Review of Greyfriars Care Centre on Wednesday 12 March 2014 by Ursula Murray (My aged mother of 88 resides at Greyfriars)

For many years my mother has been residing at Greyfriars Care Home and I can honestly say she is thriving and flourishing as a direct result if the tremendous care and attention she is given. The staff under the direction of Yvonne are dedicated, flexible are patient. I personally live overseas so it is even more important that I know my mum is supported well. My mum has had some challenges in life and at times can be cranky but this is never a problem to the team at Greyfriars and their handling if sensitive and private issues is exemplary eg. My son's adopted son who reconnected with us. My mother in law often liaises with the team on my behalf and is always commenting on how helpful and professional they are nothing is too much trouble. Recently her son requested that mum consider moving to be nearer him and mum was adamant that she adores Greyfriars and under no circumstances she would relocate which is testament to the amazing care they provide. I personally rely on them and they are outstanding to my mother and all the other residents. I hope when I am old I can live in such a lovely setting. Thank you for caring and supporting our mum.

Review of Greyfriars Care Centre on Thursday 20 February 2014 by JDawson (Grandaughter of Past Resident)

The staff of Greyfriars Care Home are compassionate, supportive and treat every resident under their care with dignity. Whilst my grandmother was a resident in the centre, myself and my family were always made to feel welcome. Care was made to cater for individual concerns such as dietary requirements. In particular, the support of all of Greyfriars' staff allowed my grandmother to be as comfortable as possible during the last part of her life.

Review of Greyfriars Care Centre on Thursday 26 September 2013 by MMc (Visitor)

Greyfriars care home has a very friendly atmosphere and welcoming staff. The manager goes out her way to actively take part and spend time with her residents and their families and welcomes all community friends old and new. The manager will also give up time to take part in activities such as outings, events in the local community. The level of care the staff provide is to a high standard. The home is very clean and pleasantly decorated and the menu offered to the residents is of a high standard and home baking is exceptional. I would be happy to recommend this home to people looking for a home and care for their elderly loved one and would say this home is one of the best I have visited.
