My father suffered from dementia during the last part of his life. My mother found this somehow shameful and through her insistence that he be sent back to his home after frequent visits to hospital, he suffered indignities and pain that were totally unnecessary. Once he was admitted to the Meadows his condition improved, he put on weight and he began to smile. His care at the Meadows was consistently kind, gentle and heartfelt. The care extended to my mother, and she also felt welcome and special when visiting my father at the Meadows. The tears when he died and at his funeral was genuine and testament to the personal cares that he was given. I have no hesitation in recommending the Meadows, the staff and nursing care, they were all brilliant.
