Welcome to Banks O'Dee Care Home
At Banks O'Dee, in Tullos, Aberdeen, we focus on resident-led care, putting the health and happiness of residents at the heart of everything we do.
We are especially trained in caring for those living with dementia. Our unique approach is based on understanding dementia form the resident’s perspective, enabling us to deliver Special Resident Experiences and consistently good care everywhere.
To support this we use our Quality of Life Programme that as well as being linked to the quality of care allows us to log and action any feedback and comments from residents, families and professionals to ensure our residents are as happy and well cared for as they can be.
We're also set in a fabulous location – in walking distance of the River Dee with lots of local amenities for residents to visit if they wish.
What’s more, our spacious and purpose-built home has just benefited from a huge refurbishment that residents can enjoy. All our bedrooms are en-suite and the communal lounges and dining rooms are bright and airy so the home is a really lovely and comfortable place to live.
Our pleasant gardens also have a safe patio area that ensures all residents can spend time outside gardening, pottering or just relaxing if they choose. Why not come and visit us to see for yourself?
Life at Banks O'Dee Care Home
Our activities coordinator organises group and one-to-one activities. Many residents with dementia find the one-to-one time with staff particularly calming and rewarding.
Pastimes, diversions and entertainment include coffee mornings, gardening, seasonal events, arts and crafts, and quizzes. All are completely optional, and for those who like to join in we provide a programme around the home.
Meals are home-cooked by our own chef, and there's always a choice. We're more than happy to cater for individual dietary and cultural needs.
I feel at home when I visit my mother and feel confident that she is being well looked after, I wouldn't want her to be anywhere else.
The manager will always spend time taking to you and will help you with any problems you have. I would recommend the home to anyone
Excellent communications on progress and condition. The staff are very friendly and my mum is content.
I can walk in to the Home and feel comfortable. Everybody is always so friendly. It just feels like going to my mums house and I don't worry about going home.
The food is very good and if there is nothing on the menu I like an alternative is always offered. There are snacks and drinks available whenever I want one.
I am always informed of any changes to my mothers care or condition. Its gives me great peace of mind to know she is well cared for
The number and variety of activities provided by the home is excellent.
I don't know how to thank you all enough for the wonderful way in which you cared for my Dad. You made him feel special and loved. You made him happy.

Four Seasons Health Care picked up three accolades on Tuesday 5th December 2017 at the Training Journal (TJ) Awards. Winning three categories meant that Four Seasons Health Care led the way, as they were the only organisation to win in multiple categories.
Who were the winners?
The Dementia Care Framework won the ‘Best Change Management Programme’, which is a fantastic achievement and further highlights the positive impact this is having on the lives of people living in Four Seasons homes with dementia.
The Judges commented: “We recognise Four Health Care work in the field of dementia care as innovative and thorough in its approach, being both effective and transformative. It had a bold vision that was well executed in a challenging environment.”
The Care Home Nursing Journal (CNJ), Four Seasons’ very own internal publication to develop nurse knowledge and share best practice won its category of ‘Best Organisational Development Programme'.
The Judges commented: “The design of this intervention, which on the surface appears very simple, completely meets the needs of the organisation and has had significant impact. A particular strength was that Four Seasons Health Care decided to make these resources freely available to anyone, making the impact even greater and is improving healthcare outcomes in care homes everywhere.”
Finally, Louise Morris the Care Home Assistant Practitioner (CHAP) Lead won the main award of the night and was crowned the ‘Learning and Development Professional of the Year’.
The Judges stated: “Louise has had a transformational impact, not only on the learning and development of staff at Four Seasons Health Care, but also on the well-being of residents. Through a review of an existing programme, Louise drove design and improvement which has had significant benefits through improved care, staff practice and confidence and commitment to their work and professional development.”
Congratulations to everyone on this fantastic achievement!
