What our families say: Four Hills Care Home
"So far, excellent in all respects. My only request is for more reading material with the exception of football. Historical and detective fiction welcome."

"My mother has been in the care home for some time now, and while I was apprehensive at first as to how she would settle, I am very happy with how she has been looked after. She has had lots of attention, and when she was able, she always told me how great the food was. As her dementia has worsened, the level of care has increased, and although I haven't been able to see her for a while, I am more than happy and relaxed that she is in good hands."

"After four months in hospital with complex medical needs, and with a heavy heart, I had to arrange permanent residence for my husband in a care home which could provide the necessary full-time nursing as well as personal care to cope with his dementia, Type 1 diabetes and Vascular Parkinsonism. By sheer chance, I heard the name of Four Hills. Good impressions were created even from initial phone calls and, since his admission, he has been looked after with care, compassion, dedication and expertise by every single member of staff. And so have I. This is all the more appreciated and comforting due to the prohibition on and then all the restrictions still placed on care home visiting. With every day a roller coaster of emotions, experience has shown me that I can rely on Four Hills to do whatever they can to keep my husband safe, to act promptly in any emergency and to have his health and well-being at heart. And he loves the food."

"I cannot recommend Four Hills Care Home highly enough. My mum is extremely happy living there and the care she receives is excellent. During this difficult time of coronavirus, the staff in the lamb hill unit have been so good keeping us informed and skyping and making a dreadful situation bearable. I will forever be grateful to Four Hills for all they do for my mum. Thank you."

"This has been the best move ever for my mother. She is so happy and settled here and I’m happy in the knowledge that she is getting the best of care. She is looking better now than she has in years and I’m more relaxed knowing that I never need to worry about her as she’s in the best hands. The staff are exceptional. Everyone is treated with dignity and individually. Nothing is too much bother for the staff. They are friendly, helpful, very caring and have tons of patience. They have created a fabulous home from home environment where everyone’s needs can be met. The food is top class and they keep the residents busy with games, music, arts and crafts, movie days and other entertainment. Never a dull moment at Four Hills. Their handling of the Covid-19 outbreak has been exemplary. I have a weekly Skype call with my mother which is expertly facilitated by one of the activity staff. Wonderful service and much appreciated by myself and our family. I can’t recommend it enough."

"Our mother was only in Four Hills for a few days, following her discharge from hospital. She was very frail, following many years of Alzheimer's and more recently a stroke and sadly passed away shortly after her arrival. However, we were very happy with the quality of the care she received and could see that she was much happier, more relaxed and much more responsive while she was there. She was made very welcome and the staff put a lot of effort into getting to know her and making her feel at home. They cared for her lovingly, and could not have been kinder. We were very grateful for this, especially in her final hours and also for the support provided to ourselves at this time."

"Initially, we were apprehensive as any family would be, but this quickly changed and we just cannot thank the whole staff within Four Hills enough. The professional way and the care they gave throughout to my mother-in-law's time there was exceptional and always given with kindness, dignity and thoughtfulness. We will be forever grateful for making a difficult time so much better."
Laura Fcarehome.co.uk rating: 5 out of 5

"Four Hills Care Home was exactly the care my aunt needed in her final days. The staff did everything (and more) to treat, support and comfort her. After she passed, the staff made sure, I and my family were informed immediately, took care of every detail and continued to help with advice and arrangements."
Raymond Hcarehome.co.uk rating: 4 out of 5

"My aunt was initially admitted in August 2018 to the Firhill unit. She received excellent care from the team leader and his team, we also felt cared for and supported. The thought of a loved one moving into a residential care setting is daunting but in our case, with the help of the staff at Four Hills, the reality was so much better than we ever imagined. My aunt was so settled and content that we sought to make her temporary placement a permanent one. She was transferred to the Lambhill unit in October 2018. The team leader of this unit and her excellent team welcomed her warmly. Her room was lovely, warm and inviting and we enjoyed spending time with her there. The day rooms were a wee bit less fresh, although that didn't seem to bother my aunt. She thoroughly enjoyed the freshly prepared meals and weekly trips to the onsite hairdresser. Sadly, my aunt passed away in hospital in May 2019 after a short illness. We are so very thankful to the team leader and the Lambhill team and will never forget their care and commitment."

"Our family are very happy to have Mum in Four Hills Care Home. She has settled in very well and has made some new friends. She is well cared for and we have had constant contact with the staff, which is reassuring for us. We feel she has benefited from the care she has received in many ways and are pleased that she is there."

"From the minute you park your car (the gardener is always pleasant), the grounds are immaculate, to the friendly receptionist, always happy to have a chat with you. The Four Hills unit staff are simply amazing, warm, helpful, funny, the whole place is spotless (the cleaning never stops). I'm amazed at how the other staff in place even know my mum and always say hi when passing. Genuinely sad to be moving, I can't say a bad word about the place."

"Dad was a resident for 4 months and we as a family are so happy with the care he received, he was treated with dignity and respect by everyone and staff treated him more like family. When we as a family had to spend a week of overnight stays we were looked after just as well as the residents. Four Hills is a very happy place with lots going on for the residents, I would not hesitate in recommending it to anyone, thank you so much for caring for dad right to the end of his life."

"Palliative care. Would recommend highly the staff at Four Hills for their care, compassion, very attentive attention to their organisation values. We were made very welcome, nothing was ever a problem and they were always on hand to discuss matters or lend a caring and sympathetic ear. They were superb, very professional and made our journey and that of our mum's, peaceful and comfortable up to the end of her life."

"Since I have been a daily visitor to this home since March 2018, I have been welcomed at the desk when signing in, always with a smiling face, same with all nursing staff, carers and management. There is always a fresh smell when you enter and the rooms are always clean and well aired. There is always some kind of entertainment. All in all, I don't have any complaints. They are always ready to answer any questions I may have always ready to help."

All staff and management are approachable and always act professionally."

"My mum has been in Four Hills since January. Her health and general well being has improved greatly, she has company outside lots. Staff are fab and keep you up to date with things and are all so lovely. My mum is so happy there, always keep them occupied with stuff. Her room is nice and clean. I see a great improvement in her. I would highly recommend Four Hills."
Grace Ccarehome.co.uk rating: 5 out of 5
"Dad was in Four Hills for almost a month with a terminal illness. Staff worked to make him feel at home and were universally kind. The home was spotlessly clean, warm and well ventilated. Rooms are small, which made it difficult for staff using equipment such as wheelchairs, walkers and toilet equipment. Food was excellent with plenty of choices, served in various locations or residents’ rooms according to their preference. I was not aware of any activities but dad receives a thoughtful gift from Santa. Staff provided excellent care for dad as he deteriorated, protecting him from falls and ensuring he was as comfortable as possible. The carers were always upbeat with a sense of humour, ensuring his dignity was preserved and nothing was a bother. Nurses were open and responsive to my queries and concerns. It was tricky contacting the off-site doctor for permission to alter treatment. Staff ensured I was supplied with tea and meals while sitting with Dad. A well-run home."
Lynn Mcarehome.co.uk rating: 4.42 out of 5
"Mum received palliative care in the Firhill Unit from August 2017 until she passed away in November. During her stay, she was treated with nothing but love and kindness. At the slightest sign of any pain or discomfort, Mum was treated quickly and appropriately by the nursing team so that she was able to live out her final weeks in relative comfort. The care staff made sure that Mum was clean and comfortable and also paid attention to her medical needs in addition to their normal duties. All staff treated Mum as an individual, and their warmth and humour made things so much easier to bear. Many of them went ‘above and beyond’ what we would have expected. As a family, we could not have got through Mum’s final days and hours without the support of all the staff. They provided reassurance and comfort, brought us food, gave us hugs and sent us home for rest when we were on our knees. When Mum passed away, she was treated with such dignity - we couldn’t have asked for more."

"Four Hills is well administered as well as clean and tidy, both individual rooms and common areas. The home is well staffed and the staff are skilled in all relevant areas, very competent and take a friendly and individual interest in all the residents. Small events take place frequently and visitors are very welcome."
George Mcarehome.co.uk rating: 5 out of 5
"Dad's diabetes has been out of control for some months whilst in hospital. Four Hills nursing and care staff have made significant efforts to control his blood sugar by testing his blood up to six times a day adjusting his insulin as required and carefully receiving his food intake. He has other health problems which exacerbate diabetes and they have helped to manage and control his condition while dealing expertly and sympathetically with is other problems."

"My father was cared for in the Lambhill Unit by wonderful staff who not only looked after him but the whole family. Nothing was a bother and made us feel still very much part of his care. My dad loved the banter with the staff and had a wicked sense of humour which he maintained to the end. In the last few days of my dad's life the staff went about the business with compassion, care, understanding and were very unobtrusive when dealing with such a painful situation for family. Sadly I was unable to be there with my dad at the end, my sisters were, as I live in Australia but never in his time there did the staff make me feel I was a nuisance when I called. The care he received was second to none and I would have no hesitation in recommending Fourhills to anyone looking for a care facility for their loved one. The staff made us feel they treated the residents like their own family, sadly something not every care home does. Some areas looked tired but the care made up for that."
Sandra Ccarehome.co.uk rating: 4.75 out of 5
"Our aunt was transferred from Glasgow Royal Infirmary to Four Hills for palliative care and she was very worried about "going into a home". When we visited her on her first day we were very impressed with the ambience and overall condition, appearance and feeling of the home. We cannot overstate the level of personal care and attention ALL of the carers in Firhill section provided to us personally as relatives and visitors, and more importantly the care that our aunt received during her short stay at Four Hills. The knowledge that everyone at Four Hills eased the passing of our beloved aunt made our experience considerably less anxious and more bearable. MANY THANKS TO ALL MEMBERS OF THE FOUR HILLS TEAM."
