You cannot improve upon perfection. Having visited many care homes, as a visitor and previously as chairman of Forth Valley Health Council, this is by far the best I have ever seen. I would say the management is superb and this is reflected throughout the staff.

My mum is very well looked after and all of her needs are met. She is very happy here. The staff are very caring and go beyond the call of duty. The home has recently been re-furbished and a cinema has been added, showing films every afternoon and evening. The meals provided are to the highest quality and all the residents dignity is preserved all the time. If I have a question or query about mums care, it is always dealt with immediately and to my satisfaction. The nursing and care staff are very approachable. There is also plenty of activities going on to stimulate the residents.
