Review of Balfarg Care Home on Wednesday 20 August 2014 by Jennifer Burgess (Daughter of resident)

My father was made very welcome and given 1st class care from day one at Balfarg. At first he was not permanent although he is now and I have never wanted him to be anywhere else since experiencing the care and attention given to him at Balfarg.

Review of Balfarg Care Home on Thursday 22 May 2014 by Jane M (Daughter of resident convalesing)

Mum was transferred to Balfarg from the Victoria - no beds were available there, whilst a care package was being put in place. We have nothing but praise for the home. The staff were all very supportive and helpful in assisting us to get mum well enough to get her back into her own home. The food and care was well presented and helped build her back up.

Review of Balfarg Care Home on Thursday 27 February 2014 by Margaret Ross (My aunt is resident here)

The interior of the home has been greatly improved but there are still bedrooms that need a bit of decoration and furniture updated. Most of the staff are pleasant and helpful but the shortage of a manager doesn't look too good.

Review of Balfarg Care Home on Friday 10 January 2014 by John Leitch (residents son)

My father received excellent first class care in his time as a resident in Balfarg care home. Any care home is only as good as the staff the employ, Balfarg has a good mixture of young staff and older, they all work well together and can't do enough for the residents. The thongs that come to mind is when chatted to my father they always brought a smile to his face, he really enjoyed his time in the care home and all the attention he got. The standard of cleanliness is also very good and the housekeepers always stopped to chat to my father. The food within the care home was excellent with a varied menu to suit all. Every time we went to visit we were welcomed with tea biscuits and a smile from the staff. It's the little things like the newspaper Delivered to the room in the morning and the residents entertainment that makes all the difference. If your looking at any care home think staff staff staff - excellent first class at Balfarg

Review of Balfarg Care Home on Monday 13 May 2013 by Tony J (Son of Resident)

Mother was very happy at Balfarg. I had seen a number of care homes prior to Balfarg and had not been inspired, though they were bigger and flashier. Balfarg is small enough to feel like home. Mother was happy there and the family were always happy to visit. If I have problems in later life I would be pleased to reside in Balfarg. It was always comfy but the standard of care since HC took over have improved tremendously.
