“Thank you for looking after my husband last week. I was able to recharge my batteries and know Bob was being well looked after. He said to me in the care on the way home – “well, if you ever want to do that again, it’s alright by me!” Well done to you all.” Relative

“Just a short note to thank you all for the care and help you gave my mum during her stay with you. She was very happy at the home and liked all the staff involved in her care. Being at St Fillans made her happy.” Relative

“Thank you so much for letting me stay at St. Fillans. The staff were very caring and everywhere very clean and food was good.”

“Just a few words to thank all of you for the great care and affection you gave my wife during her recent stay with you” Relative.

“This is just to say a “big thank you” for the care, compassion and respect you gave to my late husband in his last remaining days.  We can’t praise your home enough, you all deserve all the thanks you get; a bunch of wonderful staff” Relative.

“Thank you very much for all the care you gave my mother, especially over her period of illness.  Also, thank you for the help and support you gave to us and our family.  I will miss you all as I really felt like part of the team” Relative.

“In his 99th year my father was confined to his bed for the last 7 weeks, and we could not have wished for a better place for him to be.  The priority was his comfort, dignity and constant love and attention from the nursing staff.  We are grateful for the very high standard provided by St Fillans and Excelcare in allowing him to depart from his life with the respect and dignity he deserved” Relative.

“We would just like to say a big thank you for all you have done for our relative.  You gave him tender loving care in his last few weeks, for which we will always be grateful.  All staff have been wonderful” Relative.

“To all the staff at St. Fillans thank you for looking after our mum the way you do” Relative
