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.

Four Seasons Health Care picked up three accolades on Tuesday 5th December 2017 at the Training Journal (TJ) Awards. Winning three categories meant that Four Seasons Health Care led the way, as they were the only organisation to win in multiple categories.
Who were the winners?
The Dementia Care Framework won the ‘Best Change Management Programme’, which is a fantastic achievement and further highlights the positive impact this is having on the lives of people living in Four Seasons homes with dementia.
The Judges commented: “We recognise Four Health Care work in the field of dementia care as innovative and thorough in its approach, being both effective and transformative. It had a bold vision that was well executed in a challenging environment.”
The Care Home Nursing Journal (CNJ), Four Seasons’ very own internal publication to develop nurse knowledge and share best practice won its category of ‘Best Organisational Development Programme'.
The Judges commented: “The design of this intervention, which on the surface appears very simple, completely meets the needs of the organisation and has had significant impact. A particular strength was that Four Seasons Health Care decided to make these resources freely available to anyone, making the impact even greater and is improving healthcare outcomes in care homes everywhere.”
Finally, Louise Morris the Care Home Assistant Practitioner (CHAP) Lead won the main award of the night and was crowned the ‘Learning and Development Professional of the Year’.
The Judges stated: “Louise has had a transformational impact, not only on the learning and development of staff at Four Seasons Health Care, but also on the well-being of residents. Through a review of an existing programme, Louise drove design and improvement which has had significant benefits through improved care, staff practice and confidence and commitment to their work and professional development.”
Congratulations to everyone on this fantastic achievement!
