My father has been at Birkenhead Court now for 3 months. I didn’t think he would ever accept any kind of care but the staff have done everything to make it feel like his home and he loves it. From the first time we looked around and every day since we as a family have been made to feel welcome and part of his care. I feel that staff genuinely car… e about the residents and get to know them. Dad spends a lot of his time in the lovely garden and has already been on a few outings. I would highly recommend Birkenhead Court to anyone looking for residential care of a person with dementia.

I found the home to be the perfect place for my mum. She was well looked after and cared for. The staff were always courteous and friendly and professional, as were the management team. My mum was happy there. I can't thank all of them enough for how well they looked after my mum. The home was always clean and well looked after.

On the day that my mum arrived at Birkenhead Court Care Home, our family were made welcome by all the staff and management. During her time there, Mum enjoyed the vast array of daily activities, entertainment and outings. There was always something to look forward to and a very happy, loving atmosphere was felt at each visit. There was excellent co… mmunication/updates from staff to family. My mum has now passed away, my family and I will be forever grateful for the love and care from all staff.

Birkenhead Court is, in my opinion, a friendly, well-organised and caring home. Over the past two years, with all of my visits unannounced, I have always been pleased with the care and attention received by my mother. And she continues to be happy, content and settled. Long may it continue and thank you.

Since moving here full-time, Mum has been treated with dignity and respect. All staff are trained in dementia and it's so good to see the same faces every day. All staff are friendly, kind and respectful and show so much kindness and compassion to the residents, it really is refreshing. We have experienced so many carers in previous care homes, ext… ra care housing and independent living where carers were in the wrong job and others who really didn't have a clue about dementia. I feel like I now have my life back and can concentrate on my children again knowing Mum is content and happy here.

My mother came to Birkenhead Court Care Home in August 2022. She came from another care home where she'd lived there for six months. We (the family) were asked to find another home as they couldn't fulfil our mother's needs. The care that Mum received at Birkenhead Court showed through the staffs kindness and caring. She was not always easy to dea… l with, yet staff handled her feistiness with patience and calm. So I am grateful that Mum could end her days being looked after so compassionately.

When we moved Mum to Birkenhead Court, we were immediately impressed. From the manager, the office staff the handyman, to the care staff, everyone was friendly, professional and caring. Despite Mum being quite challenging at times, she was always well cared for and her needs were met with kindness and compassion. The staff were flexible and thought… ful, letting Mum have the freedom to choose what she wanted to do. They interacted so well with all the residents, putting on a wide range of appropriate activities to engage and stimulate them, from art to quizzes to reminiscing sessions. As Mum's health deteriorated, everyone at the home showed nothing but kindness to her and the family who sat with her over her final days. We were so grateful for the end-of-life support that Mum and family received from the staff, it was exemplary.
