My wife Kathleen Jennifer Snow .( known as Jennifer), entered care at Bethsalem a little more than 1 year ago suffering from dementia. She is in a secure area and her care could not have been better. The staff are always helpful and provide a great deal of socialising and emotional support as well as physical and medical support . I visit 3 or 4 times a week and family visits on most other days ,so we see a lot of the operation of the home . We have great admiration for the care staff, the lifestyle staff and the nurses and Physiotherapists who do an extremely difficult task with grace, compassion and forbearance. The administration communicates well with the family and the organisation is flexible ,facilitating Jen attending events on site (childrens visits, concerts . church) which not all residentsa of the secure ward are up to ,, and most weeks . lunch at a cafe with family. The surrounding and embedded gardens are very good and much used Jennifer, with help , planted her own little raised garden bed and we visit it with her on many visits. I have sung the praises Bethsalem to many. I spent a fortnight of respite care with Jennifer in another nursing home and Jennifer spent some time in yet another one , but Bethsalem is much better for Jennifers needs.
