My Dad looks forward to going to Birdstone Daycare every week, the staff are very cheerful and appear to really enjoy their jobs, the meals are great too, especially the fish and chips. The staff go out their way to be helpful. My dad doesn't tell me much but I can tell when he is happy and he is happy at Birdstone.

How can I comment on something that is as near to perfection as you can get. (see all boxes ticked apart from one which was marked 'good').
The standard of the meals must receive mention - they are prepared to a very high and served standard with each client requirements attended to without question.

My mother looks forward to her visits to Birdston Day Care. Every single member of staff is friendly and helpful. Their kind and enthusiastic approach encourages my mother to join in the many excellent and varied activities during the day.
The centre itself is always warm with a cosy cheerful atmosphere. There is a high standard of cleanliness and the meals are well suited to elderly people.
I can relax when my mother is in Birdston Day Care as I know I am leaving her in safe caring hands.

I feel that Birdston provide an excellent day care service. My mother uses this service twice each week and she looks forward to meeting up with ladies that she has met there. I have found the staff to be very pleasant and helpful. The 2 days that my mum attends allows me a break as well due to my mum finding it increasingly difficult to be on her own as she gets older.

I am completely happy with services at Birdston Day Care. Although mum can't really tell us herself what she'd done and how she is treated., she always goes happily, which I guess means she is happy there.
All the staff, both clerical and medical, are excellent and nothing is ever a problem to them. They always take care of mum. I get regular updates on her care. I only wish the service was freely available to all those who live alone and need it.

Birdston Day Care is an extremely enjoyable place to come to for care and support. Clients have the opportunity to mix with other people and there is plenty of daily activities they can take part in both in the morning and afternoon. Occasional day trips are organised from the day centre and clients are accompanied by two or three carers depending on numbers. The centre also has two voluntary workers who assist the seniors and the other care staff with the different aspects of support offered to attend clients. The centre manager and two seniors are always on duty to help any concerns.

Ever since my mother started to attend 'Birdston Day Care' she has done nothing but praise the time she spends there. The quality of the service provided is excellent. From the staff to the facilities, the activities and catering are remarkable. I live in Fife and I am pleased that my mum has a great time and the conversations I have after my mum has been to the centre is very interesting for me. We increased her days from 1/week to 3/week and I am so glad we did. I attended the recent Christmas lunch and I had a great time. Seeing first hand the care and attention everyone received was truly remarkable. Thanks.

I have visited the daycare unit several times and witnessed at first hand the care and dedication afforded to clients.
The daycare centre offers a safe, warm, friendly and secure facility and environment for service users.
My adopted brother volunteers at the daycare centre and he is a valued member of the team and loved by all the clients.
The clients benefit from the various activities on offer. The company aid interaction with other service users. They often have days out and everyone is cared for to an exceptional standard.

My grandad has recently started at Birdston and I cannot praise the staff and centre enough. It has been fabulous! The staff have made such an effort to settle my grandad and as a family have reassured us so much. I am delighted my grandad has a place here as he is already really enjoying it, especially the food. We have already added on a second day. The playlist idea is great and makes settling so much easier, hearing familiar songs definitely boosts the moral.

My Dad attends a few days per week and enjoys his time there. Staff are friendly and helpful and keep me up to date with how my dad has been with his eating, drinking and how he has interacted and enjoyed his day. This allows myself and my husband to have some me time with the knowledge that Dad is safe and well looked after and that gives me complete reassurance.

My father has attended Birdston for a couple of years now. He enjoys going and always speaks warmly of his experience.
My dealings with the team at Birdston are always professional, helpful and friendly. I am confident that the care at Birdston has played an important part in my father being able to continue living in his own home over this period.

I have already recommended the centre to a friend. I appreciate the collect and drop off service and the friendly attitudes of the staff. My husband always enjoys his lunch but unfortunately isn't able to participate in many of the activities. However, he particularly enjoys days out and would appreciate more of these.

This provider is very helpful and understanding. My mother has Parkinsons and Parkinsons Dementia. She likes going to this daycare centre two days a week as it is getting her out into an environment with other people so overall it's very important to us in giving more balance and social benefits to my mums week and life. There are sometimes my mother can be very tired in the mornings due to her conditions and the centre has been understanding when I take my mother there a few hours later or if she is too tired sometimes which we appreciate a lot as it's accepting her individual circumstances which are potentially challenging. When she goes there it is giving her a better quality of life and I have found the people who work there to be very tolerant and understanding regarding my mum and very helpful. Therefore this is overall a very positive experience for my mum despite her conditions.

We have used Birdston now for about 5 years. I have always been pleased with how my husband has been treated and cared for. It gives me great peace of mind to know that he is being well looked after.The staff are friendly and kind and I would like to think they are my friends too. There is a great manager and it seems to be a good, happy place for everyone. Things are changing for my husband, but he is always treated with dignity and care. Thank you, everyone, for looking after him.

My mother thoroughly enjoys her days at Birdston Day Care. This is a lifeline to the outside world for her and without it, her life would be misery. I have found the staff at Birdston Day Care on all occasions to be very friendly and diligent in the discharge of their duties. The activities provided, such as the day trips and the Christmas party are always well organised, and once again I can say my mother loves her time there. She has also made some good friends. Well done Birdston.

My 92-year-old dad has been attending Birdston Day Care Centre now for about 18 months following the death of my mum. Dad looks forward to his day and always tells us of the activities whilst there, from communal games to visiting entertainers - the latter usually prompting a 'wee drink' from the bar. He enjoys the quizzes especially and can always tell me what the content is. He enjoys the singalongs as he and mum were keen dancers and often listened to music together and he's embarrassed about how many times he's won the bingo! He thoroughly enjoys the lunch and cakes however his main complement is always for the staff, from the moment he is collected and helped on to the bus, till the moment he is delivered home and settled into his armchair - he feels that all of the staff are extremely caring and helpful - 'can't do enough for me'. His one-day visit to Birdston is the highlight of his week and a day when I don't worry about him sitting at home feeling lonely.

My mother attends one day a week and it is a lifeline for both of us. My mother meets new friends and takes part in the activities provided, it keeps her mind sharp and she is picked up in the morning and returned home late afternoon. She looks forward to attending.
Whilst my mother is at the centre it gives me the opportunity to have time to myself, meet friends or arrange appointments as required. I highly recommend Birdston Day Care and the staff are really friendly and professional.
