My only recommendation would be for the home to keep a permanent manager for longer as they have had a few over the past 3 years. Apart form that I am happy with everything else.

My dad has been a resident at Dussindale for about 7 weeks. I find the compassion and care that Dussindale provides is way above standard. Dads needs are very demanding but the staff take everything in their stride and coupled with everyday needs. I cannot praise the overall service enough from doctors, staff and NHS.

I visit my father everyday (hes been in Dussindale now for 21 weeks), you get to see and hear everything that does on and I can only go with my observations that this is an all round great place to spend the end of your life, if being at your own home is not an option.
