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.
