I’m sorry you don’t know me but I along with my wife visited Hale Place today as we are looking for a care home for my 90yr old father with dementia.
The reason we came to you is that we have done the rounds of these massive care homes like BUPA etc. and there was always something missing !!! I couldn’t put my finger on what was missing and they all seemed a little “institutional”
Today when we arrived at Hale Place I found what was missing. Passion and care !!!!!!.
Vikki, who we had an appointment with at 1030, made us wait ten minutes. Not because she was dealing with admin or phone calls but because she was caring for residents, the unit manager was caring for residents, this I had not seen before.
No sales person but a real caring, passionate, lady who has the respect of her staff and is a joy to be with.
I loved your houses and was shown all the accommodation.
I would love to have my father stay with you as I know that he would be happy there and I would be able to sleep nights knowing that he was in such a caring and loving environment.
Thank you for giving us the chance to look at your establishment and to meet the fabulous Vikki.
Kindest regards, Paul Dickens
I am an independent visitor delivering activities to stimulate residents both mentally and physically. We meet either in the Church Hall or one of the Lounges at the home. I have always received a warm and friendly welcome from both residents and staff. Whether it is me or my bright yellow polo shirt they recognise I am not sure, but to see their smiles and waves is enough to know they are happy. I have a program set but occasionally their enthusiasm and cheekiness sends us down another path and at the end of the hour I come out having been motivated both mentally and physically by them.
