WELCOME TO THE MEADOWS
The Meadows Residential Care Home caters for 25 residents across 20 bedrooms. It is a family run care home designed for people who like the intimacy and homely feel of a smaller care home. We have been voted one of the Top 20 Care Home’s in London three years running, 2016, 2017 and 2018, and are proud of our reputation for exceptional care. We strive for excellence in all that we do from the food we provide to the quality of our furnishings. Our incredible team go over and beyond to anticipate our residents every need.
To move from home into any care environment is an extremely difficult decision to have to make. The reluctance to make the move, the uncertainty of what lies ahead and the fear of the unknown are all genuine and understandable concerns. Here at The Meadows, the staff are acutely aware of the problems and anxieties moving into care can bring. They will support your transition sensitively with compassion and understanding. All our staff have the knowledge, experience and skills of dealing with the issues and concerns surrounding such an important change, for which reason they will offer you constant support and guidance.
Life at The Meadows is not just about receiving great care, but about enjoying the things in life that you have always enjoyed doing. We have a dedicated staff of carers, senior carers, catering staff and domestic staff who all have a passion for what they do and endeavour to make this care home the most amazing care home and experience for all those in it. The staff are at the heart of any care home and we believe that by only hiring the best we will continue to be one of the best Care Homes for many years to come.
The manager and his team provide a first-class service. My siblings (seven of them) and I conducted extensive research across West London to find ‘the right’ care home for our Irish mam. The requirements list was a tall order from the ethos of the home, friendliness of the staff, quality of the food, accessibility to management, robust medical care, regular stimulus both physical and psychological, easy transport access, regular faith services to a competitive market rate. All eight siblings agreed that The Meadows was a perfect fit, far ahead of its competitors and we would argue it is the best in West London.
Mam has resided at The Meadows for several years now and we love watching her bond with fellow residents, she migrated to London in the fifties from Limerick, and many in the home have similar backgrounds. I have lost count of how many times The Meadows’ team have gone the extra mile for mam, it is such a relief to know that her golden years are spent in the finest caring hands.
My mother has been at The Meadows for 19 months. She suffers from the later stages of dementia. The care she has received is excellent. The staffs’ consistent friendliness and considerate behaviour is making my mother happy and comfortable. The house is immaculate, the only smell is of delicious food freshly prepared every day. The managers are professional and compassionate and have taken time to talk to me and keep me up to date with any change to my mother’s health. They are swift to contact my mother’s doctor in the event of any concern there might be with mum’s well being. My mother is beautifully cared for by the staff, she always looks clean and special cream is applied to her to prevent dryness of skin – her nails manicured and hair regularly cut. Her clothes are always clean and ironed. All people in the home are equally well cared for and their varying needs accommodated.
I am so happy that I found The Meadows, I have recommended this home to everyone I know.
A friend had been suffering from severe and acute depression and could not cope with independent living. In the 6 months since he has has been at The Meadows he has made a remarkable transformation: he has put on weight, he is cheerful and friendly and he is progressing in activities which he had all but given up – reading, watching tv and conversing with people. His mental health was in an extremely parlous state and it is because of The Meadows that he has made such an excellent recovery. Its staff can only be described as excellent – they are attentive to the needs of the residents, they are good communicators and are very caring and kind people. This has to be the result of good management and employment practices. The whole atmosphere in The Meadows is one of “well-being” and on entering the building you sense you have entered a secure and warm environment where residents are well looked after by professionals who care about their welfare. I would highly recommend this care home.
My mother went to The Meadows as a temporary placement until a place became available closer to home. She was treated with respect and dignity and the level of care was exceptional. Communication with staff was excellent and management were always available for support and help. I found this a real help as it was Christmas and a difficult time for Mum to be placed in a home.
The Meadows is a “home from home” and staff work hard to create its calm and homely environment. My Mum was very happy there and thank you to everyone who looked after her and always went the extra mile to give her the care and time she needed. The family run home gives you a feeling that residents are genuinely cared about and are considered as people first, their needs and unique requirements being met as much as possible. Thank you especially to two members of staff in particular- your support was incredible and so greatly appreciated at what was a very difficult time for our family.
