Houndswood House Care Home

My mother-in-law has been a resident at Houndswood House for 4 years having suffered with dementia since 2008. Whilst she does not wish to be there and is delusional about her care, from my experience I can say that she is dealt with in a patient, kind and respectful way. I comment the staff for their tolerance and humanity and am grateful for the care they provide.

We always arrive on different days at different times and are met with smiles by staff and carers. Even at mealtimes carers happy to accommodate our visit. Mum always clean and presentable and if I need to go to her room to take items I have taken, it is always clean and fresh, despite her incontinence. I feel happy and relaxed about her environment at Houndswood House.
