Our purpose-built home and specialist dementia suite was designed to incorporate many special recognition and orientation features to help residents with dementia-related conditions.
Making yourself at home
We know that it can be a big decision to leave somewhere that has been your home for many years, but the team here are passionate about making this your home-from-home.
We aim to provide the flexibility and comfort you’ve enjoyed previously, with the knowledge that, if and when you need support, you’re surrounded by professional and caring people.
Our team provide a caring environment that respects your needs, while balancing this with opportunities to enjoy stimulating company and a wide range of activities.
Activities at Antiquary Care Home
We know events help improve overall physical strength and mental well-being, and seeing residents blossom, as our approach brings out the best in them, is an absolute joy.
Regular organised activities vary and includes: seated exercise, entertainment with regular shows, quizzes and concerts; hobbies, such as arts and crafts, flower arranging, painting and card making; and games.
Events are always optional, but our Activities Coordinators help deliver a full calendar of structured and meaningful activities. Family and friends can also participate.
“The home has a lively entertainment programme encompassing a wide variety of choice.”
Balhousie Antiquary is situated just off Westway, close to the centre of Arbroath.
With excellent access throughout the building, including full lift access to all floors, wide corridors and doorways make it easy for those in wheelchairs to move about. Our approach embraces an overall feeling of wellness for our residents; right at the heart of the local community.
There are four bright, comfortable communal sitting rooms and two ‘quiet rooms’, each providing space to meet up with old and new friends alike.
Coffee, tea and hot chocolate are available throughout the day, as is a range of tasty squashes and refreshing fruit drinks. The location of our home also encourages strong interaction with the community. We invite locals into our home for dinner and take residents to the local coffee shops to enjoy an outing.
