Welcome to Bearehill Care Home
Bearehill Care Home is in a Georgian mansion house, with two purpose-built additional units and set in its own grounds in the cathedral city of Brechin, Angus. Bearehill has traditional character with pillars and lovely ornate ceilings in the sitting and dining rooms, along with original fireplaces as focal points.
Outside it's equally fascinating. Our home's large windows look out over the grounds where rabbits and pheasants can be seen in their natural environment.
At Bearehill Care Home, residents are considered part of the family. We put their health and happiness at the heart of everything we do, and our dedicated team of nurses and carers actively encourage residents to take part in all decisions - contributing to everything from the way their rooms look to the therapies they receive.
Life at Bearehill Care Home
Our activities coordinators are always looking to develop new interests for the residents to enjoy with input from residents throughout the year. People living here can also enjoy the many open days and special events which we advertised throughout the home and in the local community.
We would like to thank you all for the love and kindness shown over the last three years. It was very much appreciated.
We want to thank all members of staff who cared so well for my brother-in-law during his stay in Bearehill.
We couldn't have chosen a better home for our aunt to spend her last few years. All staff made her feel special.
Thanks for making my departure to Australia easier now that I know mum is safe and very well cared for. Your regular updates via email about my mums antics never fail to make me smile.

Friday 16th June marked Care Home Open Day, a day that actively encourages people in the local community to pop into their local care home and find out what’s going on.
The theme for this year’s open day was friendship, and Four Seasons homes and their local community certainly forged some long lasting friendships with their local communities through a variety of different events.
The events included:
- The Prince’s Trust heading into Kingsmead Care Home in Swindon sprucing up the garden
- Ty Eirin Care Home in Port welcomed in local school children and councillors for a fun filled afternoon
- A Jazz band kept everyone entertained in Pontypridd at Ty Gwynno Care Home
- It was a more sleepy affair at Whittington Care Home in Chesterfield as the team turned up for work in the PJs before having lots of fun with residents, relatives and visitors to the home
- Music and dancing was definitely on the cards for many of our homes as Benarty View Care Home in Kelty, Gotton Manor Care Home in Taunton, Benholm Care Home in Forfar and Laurels Lodge Care Home in Woodside, all had musical entertainment (and an assortment of other activities) for their guests
- Campsie View Care Home in Glasgow had their own petting zoo for everyone to enjoy
- The Laurels Care Home in Hetton-le-Hole held a country and western themed day which everyone thoroughly enjoyed
- Jazz was the music of choice at The Cedars and Larches Care Home in Ilkeston’s festivities.
- Redwell Hills Care Home in Consett, remembered the friends they’d sadly lost and released some balloons with messages in their honour.
The photos you can see above are just a snap shot of what happened at our homes during Care Home Open Day. It’s great to see from the pictures that everyone had lots of fun.

April 2017 saw Four Seasons’ Health Care Grampian Region launch their VIP (Values In Practice) initiative which rewards people for living the Four Seasons values of being:
- and Making a Difference
Linda Mitchell, Personal Activities Leader at Bearehill Care Home in Brechin has been crowned VIP for the month of April after being nominated by colleagues, residents and relatives.
Wendy Stephen, Resident Experience Support Manager, said: “Linda was our VIP for April because she goes out of her way to help make the residents smile. Linda is always happy, cheerful and very caring. Nothing is too much trouble for her and she’s always a friendly face to see anytime of the day. Well done Linda!”
Sylvia Nicoll, Regional Manager for Grampian, said: “No matter how big or small the action or the gesture is, the VIP Awards are an opportunity to say thank you to people who go above and beyond the call of duty every day to make a difference to our residents’ lives.
“I want to congratulate Linda, you should all be really proud of your success.”

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.”
