"All aspects of care given to my father have surpassed my expectations. I was very nervous about handing my father over for others to care for but I am now very relieved and reassured."

"My husband stayed at Meadowbeck for four days, as I went to Leicester to attend my daughter's wedding. He suffers from Parkinsons and Dementia. He was invited previously for a one day, taster day, which he enjoyed and also prepared him for his stay. I have found all the staff extremely friendly and obliging and very efficient in their work. David was well cared for during his stay, had his tablets at the times I had asked, and all in all, he had a very satisfactory stay. I will definitely hope that he will be able to stay again in 2019 if the need arises. Thank you."

"Lovely home, all residents seem very happy and content. Staff go out of there way to help people. Very accommodating for children that visit. Management lovely. Gardens are also lovely."

"I last did a review in September '17, although my brother has been in since November 2015. I still say that the staff are exceptional and the ones I come in contact with go above and beyond the call of duty but I will say that the home is very understaffed. Some rooms have undergone a 'Wow' Factor as well as the communal areas, this has been a great improvement. There have also been little extras taking place since a new manager has been appointed, just to name a few - A birthday list of residents, take away nights and afternoon teas and hopefully, little extras for the residents will continue."

"Dad was admitted with dementia and nursing care. Downstairs modernised and beautiful, upstairs facilities good but not equal to downstairs. Established staff excellent, new staff did not particularly understand dementia so maybe more training before going on the unit, albeit all personalities lovely and caring and accommodating. More one to one care was sometimes needed, eg. more staff. Overall I would recommend this home. Felt happy leaving my father here as he was not safe at home. Many thanks, and your care was very much appreciated."

"I highly recommend this care home. The members of staff are caring, warm, professional and were excellent at keeping us informed. My mother had some specific care needs including dementia and we were delighted and comforted at how well she was looked after from arrival until her passing away. The family are so pleased we chose Barchester The Meadowbeck Care Home and on our regular visits, it was so good to witness the high-quality care."

"The care received was first class - the resident was treated with dignity, respect and good humour. The care given by each individual was above and beyond the call of duty. All visitors were welcomed and hospitality was available at all times. This care home is an excellent example of good quality care and sincere thanks to everyone."

"It is a daunting task to find a care home for your relative. All I can say is take a visit to this home and see for yourself how caring and devoted the staff are to the residents. This home has recently just had a refurbishment giving it a real modern look, but it it still has a lovely, warm, friendly feeling about it, with staff who cannot do enough to fulfil the needs of the residents and very supportive to relatives. Regarding activities, there is always plenty going on to keep the residents occupied."

"The home is very clean and well presented and all areas downstairs are clean and tidy. Staff appear to be very willing to help on occasions where there have been small issues with washing and care. As my uncle is 95 and not very technical, so staff are very willing and supportive with turning on the TV for sport channels. Activities appear to be good and uncle went out to a garden centre and appeared to enjoy his afternoon trip."

"My mum is in the dementia unit, there seems to be new staff/agency staff which I don't think is particularly helpful to dementia sufferers as they like familiarity. On a few occasions recently, mum hasn't had any drinks on her table which is a worry. I quite often have to go and fill her jug up. There is also not much social space in the dementia unit. Overall, the home is really nice and I know mum is better looked after in The Meadowbeck than at home, but I do think some staff could try harder."

"Staff very good and caring. Also willing to help when required. Room always kept clean. Events are always there for the residents."

"It was nice to be part of the gardening group and mix with the other residents and staff seeing how they mixed in together and shared help - it was very interesting. The staff were really great with the residents, so patient and caring. I've been present on other occasions and there's always plenty going on. I don't know where they get all their ideas from (everyone welcomed the tea/coffee break after the potting up had finished). My relative is upstairs on the dementia wing and the staff team are great, always so friendly and helpful - nothing is too much trouble for them. I find all the staff at the home wonderful eg clerical staff. All the staff team are stars ****."

"I can't believe how smooth the process of getting our family member into The Meadowbeck was and getting him settled. The staff have all been brilliant, so easy to approach about anything whatever time of day it is. I attended a group which was attended by my family friend and several other residents. I joined in and enjoyed it, it was nice to see how others joined in also. The staff really shone on ideas and experience within the group offering help when needed. I have since been involved and seen it all again. Keep up the good work Meadowbeck. What a nice friendly place to live, I viewed several places, and was so pleased when we were offered The Meadowbeck."

"My dad was having end of life care. The staff do an amazing job and looked after him very well in difficult circumstances. They were very welcoming to all the family, the home itself is more like a hotel than a care home."

"Lovely people, all very helpful. Nothing is too much trouble for my brother or his family. Many activities to keep all residents entertained. We are very lucky to have found this home for my brother. Meals are also to a high standard."

"I am very happy with the care and attention my mother receives at Meadowbeck. All the staff are very caring and approachable. More importantly, my mother is happy at Meadowbeck."

"Staff and management are unfailingly friendly to both service users and their visitors. Care is willingly, cheerfully, given but staff have no time to stop and engage in conversation with residents - one feels they are hard pressed to cover all that is necessary."

"The Meadowbeck Care Home in York, is in my opinion, the best there is. My father-in-law has been a permanent resident there since July this year, the very thought of him going into a care home filled me with dread that was until I visited Meadowbeck, the staff were absolutely lovely and friendly. The home is modern and extremely clean. The residents are very well looked after and cared for, I get regular updates regarding my father-in-laws well being. Apart from this he excitedly tells me when I visit all about the different activities he's taken part in which is really nice for him for example: quizzes, bingo, gardening club, arts and crafts, tv/dvd watching, coffee mornings, tombolas, days out, music club, the list is endless. So a big thank you to all the hardworking staff at Meadowbeck for everything you do and for certainly giving my father-in-law a better quality of life and making him so happy!!!"

"We were very pleased with the standard of care and concern we received at Meadowbeck. The staff were all very friendly and most helpful, as well as professional. The home itself was clean and modern with the homely, a nice place to live in."

"My wife of 89 years was admitted to Meadowbeck in January after 8 admissions to Hospital with epileptic seizures (October 16-January 17), hypothyroidism and acute kidney injury alert. since her arrival at Meadowbeck her recovery has been amazing."

"The home had excellent staffing levels with many long service staff. This has now deteriorated moving staff to upper floors leaving dementia patients with agency staff."

"Meadowbeck is a first class nursing home. Excellent staff/food/carers/nurses. Nothing is too much trouble and I have been impressed by the organisation of my Mum's care. Meadowbeck is the best home I have seen and know that everything is being done for Mum's wellbeing/comfort/quality of life. No reservations in recommending Meadowbeck."

"Meadowbeck has some lovely, friendly and helpful staff. It is clean and bright. My brother arrived in November 2015 so I am hoping that he will get to go out more on trips in the summer months. All in all a good nursing home."

"Just over three years ago my nan came to Meadowbeck Care Home close to death. Through the love care and attention from all staff, we have had three extra years with my nan which we didn't think we would have. They became my nan's and our extended family. This week my ban passed away at Meadowbeck surrounded by all the love, care and attention anyone could hope for, we as a family cannot thank the team enough for giving my nan the security and care and love she needed. All Angels xx"
