Staff appear to be genuinely fond of Dad…
Staff accompanying my Dad to a medical appointment in Edinburgh couldn’t have been nicer with him. He was cheerful and sociable throughout, glad to meet up with family members – it was like a jolly outing for him!
But this has been our experience of Aaron House – staff appear to be genuinely fond of Dad, he seems to have been well entertained throughout the Covid years and appears to be happy. The care home always strikes me as a lively place with staff organising activities, not leaving residents to sit and fester. Since going into Aaron (initially with my Mum who has since passed away) he has gained weight (they seem to feed him well!) and is no longer the gaunt, isolated figure he used to be when he and Mum were struggling to go on living at home.
My brother and I are very grateful for the enthusiastic care Aaron House has shown for our Dad (and previously for Mum) since he moved in three years ago.
