What our families say: Highview House Care Home

B Mcarehome.co.uk rating: 4.58 out of 5

"I have always found the staff at Barchester Highview House friendly, warm, kind, helpful, fun and caring. I can rest in the knowledge that Mum is safe and secure. And that she is cared for by compassionate people. Visiting Highview is a pleasurable experience."

"My mother entered Highview House in August 2020 and due to Covid for most of that time access was very limited. Things are better now with 2 family member visits per week. There doesn't seem to be many activities organised at present and my mother spends most of the time in her room. The reasons for agreeing with social services for my mother to go into care was for safety, security and stimulation. Safety and security are fine but there is a lack of stimulation. Most of the staff are good but there are one or two who like to be in the office."

"I visited six care homes. As soon as I walked into memory lane I could not explain to myself just what I was feeling a few days later the feeling was like a blanket of love surrounding me. The staff are beyond belief and have accepted me. I am so so pleased that I chose Highview it is very difficult to choose somewhere for the one you love so much. I certainly made the correct choice."

"My sister has resided at Highview House Care Home for eleven months now. Her care has been exemplary. The staff are efficient, caring and go above and beyond their duty of care to serve the individual needs of the residents. We have no complaints whatsoever and are thankful that we were able to place my sister in such a wonderful environment. Finding a suitable home for a loved one is always a responsibility and Highview House ticks every box!"

"Feel very reassured that my dad has been looked after so well during this difficult time. Window visits are a great idea. All staff and carers in Memory Lane are fantastic, keeping in touch with us when unable to visit. Cannot thank everyone enough for their care and affection."

"I can't thank the staff enough for the care given to my mum this year. They have been amazing in every way. They have kept me updated on how she has been and now I can visit her every week I can see for myself how well cared for she has been. Good job guys!"

"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."

Juliet Rcarehome.co.uk rating: 4.17 out of 5

"A very safe happy environment, excellent staff with a very caring attitude. Home has had a full refurbishment where staff worked through with little disruption to the residents. Good food choice, daily menu, prepare in home."

"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."

"My Mother was in the care of Highview for almost 2 years and I have to say that the nursing care was superb and the personal care increasingly good."

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.
