Choosing the right home
Choosing which residential care home is best suited for your loved one is something that demands careful thought.
One of the ways Morris Care help is by offering trial stays, which aim to give peace of mind and allow you to experience our care first hand. During the trial stay you are able to come and visit the home whenever you like to ensure that your loved one is comfortable and happy and importantly, being cared for just how you would like.
We have no set visiting times at any of our homes so you can come and share a cup of tea or a meal whenever you choose, although we ask that you notify us before if you are going to be eating with us. Or if the weather is nice, you are more than welcome to make use of the landscaped gardens to share some time alone with your loved one.
At Morris Care we will do everything we can to make the transition into one of our care homes as easy as possible. You are even encouraged to bring any family pets to help smooth the transition (as long as they are well behaved!).
If you have any questions about our care homes or you would like some advice, our nurse managers and wider support team have experience and knowledge to help guide you through this time. Just ask and we will help in any and every way we can.
We have also answered some questions you may have whilst choosing a nursing home. Find them here.

March at Morris Care
As we look forward to spring, March brings some exciting social activities and clubs for our residents to enjoy.
How to keep warm in winter
Just as we thought spring was approaching, temperatures across Shropshire and Cheshire are set to plummet this weekend and over the course of next week, with temperatures reaching as low as -8°C in the middle of the day. A cold snap referred to as “beast from the east” is set to plunge temperatures in the UK below freezing as cold air makes its way over from Siberia.
Bilingualism and Dementia
Various studies state that learning a second language is much easier when you are younger and in the “critical period”, when your brain is more absorbent. This could be the reason why many of us shy away from taking on the challenge of learning another language in our later years, because we think it will be too hard or too time consuming.
