I wanted to thank you once again for the excellent care which Daddy received from you and from all the Summerdown and Pentlow staff during his stay. He really could not have been in a better place for this closing chapter of his life, and once he had settled in and got to know the staff he was really happy to be so well looked after.

This month we are featuring Barty House, a Canford Healthcare Home in Maidstone, to illustrate how we believe the lifestyle in a care home should be.

It won't be long before we start to see all the bulbs at Barty House Nursing Home Maidstone break into colour. The first thing you will notice on approach is that Barty House is a truly impressive building, and at those special times of the year, such as when the spring bulbs appear, the garden complements this beautifully.

It was comforting for my family to know that he was being looked after by caring and dedicated staff throughout his short stay, who made his final days as comfortable and pain free as possible.
