We have looked around the various facilities for my husband who is in need of palliative care, and my sister and I choose Lexham Park.

My mother was a short stay client. Every member of staff made her feel welcome from the nurses, housekeepers and kitchen staff. All were bright and helpful.

Raewyn Winiata from the Ministry of Health wrote, "of the many 100's of reports I read, very few stand out in terms of recognising the needs of younger people and the issues that arise when living with older people who are generally over 80 years of age. One of these was from Lexham Park".
