Forthbank Care Home

I like my room view of garden. I enjoy some of the food, some is to my taste. I like food like mince and tatties, not posh food. Staff are very helpful, nothing is too much trouble, Morag is a cheery place. My day is filled with plenty to do if I choose to do lots of activities and the staff are always cheery. My room is always clean and tidy.

My room is the way I like it with my things in it to make it homely. I enjoy the activities that are of interest to me. Food, good choice. The manager is nice and friendly, and smart. My room is always clean. Staff look after me and treat me with dignity by giving me a lady carer rather than a man by request.

This care home is one of the best in the area providing good quality care for the elderly, some of whom have very complex needs. The staff are kind and treat each resident with care and dignity. The building itself is in need of a facelift which is scheduled for this year.

My friend appears well looked after medically and physically. He seems very content in the home and is well attended to by the nursing staff. Possibly a little more entertainment might be stimulating.

Caring staff, safe environment. Every resident treated as an individual and known and addressed by their Christian names. There should be an improvement when promised refurbishment takes place. Promised in the near future and includes outside environs.

My mother Freda has been in Fourthbank Nursing Home for five years, during that time I visited her every other day and never saw any member of staff act in any way that wasn't correct. They were helpful and treated residents with love and dignity. When my mother was ill they treated me the same, lots of support.

My mother has been a resident since June 2012 and right from the outset I felt very pleased and comfortable with the home and the staff. I visit five or six times a week and always inf my mother in good form - I can't thank the staff enough for the companionship and care they afford her. Any doubts I ever had about placing my mother in a care home were soon dispelled - thank you HC One.

Forthbank Care Home

In September, my father arrived at Forthbank with a number of serious health issues and stayed there until his dead in November. We were kept informed at all times of my father's health issues and his dignity was always preserved. The care and attention he received was second to none, with the friendly staff always giving that bit extra to help and support him and to ensure his comfort. The home had a lovely family atmosphere with all the residents looking happy and well cared for. On visits we were always made to feel welcome by all members of staff acknowledging us. A lovely home!
