Passionate About Care
A Home From Home
A Rewarding Career
Balhousie Care Group is an organisation based on people: our residents, our staff and our relatives and partners. We truly strive to capture the true essence of person-centred care by recognising that people come first. By looking after the care of people, the rest will follow.
Here at Balhousie Care our team is passionate about delivering the highest quality care and support to our residents, ensuring that our homes really are a ‘home-from-home’.
At Balhousie we understand that choosing a care home for yourself or your loved ones can be a stressful time. To help you through the range of issues that could come up we’ve put together this handy guide.
Ask your social care department for an assessment of your care needs.
Research homes in your area that meet your care needs: location, facilities, staff, maintenance
Arrange a financial assessment from the council for information and help with paying your fees
Look at care inspection reports for homes you have shortlisted, this will show you care grades and performance
Visit homes to make sure you’re happy with your decision, you may even be able to do a short stay prior to moving in
As we get older, we all have our own specific care and support needs. We understand that considering leaving somewhere that has been your home for many years can be one of the biggest decisions you will make in your lifetime. Once a care requirement is evident, there are lots of aspects to consider when choosing a care home such as types of care available, facilities, location, atmosphere and environment.
Here at Balhousie Care our team is passionate about delivering the highest quality care and support to our residents, ensuring that our homes really are a ‘home-from-home’. As Scotland’s largest private care provider, we are committed to being the best, from award-winning dementia services to forward-thinking new technology to first-class menus. Residents play their part in everything we do, from activities programmes to recruitment.
“Since my mum arrived she has been treated with only kindness and compassion by all the staff, whether it’s the care staff taking time for a chat and a laugh or the nursing staff tending to her medical needs.”
We’re inspired by each other’s achievements and successes: a resident achieving something they never thought was possible or a colleague doing something great that captures our imagination. These actions inspire us to be better, do more and strive for excellence. To read our care home news click here, or go to the individual care home page.
Two Balhousie Care Group care homes are opening their doors to job seekers as the company looks to promote a career in care. Balhousie Ruthven Towers in Auchterarder will hold a recruitment fair on Saturday October 26 while Balhousie Dalnaglar in Crieff will do the same on Saturday November 9.
When Well Being Co-ordinator Lynne McDowall came across Postcards for Kindness on Facebook, she knew it was a great opportunity for residents to get involved in.
