In spite of increasing medical and physical demands of residents the friendly family atmosphere that impressed me four years ago still exists, because of my blindness I am unable to join in every activity but they are all well organised, varied and carefully considered. Special outdoor events are held in the lovely garden which surrounds the house and I am still enjoying my stay here at they age of 93, after four years. I appreciate the birthday and Christmas presents they always give to us.

Our Mother, aged 92 & suffering from Alzheimers was unable to continue living independently in her own home, and became a resident in Stirlings home in February 2015. This was an unsettling time for her and us, but I have to say that the staff at Stirlings have made the transition as early & as comfortable as possible. Their patience is outstanding, we are always made to feel welcome, and comments/ suggestions regarding Mums care as thoughtfully received and acted upon. As a family we are very grateful.
