Some recent testimonials:

Many of our residents and families are kind enough to write to us to thank us for the care we have provided. Here is a selection of recent letters we have received. The original letters are available for inspection.

“Dear Sheelagh, Lynne, Aaron and all the girls. What can I say? The care and passion showed to P whilst she was at Newgrange was wonderful. I was frequently moved to tears by the way you all handled her during the regular turning process. The fact that she lived so long was, I think, largely due to the excellent care she was receiving. I have nothing but admiration for all that you did for her. With grateful thanks.” J

"My mum had such amazing care whilst she was with you for which I will forever be grateful." V

"You made Mum's years at Newgrange very happy and we can't thank you enough for that." SJ

"I visit this care home on a monthly basis and every time it makes my day. My job is to entertain but it is so easy here as the atmosphere is always so lovely. The carers are attentive, well presented and are always with the residents getting involved in entertainment and also encouraging everyone to get involved who wants to. It is a genuine atmosphere and I would entertain here every day if I could." AP

Environmental Responsibility

At Newgrange residential care home in Cheshunt we are very concerned about our impact on the environment and want to improve what we do continuously and strive for a carbon neutral footprint.

To this end we have already implemented several "green" initiatives to focus on energy use, waste disposal and water usage. In addition to this, three years ago we implemented a large, state of the art solar panel system on our south facing roofs. This generates up to 10 kilowatts of electricity which will be enough to power the home much of the time and also feed electricity back to the national grid.
