Mum was always very happy at Dounemount and always appreciated the care you gave her with such good humour.
It brought me comfort to see that she had many occasions when she had fun, laughter and enjoyed life.
I just wanted to thank you and your staff team for the care and attention given to John in the short time he spent at Dounemount, we very much appreciate this.
The staff at Dounemount were always friendly and helpful. I know that she enjoyed her stay whilst she was able to be up. I was impressed with the standard of nursing care once she became unable to get up.

What better excuse is there to dress up, do funny sports and enjoy a nice bit of cake, all for a good cause of course.
This was exactly what residents, relatives and the care team at Dounemount Care Home in Macduff did.
Kay Robertson, Home Manager, said: “Everyone had a lot of fun on Red Nose Day. We all dressed up with our red noses, enjoyed cakes and home bakes, and ran the calories off doing various sports as part of a sports day run by our very own Personal Activities Leader Angela Walker. There were smiles galore as everyone enjoyed themselves, and what’s more we raised a bit of cash for a worthy cause.”
