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.

Life at Benholm Care Home

A carer and a resident

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.

intermediate care HSJ guides

24 Apr 2017

As delayed transfers of care remain at record highs, how can we reduce unnecessary hospital stays for older people? That was the key question at an HSJ event held in association with Four Seasons Health Care.

The roundtable heard that the healthcare system often finds reasons not to deal with care home residents and looked at the success of an innovative collaboration between the NHS and care homes in Belfast.

With a collaborative approach between care homes and the NHS, older people are able to leave hospital and receive expert care, whilst assessing whether their long term future would be in their current home or a local care home. “The idea is that it would provide short term rehabilitation in conjunction with the two trusts in that area. The joint partnerships with the trusts I’ve worked with have just been amazing, and that’s what makes it work”, explained Janice Brown, Four Seasons’ regional manager for the Belfast and Newtownabbey area.

In addition to the improvements from a collaborative solution, South Eastern Health and Social Care Trust reported that the joint partnership approach of providing a bed in a care home reduced their yearly cost by more than half.
