Review of Douglas View Care Home on Tuesday 20 May 2014 by Graeme Walsh (Son of Resident)

I've found all staff to be caring and friendly towards my mum and our family. My mum has settled very well an has now been resident for 8 months. Of particular benefit to mum has been Rosemary the activity co-ordinator as mum has always preferred being occupied. There are a great number of activities of different varieties that residents choose to opt in or out of, including trips in the mini bus. The room is spacious and there is an ongoing programme of re-decoration couldn't be happier with overall standard of care.

Review of Douglas View Care Home on Friday 16 August 2013 by Elizabeth Anderson (Niece of past resident)

My aunt had dementia and was looked after in Douglas View for over 2 years. I looked at several local Care Homes but Douglas View was recommended by several reliable former patients' families. I made the right choice. My aunt was given excellent care from all members of staff. Dignity was at the forefront during a distressing and often difficult illness. Before my aunt's condition deteriorated she took part in the many activities which was wonderful to witness. She also began to eat properly as the food and choices are very good and she thrived under the care she was given. There is a rolling refurbishment and rooms are spotless and well decorated. I have nothing but praise for Douglas View.

Review of Douglas View Care Home on Monday 25 March 2013 by Sybil Walsh (Sister of resident)

I have looked after my sister for 16 years, I am now in my 70's and can not do it anymore. The management and staff at Douglas View have supported myself and my family way beyond the call of duty. I feel my sister is very well cared for. The home is very comfortable and I feel very much at home when visiting my sister. My sister has Downs and has developed Alzheimer's. The activities are the best that I have seen. I would recommend Douglas View to anyone looking for a place for their loved ones.

Review of Douglas View Care Home on Thursday 7 March 2013 by Helen Ata (Daughter of resident)

I would like to pass on my thanks and gratitude to the management and staff at Douglas View. In particular to Gwenith and Almada staff. I looked at many care homes prior to my dad becoming a resident. He liked good surroundings and quality of service. Douglas View exceeded this. Great personal care, staff first class, always smiling and helpful. My dad, who was a retired GP sadly passed away recently, but I'm so pleased he started to call Douglas View his home. Very well done Douglas View. I'll recommend this home to my friends.

Overall, myself and family are delighted with our choice of care home for our elderly and frail mother. We know she is safe, well looked after and involved in all the various activities within Douglas View.
