Barchester home 'provides dignity for every single resident'

Barchester home 'provides dignity for every single resident'
23rd September 2008

A Barchester care home has been praised for providing every single one of its residents with dignity.

Barchester St Thomas' in Basingstoke has a "homely atmosphere" and the "sheer merriment" of staff is a "revelation", according to Bel Mooney, writing for the Daily Mail.

The journalist stated she was impressed by, among other things, the food offered at the home, its gardens and the levels of personalised care given to residents.

Ms Mooney continued: "I've been privileged to spend a day at a place where ... lives are cherished and I left feeling that my life had been enlarged by the experience."

She added: "None of us should be satisfied until that standard of care is universal."

Conveniently located near the town centre in its own landscaped gardens, St Thomas' care home provides specialist facilities for people living with dementia.

The attractive Victorian building has been sympathetically converted to provide a pleasant environment for residents, staff and visitors.
