Barchester Ochil Care Home Recommended on carehome.co.uk

"I was at Ochil for a respite week in Sept 2018. The staff made me feel very welcome - I settled in easily. I was in a great room with good furnishings, including plenty of drawers of varying sizes plus a wardrobe and internal shelving - all very useful. Being a wheelchair user, using the sink in the bathroom was not really possible, so after a few days washing in a bowl at the table, I realised that I could be washing in the bathroom down the corridor. With this knowledge when I go back next time, I’ll know what suits me best. The location was very convenient for my visitors. I really enjoyed the activities I attended - because I had visitors, I couldn’t attend all the activities in the week. The food etc is excellent with lots of choices - more than I eat normally but smaller portions can be asked for. I was very happy at Ochil for the respite week and felt relaxed/de-stressed. After the week, I got home with Ochil’s transport which was very convenient and comfortable trip. Thank you."

"My family were very nervous about putting my dad in a home. We decided to attend Barchester Ochil Care Home open day. From the very beginning, we were made to feel very welcome and the home itself had a lovely homely feel to it. We knew right away that this is where we would like my dad to live as we could no longer care for his needs because of his dementia. The staff are amazing and very very helpful."

"My father recently moved from a Carehome outside of Perth to Ochil View in July. He had been there for more than ten years and moved since the death of his wife last December. I was concerned about how the move would affect my father who is very frail, has dementia and other long-term illnesses. I cannot praise the manager and her team highly enough. They made us feel very welcome, encouraged us to visit the Carehome, asked questions and provided genuine professional and caring support, fully answering all questions with openness and honesty. The transfer was very professional and focused on my father's comfort and assurance. It is not easy to get to know a person's individual needs but the team at Ochil take a personal interest in my father's care, well being and happiness. Recently, he had an infection and was taken into hospital but due to the caring of the staff in taking prompt and professional action, my father only had to spend a few days in hospital. Very pleased with Ochil."

"My father spent his final days and weeks in the care home. The level of care was excellent and the staff, from management o carers to nursing staff was superb. Nothing was too much trouble for them and everyone was greeted with a warm welcome. Highly recommended."

"My mother received excellent care from all the staff. The nurses were very caring and handled every situation concerning my mum's specific needs with kindness and professionalism. I was very impressed with how all the staff cared for my mum and were efficient, caring and supportive of the whole family. The home was well organised, clean and tidy and had a pleasant, relaxing atmosphere which was perfect for mum after a prolonged stay in hospital. We were able to art-furnish mum's room with her personal effects and she was comfortable in her surroundings and enjoyed the well thought out menu. As a family, we felt that every concern was listened to and acted upon positively. We were very impressed with how quickly and well the staff go to know my mum and enjoy her personality, that was something very important for her and for us. Sadly, my mum passed away and there was a real sense of caring amongst all of the staff. The home provides excellent value for money. Overall, my mum was treated with kindness, respect, dignity and professional care in the last stages of her life and for that, we cannot thank the staff enough."

"My father was made very welcome when he decided to leave his home and move into Ochil Care Home. He has settled well. He enjoys the daily activities available and enjoys the company. The activities vary but are stimulating. He has been well cared for and episodes of illness have been coped with well by the staff. Large areas of the home have been recently refurbished and are very pleasant."

"I find Ochil Care Home staff very friendly and always attentive to my brother's needs, they also keep me informed of how he is doing and keep in touch with me if he has been unwell. I couldn't ask for much more."

"A few months ago dad was moved to Ochil Care Home in Perth and the difference in him is simply outstanding! Dad is very comfortable here, there is a reciprocal adoration from the staff to him and back again. He is involved now in trips out, meeting new members of staff and other residents and other activities that help to entertain him. The staff are excellent here, selfless, thoughtful and complimentary to the residents. The decor is very pleasing to the eye, there are complimentary nibbles and drinks for visitors and reading material to hand. The gardens are well maintained and have a nice selection of blooming flowers and trees. I cannot truly comment on the food as I don't eat it but dad assures me there is a great selection and great, tasty quality."

"My husband has been looked after with great care in every detail - the staff are friendly, helpful and professional. They listen to any concerns I have which they always address very well. The management is friendly and approachable and has been very helpful over the past 18 months. For example, they have extended WiFi throughout the home and they have refurbished the main reception rooms, making the garden easily wheelchair accessible. The home is clean and fresh, and I would recommend to anyone who is looking for a good care home for their relative."

"In all the years my cousin has resided here, we have found the staff to be extremely caring, dedicated and very communicative to us. Her care is second to none. I can honestly say that this is the best care home my cousin has ever stayed in and she has stayed in a few. The staff are all stars and that includes the domestic staff too. They are all so obliging."

"When my mum was ready to go into a care home I went to view a few in Perth. My view was at the time Orchil was well sorted, now as my mum has been in Orchil she is so happy. It's well adapted to her needs and the staff are so helpful. It has a feel as if it is a big family and nothing is too much for the staff to help out. It's a good feeling knowing that my mum is in safe hands."

"After seven years, I am confident that my husband is getting the best care. The residents are treated with utmost respect and not looked upon as just a room number. The carers are kind and friendly and are usually heard happily chatting to him when attending to his needs. There is a TV lounge but Ochill has another three lounge areas, one opening out to the garden where my husband likes to be for family visits."

"During her respite care, Mum has been treated with care, humour and vigilance. The quality of reporting has been excellent and as relatives, we have been fully included and informed. Mum's care has been a life saver. Food is excellent and safety brilliant. It has been a privilege to have Mum cared for at Ochil, especially in this transition towards permanent care. Thank you sincerely."

"Our mum was upstairs in the Ochil for only a short time but would highly recommend this care home. The attention our mother received was second to none, staff very attentive to mum and given the best care we could have asked for. The meals were fab and plenty to drink and always fresh fruit and great home baking. Her room was great always clean and tidy. Her clothes were always immaculate and well dressed. She used to get her hair done regularly which she loved and the hairdresser was very good, mum always had a good hair do. All the nursing staff were terrific with us as well as mum, would not hear a bad word said about any of them, family atmosphere was always there. For all that they have done, we thank them lots and lots xx"

"My husband, who is in the special needs unit of Ochil Care Home, has continued to improve during the two and a half years since he arrived here. His care and attention has been exceptional and I believe has played a large part in his recovery. The staff are friendly, yet professional in their work, which gives me great confidence in this care home."

"I have two parents plus a father in law in the home. Overall, things are good. The staff are friendly and helpful. Sometimes I have to remind staff that my father in law can't get out of bed so his drinks need to be put in front of him. A few times, the cup/drink is left out of reach. This has been passed on. Downstairs in 'Memory Lane' - this unit works well with my mother. She seems very happy and staff will bring her upstairs to visit my dad."

Thank you and your staff for all the care and consideration that you gave over the years that she was in Memory Lane. Nothing was too much trouble and we always were given time to talk through any worries or concerns. It was always a pleasure to meet your staff inspite of the circumstances, as they were always cheerful and considertate of those around the them.
