What our families say on

"Considering Mum didn't want to go, she enjoyed her stay with you, the experience was much more pleasurable than Mum had thought and she learned a lot. If Mum had to go to a home again we would definitely choose The Spires. Thank you, everyone."

Elizabeth S rating: 4.42 out of 5

"Thank you from all of our family to everyone at the Spires for the care, respect and support you gave to Mom during her 16-month stay. We are especially grateful Mom did not have to spend her final days in hospital. The staff were very caring, friendly, compassionate and helpful nothing was too much trouble."

Deborah G rating: 4.83 out of 5

"Wonderful caring, friendly staff. My mother stayed a week here for respite care. She was encouraged to take part in the great stimulating activities available to residents. The food was very good. The home is extremely clean and the decor is more like a boutique hotel. The manager is also always available if you need to speak to her. A faultless home for respite care."

T D rating: 5.00 out of 5

"Reassuring and confident care for a reluctant relative. Professional team with lots of patience. Lovely surroundings with subtle decor. From home assessment to admission I felt very reassured. The manager is outstanding in her approach. All supporting staff from nursing to reception were very friendly and helpful."

Carole P rating: 4.17 out of 5

"My Mother had a lovely, spacious room upstairs which overlooked the well-kept garden. The staff are caring and encouraging creating a calm, friendly environment. The quality of the food was very good and freshly baked goodies were available every day for both residents and guests. We always got a friendly welcome whenever we visited. I would highly recommend The Spires to anyone looking for care for a loved one."

Theresa P rating: 5.00 out of 5

"I found my experience of staying in The Spires Care Home very enjoyable. All the staff were pleasant and very helpful, the impression I was given was that nothing was too much trouble. The only concern I have is there does not seem to be medical help available for some health problems, not major health problems but little ones. Altogether the experience of living in the care home was very good."

J S rating: 4.67 out of 5

"I am writing on behalf of my mother. She never wanted to be in a care home and initially it was for respite care. A year on, and she is happy, looks well, feels safe and enjoys her time in The Spires. She feels the staff work very hard and are very supportive. So thank you for making a very difficult decision and time easy and absolutely the right decision."

Pamela G rating: 4.58 out of 5

"A lovely place. The staff were all very kind and helpful. I shall certainly recommend it for respite care. Not at The Spires Care Home long, so can't comment on the various organised activities but they looked good on the notice board. It was a very lovely place where people were well looked after."

J C rating: 4.82 out of 5

"We would as a family like to say a big thank you for all everyone did for mum during the whole of her stay at The Spires and especially during her final days and when she passed. The respect, care and feelings shown to her and her family were second to none and it made her passing something special and calm. Nothing was too much trouble. They gave their all."

Denise H rating: 5.00 out of 5

"I'll be honest, having looked after my mother myself for 5 and a half years I was both anxious and experiencing huge guilt when we went to look at The Spires as a possible 'new home' for my mother. From our very first visit, we knew this was going to be the place for Mum. Late-stage vascular dementia is not an easy condition to care for and the team on The Spires Memory Lane gives each and every one of their residents' respect, care, and attention and it's no exaggeration to say, love. Mum was only with them for a few months before she passed away, but she was always clean, comfortable, calm and felt secure, right to the end. We knew Mum was extremely distressed by her admissions to hospital and The Spires totally supported our desire for her to be cared for by them wherever it was possible, including her end-of-life care. As their manager told us "this is her home"."

S B rating: 5.00 out of 5

"My father stayed at Barchester for respite care, and the staff were absolutely marvellous. Lovely building and surroundings, light and airy rooms. Lots of activities to do if you want and lovely, friendly staff. We will definitely return again, hopefully."

Jane B rating: 5.00 out of 5

"Our daughter was getting married on this day, so to make Mom part of the ceremony, they did her hair, found a hair decoration for her and Zoomed the service for her, which she enjoyed with a glass of sparkling apple juice. This made such an impression on her that she was able to say "I was there" when I showed her the photos of the wedding! Thank you to everyone."

Denise H rating: 5.00 out of 5

"The Spires is an absolutely wonderful care home. My father-in-law has settled in really well, and everyone is so kind and friendly. His room is bright and airy, and he says he’s never slept so well; the bed is so comfortable."

A G rating: 5 out of 5

"My father went to The Spires for respite after a short time in hospital; he was, unfortunately, unable to return home and has now become a full-time resident. Managers have been so helpful with the transition to full-time care; nothing was too much trouble. He has settled in well. The staff are amazing, very attentive, caring and respectful to my father. He thinks the food is excellent and always says he is very comfortable there."

G C rating: 4.33 out of 5

"The manager was very helpful in my initial contact, and when she came to visit my father before his respite stay, she put him at his ease and happily answered all questions. When Dad was first shown to his room, all the staff were very helpful and friendly and showed him where everything was. He enjoyed his respite stay and said it felt like a holiday, especially the food in the restaurant."

S H rating: 4.33 out of 5

"Dad was admitted to The Spires with late-stage dementia. He was treated with respect and kindness, and during visits, I always felt welcomed and listened to. When Dad passed away, the staff were incredibly supportive and helped me through a very difficult time. A huge thank you to The Spires."

Libby C rating: 5 out of 5

"Both my mother-in-law and father-in-law have resided at The Spires, my mother-in-law until she passed away and my father-in-law until he needed to go to a nursing home. They have both loved living at The Spires, the building and facilities are beautiful and the care and staff have been wonderful. They treated both with dignity and love and genuine care. The manager has gone out of her way to help us the family well above and beyond. Don't send your loved ones anywhere else, this is the best place."

J W rating: 5 out of 5

"Individual care by staff is excellent and cheerful. However, liaison between shifts seems uncertain, needs addressed by staff on duty not continued subsequently."

A W rating: 4.83 out of 5

"I was in this home on respite for ten days in December 2021. The staff and care are exemplary, as is the food! I felt welcomed and looked after. I should have no hesitation in choosing this home if I ever need one. I rate The Spires 4.9/5 and want to thank them for their care."

Barbi L rating: 5 out of 5

"My mother-in-law has just returned from another lovely respite stay - I can't recommend The Spires enough. The staff are always warm and welcoming and they put us at ease straight away. The ensuite rooms are of a high standard and the lounges feel very homely and comfortable. My mother-in-law has dementia and enjoys music, craft and puzzles, so the daily programme of activities is great for her and she has plenty of things that she can join in with."

Julie B rating: 5 out of 5

"I have recently had dealings with The Spires at Lichfield. The lady I act with Power of Attorney for, needed much more care than she could get in her own home. After an inspection visit to this home, and after hearing other good verbal comments, we quickly decided to take advantage of the trial (respite) offer. She almost immediately decided that this was the place for her. All further arrangements have been facilitated very easily with help from the very approachable management team. I have had many questions and need for guidance, which have all been dealt with in a friendly and efficient manner. Thank you to the staff. After my visit yesterday with her, she was over a month into her stay, she confirmed that to move here was a decision she wished she had made earlier and had glowing reports of all staff members. I know that being there will be excellent for her and make my role much easier."

Garry C rating: 4.58 out of 5

"Our mum was a resident at the Spires Care Home for the last three years. The Home provided the best quality of life that we could have hoped for. Mum laughed, danced, sang and made numerous friends, she may not have remembered names but she enjoyed the company of her extended family and felt safe. Mum was a troubled soul at times but the staff became familiar with the extent of her dementia and responded lovingly and appropriately to her needs even with cups of tea at midnight. The whole staff made us feel welcome and involved indeed a part of the Spires family. We will forever appreciate their role in mum’s last few years."

Lesley W rating: 5 out of 5

"My mom was a resident at The Spires for 5-months and my father for 20-months ending in September 2021. They had a range of needs in addition to their slowing down that came with age. They were made very welcome from day one and made to feel like part of a big family. Their needs were met with good professionalism, but above and beyond this was the friendly and kind-hearted nature of the staff. As their health deteriorated, every effort was made to meet their needs, and without the care and understanding of the staff, I do not know how we could have managed these last few months. It was clear that the staff really took the residents to heart. Sadly, due to the needs of other family and friends, we have experienced a number of Care homes in recent years, and I can honestly say this is the best home we have experienced. Thank you."

Neil B rating: 4.92 out of 5

"My husband spent a week in Respite. The care was excellent as usual this being his fifth visit over the last few years. We are so grateful to all the staff for making him feel so welcome and content. The room was absolutely perfect somewhere he could relax and enjoy the views from the patio doors. Even sitting out when the weather allowed. We already have another stay booked for next year."

Liz B rating: 4.92 out of 5

"The facilities, care and food are excellent, and I will attempt to be a resident if I need a care home! The staff cannot do enough for me, and I was always treated with dignity. The facilities are superb, including a spa bath, which I had. The food was amazing, cordon bleu, almost. What I am most impressed with is that I feel at home. The rooms are great too, with lots of facilities. They are all en-suite, with a toilet and shower, which can be used whenever the resident wishes. There are wonderful recreational activities, too... singing groups, scrabble clubs, and many more. There’s a cafe in the foyer where tea, coffee or juice are available freely, and it’s extremely popular with residents, who frequently congregate there. All in all, I can’t praise The Spires enough! It is well organised, well-staffed, and run for the residents. Amazing!"

Barbara L rating: 4.92 out of 5

"I can’t praise the staff at Barchester The Spires Care Home enough for the care, empathy and support they gave to my sister whilst she was in their care. My sister’s behaviours were at time difficult due to her dementia but the team were always calm, patient, understanding and treated her with dignity. The manager and the team kept us updated of any changes and supported her move when her respite ended. I would have no hesitation recommending The Spires to anyone for care and the home and gardens are also of an excellent standard."

Mike J rating: 5 out of 5

"Only came for three weeks respite. The care staff are friendly and caring. Nothing is too much trouble. The rooms are a good size, and the decor all around is lovely. My room overlooked the garden and was in full bloom, squirrels and rabbits running around first thins, a lovely setting. I can't fault the home and staff. Will recommend it to people looking for a care home."

Joan H rating: 4.67 out of 5

"The care at The Spires is some of the best care I have ever seen. Not only are the staff attentive and professional, but they are also kind and approachable. The smile on my aunty’s face when we see her is a testament to the care she receives."

Bee K rating: 4.17 out of 5

"Excellent. Looked after my mum when she came out of the hospital. Thank you for all your care."

Peter I rating: 5 out of 5

"The Spires is a beautiful, clean, modern home whose staff are wonderful. They are caring and nothing is too much trouble. Mum's room is clean, fresh and looks over the garden - ideal for someone who loved gardening! The staff encourage Mum to join in the activities and when she goes she really enjoys them."

M D rating: 4.83 out of 5

"My 94-year old mother, suffering increasingly from Alzheimer's Disease, was initially a short-notice respite resident at The Spires Care Home due to her inability to care for herself after the death of my 97-year-old father. The necessarily fast move was traumatic for her in many ways, especially with the restrictions imposed by the Covid-19 pandemic. However, from the moment of her arrival there, she was met with an extremely high level of excellent care from a skilled team of carers. In the luxurious environment of The Spires, she was treated with exceptional kindness, sensitivity and, indeed, love for which both she and I, her son, were greatly appreciative. The attentiveness to her many care needs and mental health demands was humbling and the patience of the carers was remarkable. As the only remaining family member, I was learning quickly about my mother's condition and the patience and empathy shown to me, too, at this difficult time was outstanding."

Mike J rating: 4.33 out of 5

"I cannot speak too highly of the care, love and attention all the staff have given to my mum since she has been living at The Spires Care Home. Nothing is too much trouble and I have complete peace of mind knowing that my dear mum is being looked after and is well cared for. Mum moved in last August 2020 and she is very happy. She has a wonderful room and loves looking out over the central garden area. She loves the food and says it's like living in a 5-star hotel! She says the carers are so kind and caring. Throughout the whole Covid pandemic we have been kept up to date on everything and everything has been done to keep the residents safe and well. I would thoroughly recommend The Spires to anyone who was considering their loved one needing full-time care."

Julia L rating: 5 out of 5

"We cannot praise the team at The Spirehighly enough. Even before the pandemic, they were doing a wonderful job, but they have excelled themselves over the past months. All the residents and staff have been kept safe, but more than that, they have worked to keep the atmosphere cheerful and upbeat, no easy task. It's impossible to single out any one person to be employee of the month because they are all employees of the month! They have not only been employees looking after all in their care, but this year, they have also been surrogate family to the resident who have really missed seeing their nearest and dearest. Those working at The Spires have had to juggle the concerns of their own family and friends with the safety of the residents. It is a testament to how well they have done this that they have had only one possible case over the whole period. The activities team, along with all the other members of staff, have battled to keep spirits high, so important for mental and emotional health. There is always such a great atmosphere when we arrive for a visit, in the wonderful visiting suite with Mum and lots of laughter. We really appreciate all that everyone at The Spires has achieved this past year."

A C rating: 5 out of 5

"Two weeks ago my mother became a resident at The Spires, on that day the manager was thoughtful enough to arrange a visit for us on the 29th of October when Mum's quarantine period was over. So yesterday she finally got to meet the other residents and we visited. All necessary precautions had been taken to ensure everyone's safety. The member of staff who accompanied Mum was very attentive, helpful and patient. After the visit it was wonderful to glimpse through the window and see Mum had been taken to the cafe area to join fellow residents in a game of dominoes, encouraging her to socialise and settle in her new home."

Sally S rating: 4.63 out of 5

"This is my second visit to the care home. I have been here for 21 days. The initial impression is of a smart, well furnished and well-equipped building. But it is much more than that. CARE is the word that signifies how this home operates. Staff are superb and quickly learn what a resident needs and their preferences. The food is excellent and served in a splendid dining room or your room if preferred. I would have no hesitation in returning, it would be very hard to find better."

John D rating: 4.75 out of 5

"Respite recovery from a hip operation. Very good facilities, very cooperative staff, constant checking on my welfare day and night. Meal choices very good. Quality of food and cooking exceptional. The bathroom is cleaned very thoroughly, but the carpet was not vacuumed (biscuit crumbs, etc). Wi-Fi is very good."

Cyril T rating: 4.82 out of 5

"My mom stayed at Barchester for eight days respite, it was the first time my mom has ever been in respite so I was a little apprehensive. I called her a good few times while she was in Barchester and she was so happy and told me the staff were lovely to her, and she was enjoying her stay. I would never be hesitant to let my mom stay at Barchester again because she was well looked after."

L S rating: 5 out of 5

"March 9-16 2020, 7-days respite - very impressed. June 8-21, 2 -7th July - 14-days isolation, 14-days normal. July 8th onwards, happy permanent resident in a relaxed atmosphere. All the staff work as a very efficient team. Standing in for whatever is needed. Pressing for help is always answered, even if one may wait a while. Help is spontaneously offered whenever a need is seen. The surrounding gardens are full of flowers, shrubs, trees etc, and well maintained. And all of the light downstairs rooms have access to the gardens."

B F rating: 5 out of 5

"Extremely good. Excellent rapport between me and the staff. No complaints at all."

"Enjoyed my stay very much. The staff was extremely pleasant. Nothing was too much trouble."

A N rating: 4.83 out of 5

"My Godmother, mid-80s, moved up from London to Lichfield, at short notice, so we had to select a care home rather quickly. Barchester as an organisation arranged a meeting at a local home in London (when I was visiting for a flying visit), to speed the admission process, and from day one have been top rate. The Lichfield Spires is the best care home I have ever been in - the staff are friendly and the setting is beautiful. It really doesn't feel like a care home, more like a hotel complete with communal café and cake bar. Considering the massive change in my Godmother's life in recent months, she has been brilliant. She keeps telling me what a good job I did choosing The Spires. Respite care is available if you want to just try it out for your relative. During recent weeks with the COVID-19 issues they have been brilliant, sending us updates, pictures, keeping us informed, arranging activities to keep the residents' minds active and positive, all within government guidelines."

Jackie H rating: 5 out of 5

"Staff at The Spires are going above and beyond the call of duty during this very difficult time. My mother feels cared for and among friends. Despite not being able to receive visitors, she appears quite content - I would say happy - when I telephone. I cannot speak too highly of the care she is receiving. My heartfelt thanks go to all concerned, from cleaners to nursing staff. You are stars!"

Mark T rating: 5 out of 5

"From our first visit the sound of laughter and joy was apparent throughout the home. Over the last few weeks, everyone has been incredibly supportive, not only to Mum but also to my sister and I. The circumstances most of us find ourselves in are not easy. However, knowing the care, attention, and involvement of all at The Spires have meant we are confident and comforted that Mum is excellently looked after as much as is humanly possible. Thank you."

P N rating: 5 out of 5

"I was admitted from hospital mid Summer 2019 when I was unable to stand and weight 5 stone. Since then, with good care and food, I am able to walk and join in most of the activities available. We are a happy crowd and the staff has kept us entertained during this lockdown period when of course, we miss our families and visitors. All the staff has helped us to use tablets etc to keep in touch with the outside world!"

Y B rating: 4.5 out of 5

Margaret W rating: 4.92 out of 5

B F rating: 5 out of 5

"Mum has settled into The Spires really well since moving in from her previous care home. We are both very impressed with the standard of accommodation and the level of care provided by all the staff. Everybody is very kind and genuinely cares for the residents and family members."

Carol R rating: 4.92 out of 5

"Staff were very supportive and helpful at all stages of Mum's move into The Spires and continue to be so. She has settled well due to the kindness and professionalism of all the staff."

C S rating: 4.58 out of 5

"Service to my mother and father has been of a very high standard. Always professional, yet also friendly and caring. Good food, hygiene and cleanliness throughout. The facility feels as much like a home from home as can be achieved by such a home."

N B rating: 4.92 out of 5

"This home is very comfortable and the staff are very helpful to your needs. I would have no problem in recommending this home to anyone."

G D rating: 4 out of 5

"We used the Spires to provide some professional care for my mother and as a way of assessing her overall condition. The facilities, staff and overall care provided were superb and my mother thrived in the environment provided by the staff. I would have no hesitation in recommending The Spires."

"I am really pleased with the care my mom has been given since she has arrived. She has been made really welcome and nothing is too much trouble. It has meant I can now relax in the knowledge that she is well cared for."

D H rating: 5 out of 5

"From the moment of arrival, The Spires has exceeded all my expectations. The facility as a whole is beautifully designed, luxurious and comfortable, inspiring confidence immediately. As for the staff, I cannot praise them enough. Uniformly they are pleasant, caring and very professional, dedicated to creating the very best care for all the residents."

Patricia M rating: 5 out of 5

"My three weeks stay was made very pleasant by the wonderful and caring staff, in a superb environment. Nothing was ever too much trouble."

Frank P rating: 4.83 out of 5

"My father went in on emergency respite. We had already looked at the home. He was well looked after and enjoyed his time in the home. He loved having a cooked breakfast, the company of others and enjoyed sitting with the mother and baby group. Staff seemed very nice but there was not many of them. I would put my father in here again."

Carol F rating: 3.92 out of 5

"I had a week's respite care and could not have been better looked after. The staff were all very kind and made me feel very welcome."

S M rating: 5 out of 5

"From first contact, we were made to feel welcome. Mum was nervous and frail post-operation but all the staff were very kind, caring, thoughtful and sensitive to her mood and needs. Food, care, facilities all excellent and a lovely room. Only criticism would be a shortage of staff sometimes (noticed by mum) and lack of communication between staff and occasionally between carers and mum eg no notice of early lunch at the garden party, a problem with medication as not registered with local GP, Confusion about the length of stay amongst carers."

G S rating: 4.92 out of 5

"The room and facilities, service, food and care were excellent. The carers were extremely efficient without being overbearing. I was there for a few weeks' convalescences and was very happy. Staff and residents very friendly."

B H rating: 4.92 out of 5

"My husband came for one week's respite for the first time. This was very traumatic for both myself and my husband, but the staff took over and really put my mind at ease. They telephoned me to let me know that he had settled down. I phoned every day to check that he was ok and the staff were very patient and reassured me that all was well. We will be using this service again."

A L rating: 4.25 out of 5

"We have been so impressed with the care at The Spires. The staff are so lovely, friendly, patient and kind. Nothing is too much bother. The accommodation is very good, clean, light and spacious. We are sorry that she is leaving but expect to be back. We feel that Mum is very safe in this place and treated with huge respect."

P W rating: 5 out of 5

"Following an operation, I arrived at Spires to a very warm and caring reception. All staff are 1st class with a full commitment to looking after everyone they are responsible for."

Josephine P rating: 4.92 out of 5

"Excellent all round. Staff very helpful and genuinely caring. My wife celebrated her 90th birthday with you and the arrangements were first class."

A C rating: 5 out of 5

"The staff at The Spires were brilliant. They were very helpful in settling my mum in for her stay and always called me back if I had any concerns. After mum being quite apprehensive about staying she came out saying that everyone was very friendly and the food was great. A huge relief as it's never easy leaving your mum somewhere different. Will definitely use again."

J S rating: 4.58 out of 5

"I spent 10 days in The Spires in respite care. All the staff were extremely helpful, respectful, empathetic and very hard working. Nothing was too much for them, they always had a smile. You have a brilliant team in The Spires Care Home. The only area of improvement is that a greater ration between staff and patients could help further. The furnishings and environment are lovely I would definitely recommend The Spires Care Home."

P B rating: 4.75 out of 5

"I found all the carers and staff very helpful and considerate and had a pleasant stay for a month or two and will go back there again if necessary."

Margaret H rating: 4.73 out of 5

"Complete peace of mind being cared for by a very professional team. No requests or service has been too much to ask."

Josephine P rating: 4.92 out of 5

"All staff are very kind and considerate. As a point, maybe an intercom system would be most helpful to both residents and staff. Maybe something to be considered for the future."

Frank P rating: 4.83 out of 5

"This was the first time my husband had gone for respite so I could have a break. He settled very well and although he cannot tell me many details as he has dementia, he had obviously been well cared for and happy."

V W rating: 4.8 out of 5

"Visited mother in Law today. I never cease to be impressed by the home (it really is home from home). I have visited many care homes in my work and this home is amongst the best. Clean, friendly and a lovely atmosphere. Thank you for making Mother in Law's stay here pleasant and comfortable."

Barry M rating: 4.92 out of 5

"Our experience from start to finish of the process of admitting my mother into the care home has been smooth and professional. All the staff in the home are friendly and attentive. My mother loves it there."

Rosemary P rating: 5 out of 5

"The care and attention shown by all the staff on my sister's admittance was second to none. This has continued since she has been in their care."

B T rating: 4.92 out of 5

"Both my parents have been resident in The Spires for several months and I can't praise it highly enough. The staff are caring and compassionate and take the time to get to know the residents and their families. My parents have very different needs but the ethos and facilities at The Spires has enabled them to stay together. They are safe, cared for and extremely well nourished. I can relax and be a daughter again."

Amanda H rating: 4.92 out of 5

"A very good friend of mine is currently a resident at The Spires. From the very first day she arrived, she has been treated with a great deal of care and empathy. Every member of staff I have had contact with has been professional and caring. I would definitely recommend The Spires, it's a lovely place and I hope that if ever I needed this level of care, I would be in such a place."

Helena R rating: 5 out of 5

"Respite care was needed at short notice. The staff were eager to help with our needs and to accommodate us at short notice. This desire to help and go the "extra mile" was evident in all of our dealings with the home. The facility itself is of high quality. But the real difference was the staff. All staff were wonderful, professional and caring. Thank you."

N B rating: 4.92 out of 5

"Mum has settled very well at Barchester The Spires. We were very uncertain about whether the next stage of care should be permanent but feel greatly reassured by the care mum has experienced in the last few months staff are all lovely and show great empathy with residents. Mum has made new friends and is very well looked after 24/7. We are able to enjoy her company again and it is lovely to see her happy and content."

C C rating: 4.67 out of 5

"All staff are very friendly and helpful. The room is clean and well maintained. Food is excellent and to be able to eat in your room, if needed, is comforting. Activities sound excellent but I have not had time to be involved."

Judith K rating: 5 out of 5

"My mother stayed for a weeks respite and had a lovely time. We have already booked again! The home is in a nice setting with modern facilities. The rooms and communal areas have a comfy, homely feel to them and my mother settled in straight away. The staff were kind and patient."

Roger B rating: 4.92 out of 5

"My Mum who has Alzheimer's disease stayed for one week to see what benefits The Spires could offer her. The care and support given throughout the week were outstanding and we are now considering a permanent placement. All staff were caring and professional and made my Mom feel happy and contented throughout her stay. Food and activities were excellent and I was made to feel very welcome every time I visited. Thank you."

Christine K rating: 4.92 out of 5

"My mum couldn't be in better hands, she is safe and has amazing three-course meals she has a lovely social circle. The staff are attentive, patient and nothing is too much trouble. I don't have to worry as I know my mum is in the safest of hands. It's like a big family. I can't thank The Spires enough for all they do, they really and truly are amazing. Thank you."

Kimberley M rating: 5 out of 5

"Our father, husband and brother is grateful for all your kindness and support over the past month at a time when the family needed support."

D S rating: 4.75 out of 5

"My mother came to The Spires for respite care for two weeks. I visited at various times and the residents were always content and very well cared for. The staff showed genuine dedication and always welcoming and kind. Nothing was too much trouble. The calm and peaceful atmosphere was reassuring and enabled me to leave my mother in their care without worry. When I went to fetch my mother home, she had blossomed and was so alert and content that I extended her stay. Being able to book respite care up to a year in advance is wonderful. Also knowing that my mother will enjoy herself and receive high-quality care, wonderful food, all provided in homely, comfortable surroundings is worth more than any amount of money can buy. The Spires is a perfect example of what a care home should be like and I would have no hesitation to recommend it. I hope this review helps anyone considering respite/permanent care and reassures them that there is nothing to worry about at The Spires. Thank you."

"A two-week stay at The Spires has been an excellent way for my cousin to give serious consideration to her future care needs. I am pleased she accepted this opportunity to experience 24-hour support. She is not yet ready to surrender her independence but has appreciated the benefits. The location is very good, easily accessible too."

"Mum came to The Spires initially for respite following a rather nasty water infection. She has Dementia and lived alone in Pelsall. Whilst in hospital, the Dementia was diagnosed and then everything fell into place. For her safety and well being my sister and I decided that The Spires was the place for her. She loves talking to people, singing and dancing. The Spires Care Home is brilliant. Mum refers to it as her Hotel. The decor is splendid the facilities are amazing especially the spa bath. She can often be heard singing in the bath!!! Mum loves the spa bath with coloured lights and bubbles. The staff are wonderful so caring and friendly. Nothing is too much for them. Mum thankfully has loads of visitors and everyone loves to go and see her especially with the bistro area they've got. Lovely drinks and homemade cakes and coffee - just help your self!!! I've been to a number of care homes before choosing The Spires and without a doubt, this is the Ritz of care homes."

"My mother took a little while to settle in (after all, she has looked after herself for 95 years!), but now says she is very happy - and it shows! She cannot speak highly enough of all the staff, who look after her with care and personal attention."

"From the moment we walked through the door we were made more than welcome by the receptionist. We were then shown around the building and it was like walking around a 5-star hotel. The manager came to visit our home to see my mum and her care, compassion and understanding was wonderful. Mum spent 12 days respite in The Spires whilst we were on holiday and I can honestly say from friends who visited her they all gave glowing reports regarding the staff. I cannot praise the staff more highly - very professional. I certainly would recommend The Spires to anyone - wonderful."

"I came for post-op care following spinal surgery. I needed personal care help, rest, good food and most importantly - high-level cleanliness. All my needs were met and exceeded due to top class care in a dignified manner. Would not hesitate to recommend The Spires Care Home. Grateful thanks to all."

"My mum, who has dementia, moved to The Spires from another care home. The difference in her is amazing. She's now happy; singing, dancing, eating well and generally interacting with staff and other residents. I feel I have my mum 'back'. I can't thank everyone at The Spires enough for making a difficult situation so much more manageable. The care and attention is second to none and the environment is fantastic. I would highly recommend."

"I thoroughly enjoyed my two-week break at The Spires, the accommodation was first class, as was the food. The staff were all friendly, nothing was too much trouble and every effort was made to involve everyone with what was going on. I had lots of family visit and they were all made very welcome. I will be returning."

"My family and I had to make the hardest decision we have ever had to make about placing in mum into care. This heart-wrenching decision was made easier due to the sensitive and highly trained staff. The home is beautiful it does not feel like a care home more like a 5-star hotel. The whole process from our first visit without mum to the day she moved in. This is a happy home not only because of the excellent highly trained staff making living there a fabulous environment but how it is presented. There are plenty of activities to occupy mum and keep her happy which was very important to us as mum needs stimulation and company to reassure her, particularly during those periods when family are not visiting. Staff are dedicated, highly trained and clearly love their jobs. I would recommend a visit here if anyone is contemplating care home living. Thank you to all the staff that have helped not only mum but us as a family to do one of the hardest things we have ever had to do."

"We refer to The Spires as Dad's hotel. The people that work there, the decor, the facilities, the grounds, the cleanliness and the service has been nothing less than 5*. As a family, our minds are at rest knowing Dad is being well looked after in a beautiful environment, with 5* treatment. Thank you, Barchester for making this possible!"

"To put Dad into a home was an extremely hard decision to make. However, the warm and genuine care staff have made the transition easy for both Dad and the family. Dad seems extremely happy at The Spires Care Home which speaks for its self and is the best review I can give."

"Choosing a Care home is one of the hardest and most traumatic decisions to make. My Mum (95) has been in residence at The Spires for a week so it's still very early days. That said, however, I have nothing but praise for the staff (no matter what their role). They are caring and attentive. Mum will often say how kind everyone is. They are quick to provide company if someone is on their own. Food and drinks are of a very high standard and visitors are able to enjoy complimentary refreshments from the cafe area. Our family are made most welcome - including dogs and babies! Little details have been considered such as net laundry bags & tiny tags in clothing - not a marker pen or name-tape in sight! We are looking forward to being able to spend time with Mum doing normal things that families do, now that the burden and worry of being solely responsible for an elderly frail person has gone."
