"Mearnskirk House (Millbrae Ward)"

About: Mearnskirk House

(as a relative),

My Mum has been in Millbrae since February this year, as a family we were really unsure about our Mum going into care, we tried to keep her at home as long as we could. Sadly she became unwell and was admitted to hospital for a long stay, it was then that we were advised that she go into Mearnskirk, with sleepless nights and lots of tears, we had to put our own feelings behind us and think of our Mum, thus deciding she go to Mearnskirk. It's a decision that wasn't made lightly, but was the best decision for her, we cannot fault the staff or the environment, it has a warm welcoming entrance with lovely flowers, the place is immaculately clean, we are made welcome by all the staff, and they are always happy to give us updates on our Mum. As a family we can't thank the staff enough, the care they give her is second to none, which gives us massive peace of mind. So once again, thank you so much for everything you are doing, you are some team, keep up the good work! ! !
