Welcome to Benholm Care Home
Benholm is a traditional mansion house in beautiful grounds near the edge of Forfar, Angus.
Here our registered nurses, senior care assistants and trained care assistants provide for residents with varying levels of needs, from respite to long term.
Our home has traditional character with original high, ornate ceilings. Downstairs is a beautiful and spacious sitting and dining room with two large bay windows and other original features. At the front of the building, a light and airy sunroom overlooks spacious gardens.
All bedrooms are single and most have en-suite toilets and hand basins. We love residents to personalise these spaces to make them feel more homely.
It was a big decision to put my father into care but I cannot be happier with my choice. The staff are friendly and caring and the care and dignity of the resident is paramount, my father is so happy. Everything the staff do is done with respect, compassion and understanding. They have frequent trips out and there are a wide range of activities on offer. Would highly recommend.

The 27th Annual Alzheimer Europe Conference “Care today, cure tomorrow” took place on 2nd October 2017 till the 4th October 2017 in Berlin, Germany. It’s the largest dementia conference in Europe, which welcomed close to 750 participants from 42 countries.
Dr Claire Royston, Colin Sheeran, Joanne Strain and Dr Gary Mitchell represented Four Seasons Health Care at this event and presented five papers on a number of aspects of our Dementia Care Framework.
Dr Claire Royston presented European conference delegates with an overview on the Dementia Care Framework programme and how it has helped optimise care to people living with dementia in care homes. Her presentation was supplemented with impactful data from our 100 accredited care homes across the UK.
Other aspects of the Framework were also presented at the conference with reference to our work on antipsychotic medication reductions and reviews, the dementia experience programme, palliative and end-of-life care in dementia and reduction of restraint.
Following on from sharing our work at an international stage, our Dementia Care Framework will next be presented at the UK Dementia Congress in Doncaster next month – the UK’s largest dementia conference.
We also have some exciting news regarding the Dementia Care Framework. An article on the positive impact of the Framework has been accepted for publication in an international dementia journal, meaning that people all over the world will be able to learn about our innovative approach to improving quality of life for people living with dementia.
