"This was our 96 year old dad's 1st experience of respite - so we visited many care homes to get it right 1st time - and we most certainly did. Initially, we were struck with the views and old-world atmosphere; so we knew dad would settle, opposed to the modern clinical feel of many others.
Immediately we saw how well the staff interact with both the residents and each other. This was much to our surprise, as dad was reluctant to leave his bungalow whilst a new bathroom was fitted,
He absolutely loved his 4 week stay and was sad to say goodbye. He is used to continual company at home and thus enjoyed meeting new friends and participating in the different activities and eating home cooking.
The staff were amazing, tailoring to his specific needs and encouraged him with kindness and humour, even though he is a very strong character and independent. He quickly viewed them as good friends.
He lost one arm in the war and for the last 6 years has progressively suffered from Alzheimers.
We have no qualms now about any future visits and highly recommend Moreton Hill."
