My wife has been in Strathview Care home for approximately three weeks. So far they have provided an excellent overall service, caring, considerate, personal, helpful and friendly. Willing to put themselves out to ensure the comfort and care for my wife. Welcoming and everything more than I had expected. With our previous experience of care homes, Strathview is excellent. The manager is very efficient, approachable and easy to communicate with when required - Top Marks.

With some haste we needed to arrange respite care for my friend. Strathview were able to help us all. The detail, information and support they gave during this initial period was excellent. The care and attention delivered since then has also been excellent. The support, care detail and environment in which my friend now resides is great. We have just had a lovely birthday party for my friend at Strathview. Many thanks to them all.

Management accessibility is excellent, keep you informed of incidents. The care staff treat you as a welcome visitor, always had something to say. Staff all took a genuine interest in your relative. There was not a sense of us and them we were all doing our bit for the resident concerned. No hesitation in recommending Strathview to anyone under taking a search for a "home" for a vulnerable resident.

I would definitely recommend this home. My mother is happy here as she is well looked after. All the staff are great with her as they are so patient especially as she has dementia. When I come to visit Mum I can see for myself how the staff interact with the residents. The manager looks after the residents and the staff and makes sure everyone is involved with decisions regarding mum. This is the first time I have had direct family in a care home and obviously had my own concerns and now I'm wondering why! This place is a must for anyone considering using a care home.

My mother-in-law began going to Strathview for respite in July 2014. Although anxious at first, she soon became very relaxed about going in for respite. The staff were always so welcoming and friendly and there was always activities and things she could get involved in. As her illness worsened respite became more frequent until she was finally admitted in January 2015 for full time care. The care she receives in Strathview is excellent. The staff are extremely caring and friendly and there is always a pleasant and happy atmosphere. When we visit my mother-in-law, she is always happy and dressed immaculately. We are very happy with the care she receives in Strathview.

The compassion and commitment of the staff are what makes Strathview and outstanding care home. Having had previous experience of this when they nursed my Aunt, it made the difficult time of making the decision to move mum into care so much easier. As I said to my Brother I would be distressed at the thought of mum going into care but going into to Strathview has a much more reassuring feeling ! on my last visit mum looked so happy and well. Her clothes had been chosed with care and I know the staff do everything they can to ensure her dignity is maintained. There was a happy and relaxed feel and family are warmly included on their visits. I can't recommend Strathview highly enough. Thank You.

My Mother chose this care home to live close to me and my wife as surviving family. The fact that this was her choice, based on a short term visit, has contributed to this being a very positive move. She is able to enjoy and fully access all opportunities while not yet having physical or mental needs.

Mother has been resident for over a year now, the staff being caring and helpful in settling mum into the community of the home, surprised at how well mum is doing in a complete and happy unit, staff going that little bit further to make sure all resident`s are looked after and entertained. I found it more like a family (extended of course). Welcomed at every visit with a smile. I would recommend this home to others.

We are so pleased with the level of care and support my mother in law has received since living at Strathveiw, the staff are warm and friendly and very professional. The care home manager is approachable and always willing to answer any queries we may have. As my mother in law was very low when she arrived it's now great to see her back to her happy bubbly self again. There is always someone there for her to talk to and regular entertainment and activities to keep her busy. Cannot fault Strathview in any department and would highly recommend to anyone looking for a caring, friendly and homely atmosphere for their loved ones.
