My experience of Brendoncare Knightwood by Marianne Church

“My Uncle and Auntie moved into one of the apartments at Brendoncare Knightwood when my Uncle was still very active but my Auntie had had a few mini strokes. This was about six years ago.

Everyone was very complimentary about Brendoncare, but I didn’t really have much experience until this February, when my cousin’s terminal illness took a sharp downward turn.

He chose to rent an apartment at Brendoncare, for end of life care. He had built up a rapport with staff and felt that he would get excellent care as well as the comfort of being near to his parents in his last days.

I spent most of his last ten days at Brendoncare and I have to say I can’t tell you how grateful I am that my Uncle and Auntie chose this place, as it’s truly amazing.

To be allowed to discharge from hospital to Brendoncare, a nurse had to visit to check out the facilities and services. The nurse was very impressed. The set up is exemplary, the Community Care Team, with district nurses and physiotherapists, is located within the Brendoncare premises.

The staff at Brendoncare, do exactly that, they truly CARE about their residents and families.

The care that my cousin and his parents received was genuine, professional, conscientious, respectful, caring and compassionate. I just cannot find enough adjectives to describe the place!

The care and attention to my Uncle and Auntie after my cousin passed away has been amazing and I even got a call to check up on how I am!

Their Covid-19 management and protocols have been high, considerate and respectful.

I also have to tell you that their food is amazing!

Brendoncare = piece of mind and happiness to families of residents.”
