Belonging, care and pulling together
My Father has been treated with kindness and respect at all times since his arrival at Bramley. It is a hard stage of life, but Bramley Court has worked with us to make it as positive as possible. The best part is that we, as family members, feel that we are part of the Bramley community which has made even the most difficult aspects of handing over care bearable. That and the lovely care staff. I can highly recommend a massage with Amy in the Holistic Care centre! Thank you.

Great care
I just wanted to say thank you for your great care in looking after my Mum. She was often anxious, but I can see that your team did their best to keep her comfortable and at ease. They were kind and caring to both her and me and I greatly appreciate their sensitivity.

Consistently amazing, far surpassing any expectations
Dear Carebase, a quick note to say that my aunt has just died after three years at Bramley Court in Histon, having been cared for by both the general and dementia teams at different times. During her stay the staff have been consistently amazing, far surpassing any expectations we ever had of nursing home care. It wasn't just her physical care, but also the emotional support and relationships that the staff provided which made the most of her last years of life. What you do is much more than just a business, so Thank You! It's a bit unfair to single out individual members of staff, but amongst others, Maureen and her team are all pure gold.

The employees make this Care Home special
My aunt has just passed away after almost three years at Bramley Court. During this time the staff have been just brilliant, engaging with her and caring for her beyond what we ever expected or hoped for from a Care Home. It wasn't just the physical care that was special, but also the emotional relationship and support that the staff provided, right up to the end last week. My aunt was cared for both in the 'general' area and also in the dementia ward, and this care was evident at all times. We couldn't have wished for anything more from everyone who looked after her.

Supportive, understanding, caring
To all the staff at Bramley Court, Thank you all so much from the bottom of my heart for all the love and professional care that you gave to your residents, my dad included. You helped us through a critical time when we were at a loss as to what to do. Janine and her team gave my Mum so much support and we both have learned so much about caring for people with dementia from watching them doing their work with smiles and understanding. I shall be forever grateful, not only for what you have done for my parents, but also for the way you have done it.

Understanding, compassion and endless patience
We would like to thank you all for Mum's care, for the care and kindness given to her over the last five years. You all dealt with her idiosyncrasies with understanding, compassion and endless patience. We were both very upset when we had to find a residential home for Mum, but with all the personalised care and attention she received from Bramley Court, we felt great confidence and reassurance.

The staff are wonderful
I want to thank all the staff at Bramley Court Care Home personally for the kindness shown to Mum during her nearly six year stay. All the staff were so wonderful. It is not just the work they do but they way in which they do it. I know Mum appreciated it as much as we did. Thank you also for the kindness that was extended to our family on visits.

First class care
My wife has been in Bramley for nearly a year, she is 66 years old. Her care has been first class, the staff are excellent and I feel part of the Bramley Family. The staff look after my wife very well and care for her in every way. They also worry about me and how I fell and am I looking after myself. I join in any activities they have and now help in any way I can. I would recommend Bramley.

A fab place
Last week there was a party at Bramley Court. I just wanted to say how much I enjoyed it, I work in an office opposite and last Friday the usually quiet atmosphere was interrupted by the most amazing music and sounds of people having fun. It was lovely. I opened the windows and sang along, badly, at my desk. What a fab place you are running there. I am looking forward to the next event.

Compassionate, caring and professional
My wife was a patient at Bramley Court. Throughout her stay she was treated with compassion and care by all staff on her floor. I cannot fault the caring atmosphere at Bramley Court and all visitors, who were made welcome by the staff every time, commented on the homely yet professional attitude they observed throughout the home. I was also impressed by the way I was welcomed on my daily visits. I had the run of the kitchen during the time my wife was able to take food by mouth and I was able to help myself to innumerable cups of tea. I hope that my farewell gift will be used to express my gratitude to all those who made her time at Bramley Court as pleasant and pain free as possible. Not once did my wife have the slightest cause to complain about any aspect of her treatment.

Mum was in the safest of hands
To all the staff and carers at Bramley Court, Thank you so much for all your patience, care and support to our Mum this past year. We really felt that our Mum has been in the safest of hands and you provided so much guidance and warmth through a difficult time. I know our Mum appreciates all the times you went above the call of duty to be helpful, friendly and supportive to her.

Wonderful care and kindness
My husband was at Bramley Court for five years and the care and kindness shown to him was wonderful. All the staff were helpful and kind. I saw myself how professional and hard working everyone was, from the cleaners who keep everywhere spotless to carers who although very busy always make time for every resident. The nurses are so good, very encouraging to residents and making sure they were comfortable, nothing is too much trouble. The food is good and nutritious, well cooked and there was always a good choice, and the laundry is always lovely and clean. The gardens are attended with great care, with a colourful atmosphere of tranquillity. The managers and admin staff are always helpful, ready to make life easier, especially for the relatives. Everyone should be proud of the care they provide.

Loving care
My lovely Mum came into Bramley Court earlier this year to receive end of life care, but after much loving care she was well enough to leave, amazing. When she came back into care in February, we both never looked back. You are all wonderful people; you all have good kind hearts and kind souls and you all had a special place in Mum's heart too. I know this because she told me. You weren't just her carers, you became her close friends, or rather an extension to her family. And you can't get much better than that.

Heartfelt thanks
To everyone at Bramley that has looked after Ma in the last 11 months, for every aspect of care, every ordinary task done extraordinarily well with love, my heartfelt thanks. I would like to thank the gardener too, Ma enjoyed walking around the garden. I hope the next resident will enjoy the rose planted outside her room. Thank you too for all your support of the family.

A well run home
To all the staff at Bramley Court, I am just writing to say thank you for helping to make my visit to see my dear friend so pleasant. I am now back home having enjoyed 10 days with my daughter. I was prepared to not see my friend again now that I do not drive long distances. It is good that we can still write to each other. I hear all the things which you do and both my daughter and I said how well the home is run. Thank you for the care you give.

My mother settled in well and enjoys the continuity of care, the wonderful activities, companionship of staff and residents. The attitude of staff is calm, positive and active response to issues arising and this gives an upbeat feeling to events etc. Mother says the staff are kind to her and sensitive when washing and doing personal care. Painting her nails is so fun and she likes the hairdresser too. Foot care - chiropody needs to be done more regularly.

My mother lived at Bramley Court for the last 7 and a half years of her life, initially with residential care and later with dementia care. I can very highly recommend it. In particular the care staff were wonderful, always attentive, caring and ensuring her well-being. Management of the home was not entirely satisfactory during the first few years, but in the last 4 years has been very good.

Since moving into Bramley Court last July, mum has improved so much. She seems really settled and at home. The staff are more than caring, and everything is brilliant. There is a pleasant atmosphere and everyone is friendly.

Since my father-in-law moved in last August we have had nothing but praise for Bramley. They have made him feel very safe and he is now eating a normal healthy diet and is kept clean and presentable. He is so happy with all the staff, which gives us peace of mind when we go on holidays. Any queries or concerns we have are taken on board straight away or have already been picked up and noted. We are so pleased he is in Bramley and know that his final years will be happy and safe.

I regularly recommend Bramley Court as a care/nursing home. My involvement with Age UK enables me to come in contact with an number of older people so its nice from first hand experience to recommend the facility to them. I would also like to add that I have had reason to complain on a couple of occasions and i'm happy to say my concerns were addressed satisfactorily and quickly.

Bramley Court looked after my father for the last two years of his life. Throughout his stay at the home he was treated with kindness and dignity, and his designated carers were always super. Bramley Court is extremely well run and exudes an aura of safety, care and comfort.

We tried 8 nursing homes in Cambridge, some I wouldn't have house spiders in. Bramley Court was an eye opener. The atmosphere was warm and friendly. It meet us at the door and stayed. After that reception there was nowhere else we would place mum. I am visiting at least 4 times a week and the treatment and staff are excellent. I am so glad we held out for a place here. I have and will continue to recommend Bramley Court. A home from home, brilliant.
