I cannot praise all the Staff at Kintullagh Nursing Home enough for the marvelous care that is being given to my Mother is now a permanent resident there. The friendly, warm & happy atmosphere within K.N.H put my Mother at ease immediately & she has settled in extremely well. All my Mothers needs are met to the highest standard & in her own words, 'all the staff are so lovely & she feels safe, well cared for & very feels very happy there with nothing ever being too much trouble for them.' She enjoys the variety of activities & has made new friends. I see a vast improvement in my Mother both mentally & physically since becoming a resident there & the fact that she is so happy & content at Kintullagh House gives me great peace of mind which is priceless!!!
