What others have to say

Here are just some of the comments we’ve received from family, friends and residents at Cathkin House care home.

My sister and I would like to commend the extraordinary effort shown by Christine who went above and beyond to arrange a special live streaming of a family wedding which mum couldn't attend due to Covid. The Cathkin staff are excellent, kind and loving in their care of mum. The high standard set by manager Nisha confirm that we made a wise choice in transferring mum here.

Relative of a resident, May 2021

The care home made us feel relieved that my Mother has been well looked after, which gave me peace of mind. The staff are very helpful and welcoming.

Relative of a resident, April 2021

Thanks for all your hard work – it is appreciated.

Relative of a resident, March 2021

We are all looking forward to resuming visits when completely safe to do so. It will give us a chance to put faces to the names of the excellent staff who we speak to on the phone and who have created a home from home for my mum. She regularly says they treat her like a queen. We will always be indebted to all the staff, they are a credit to their professions.

Relative of a resident, March 2021

When my mother was transferred to Cathkin House we were met at the door by Nisha the manager who could not have been more welcoming. The staff have been exceptional at keeping in touch by communicating on a regular basis. The staff have been exemplary in their care of Mum. I cannot commend Cathkin House enough for their care, commitment, communication and sense of duty.
