the care and attention she has received have been amazing. She is one of their oldest residents, but they are helping her to join in with everything. They always keep me informed of any issues. Totally recommend Meadow Park. An excellent team and I would be happy to make a recommendation to anyone who asked me."

Jon S rating: 5 out of 5

Jane S rating: 4.5 out of 5

K P rating: 4.17 out of 5

"They have given outstanding care to my grandma over her short time there so far. They are always so caring and supportive, not just to her, but to us in our visits as well. They always put her needs first before anything else and are always running around to support her! Thank you!"

K P rating: 5 out of 5

"The person I know is extremely good at their job in the care and attention that is given to the people they care for. In my opinion, it's very hard to define one person because they all do a wonderful job. Nothing is ever too much for your staff to do. It's a pity the chef is not included because she is a great cook and the food she provides is excellent."

Jack M rating: 4.92 out of 5

"Lovely understanding staff. Always putting the needs of residents first. Full of activities and staff are always approachable. Management is very nice and makes us feel at home. All residents are cared for professionally and with love."

Hazel C rating: 5 out of 5

"I'm pleased me and my family chose this home for my mother as she looks well and healthy and well cared for staff are great and also friendly. There's plenty of activities for people to do, always pictures put on their website doing different things."

Helen D rating: 4.92 out of 5

"My mum is currently a resident at Meadow Park and she speaks very highly of the staff she has even nominated two night shift staff for how lovely they are with her. My mum is only 59 years old and making the decision for her to be in full-time care was the most heartbreaking decision to make however knowing that she is in Meadow Park make us as a family feel at ease as we know she is getting the care she needs"

Victoria D rating: 5 out of 5

"Fantastic care home, Mam was taken into care and this was a very upsetting time for us. I am very happy with the care home and the staff are great with Mam's needs. They made us feel very comfortable knowing Mam is being cared for properly, management staff are fantastic too, very happy."

Claire D rating: 4.92 out of 5

"I work in a domiciliary optician and have visited Barchester Meadow Park Care Home on countless occasions as a healthcare professional. Every time you visit it feels like the residents home, that you are visiting your grandparents in their own hose, not like a care home establishment. The staff are always professional but approachable, friendly and loving to the residents in their care, although they are always busy, they always have time for you. My mam has vascular dementia and when we could no longer care for her at home, this was the only place I felt I could trust with her care. It took a while for her to settle into the home but its lovely seeing the updates on the social media pages with all the activities they have. I could never thank the staff enough for the love and kindness they've shown my mam during lockdown. Its been a tough year but I know she's well cared for here. From the bottom of our hearts as a family, many thanks to you all."

Sharon A rating: 4.58 out of 5

"Love this care home! My mam is in here, and I can’t thank the staff enough for taking good care of my mam. It’s been a difficult time adjusting to Mam being in here, but it’s also lifted a massive stress from us, and knowing our Mam is getting well looked after is so much more easier."

Claire D rating: 5 out of 5

"The staff at Meadow Park are very professional and friendly the care home is very clean and the residents are very happy and they love all the activities that are provided for the residents are not only excellent but creative and bring all the residents together."

Theresa Y rating: 4.92 out of 5

"I would highly recommend Meadow Park as a 5-star care home. My wife was admitted into the home for a respite stay, which was a very difficult decision to make for the family. The reassurance is given from the home, care and dedication my wife received whilst staying there were outstanding! My wife has now come home and only speaks highly of the staff for there upmost person-centred care! Fantastic home, and we most definitely use it again. Thank you to all of the staff and management; we can't thank you all enough."

Thomas D rating: 5 out of 5

"My mother-in-law has just been in Meadow Park for a respite stay and she has thoroughly enjoyed her stay. She has spoken very highly of all the staff. I can’t thank them enough for the 1st class care that they provide, I would recommend this home 100%."

Deanna T rating: 5 out of 5

"My mother has been a resident of Meadow Park for the last 3 years and I have been very happy with her care. The staff are helpful and caring and always keep me informed of any problems or changes with her health. During the difficult past 12 months with covid, they have kept my mother safe and it has been lovely to be able to visit her in the visiting pod. The Facebook page has been a great addition as I regularly see pictures of my mother enjoying herself."

Karen T rating: 4.42 out of 5

"I cannot thank the whole team enough for the care my mother receives, she has lived in Meadow Park for well over a year and I cannot fault a thing. We as a family are more than happy with the care and communication we receive from the staff, and manager, and are greatly appreciative of everything they do. The Facebook page the home has is great also with daily updates and fantastic daily activities. Great job everyone, and especially in such tough times."

Diane W rating: 5 out of 5

"This is a 1st class care home. Unfortunately, my dad recently passed away here but he was extremely well cared for during his 15 months there. My dad could be very awkward when he wanted to be, but staff took it all in their stride. COVID has been extremely well managed and they have had no cases in this home. Unfortunately, due to COVID I hardly saw my dad during his last months but, obviously, this was no fault of the staff. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend Meadow Park to anyone."

Marie M rating: 4.83 out of 5

"Just to say a big thank you to the staff for the fabulous care given in this difficult time. The staff have gone beyond in every way to keep everyone safe and well. Again a big thank you to a well-run care home."

Joseph W rating: 4.33 out of 5

"I want to send a huge thank you to the staff at Meadow Park who are looking after my mam fantastically well despite the difficulties at this terrible time. My mam had her 90th birthday this week, and it was heartbreaking not to be able to spend it with her, but her carers did everything they could to make it easier for us. They are also doing a great job by helping us keep in contact via video calls. I'm extremely grateful that my mam is being so well cared for, and I can't thank them enough."

Stephanie F rating: 4.58 out of 5

"Sadly Mam passed away recently but the care given to her over the two years she resided there was second to none. The care, love, compassion she received from every single member of staff was unbelievable. They go above and beyond what is expected of them. My family were welcomed and looked after during her end of life care. Her room was well laid out, always spotlessly clean. All the meals are nutritious and homemade, amazing homemade cakes offered each day in the visitor's lounge. So pleased we found this lovely home for her with such amazing genuine staff. Thank you."

Melanie T rating: 5 out of 5

R L rating: 5 out of 5

"The service, staff and care provided to look after my parents have been wonderful. We feel as if we are family and made friends for life. Knowing my parents were in safe hands helped immensely."

S H rating: 4.42 out of 5

"All the staff are friendly and helpful. My aunt is well cared for and looked after. Most importantly, she is happy and feels safe. I would recommend Meadow Park to anyone who required the care they provide."

L G rating: 4.83 out of 5

"Welcoming home and staff with a friendly, homely atmosphere."

Peter F rating: 5 out of 5

"From the first moment I set foot in Barchester Meadow Park, I knew it was the place for mum. The general manager did her best to find a place for her and we have never looked back. The change in her is unbelievable and that is down to the fantastic job the staff do. The general manager and all of the staff should be proud of the safe and secure home they have built."

Angela A rating: 5 out of 5

"From the first day Mum came to Meadow Park, we knew this was the right place for her. All the staff were friendly, reassuring Mum would be fine and well looked after. We have seen changes over the time spent within Meadow Park with Mum and more recently a high changeover in staff which in our opinion has only enhanced the care Mum receives. There is a new enthusiasm, happiness in their work, nothing is any trouble and it is a refreshing change. Thank you, Meadow Park, on behalf of Mum and family."

H F rating: 5 out of 5

"We found this home after the home where she had resided for over 2 years couldn't meet her needs. I wish we had found it years ago. Mam has dementia and after several falls in the other home, her mobility is poor. Since moving into Meadow Park in June she has improved immensely. She is able to feed herself now, with a bit of encouragement, and after a massive weight loss at the other home has now put on weight. The leadership from Suzanne is brilliant and it shows in the quality of care Mam gets from the most caring staff. Food is fantastic. Her room is bright and airy and the home is clean and decorated to a high standard. The family feel very comfortable visiting, staff making us feel very welcome, if only all care homes could be like this."

Melanie T rating: 5 out of 5

"Everyone is extremely friendly to my father in law, looking after all of his needs. The food is very good. Visiting is easy."

Colin B rating: 4.58 out of 5

"My experience of the home is that the residents are treated with dignity and respect. My brother has been here only a short time and the staff have gone beyond their duties to settle him into his new home. He is encouraged to join in with the activities and all the staff make time for him. It is a load off the family's minds to know he is safe and looked after. I would not hesitate to recommend Meadow Park."

P T rating: 4.75 out of 5

"The care and attention given to both parents and since my mam died, to my Dad, has been wonderful. The staff have become friends and I cannot fault them. Dad is very happy here which puts our minds at rest. A care home is only as good as its staff and yours here are excellent."

Sheila H rating: 4.58 out of 5

"The staff are very caring and always happy to help and support residents and carers/relatives. When a family member has to move into a care home it can be quite daunting for them and their relatives. However, the whole experience was made easier because of the support the staff provided to all of us. All staff work hard and continue to be pleasant even when they are extremely busy."

Lynne G rating: 4.17 out of 5

"Very good care home. Staff very friendly. Good facilities. Very clean and very safe."

William Y rating: 4.58 out of 5

"Wonderful, caring staff who do their best for each resident. Usually overworked and short on staff, resulting in less time to devote to each resident. Communication could be better but we are more than happy with the care given to our mother."

L G rating: 3.83 out of 5

"As a family, we are extremely pleased with how mam is being cared for and her needs are being met. We are confident that mam is in the best care facility. When we visit we feel very welcome and staff all greet us with a smile and we have built up a special rapport. We feel the lovely staff at Meadow Park play the key role in mam's care and cannot thank them enough for their care and love."

Gillian F rating: 4.92 out of 5

"Excellent care, staff are very helpful and friendly. Rooms are kept very clean. Made to feel very welcome."

Wendy B rating: 4.42 out of 5

"The care home overall is very good. I have an issue with my mother-in-law's belongings going missing never to be seen again. Her overall care is very good and the staff treat her well I am concerned with the lack of stimulation I.e activities but I appreciate the difficulty as residents all have different levels of needs. Overall I would recommend this care home."

S K rating: 3.83 out of 5

"For more than five years my mam has resided in Meadow Park, initially for immobility, but more recently with a marked deterioration in mental capacity. Over these years the staff and home have consistently demonstrated a high level of commitment to my mam's unique personal needs. They make time to talk with her and her visitors, they make big efforts to make my mam enjoy what she can out of every day, such as putting music on and singing with her. I feel my mam has always had and continues to have the same level of respect that I get. I think this must be intentional, by the way the staff are recruited and trained. Thank you Meadow Park."

A H rating: 4.83 out of 5

"My experience of the home is that it has a friendly and caring atmosphere and that all residents are treated with dignity and respect. Individual needs are met and staff do their utmost to ensure residents are happy and settled. There are varied activities and residents are encouraged to participate. There is a good choice of meals and kitchen staff always accommodate any individual requests from residents. Laundry and cleaning services are of a high standard. I visit the home daily and have seen staff and management deal with varied situations and they always do so with compassion and professionalism. Definitely a home I would recommend."

Mel C rating: 5 out of 5

"My mother has been here since April. She has settled in lovely. All staff and residents are very friendly. It is so homely, my mother thinks she is in her own home. Staff will go above and beyond their duties to look after the resident's well being."

L G rating: 4.42 out of 5

"My husband was for many months cared for with great dignity and affection which was a great comfort for our family to know he was in safe hands."

J S rating: 4.9 out of 5

"On the whole, my opinion of the home is good but there are 2 that bug me. The laundry - it smells of urine (not sure if soiled and unsoiled washed together) and ironing terrible. I have started to take laundry away but that's not what I wanted. Activities - my mum is on memory lane but still active and feel there are not enough things going on to keep her busy. She likes to walk (I do come and take her out a few times a week but on nice days, it would be nice for her to still go outside. They could maybe allocate little jobs for her, anything to keep her busy."

Lesley S rating: 3.5 out of 5

"Initial inspection was excellent, largely due to the commitment and interaction with residents by the assistant care manager. After a successful week's respite, our parents have now become permanent residents. Our parents appear to like the homemade food and enjoy some of the activities. It appears that all staff are working hard to make them settle in."

Sheila and Jill rating: 4.33 out of 5

"I needed a short stay after a fall and my niece arranged it. My first time in a care home and I was nervous but staff did everything that could do to help me relax and feel comfortable. I had lovely showers and felt better than I have in a long time after them. The staff were busy all the time."

F J rating: 4.42 out of 5

"My aunt aged 96 needed care after a fall. It's the first time she's needed help and she enjoyed her stay giving us the confidence to use the home again if it's needed as she said she would happily return."

P M rating: 4.42 out of 5

"On visiting Meadow Park, I found the staff very friendly and helpful. My aunt has a lovely, well cared for room. The lounge is spacious for the residents and I'm always offered a cup of tea and my uncle has stayed for lunch a few times. I have also noticed they are given choices for meals which I think personally, is a good thing for the resident."

Karon R rating: 5 out of 5

"I can not speak more highly about the care afforded me during my stay at Meadow Park. Each and every member of staff are friendly and courteous. Anyone who may be looking for a care home for their family member, whether it is residential or respite, this is certainly a place I would recommend. Next best place to home."
