Review of Birch Green Care Home May 2019 by JH (Nephew of resident/service user) on carehome.co.uk


The care team looked after my uncle for a short time up to his death and we couldn't have wished for him to spend his last days in a better place.

Thank you card received March 2019 from P & Family (of resident/service user)


To all the staff, you have all been so kind and caring to Mum over the years.

There is no way I or any of my family can ever repay you for that.

For that I thank all, each and everyone

He was treated with love, dignity and compassion.

Review of Birch Green Care Home December 2018 by L (Daughter of resident/service user) on carehome.co.uk

My Dad was given excellent care. The home is friendly and welcoming, staff did everything possible to support and care for my Dad and to support his family. I was able to have peace of mind that my Dad was in no danger and was well cared for, by competent, professional, efficient, dedicated and caring staff. Our family were allowed to be with Dad 24/7. Excellent care which treated my Dad as a person rather than 'another' patient. I can't put into words the relief I felt knowing that my dad was safe and cared for.

Review of Birch Green Care Home April 2018 by AB (Daughter of resident/service user) on carehome.co.uk

My Dad was a resident here from June 2017 to his passing (March 2018). He was initially downstairs but when his dementia progressed was moved upstairs in Dec 2107. I cannot fault the care and attention he was given. We had a few hiccups along the way but a meeting was arranged and our concerns were sorted right away. All staff from nurses, carers, laundry and cleaners are so dedicated. It is a "home" for all their residents, they become their residents and an extended family and they achieve this.

I cannot fault the care and attention given to my Dad both downstairs and then upstairs. This is a care home where CARE is without a doubt given. I thank everyone. His end of life care was to be with them. They were absolutely brilliant not just with Dad but with us as a family. Also, if you are looking for a reliable trustworthy, caring home for your loved ones I say go visit them and see for yourselves.

To all staff just to say thank you for looking after my husband, you were all so kind to him what a lovely care home – God bless M & Family

My wife receives a very high degree of care and as a very discerning person I am more than satisfied and as such, there is nothing further to add. JB (carehome.co.uk review)

My husband had wonderful care in the 2 years and 10 months he resided at the home. Myself and my family were kept informed at all times of any concerns about my husband's health. We have always been happy about the care my husband, myself and family have encountered. MC (carehome.co.uk review

My husband went into Birch Green Care Home in February 2017 and the treatment was excellent from the very start. The staff are very caring and helpful and the nursing care is perfect, in fact, all the staff are very caring and helpful. The home is welcoming whenever and whatever time I went in to see my husband. I would recommend this care home to anyone. My husband passed away in the home on 26th September 2017 and was treated with great dignity. PT (carehome.co.uk review)

All the staff that work in Birch Green care home are polite and helpful and they do their work professionally. They make sure that the residents dignity is kept at all times when assisting them in and out of their chairs. They tried to make Christmas time as fun and happy as they could.

"This is to say a massive thank you to all the wonderful staff fpr the kind, loving, gentle and professional care that you gave to our Dad in his last week of his life. The attention and care you gave him was excellent, in all his aspects of care as well as your friendliness towards him and us as a family. He was only with you for one week but it was made the more special and dignified because of your wonderful staff. We cannot thank you enough for the way you treated Dad and us. The care your home provided is the best anyone could wish for." LG's Family

"To all the staff at Birch Green Care Home, we would like to express our gratitude for the outstanding care that Auntie F received, especially in the last few weeks and days of her long life. All the staff were exceptional showing care, comfort and concern for her and her family. We were always made very welcome. We stand in awe of the high quality of service given to the people in your care which we have experienced at first hand having witnessed it over many years while you looked after our Mother and Auntie."  A & C G

"To all the staff at Birch Green. Mum couldn't have wished for a friendlier 'home' and has enjoyed many happy days with you and we have been left with happy memories of the time she spent with you all". J&H

"Our mum was treated with dignity and respect, as were all the residents. As we spent more time with you when she became more poorly, we were able to witness first hand the staff and dedication all your staff gave in the performance of their duties". The family of VB

"Every member of staff the most senior to the most junior gave 110% in their part in caring for V...We never felt in the way and even through the busiest times we were never overlooked. Thank you for the way you cared for V and for us". V's Family

"Knowing that my dad had found a place where he was well looked after and cared for properly by you, and when I visited him enabled me to be his daughter again instead of his carer...In the last few weeks, I have experienced first hand how caring and supportive the staff at Birch Green are as not only have you cared for and looked after my dad, but also you have supported and looked after me. Thank you once again". C & Family

"I don’t know where to start, how to begin to thank you all for all the love & support and care you gave B and to ourselves. Thank you for her beautiful flowers on Wednesday, that was lovely of you. I’m glad some of you could make it that was nice for her, it meant a lot to me & W. I have enclosed a copy of the tribute that the vicar read out for me for you to have a read of. It was a difficult thing to put together, how can you do someone’s life justice in 5 minutes? You all do such an important job and people don’t or can’t tell you how much you are appreciated enough. On behalf of B and from the bottom of out hearts – thank you, we will never forget your kindness & love." T & W

"Thank you for taking good care of our mum, and making her time here enjoyable, we all appreciate the love and care you provided her, and we won’t forget all you did for her. We will miss you all." DM’s Family

"One year on Sunday since Enid passed away, and I am taking this opportunity of expressing my sincere gratitude for the way you made my wife’s last years as happy as possible. You were all so kind, and you will always be in my thoughts. God bless you all."  B

"Thoughtfulness is something that’s not easy to repay, but we hope these words of gratitude will go a little way. We would like to offer you out heartfelt thanks." The S Family

"My heartfelt thanks to you all, for making Christmas so enjoyable for our sister V, and the rest of the residents and Birch Green. V has told us what a lovely time she had also how the staff made the day so special for everyone, the icing on the cake appears to be the thoughtful gift everyone received from Santa Claus. May I wish each and every one of you a healthy, happy Christmas and a prosperous New Year."  EG
