What people have to say about Haviland House

"Haviland House is beautiful, but it wasn’t long before I knew that not only was it a beautiful building - it had the staff to match it. It took mum a very short time to settle in. She went from strength to strength, gaining weight and confidence and forming wonderful relationships with all the staff. It was a joy to watch her transformation. Haviland House is mum’s home and everyone loves her and we love them." Lorraine, daughter of Dora, Haviland House family member


In 2019 Haviland House was a ‘Best Dementia Care Home’ finalist in the National Dementia Care Awards and the home’s Health & Wellbeing Coordinator, Eileen Garbutt, won the National Activity Providers Association’s ‘Best Activity Coordinator’ award.

What Haviland House’s staff have to say

"The best thing about my job is knowing that my contribution has made a real difference to the enjoyment of a family member’s day. It’s hugely satisfying to see moments like these and I feel privileged to spend time in the company of an extraordinary generation. It’s hard not to become emotionally invested in their world and to develop close bonds with them and their visitors too." Neil, Dementia Support Worker
