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.

On Monday 27th March 2017 Four Seasons scooped the ‘Flu Fighter Social Care Award’ at the prestigious Flu Fighter awards.
The Flu Fighter award celebrate the great achievements of flu teams and organisations who promote the importance of flu vaccinations to everyone in their organisation.
Four Seasons was shortlisted for the ‘Social Care Award’ after being nominated following the success of the internal Flu and You campaign. Before being presented with the award, Daniel Mortimer, Chief Executive for NHS Employers said: “Four Seasons Heath Care launched its campaign with the goal of reducing the occurrence of flu in its colleagues. They created leaflets and flu packs that provided details about the importance of the flu vaccination and how to get vaccinated. This worked really well and they had an extra 1,600 colleagues vaccinated, which increased uptake by 22% this season. Well done.”

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.”

At Four Seasons we never forget that eating and drinking is about more than high quality nutrition. It’s also one of life’s most fundamental pleasures. That’s why the company have taken on the challenge of making food look both appetising and taste delicious for all residents.
To demonstrate this we gave residents, relatives and the care team at Bearehill Care Home in Brechin the chance to sample some tasty textured food.
Wendy Stephen, Resident Experience Support Manager for Grampian, said: "The family members found it interesting listening to David, who took the time to prepare the delicious delights.
"Of course, the best part of the session was tasting the delights of the Tiramisu, Morccan pots, Key Lime Pie, Lemon Posset and all the other wonderful dishes David had prepared. The residents certainly showed their appreciation.
"The evening was a great success and we are looking forward to doing it again."
