I am the power of attorney to a 98yr old lady who has happily been resident here for nearly two years. During my visits to her, it was clear that I could assist her and Gracewell Bookham further by volunteering to run the Friday Flower Club where residents are supported and encouraged to arrange flowers that are then placed in the bistro coffee area and for vases in the ground floor dining room. We change the theme each week to keep everyone interested and stimulated. I have helped further by assisting at the one and two year anniversary garden parties, as well as running the summer outdoor activities with my husband who is also a volunteer. We played green bowls, putting and french boules. Recently I helped the activities staff to have an afternoon tea party to raise funds for Alzheimer’s World Day. All of these have been great fun and rewarding for all the residents. By volunteering, I have been able to feel closer to understanding how the different departments all function.

Gracewell is wonderful. The staff have a very difficult job, but do it so well. They are all nationalities and ages, but nearly all speak good English. They are all so kind to my husband, who has Parkinson's Disease and dementia. Unbelievably, the atmosphere is lively and relaxed.

Although residential care was not what I had envisioned for my mother, it became necessary for her safety. Much to my surprise, she has settled well, and I believe she is as happy as she could be. This gives me great peace of mind. All the staff are lovely to her and me, and nothing is ever too much trouble. I recommend it highly.

We cannot praise Gracewell of Adderbury enough. The care given to my mother was exceptional. The surroundings and fabric of the home are superb but it's the staff that make it so fantastic. They are like one big family who really do care. They not only looked after Mum, they looked after our family when we visited, kept us updated on Mums progress and they really make the place feel like home. Thank you "Gracewell team".
