Life at Alma McFadyen Care Centre
Situated at the heart of the town centre of Dalbeattie, Alma McFadyen is a residential care home with a long history of providing services to older people in the town and the surrounding areas.
Originally the home and surgery of the town’s GP Alma – as it was known then – was first opened as a care home in 1965 by the Abbeyfield Society. Twenty years later a will bequest left by local businesswoman Madge McFadyen paid for a modern extension to the back of the building and the home became known as Alma McFadyen. The 20 bedded home is now a well furnished and attractively decorated home with a range of modern facilities designed to ensure the health and safety of residents.
There are regular activities such as bingo, dominoes, card making and quizzes as well as day trips and a variety of entertainment provided by visiting musicians.
Whenever possible we enjoy celebrating birthdays, anniversaries and special occasions, such as Burns Night, with friends and families and our active Relatives Committee.
REQUEST A CALLBACK
My mum had been a resident at The Grove since last September and I would just like to say how much she enjoyed it there.
She was kept clean and well-fed.She always said that the meals were lovely couldn’t ask for better.She had clean clothes on everyday.
The staff were always kind and pleasant.When I visited every day they always opened the door to me with a warm welcome and a smile.
Nothing was too much trouble for them.When mum took ill in May they were very concerned, sent for the doctor when he was needed.They couldn’t do enough for her or me while I stayed with her.The staff really did look after her in her final days.My brother and I cannot thank the staff enough for their kindness and thoughtfulness.
