"The staff were friendly, welcoming and attentive, doing their utmost to make mum's fortnight comfortable and homely. Nothing seemed to be too much trouble. Rothsay Grange was clean, bright and airy (and well decorated for St George's Day and her Majesty the Queen's birthday). Mum's health improved well and she is now back at home living independently, however, she would happily return to Rothsay Grange if the need arises. Thank you to all."

"My husband spent nine nights at Rothsay Grange as a respite resident. I cannot speak too highly of all the staff. Before he went for his break we were visited at home and we were asked all about his likes and dislikes. When I took him he was obviously apprehensive but the staff were so warm and friendly. The food was excellent and if he wanted something outside of meal times he could ask. He has Parkinson’s and Lewy bodies dementia so doesn’t sleep much but the staff took it all in there stride. I wouldn’t hesitate to take him again. Obviously, it is a big decision choosing a Care home but Rothsay Grange from the moment you walk in makes you feel welcome, good food, no nasty smells, good activities, first class staff."

"My mum was due to go in for a week of respite 22/04/2018, on the 20/04/208 mum had a fall in her bedroom, she was taken to hospital with a cut and bruising to the left side of her head, after an x-ray and loads of tests she was told she had a water infection and was dehydrated, mum was given antibiotics and said she would need looking after for the next 48 hours. I made a call late in the afternoon to Rothsay Grange to ask them if mum could come in that evening? (2 days earlier than the booked time). They called me back within a few minutes to yes to bring mum in. Mum was there for 9 days and had excellent care in all aspects of her stay and is now looking forward to her next stay of respite. Thank you, Rothsay Grange."

"Mum was admitted for palliative care for the last few days of her life. These last few days of her life she was cared for and treated with dignity and respect."

"I was a resident of Rothsay Care Home for four weeks in January and February 2018. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay. The staff are well trained and take pleasure in looking after the residents. My wife and sons and other members of the family and friends who visited me on their numerous occasions could see I was enjoying being a resident at Rothsay Grange and well looked after."

"I am very impressed with the clean and roomy living area on Memory Lane. The staff in all areas, whether carers, kitchen, cleaning or nursing, are kind and respectful. The atmosphere on Memory Lane is peaceful but happy and the carers make every effort to keep clients as comfortable and engaged as possible. Thank you."

"An amazingly welcoming staff. So good to see my aunt happily ensconced in a cheerful private room where she is obviously being cared for by friendly professional staff. I was welcomed personally by reception staff and shown to my aunt's room, despite arriving at lunchtime (this didn't seem to be a problem) her lunch was appetising and delivered with care as were her drugs. A lovely environment."

"Good caring staff give me confidence that my mother is being looked after correctly. Food standard is disappointing. Cleanliness of cutlery and plates sometimes poor. I suppose the dishwasher is being overloaded."

"My father has vascular dementia and is now living at Rothsay Grange Care Home because my mother isn't strong enough to look after him 24 hours a day. He is receiving very good care and all the staff are very friendly and always telephone my mum id dad has been unwell or had to have a doctor visit. The facilities are very good and the rooms are clean and comfortable. I would recommend Rothsay Grange Care Home."

"My mother, who suffered from dementia, lived at Rothsay Grange Care Home for just over a year. It took her a while to get used to things and staffing early on was a bit unstable, but after a while, she settled in and under the expert, warm and sympathetic care she received - started to blossom! The stability of staffing steadily improved and this meant she was nearly always attended by carers and nurses who knew her well and were able to interpret the little signals she gave to convey her feelings and wishes. My sister and I were impressed by the culture of care. We also found that the food was good and the physical environment well cared for. There were activities, including Music Therapy, which my mother (even with her limited participation) was able to enjoy and she was always well-dressed and looked nice. She died peacefully at Rothsay Grange, having lived there for a year and two months, and the staff helped us as well as her through that final stage in a wonderful way. We are very grateful."

"We found that the people on reception and in the offices seemed a bit carefree about the people that were going to pay the respite bill. When we got to mum's room there was no T.V installed, (one was put in and working before we left) when we picked mum up at the end of her stay she said the T.V was inoperative for 2 days, she also said the food was not that good. We picked mum up on a Sunday and we noticed the carpets from the reception to the lifts were dirty (lots of bits on them)."

"My mother is in this care home. I only visit every month as I live 500 miles away but I have always been made welcome. The home is clean the staff work extremely hard and genuinely care for the patients physically and mentally. I would like to personally thank every member of this home for their tireless work. I would like to say of you are unable to care for your old people, please do not criticise those who are prepared to give their lives to do so. Thank you all carers at Rothsay."

"I have been a resident for just over a year. I am extremely pleased with the care I get. All the daytime staff are excellent. I was particularly appreciative of the way the care home facilitated my travel to my son's wedding."

Dear Anita and all the wonderful nurses and carers on the ground floor,

There really are no words that will thank you all so much for the kind and loving care you gave my mother in her last years.

She was very happy at Rothsay and enjoyed knowing you all. I know that she truly appreciated everything that you did for her - nursing, laundry, cleaning her room or just having a friendly chat - and so do all my family.

We will never be able to thank you enough. It is very hard when a family member has to give up their home, but that transition is made much easier when the care they receive is so good.

With love and thanks.

"My elderly godmother has resided at Rothsay Grange Care Home for two years. The care and support she has and continues to receive is excellent. I take great comfort in the knowledge that she is in a safe and comfortable environment and is surrounded by professional, competent, friendly and cheerful staff of all grades and ranks. Recently it has proved necessary to adapt my godmother's long term residency care plan to end of life care. The dedication and commitment of the nursing and care staff ensure they are consistently responsive to her end of life needs, enabling her to remaining time to be a positive experience. I am most grateful to all staff members encountered. Management, nurses, carers, catering and laundry staff."

"My wife is blind and has a brain tumour. After caring for her at home, a fall made it impossible for me to continue. Rothsay Grange staff are very caring and attending for all my wife's needs. They also liaise with our GP, McMillan and provide her with services as required. The place is welcoming, well maintained and the food is excellent. The home is also secure and after a problem with a CQC inspection, the admin have taken steps to rectify problems within the report."

"The Rothsay Grange is an excellent nursing home where my mother is very settled and happy. The care is very professional and the facilities clean, comfortable and modern. The atmosphere in the home is very friendly and caring and the attention given to the residents is outstanding. The staff are rightly proud of the home and make both residents and relatives feel that there needs are important to them. I have seen many nursing homes both professionally and as a relative and the Rothsay Grange is one of the very best."

"My mother is a fiercely independent woman and we were worried about how at 95 she would settle to care home life. Thanks to the amazing staff she is now settling well and feeling The Rothsay is her home. She is encouraged to still be as independent as possible whilst a close eye is kept on her health and welfare. We feel she is in a very safe caring environment."
