Care home experience was positive

I WAS saddened to read the report on Lauriston Christian Care Home.

My mother has been a resident in the home for seven years following a stroke which left her very incapacitated with little movement and needing everything done for her including feeding. At no time have I felt her at risk.

I visit the home most days (often at meal times) and have always found a welcoming atmosphere and staff willing and caring.

There is also an activity or entertainment arranged most weekdays for residents to enjoy. A lot of good things happen at Lauriston and I feel confident that management and staff will address the serious issues that have been raised and make the necessary improvements.
