Springfield - The care home that is home from home

Established some 30 years ago (with only two owners over that period), Springfield Care Home is a residential care home for the elderly located in an attractive period house, complemented by a purpose-build modern extension and extensive landscaped gardens – we were highly commended in the Gardens in Bloom Competition 2019. We're within walking distance of the centre of March, an attractive market town in Cambridgeshire. Springfield care home's nearest major towns are Wisbech, Peterborough, Huntingdon, Cambridge and Ely.

What the care homes regulator says

We saw kind and caring interaction between staff and the people who used the service. People we spoke with were complimentary about the staff. One person told us, "[Staff] have been very good with me." Another person said, "I'm grateful for what [staff] do, I'm very happy here." A third person said, "I had lots of help from the staff to get settled in."

What our residents' families say about us

“We wish to convey our heartfelt thanks to all staff at Springfield. The care, patience and love between you and our mother was second to none. You should pride yourselves on being part of a team with each member bringing together their individual skills, talents and professionalism to form a warm, happy home environment. Words alone cannot convey our thanks. We are sure that Springfield was the right place for her.”

NF and PR (son and daughter of resident)

“On behalf of mum we would like to thank you all, most sincerely, for all the love and attention you have GIVEN mum in the 17 years she was with you at Springfield. We couldn't have wished for better care for mum and we will forever be grateful.”

R&D (daughters of resident)

“I would like to take the opportunity to commend your staff for the kindly manner in which they treated my mother. She returned home far stronger after spending time at Springfield. Both Carol Shepherd and her deputy Carol Ann were particularly helpful.”

LF (daughter of resident)

“Mother finds the standards of meals to be very high with ‘little extras’ (such as her own teapot!) adding to that feeling of belonging. Within the town, Springfield Care Home has always enjoyed a reputation for being homely and caring. The professionalism of its management and hard work of all the carers ensures that all residents enjoy high standards of day to day care together with excellent attention from the town's medical agencies.”

J.W. (son of resident)

“Our Mum has been at Springfield Care Home for four and a half years. During this time my sister and I visit most days and we are always met with a warm and friendly welcome. Our Mum has received excellent care. She now needs extra care and they always make sure she is comfortable and meet all her needs. The meals are first class. We often say thank goodness for Springfield Care Home.”

JT and LK (daughters of resident)

“The Manager, Assistant Manager, and all the staff at Springfield Care Home are very approachable, kind, considerate and professional. There is great teamwork. Happy staff make a happy home. What has also impressed us is that the residents also care and take great interest in each others well being, which is lovely. Our auntie couldn't be in a better care home which makes us very happy. Auntie enjoys all the activities within the care home and instead of being lonely she now has a large family once again”

D.M & M.M (nephew and niece of resident)

“My mother, now aged 102, has been resident at Springfield for over four years and throughout she has been cared for with thoughtful compassion and dignity. The management and caring staff create a friendly, homely atmosphere and are clearly committed to good standards and practices.”

T.P. (son of resident)

“My brother and I looked at three care homes in March. On visiting Springfield, the one we finally chose, we were impressed with the homely atmosphere.The staff were so friendly and helped my mother settle in with great dedication. My mother is always telling me how good they are to her.”

Reviews on other websites

“My mother has been a resident for over four years. Living quite a distance away, l feel confident that she is safe and well cared for. The staff are easy to approach and very helpful on visits and over the phone. The management and staff are quick to deal with any concerns they or I have and prompt in contacting me. She is on friendly terms with the staff who have mostly been there since before her arrival and is encouraged to take part in any of the many activities going on.”

Jane K (Daughter of Resident)

“My mother has received excellent care and consideration at Springfield in the year she has been there. A member of the family visits almost every day, so we are able to keep a close eye on things. Visitors also are treated with care and respect, and the whole set-up is very friendly and as much home-from-home as they can make it. The food is generally very good, Mum doesn't eat fish, which they serve every Friday, so they always provide her with something different. They provide drinks and snacks throughout the day, which visitors also are offered.”

Review from Margaret M (Daughter of Resident)

“My mother is a resident at Springfields she has been there for 2 years plus now I am a registered nurse of 37 years and have worked in elderly care all my career so feel I’m a good judge here. My mum is exceptionally happy here the staff are lovely they are friendly, helpful and I have confidence that my mother is safe there. When I have an issue it is dealt with promptly and I get feedback too. Staff remain at this home for a long time and it is good for continuity of care. The management is prompt and deals with things in a timely manner we visit on many occasions at various times and never have any concerns, we are welcomed warmly into the home offered drinks and made comfortable we are very happy with mum being at Springfields.”
