My mum joined the care home in January. Since moving in, she has settled in well. The staff are friendly and very supportive of her and acknowledge her needs. Her room is lovely and spacious and she particularly likes it as she can entertain visitors regularly. In February there was a Covid outbreak, so there weren't many activities taking place wh… ich was disappointing but understandable. The food is excellent with plenty of choice. Mum really enjoys meal times!

The manager and the team can't do enough for Mum. The care and compassion for the residents is second to none. The home is well decorated, the rooms are very comfortable and large as well as being spotlessly clean. I can't recommend Thomas Henshaw Court Care Home highly enough.

I find the staff at Thomas Henshaw Court Care Home to be friendly and helpful and work to ensure the safety of my mum, when things do go off plan, I found they do what they can to correct it. The main plus is knowing she has assistance on hand if required 24/7.

I think the standard has gone down over the last years at the home. I realise staffing is a problem.

My sister and I are delighted with the care that Thomas Henshaw Court staff have given to our mother since she joined them two months ago. She has plenty of support and mental stimulation, with easy access to a lovely lounge and pretty garden. The care home is clean, the food is excellent and, above all, all the staff are friendly, helpful and effi… cient. She described Thomas Henshaw Court as smashing!
