Braeburn Home

My mother Rosemary Guise was a resident for nearly 8 years. She was looked after with love and very good care. It was really a home from home and the carers were just like family. At her passing she was treated with great dignity. Her room was light and airy and kept immaculately clean. I would thoroughly recommend this home to people who want their loved ones to enjoy their final years in peace and comfort.

Braeburn Home

The only sadness about my mothers stay was that it was to short. The 8 weeks in residence saw her regain spirit and her characteristic sense of fun, lost during a period of hospitalisation. It is difficult to imagine a more caring and comforting team of staff and environment, seamlessly marrying the needs of residents with efficient operation of the home. The vital elements required to create a home are present and even in the short time she was at Braeburn she called it home.
