I like being in the home and feel I have met many friends here. I like my food and feel that is tastes good. I enjoy going to my room to watch my television when I want to be on my own. I enjoy walking and I am active but afraid in case I fall.

I feel as if I have lost my independence as I cannot do the things I want to do for example I am not allowed to walk with my zimmer unless someone comes with me in case I fall. I do enjoy doing activities as it breaks up my day and saves me from getting fed up. I feel that the meat could be cooked better and longer.

I continue to enjoy my own company within my own bedroom. I am more than capable of informing the staff members if I require any support/help. Or if I am feeling sad or low in my mood I know I can turn to the staff for help or for them just to listen to me and be there for me. I enjoy when my family comes to visit me or gives me a telephone call. I am happy and settled in Braemount care home and have no issues.

Braemount Care Home, Bupa Care Homes at Braemount Care Home responded to this review on 07 Aug 2015:

Thank you for your review. Your comments are extremely important to us and our residents’ health and wellbeing is our absolute priority. We will discuss your feedback with the home’s manager to help them continually improve their service.

We feel safe and comfortable in here. My washing is done for me and I don't have to do the dishes. The food is variable and can be better. Change of cakes with tea. Lots of cream and strawberries. The Activities Coordinator is excellent at keeping us entertained. We would like fish and chips from the chip shop.

Both of my parents are resident in Espadair House, Braemount - my mother for 16 months and my father for the last 2 months. My mother has been very well looked after by the staff and, therefore, it was the obvious place for my father as well. He went in for respite care but, as his health has deteriorated, he will probably remain full-time. The staff are all very pleasant and helpful and the food always looks good (I have not yet tasted it!).

I seek that the standard of service overall is excellent and the staff carry out their work to a high professional standard. However I concede that the staffing levels could be increased to allow the resident's toilets needs to be attended to more quickly (for example at meal times.)
