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.

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.

Four Seasons Health Care were finalists in nine categories at this year’s LaingBuisson Awards, and at the awards ceremony on Wednesday 15th November, the organisation was awarded with a well-deserved award.

The LaingBuisson Awards recognise and celebrate industry excellence and innovative services in the public, private and third sectors.

Four Seasons Health Care scooped the award in the ‘Nursing Practice’ category in recognition of the innovative approach to the advancement of nursing knowledge and nursing education within the care home sector.

Our Care Home Nursing Journal (CNJ) along with our individual Nursing Twitter channel (@FSHCNurses) won plaudits with the judges for being totally unique within the care sector.

Furthermore, there was a recognition of the achievements of the front-line nurses who have written articles, presented at conferences, won scholarships and been finalists at numerous nursing awards in the past 12 months. Again, these achievements are unique within the care sector.

Joanne Strain, Head of Nursing, said: “This is a terrific result for Four Seasons Health Care and real recognition of our growing influence amongst care home nurses in the UK. This is only the start of our journey and I want to dedicate this award to all our tremendous nurses across the FSHC family”.

Carol Cousins, Northern Ireland Managing Director, also commented on the award success. She said: “This award is recognition for inspirational nurse leaders in creating the first clinical nursing journal in the independent care home sector – well done to all involved”.

While CNJ editorial board member, and Clinical Lead Nurse of Cameron House Care Home in Bury, Craig Priestley stated: “I’m so proud we won – the CNJ is one of the best learning resources we have for Four Seasons Nurses. It has shaped and improved nursing practice and helped to improve quality of life – well done to all involved in its production!”

If you’d like to take a look at the award winning journal, it’s available on the Four Seasons website in the publications area.
