"My friend has been at Balclutha Court for nearly three years. During that time my friend has been well cared for and is well settled into a good routine. The staff have a very good knowledge of my friend and understand the best way to work with her. The nursing staff are very good and the support staff are also very good. The receptionist is always very welcoming and a good front of house staff member. The manager and her staff are also very helpful. They are always very pleasant and take the time to chat and update me on how my friend is and I feel we have a good relationship. I can discuss any worries I have about my friend and they will work with me to resolve any issues. Although my friend does not participate in any of the activities, I regularly see what is available for the residents - not only activities in the home but trips out for meals or visits to attractions. I have no hesitation in recommending Balclutha Court - the staff make the place what it is."

"My experience in this home, to date, has been pleasant and heartwarming. The staff are really friendly and now feel like part of my family. Truly a home from home. I enjoy taking part in the various activities and find them both stimulating and amusing."

"My mum recently passed away in Balclutha CT. I have nothing but praise for the staff who looked after her during a very difficult time. From the helpful office staff to the attentive nursing and care staff, not to mention the behind the scenes catering and household. They made a very difficult time bearable and I would like to think pleasurable for my mum. Special mention to activities and all the arts and crafts and days out that they organised. Quite a home from home, everyone welcome including the dog!"

"My sister has been a resident at Balclutha Court for 7+ years. As her next of kin, I cannot praise management and staff enough for the care and assistance she receives within the home. Which gives me peace of mind knowing she is in a safe and friendly environment."

"I have found Balclutha to be a most comfortable, safe and friendly environment for my aunt. She is being very well cared for by every member of staff and has mentioned to me how everyone is so nice and helpful to her. I am kept informed at all times about my aunt's care and if I have any concerns I just have to ask. All the staff are friendly, approachable and caring."

"The best thing about Balclutha is the staff. They are all very caring people who have time for the residents. They always have a smile and a helping hand when needed. I don't worry about my mum when I'm not there as the staff are like family to her. Her face lights up with a smile when they pop into her room to check on her. I couldn't ask for better care for my mum."

"Balclutha Court is a warm, friendly care home. They take time to get to know their residents and their families. The home as a whole is spotlessly clean and there is always cleaning and maintenance staff somewhere in the background doing jobs that require attention. The staff are all friendly, caring and very patient, kind and courteous with not only Mum but all residents. It speaks for itself that the majority of staff have been employed long term. I cannot fault any aspect of Mums care. As I say every time I go to visit Mum she is happy, clean, clean clothes and well fed. The residents are also kept well motivated and entertained by the numerous activities and outings the staff organise. The staff keep us up to date continuously with any changes in Mums health and well-being or treatments being administered. Overall I would recommend anyone looking for a care home definitely give Balclutha a try."

"My parents came into the care home together and staff rearranged rooms so that they could be next door to one another. Both rooms were repainted and recarpeted when they moved in. Staff are invariably jolly and caring and gave my mother a good quality of life for at least six months before her health deteriorated. They cared for her tenderly in her last few months until her passing in March and since then, have worked hard at jollying my father along. I am touched that they also ask after my welfare when I come to visit."

"My mother in law lived in Balclutha Court for 2 years. Balclutha Court is a fantastic home. The staff are all so approachable and friendly and are great with the residents - the manager is great and has been there for many years which is so reassuring and would help you with anything. My wife does not keep that well and was unable to visit her Mum very often yet she had total peace of mind knowing that she was so well cared for. I would thoroughly recommend Balclutha Court to anyone who is looking for a place for their relative."

"Mum has been resident in Balclutha Court for nearly 3 years. Mum's care provision is excellent, staff are caring, professional and myself and my family know that mum is happy and settled at Balclutha Court. Family/friends are always made to feel welcome when visiting Balclutha Court. Activities are well organised and it is wonderful to witness everyone having fun, joining in sing a longs, dancing and generally having fun. Thanks to all at Balclutha Court for looking after mum."

"We cannot praise the staff highly enough, not just for looking after mum but my wife and I (not forgetting our little Bichon dog) We never expected to get to know the staff, they were all like family. We cannot fault anything or anyone. If anyone is thinking of having your loved one in Balclutha do not hesitate, they will be well cared for."

"The care, love and friendship my gran received in Balclutha Court was second to none. All aspects of care, from personal hygiene to assistance with attending hospital appointments and diet were delivered to the highest standard. My gran's room was beautiful and every member of staff took time to get to know her and really cared. The staff were so patient with my gran and the rest of our family. The care and support my gran received at the end of her life was so meaningful and heartfelt. The staff supported us so much through one of the most difficult times for us. The home manager, administration staff and all others made sure my gran and us as a family were comforted and supported. I have no hesitation in leaving this review for such a wonderful care home and team of staff. They really do treat their residents as family."

"My Mum stayed at Balclutha Court for just under two years. She was very happy there and very well looked after, she felt completely at home. The staff are all so friendly and helpful to the residents and visitors and myself and other members of the family were so content knowing that Mum was so happy and well cared for there. She used to go on the outings regularly when she was able and thoroughly enjoyed them. I would recommend Balclutha Court to anyone looking for care for a relative as it is just incomparable in my eyes."

"I have lived at Balclutha Court for seven years now and it is a great place to live. The staff are all really caring and look after you well, they take care of your every need. You can also go to the Manager and office staff about anything. The staff have also really supported me in staying independent - I attend a Tai Chi class every Monday. I would strongly recommend Balclutha Court to anyone who is needing care - it is a lovely place to live."

"My Gran moved into Balclutha Court on 30 April 2015. It was obvious very quickly that she had settled and the staff had gotten to know her really well. Myself and the rest of my family all had great peace of mind knowing that my Gran was so well looked after. The staff at Balclutha Court were all wonderful with her and got to know all her 'wee ways'. The Home is such a warm, friendly place and the staff and residents are all like family. The staff were always making extra cups of tea and snacks for her as she didn't always eat her lunch or evening meal. Sadly, my gran passed away in March this year and the staff were so attentive, caring and supportive which really helped us all through a difficult time. I would not hesitate to recommend Balclutha Court to anyone looking for somewhere for their loved ones."

"My sister-in-law has been a resident for just over a year and came from Aberdeen where she was born and bread. She has found it difficult to fit in but is well looked after and encouraged by the staff who all work very hard to cope with all levels of care. The rooms are comfortable and well furnished with some of the residents own bits and pieces allowed, carpets, curtains and bed linen all match, chairs are comfortable and everyone is encouraged to join in the activities which are all excellent. The management and staff are all helpful and I'm kept up to date with any problem that arises. The staff are caring and work hard to keep up standards. It's lovely welcoming home and I applaud all."

"My mother-in-law has been a resident at Balclutha Court for the last 4 1/2 years. During this time we have been extremely happy with the care & devotion shown to her since the unfortunate onset of vascular dementia. She is now completely bed bound and needs constant care with all her daily needs. At no time have we ever had concerns over her general or medical care, as the staff are very well trained and informative on both her general care and medical condition. We are encouraged to visit her at any time, day or night and there is always a trained member of staff present to allay any fears. Management are very approachable, compassionate and helpful with any questions we have. This attitude is very well reflected throughout the staff. We have no hesitation in highly recommending this establishment."

"My mum has been in Balclutha since March 2016. She settled in well, on her first day we were introduced to her named nurse and care/support worker. On arrival we were shown to her room and offered a cup of tea, the care staff then labelled all her clothes so that they didn't get lost or mixed up with others. The manager of the home came to visit mum at home to find out small but important things about her likes and dislikes. Since being in Balclutha my mum has been well cared for and really enjoys the weekly singing groups they bring in. When visiting staff are always available to answer any questions and a cup of tea is always on offer. I am updated on a regular basis about how my mum is doing, this gives me confidence about mums care at the home."
