My aunt came to Lauriston after two other local homes said they could not cope with her falling so much. A programme was immediately put into practice. I can not fault the care and attention she received even as her dementia got worse. She really enjoyed the food there and ate well right up to the end. The end of life care was very good and I was always listened to when explaining some difficulty. The staff were all genuinely upset when she died and very caring for my cousin and myself.
