Copper Beech House Nursing Centre

My husband received excellent palliative care prior to his death in 2013. I and family received caring support. I received excellent nursing care which progressed into supportive and helpful convalescent care. At all times the staff at all levels were caring and attentive. Always ready to give the little extra which meant so much.

A personal caring team
My mother came to the nursing home in June 2015 from a period in hospital. She died in the 25th of July and throughout her short stay the entire team at Copper Beech demonstrated the absolute highest levels of professionalism. This was delivered with care and dignity. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending this nursing home to anyone.

My dad loved his time at Copper Beech, his room with doors out onto the garden was ideal, it made dad's time room-bound so much nicer as he could see the lovely garden and have fresh air!! The staff were all fantastic, caring, professional and respectful to my dad's needs at all times. Their care for myself also was second to none and they were always there to give a hug or tissue when needed. Thank you Copper Beech you are fab.

I cannot recommend Copper Beech enough. The staff always make you feel that you are the only one despite the number of people they are looking after. The nursing and the care is wonderful - my mother was so happy there and if I ever need care myself that is where I would like to be.

My Aunt came to the home in July 2014, following a fall a fractured hip and hospital stay four months and eventually a stroke which affected the part of the brain which controlled blood pressure she as then unable to sit upright for more than a few I minutes and couldn't stand at all without passing out. So she was unable to go back to her flat where up until then she had managed with carers four times daily and family support. She was registered blind with mobility problems and incontinence. Copper Beech cannot be faulted in their care and attention to my aunt and we wouldn't hesitate in recommending them to anyone. Staff were always cheerful, welcoming and attentive. My Aunt died on 2nd April everyone treated her with utmost dignity.

My mother spent over two years at Copper Beeches until her death this week. We have found the staff unfailingly courteous supportive and caring towards my mother and our family. It has been a very stressful few weeks up to her death and the staff have made a big difference to how we have coped with her last illness and death. We have heard positive recommendations from the under takers, doctors and friends.

I stayed here for two weeks after a fall in which I fractured a vertebrae. The care I received was excellent and the atmosphere warm and friendly. There is 24 hour covered by qualified nurses and the local GP practice calls in twice a week. It was easier to a see a GP while resident than booking an appointment!! If I have one criticism it is that the beds were really uncomfortable, the bedding synthetic and scratchy. Room for improvement there, otherwise 4 Star.

I was given seven days by the council to find a care home for my aunt, Living in Edinburgh this was tricky! no one would recommend a place so it was the phone call with Patricia High the manager giving my selection. My aunt received care of the highest standard form her admission in 2012 until she died in December 2014. The staff were outstanding and those standards are instilled form the leadership at the top. I cannot thank them all enough for their care and attention.

My mother was admitted to Copper Beech for palliative care as a result of an aggressive brain tumour. In the 3 months that she was there, she was treated with dignity, compassion and respect by all the staff and, we as a family were shown the same. The staff have all been together at Copper Beech for many years and this shows in the friendliness and teamwork within the home. Their caring and professional approach was much appreciated.

My aunt and uncle have now been in Copper Beech for over a year. One is always nervous when choosing a place for ones relatives, worrying that they will not be looked after kindly. Copper Beech has more than reassured me, and my extended family. Their care, understanding, patience and help has all been wonderful, it even began before the time they went in, by Pat, the manager ringing me in a follow up call after my initial enquiry to see how things were and offering help. I was given a tour of the home and full description of care being offered. Help for my aunt was immediate on arrival with the provision of a colostomy bag. The staff are always very informative and helpful. Great care and understanding is given to make my aunt and uncle's final years as comfortable and happy as possible.

My husband became a resident in November 2014. The home is excellent, clean, the staff are friendly and always happy. I visit every other day, I have lunch with my husband in his room and coffee is available, I can help myself in the kitchen for this, free of charge, my meal costs £3.00. The office staff are there if you need any help and Pat, the manager, is warm and you feel comfortable to talk to her, I feel at ease in her company. My husband has not yet joined in with any activities at present but there are several choices I believe. I feel happy that I got my husband into this home.

Even in the most difficult/complex situations (in which my wife finds herself) if any minor etc problem arises then a sensible resolution is put in place. It is not a faceless bureaucracy and so is open to input and discussion to establish a solution.

I have been a resident at Copper Beech since 11/11/13 and regard myself as being extremely lucky to find a vacancy there. I am unable to think of any aspect of the regime that could be improved upon.
