The staff hold my mum’s hands at any time and make her feel safe and secure, they give me great feedback and they know my mother very well, she loves them, I can’t fault the staff.

Mrs. E.R, Relative of a resident, July 2019

I have always seen all staff take the time to listen to the residents, staff are very prompt and aware of the resident’s needs.

Relative of a resident, July 2019

Thank you for all that you did for mum since she moved to Murrayside. The team helped to get Mum settled and happy and feeling part of the family. I take great comfort knowing that she was so well cared for. All your efforts and hard work are very much appreciated by not just the residents, but all of their family and friends, who are so happy to see their loved ones safe and secure in a happy place.

Family of a resident, July 2019

We can’t thank you enough for the loving care you gave to [our relative] in his last few weeks. His smiles said it all!
