Review of Forth Bay Nursing Home

My youngest brother was resident in the home for 4 years until his death early in December 2013. The care, kindness and support he was given could not have been better. He was not always easy to deal with but at no time did I ever find anything but extreme understanding from ALL staff - H Stocks unit. I was only able to visit him monthly but I never left for my 120 mile journey home without thinking he was receiving the best of care. My remaining brother and his family join me and mine in expressing our gratitude to you all. Five star care from one who was involved until retirement in the care sector.

Review of Forth Bay Nursing Home

It was my mum's first care home after coming out of hospital. It was a temporary stay. My mum stayed at Forth Bay from 10th January to 19th February. The staff were very good. It was a well run home. It allayed my fears of my mum going into care due to bad stories in the press about cases of neglect in some care homes.

Review of Forth Bay Nursing Home

Unfortunately mum only had three weeks in Fourth Bay before passing away but she was happy there and made to feel like she belonged. All the staff are kind, caring and considerate not only to residents but to family as well, we only had positive comments from any of the friends and family who visited no matter what time of day they visited and all felt welcomed. We felt this home provided a clean, caring and safe place for the residents.

Review of Forth Bay Nursing Home

My elderly cousins were only in Forth Bay for a short time with his sister but he couldn't have have been better looked after. His sister was cared for by dedicated staff for more than two years and I would have no hesitation in recommending the care home and staff for their kindness and professionalism in dealing with any relatives.

Review of Forth Bay Nursing Home

Mum has been a resident here for almost 4 years. I reside out of the country so it is important that I know mum is well cared for. She is well taken care of at Forth Bay, I do not have to worry that her needs are met when I am not here. I keep in touch with the home (and they with me when needed). Mum is not really active now as she has had a stroke but she did participate in activities prior to that, day trips, entertainment, etc. All of the staff are very caring. It is important that my mum is taken care of but more important is that the staff care and at Forth Bay they do.

My Mother in law was in hospital for four months and at times very ill. On the day of transferral to the home which was late in the evening my mother was treated with warmth, patience and dignity which was witnessed by my brother in law. This has continued she is well looked after. This allows the family to relax knowing that each day and night she is safe and cared for by people who care.

Review of Forth Bay Nursing Home

My Mum resided here for 5 weeks on an interim placement. She was very happy here, but had wanted to return to her home town. Whenever we visited, we could see how caring the staff were and how friendly they were. They were more than happy to answer any of my (many!) questions. Mum's room was large, the communal areas were of a good size. It just had a 'homely' feel to it, and Mum was treated with respect. It's the staff who make it..... !
