This is our first experience of a care home in detail.
Overall our experience has been good and the staff are very friendly approachable. There is a good stable foundation to the care and communication. Only one issue I contracted a stomach bug from a virus in the home (carried by a hospital returnee)

In our experience the staff always seem to try their best in sometimes testing circumstances. The staff have changed a lot over last few months so seems to have lost some of its continuity. Questions are usually answered and overall residents seem well cared for.

I am pleased my mum has just settled into home life in Balmoral. I am still coming to terms, after caring for mum, for the last eight years. I don't worry too much about her as I did because she now has 24/7 care. She has now been in Balmoral a year on 6th February 2016.

Due to my cousin being profoundly deaf (myself too) the deaf awareness is excellent. The staff are very caring and make sure I know what is happening too. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff to help out.

My 95 year old father spent his last 11 months in the Balmoral Care Home before passing away at the end of December 2014. During the time of his stay the standard of care was exceptional and my family and I owe a debt of gratitude to the staff for their care and compassion during his last months. Nothing was too much trouble for them and we had the satisfaction of knowing he was in well trained hands.
