Tony Banks, founder and Chairman of Balhousie Care Group, bought his first care home in August 1991 in Kirriemuir, Angus.
In the initial stages, Tony and his young family lived in the upstairs quarters whilst he refurbished the home, making it fit for care home purposes. The works were completed in the April of 1992 and Lisden Care Home’s doors opened to the first Balhousie residents later that month. The aim was to fill a gap in quality residential care in North East Scotland.
Today, with 25 homes across Scotland, Balhousie Care Group is one of the leading providers of care for the elderly in Scotland, providing care to over 900 residents. Our person-centred approach to care, our innovative practices and our close community links have won us a swathe of awards and made us a trusted name in care.
