One of our previous resident's daughter:
I would like to thank you all there at Bancroft Gardens for the care and kindness you have shown to her. Given her state and condition when she came to you in March as to the way she is now, it is a direct result of the care and attention she has been given and it is a credit to you all.
Roger Leese from Stop! Listen, Play:
I am writing to say how much we enjoyed our visit to Bancroft in January. We were made to feel so welcome by the staff and residents and it was a pleasure to share our music with them. They contributed so much to the concert by their participation and the interest they showed in the music played. Our lasting impression was of the lovely and friendly atmosphere we encountered.
Our previous resident Jean's daughter said:
There could not have been a better place for her, small, friendly, loving and not to mention the prompt medical attention she received whenever she was feeling unwell.
Mary Stevens from Concerts in Care Homes Manager & Fundraiser:
Real privilege to visit your lovely home and our staff enjoyed meeting and playing with all the residents.
Our previous resident Elsie's Family said:
We cannot thank you enough for everything you have done for her for the last three and a half years. It was a very difficult decision for Mum to go into a Care home and we feel soo lucky to have been introduced to Bancroft.
One of our current resident Margaret said:
I enjoy the meals and the activities and decorations put up around the home. For example during Christmas we have Christmas decorations and carol singers so it feels like we are just at our own home. The staff also lets me walk around the town and also lets me decide which TV channels I want to watch.
One of our previous resident's daughter said:
I thank you for all the help you have given to my mother when she was bed bound. The staff were all helpful and kept my mother happy. She enjoyed visiting the lounge before she was bed bound as she was easily able to make friends and enjoy the TV programmes and also watching people through the windows.
One of our previous resident's son:
My sister and I are most grateful for the care and compassion you show towards Joan and a great relief to know that she is safe, warm, well fed and well cared for.
One of our current resident's Audrey said:
I enjoy the activites and foods provided at Bancroft as all meals are different and delicious. The staff treat me and my friends really well and we have different activites such as cards, quizes, singing and bowling almost everyday to keep us busy.
One of our previous resident's daughter:
Thanks to everyone at Bancroft, our mother is now looking better than she has looked for a long time and we will never forget not just the professional care that you have given to her to restore her health, but the kindness and generosity of spirit that you have shown to her.
One of our previous residents family said:
The home has been created to provide a homily feeling as there is only 16 beds and this therefore allows staff and fellow residents to have direct and close relationships with each other and this feeling helps to bring a feeling of living as a big family.
One of our current resident's son:
The home is located at the centre of Stratford Upon Avon and this helps me when I am travelling from London to visit my father, as I can easily access the home from anywhere and at any time. There is also a park and river outside the home so I can take my father for walks during the summer months.
One of the residents
I thank everyone for looking after my wife and me very carefully, Thank for making our special event such as our birthdays and wedding anniversary memorable and enjoyable and finally thanks to everyone who helped our family and friends during our difficult times.
One of our residents daughter
Thanks for looking after my mum, she thoroughly enjoyed her stay at Bancroft, she was always happy with being allowed to take a walk outside during the warmer months especially with the help of the carers.
Thank you so much for giving my dad such a lovely 90th birthday party. It was so kind and made him feel very special. Thank you for making all of the family feel so welcome. We are very fortunate to have found such a caring home.
