Review of Castle View Care Home on Thursday 5 June 2014 by James M (Relative)

I think the care my mum receives is very good and most staff are friendly however I never see any of the management team whereas staff here they were friendly and visible and the girl chatted away to me and my family and the man who I believe is her manager.

Review of Castle View Care Home on Monday 3 March 2014 by Liz J (Relative of resident)

In the past eighteen months the home has been brilliant and it's not just the staff that are good, the manager is fantastic and works all hours and is a hundred per cent for the home and staff and is very approachable. Since receiving care my mum has been a different woman, I would recommend this home to anyone and everyone.

I have seen a massive improvement in my mum since moving to the home. She has dementia and goes into Namaste Room which is for people with dementia, and she has been eating and drinking more. Everyone is very helpful and friendly.

I feel over the past year the home has much improved and the staff and residents are happier and I think this is partly due to new company and present manager.

Review of Castle View Care Home on Tuesday 5 February 2013 by Wilma Gilmour (Sister of Resident)

Best Care/Nursing Home in the area. Looked at the other homes in this area and was not overly impressed. When we went into Castle view I was impressed with the general cleanliness, fresh smell, large wide corridors and several large lounges. Staff are also very friendly and helpful.
