Meet Philip and Wendy – Resident at Bartlett’s Care Home

I’m Wendy, this is my father Phillip.

I mean, nothing is this as pleasant as home, but I can find no fault here. The accommodation is very good, it is very clean and the garden is splendid, and a beautiful view. So I think you’d have to be a very difficult person to please, if you said that you weren’t very happy here. But I certainly am, it is very good. But it was nearest as we could get in the sense that, his home had a south-facing, an old cottage.

South-facing garden with a view of the Chilterns. So obviously, you used to visit. This is very good indeed, very nice, very quiet. Home from home, we didn’t have eighteen acres, it is very nice and this is familiar because I think long ago I’ve been up and walked up that hill.

You know, I think the church is that way anyway. I sleep well here, so I’ve always tended to sleep quite well, which is lucky. Some people don’t, you know. Why we chose here, father used to visit, when he lived in the village. One of the old ladies came here and he used to visit Elenor here and he told me about it. I’d actually spotted it, cause I used to drive to and fro. And yes, he used to say this beautiful place, this fantastic garden and everything and lovely rooms and that so it was always, obviously I googled it,
the sort of building, the quality building, the old building.

But then with the new, done in the similar style and the if you like the the absolute was the 18 acres of grounds. These beautiful grounds that my father could do as he was used to doing, sitting in a lovely garden and just looking at a fabulous view, enjoying the sun and he walks a lot, don’t you, darling? I do tend to, I don’t suffer from any lumbago or anything. So no, its, but I’m aware that one should have some exercise.

Wendy’s sister who sadly passed away, she was a botanist, so she knew anything and everything about flowers. And I don’t, you know, and I just like to see them. Yes, I don’t necessarily know what they are, but that doesn’t really matter. Not to me. And in the spring the area over there had all the violet’s. Oh yes, that’s right. Yes. And the snowdrops and roses. And that’s right. And then the bluebells.

I don’t think I would get lonely ever, as long as I had some books. I don’t, if you like, crave company. Sometimes I don’t, I wish there wasn’t company. You know, I’m probably not alone in that respect. Well, I don’t think it’s for if you don’t wish to do something, you’re not made to do it. You’re always invited to do the activities, aren’t you?
