Blar Buidhe is a very comfortable home, with good food and the staff do well. I have been here about 8 months and have no worries. I get taken out in the minibus and sometimes the staff come in on their day off to take me out.

Blar Buidhe Care Home

I find the home and staff very nice. The only negative is lack of activities to stimulate my mother. I would like to request more activities for residents instead of just sitting in chairs. Residents now eat at tables instead of the food being given out on trays, which is a big difference for the better.
