Mowbray Testimonials

My mother, A, became a resident at Mowbray in June this year. I would like to congratulate everyone who works at the home for the excellent level of care that my mother receives.  She likes all the staff and they all treat her with kindness and have high regard for her personal dignity and wellbeing. Nursing elderly people in the last phase of their lives is a difficult job and I feel that everyone at the home needs to know how much they are appreciated by my mother and me. The staff is at all times very busy but they always have time for a smile and a cheery word. All the senior nursing staff are highly approachable, very professional, competent and caring, always being eager to ensure that patients do not suffer discomfort and in particular H, who at this time has the extra workload of being Acting Home Manager, but that does not stop her from putting the residents first. Please ensure that everyone at Mowbray knows that I at least recognise that they are doing a terrific job. With good wishes, P


 Dear J. I just wanted to say thank you for all you did for mum and me whilst she stayed at Mowbray, particularly during her last week and final hours with us. For being there with me at the end, for encouraging me to talk to mum and for allowing me, giving me permission to let go. Thank you for having and creating such a wonderful caring environment you and your team are wonderful. Best wishes, love A. 


To all staff at Mowbray Nursing Home. I have finally gathered my thoughts together and all of you at Mowbray rank highly amongst them. Thank you so very much for looking after my beautiful mum for the final twenty months of her long life. You did far more than look after her and provide for her needs.  You respected her dignity; you showed compassion and made her feel secure and most important of all you gave her love. It was the extra little things that you did for her that meant so much to mum and to me.  For example, you made sure that her top co-ordinated with her skirt, you put her jewellery on for her, you put lipstick and nail polish on her, all of which she loved because she always had been an elegant lady. You comforted her when she was upset about the death of my father who she had adored, and all this, you did with a cheerful smile. I know that yours is a very difficult job, one that not many of us would be able to do and the financial rewards are not exciting either, but, you must find great satisfaction in doing your individual jobs so well and knowing that you have made a huge difference to the final stages of life for such vulnerable people. I have no hesitation in recommending Mowbray as a Nursing Home of the highest order. Once again, many, many heartfelt thanks, Sincerely P


To J, H and staff, thank you so much for the wonderful care you gave C in the last 2 years. Although she never wanted to be in a home, we know she felt well looked after until the end. Also, V and H would like to say a big thank you for the support you gave them. We will both miss our little chats, best wishes,  V, L and H xxx

To all you hard working caring folks! When I think of my mother JH, I think of all you who care for her and am grateful that I had the chance to get to know most of you while “home” from the States Thank you all that you do, CJ


To all staff at Mowbray, words alone cannot express our gratitude for the warm welcome, safe haven and tender loving care you showed by all of you to all of us, lots of love from D and her family.


To everyone at Mowbray, thank you so much for the care you gave to my mum while she was with you. I would like to say that whenever we visited we were greeted with warm smiles, offers of a cup of team. Whenever we asked how mum was, we never had to say who she was you all knew. The last week was made much easier for us all by the support you gave us as a family. Mowbray is a beautiful and caring home; we are so pleased we found you. Thank you for everything, J, C and family


On my return to the States in late August, after mother was sent to Mowbray, a friend asked me how I liked the home she was in.  My response was "I flew home totally at peace with where she is.  The staff are brilliant, caring and, in sitting with mother in the day lounge for two weeks, I saw different members of the staff taking time to pop in, stroke someone's hair , comment on how lovely a person looked, etc., what more could a family member ask for?" My feelings were reinforced at Christmas when my husband and I were there.  Our son was in England on business from California, and he came up to Malvern one evening to visit his grandmother. The staff very kindly put mother in the other lounge so the four of us could have a more private visit; no expression of frustration on the staff's part to manage that. I know its hard work, physically and emotionally, for the staff, and I am most appreciative for the care that mother gets.  It’s not an easy task working with multi-personalities, having assorted physical and mental issues, but everyone remains cheerful and is most helpful (well they have been to me, anyway!). I look forward to seeing everyone in April, and having two weeks with mother. CJ

To all the dear staff at Mowbray, Thank you so much for the care you gave my mum and me; for the respectful; quiet; professional way you all looked after us. For the smiles and your love; your welcoming home; lovely food; endless cups of coffee and hot water! I know that mum was a difficult lady and I sure found her a challenge most of my adult life but at the end you all helped me to realise that she was still my mum and offered me the quiet comfort I needed so that I felt able to be with mum during her last week. Taking the name tags out of her clothes was a big help in the grief process though it felt strange it definitely helped. I know from my nursing career that watching and dealing with family relationships can be a tricky path to tread but you were all wonderful. May God bless you all love from A

Mowbray is a smooth running clean nursing home with incredibly patient and polite staff. It smells fresh and clean and has a sunny airy feel. The residents have lovely gardens to sit in or walk around and there is a good community spirit. It is run quietly and efficiently and at all times the staff do all they can to allay any fears the residents might have, and residents are encouraged to converse and move around wherever possible. One of the best homes i have visited. My mother of 93 is being spiritually and physically very well cared for in Mowbray.
