My mum, who has advanced dementia, was admitted here from A&E at the Western, having developed double pneumonia as a result of aspirating her food.
The first two weeks or so were spent in a single room, after which she was moved to a four-bedded room for about another four weeks. I cannot commend the staff highly enough in this facility.
Every single member of the team I came across treated us with kindness, compassion, efficiency and respect. As a result of the high standard of care, my mum recovered from the pneumonia, despite having been told by the consultants that we should 'prepare for the worst'.
She was discharged to Drumchapel Hospital, where she spent two weeks, after which she was again moved to St Margaret's Hospice in Clydebank, where she is currently.
