Welcome to Havencourt Care Home
You'll find Havencourt in the picturesque town of Stonehaven, Aberdeenshire.
Here our team of registered nurses and well trained carers and senior carers provides care to suit individual needs, in the range from day care to dementia and palliative care.
Havencourt has a ground floor dementia-care unit, with the upper floor housing people who are frail and elderly. We have several lounges and spacious dining rooms, and a small garden and patio area.
Bedrooms have en-suites and great safety systems, and we love residents to personalise these spaces to make them more homely.
Life at Havencourt Care Home
Our dedicated activities officers ensure all residents are as active as they wish to be with interests designed to meet their individual needs and interests.
Pastimes, diversions and entertainment include gardening, games, quizzes, karaoke, concerts and film afternoons. Havencourt has a reminiscence room to evoke memories of the past.
We also celebrate all special occasions such as birthdays, Burns Night, Halloween, Mother's Day, Father's Day, and Easter, and major sporting events.
My Mother-in-Law, stayed for 3 months at Havencourt in Stonehaven. We were very impressed by the standard of care she received. In particular the staff were friendly, professional, dedicated and conscientious. They provided care of a very high level. They were compassionate and we couldn't fault them.
The resident had lived independently until into his late nineties, quite suddenly realizing that he needed much more living support. The family, in discussion with his doctor and social services, recommend Havencourt as a respite provider, leaving the resident to decide if he would like to stay at Havencourt, or look further for long term care.
It took very little time for him to decide to select Havencourt as the long term care home. Havencourt fulfilled his desire for warmth, company and hot food, three things that we all take for granted, but sadly miss if informal help from friends and family can no longer meet the need, much as they wished to help him maintain his independence.
The staff were excellent, he loved the food and enjoyed mixing with other residents at mealtimes when he wanted to. He told family members that he regretted he hadn't moved into Havencourt sooner.
The staff were always kind to my father in law and helpful to us.
The home had a pleasant environment, morale of staff and residents seemed to be very good.

Four Seasons Health Care were well represented at the finals of the British Journal of Nursing Awards earlier this month with four colleagues flying the flag for the organisation.
Gary Cousins was a runner up in the Infection Control and Prevention Nurse category, Colin Sheeran was a runner up in the Mental Health Nurse of the Year category and Joanne Strain was a runner up in the British Nurse of the Year category.
However, further plaudits need to be given to Alana Irvine who was crowned the Nutritional Nurse of the Year, after being nominated by colleagues for her continued commitment to residents’ nutrition.
Alana has been part of the driving force behind Four Seasons nutrition innovations to meet the varying needs of the people in our care. We are able to monitor residents’ nutritional needs, with technology that flags up weight loss, whether a resident has difficulty swallowing or needs assistance when eating or drinking to the care team.
Nutrition is something we take very seriously here at Four Seasons and Alana’s win recognises all of the hard work done across the board in this area.

Two Aberdeenshire care homes have achieved high overall performance ratings in a national survey of people living in care homes.
Havencourt Care Home in Stonehaven has achieved a 97% overall performance rating, while Laurels Lodge, in Woodside scored 94%, in the survey conducted by leading market research organisation Ipsos Mori for “Your Care Rating”.
The overall performance rating is derived from four core themes: staff and care, home comforts, choice and having a say and the quality of life being experienced by the residents.
Both Havencourt and Laurels Lodge, which are operated by Four Seasons Health Care, scored the maximum possible of 100% for residents saying they are happy with their life in the homes.
Havencourt scored just over 98% and Laurels Lodge scored 97% around the theme of the quality of life for people living in the homes.
The two homes each achieved the maximum possible 100% rating for being safe and secure and for the care team treating residents with kindness, dignity and respect. All respondents in both homes said that the care teams understand them as an individual, are sensitive to how they are feeling and are capable of providing the care they need.
Both homes scored 100% for the choice of meals offered and 100% for offering activities for residents to take part in if they want.
John Kirk, Managing Director for Four Seasons Health Care in Scotland, who run the homes, said: "Both care teams are delighted that in this independent national survey the residents at Havencourt and Laurels Lodge rated the homes so highly.
"The survey outcome corresponds with the responses we have had directly from residents, their relatives and care professionals who are able to give us instant feedback on a day to day basis about any aspect of care quality, by using iPads placed in the home with a touch-screen questionnaire linked to purpose designed software. This has been recording a 100% overall customer satisfaction rating for Havencourt and 98% for Laurels Lodge Care Home.”

We’ll be launching the 2017 Four Seasons Care Awards in the summer. In the meantime, we thought it would be nice to catch up with some of the winners of last year’s awards, to see what it’s been like since they’ve gone back to the floor.
This week we’ll be focusing on Sheena Walker, a member of the Learning and Development Team in Scotland who won the Central Support Team Member accolade.
Sheena is definitely a force to be reckoned with in Scotland, and her passion for helping others develop in their health care career is something to be admired. That’s why when she won the Central Support Team Member of the Year award she was surprised and over whelmed.
“It was a little bit intimidating receiving so much recognition,” explains Sheena. “It is nice to be recognised, but for me it’s not a job. I am very passionate about nursing. I was a nurse myself for a long time. I want to nurture and grow this passion in others who embark on their own nursing journey.”
Since winning the award Sheena has been continuing to support and develop Four Seasons colleagues in Scotland as they complete their Scottish Vocational Qualifications (SVQ).
Sheena is a very humble lady. John Kirk, Managing Director for Scotland, Wales and the Isle of Man had this to say about her. “Sheena is a fantastic lady, and a great asset for us to have up here in Scotland. The support she provides her colleagues to help them progress through qualifications is second to none. I’m glad she’s been recognised in this way.”
