Testimonials
"Firstly I want to thank you all for your time and the respect you gave me last week when I was visiting Dunblane. It is very much appreciated and I feel so grateful for the care and concern you have for my dear mother. Once again I reiterate that we are all so thankful to the staff of Dunblane for the way you look after our Mum and I am overwhelmed at the love and compassion she receives from her carers. I can not thank you enough.” - Family of Dunblane Hospital Resident

'Dunblane is very family oriented, everyone seems to care for everyone else. The best thing was that I was able to have my cat, who has settled in well and is now spoilt by everyone. The rooms are nicely appointed, and I have an exceptionally nice room. My family is very pleased I've settled in so well.' - Mary Webb, Dunblane Hospital Resident
