I have been really impressed with the Miramar at Herne Bay. Not only is the building well laid out, large open entrance hall more like a hotel than a care home, with a welcoming coffee lounge and sitting room clearly visible as you walk in. But the staff are welcoming too. As I walked down the hall way every member of staff I passed said hello and stopped to chat to my client who has in fact just moved in. That's how impressed we were!
I have eaten lunch several times at The Miramar, including today, and it has been very good. Three courses, wine if you would like and laid on tables with linen cloths and napkins. I particularly like the way the restaurant is set up. It's not one big room with everybody bunched together but they have managed to create little areas that make the experience more intimate and if you would like to eat alone, more comfortable.
The 'suites', because you can't call them rooms are amongst the best I have ever seen. Good sized double bedroom, separate sitting room with kitchen - including oven, hob, fridge and en suite wet room. Double doors onto the balcony and sea views finish it off.
Highly recommended and if you are looking for care, definitely worth a look.
I had to call you this morning to thank you for your support and advice at a very difficult time.
Without having met me, or my Mum, Debbie understood exactly what was needed and the home she recommended was indeed perfect. When Dad and I visited we recognised immediately it was spot on for mum.
As a first step she is trying out another home that she has heard good things about - and we must respect her views - but I have Debbie and my preferred choice up my sleeve as a next step. I have recommended Chosen with Care to a friend in a similar position and would not hesitate to do so again. Thank you Debbie.
