My sister in law has been here for 6 weeks now and we have seen a big improvement in her condition. The staff always give us, the visitors, a warm welcome when we visit. I am sure her stay will get better as the time goes and that makes the family feel better as well.

Was not keen to go to a home for respite in the first place but I am delighted that I have as my fears were unfounded. Room is bright and airy with beautiful views. The staff are very caring, friendly and respectable, nothing is too much trouble. The lounge is large and inviting and all residents are treated as individuals. The mealtimes are a pleasure and excellent choice, variety and quality. 100% recommendation to anyone in similar circumstances for a short or long stay.

My mother entered Pitmurchie for respite care at short notice. I found the manager and staff very friendly and welcoming. they were clearly keen to make my mother's stay as homely and enjoyable as possible. During visits I can see that the staff are very caring and they know each resident very well. My mother is extremely deaf but the staff seemed able to manage her disability. The staff are very obliging. Visiting times are flexible and there is no problem taking residents out on trips, even altering her hair appointment to facilitate this. My mother enjoys the food and she has looked very well ever since residing at Pitmurchie. Overall we are very satisfied with Pitmurchie House.

My mum was in Pitmurchie Care home for nearly a month before she sadly passed away on 15th January 2015. My mum Rosabel Malcolm was given the very best care by all members of staff at Pitmurchie they were all very caring and comforting to mum and us as a family. I would recommend Pitmurchie to anyone looking for care of any type for a relative or friend.
