Making yourself at home

Lisden care home is a community of caring people – staff, residents and relatives alike – all working together to ensure a warm, compassionate and comforting environment. We know that it can be a big decision to leave somewhere that has been your home for many years, but the team here is passionate about making this your home from home.

We aim to provide the flexibility and comfort you’ve enjoyed previously, but with the knowledge that, if and when you need support, you’re surrounded by professional nurses and caring people.

Activities at Lisden Care Home

We know events help improve overall physical strength and mental wellbeing, and seeing residents blossom as a result is an absolute joy.

Organised activities vary, and include regular exercises; hand and nail therapy; gardening; flower arranging; arts and crafts; and quizzes. There are also events such as live music, mobile theatre shows and reminiscence sessions, as well as a host of other field trips and intergenerational activities.

Events are always optional, but our dedicated activity coordinator involves residents in preparing each week’s plan – so there’s bound to be a lot that appeals.

Family and friends can also participate in our calendar of structured and meaningful activities, or join us on trips into the local community for a coffee in Kirriemuir.

“Our whole family are so impressed by Lisden and can’t praise the service enough. Thank you all, very much.”

Balhousie Lisden offers homely, spacious and welcoming accommodation in this grade 2 listed Victorian house.

Residents are able to enjoy the gardens, sit in the outdoor patio area or just relax and enjoy the beautiful views from the lounge, which overlook the impressive gardens and surrounding countryside. Many of the resident bedrooms also provide stunning views.

With a Summerhouse and conservatory, which provides access to our patio area with cafestyle chairs, tables and large parasol umbrellas, our approach embraces an overall feeling of wellness for our residents right at the heart of the local community.

There is a bright, comfortable communal sitting room, 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 and refreshing drinks.

The location of our home also encourages strong interaction with the community. It is always a good experience venturing out for day trips and visits to the local coffee shops.
