What our families say: Highview House Care Home
"My mother has been at Highview for 9 years and she is happy there and well cared for. There have been several changes in management in that time (which have varied in success) but now management and refurbishments are positive. We pay privately and find the annual fee increase difficult to deal with, however, we think Highview staff are excellent and are kind to mum."

"It takes us 6 hours by car to visit out terminally ill sister. We have found all staff friendly and helpful to us and our sister seems well cared for in different circumstances. Their friendliness and patience is excellent."

Dear Norma and all staff members,
My husband, all my children and I would very much like to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your extraordinary kindness, compassion and understanding throughout Dad's stay with you. Your excellent nursing care has been greatly appreciated by us.
I would like to thank you all individually, because I saw for myself the evidence of your outstanding work and infinite patience, but since this is not possible, I can only express our gratitude in this note.
I've no doubt you'll miss my darling Dad. I know of no one in my entire life who ever disliked him; he was an exceptional human being. The world is a much better place for many, many people because of him.
We wish all of you the very best for the future.
An Ode to Ronnie and Many Thanks to You All
Thanks for your love and care for Ronnie,
and for the hugs and kisses from all the lassies, Bonnie.
He always had a story to impart,
an old bodach with a very good heart.
A glint in his eyes until the end,
On his sense of humour, you could always depend.
Two bowls of cornflakes kept him going.
Whether it was raining, hailing or snowing,
A feast of chocolate and a Sultana Slice
Always went down well and he thought it was nice.
When told he could be diabetic in ten years,
He dissolved with laughter and said he had no fears.
As a respected doctor in Craig Dunain,
It was agreed: not only the patients were insane.
Like the psychiatrist that his wife was a bit potty,
He didn't keep Mum under the bed 'cos he thought her a little potty.
Our gratitude and best wishes go to you all,
And may your stresses be manageable and small.
Empathy, professionalism and genuine caring
Are all good qualities required for sharing
With all around you, wherever you are,
That way, you'll always be a star.
