Review of March Glen Care Centre on Friday 12 July 2013 by Iona Corsie (Sister of resident)

March Glen is ideal for my sister, who needs 24 hr care now. The building is modern, clean and bright. The staff are very caring, friendly and cheerful, which makes it a lovely place for Elaine. I am confident that Elaine is happy and well cared for and this is a weight of my mind. There are always events and outings planned which Elaine really enjoys and I know that the staff always put her best interests first when arranging trips etc.

Review of March Glen Care Centre on Tuesday 18 June 2013 by Alastair Thomson (Husband)

My comments are specific to the overall management and care provided within the Avon unit of the care home. I am very happy with the care and support offered to my wife and self. Communication is generally good and to the benefit of my wife and self. Activities are person centred and high praise should go to those involved. Negative aspect in this unit is that room size is too small for family residents needs. Overall I would recommend this unit to people considering residence in this facility.

Great staff and care. If my mum could no longer care for me this is definitely where I would like to say. I love coming here as it is friendly, the staff make me laugh loads. I get depressed and the staff take that away as they talk to me and make me feel great.

Review of March Glen Care Centre on Wednesday 27 February 2013 by Lilian H (Mother)

My daughter has been a resident here for one year and six months and the level of care is brilliant. Staff are so helpful and understanding very approachable. It is like a home from home when you visit making refreshments etc. Accommodation lovely and the fact you can bring in your own personal belongings adds to personal aspect of the home. Meals appear to be first class and nothing is too much of a bother. Every request is taken care of. Social activities again very good, outings out to various things of interest and also in house entertainment e.g Bingo, Painting, Baking, Films, Arts and Crafts altogether wonderful. Relatives always fully informed.
