What our residents and their families say
“It wasn’t an easy decision to place mum in a home, but I had a good feeling the moment I walked into Brightside. It was my first time in this type of place and it was far from what I imagined. Staff weren’t dressed in uniforms, the building itself felt warm and inviting too. From the décor to the furniture I just knew mum would be happy here. It was the best decision I ever made, Brightside offers me peace of mind.” Stephanie, 53, St Mellons
“We are constantly having a giggle with the staff. I was worried about coming to a home for a long time. I didn’t want to be told what to do and when to do it, I’m an independent man, I was a police officer for many years! I get help with the things I need help with and my wishes are respected. I enjoy visiting the pub and local shops, the staff encourage me to be active and they are there when I need them.” James, 64, Roath
“Nobody wants to be alone at my age. Knowing that people that really do care about me are around me is why I like living at Brightside. Nothing is ever too much effort. My health has improved massively since coming to the Home, I have even surprised myself!” June, 93, Llanrumney
“The staff at Brightside are friendly and thoughtful. I really enjoyed my surprise birthday party with all my family and friends. They always make a fuss over every one living here and that makes me feel part of a community.” Patel , 90 , Pen-y-lan.
