Welcome to Havencourt Care Home
You'll find Havencourt in the picturesque town of Stonehaven, Aberdeenshire.
Here our team of registered nurses and well trained carers and senior carers provides care to suit individual needs, in the range from day care to dementia and palliative care.
Havencourt has a ground floor dementia-care unit, with the upper floor housing people who are frail and elderly. We have several lounges and spacious dining rooms, and a small garden and patio area.
Bedrooms have en-suites and great safety systems, and we love residents to personalise these spaces to make them more homely.
Life at Havencourt Care Home
Our dedicated activities officers ensure all residents are as active as they wish to be with interests designed to meet their individual needs and interests.
Pastimes, diversions and entertainment include gardening, games, quizzes, karaoke, concerts and film afternoons. Havencourt has a reminiscence room to evoke memories of the past.
We also celebrate all special occasions such as birthdays, Burns Night, Halloween, Mother's Day, Father's Day, and Easter, and major sporting events.
My Mother-in-Law, stayed for 3 months at Havencourt in Stonehaven. We were very impressed by the standard of care she received. In particular the staff were friendly, professional, dedicated and conscientious. They provided care of a very high level. They were compassionate and we couldn't fault them.
The resident had lived independently until into his late nineties, quite suddenly realizing that he needed much more living support. The family, in discussion with his doctor and social services, recommend Havencourt as a respite provider, leaving the resident to decide if he would like to stay at Havencourt, or look further for long term care.
It took very little time for him to decide to select Havencourt as the long term care home. Havencourt fulfilled his desire for warmth, company and hot food, three things that we all take for granted, but sadly miss if informal help from friends and family can no longer meet the need, much as they wished to help him maintain his independence.
The staff were excellent, he loved the food and enjoyed mixing with other residents at mealtimes when he wanted to. He told family members that he regretted he hadn't moved into Havencourt sooner.
The staff were always kind to my father in law and helpful to us.
The home had a pleasant environment, morale of staff and residents seemed to be very good.

Ideas on how to help people living with dementia to lead a fulfilling life without barriers have been hitting the headlines recently.
Four Seasons Health Care’s Home Manager from Havencourt Care Home, Rhona McGregor has been helping Tesco employees in Forfar undertake the Four Season’s Dementia Experience.
Rhona McGregor said: “People living with dementia can still lead fulfilling lives and do the things they enjoy doing. I believe it’s our approach as professionals, whether in the health care sector or other sectors, that needs to adapt to remove any barriers that may be in the way. We’re delighted that employees from Tesco want to take part in the experience so they can enhance the lives of shoppers in their stores. This is the second batch of Tesco employees to take part in the training, and they’re all embracing it to the full.”
The Dementia Experience attempts to provide participants with a taste of what living with dementia might be like. Participants have their physical senses temporarily impaired with a variety of props, and are then asked to complete simple daily tasks, such as pairing up socks, buttoning a shirt and laying a table. The experience can be frustrating and distressing in equal measure, and provides a glimpse into what it might be like to be living with dementia.
The Dementia Experience is part of Four Seasons Health Care’s new approach to dementia care, the Dementia Care Framework. This pioneering approach is a unique step forward in the personalisation of care for people living with dementia. The care team uses exclusive purpose-designed technology to help build and continuously update a picture of each resident’s individual experience of their care and their physical, psychological and emotional well-being, so that their care can be adjusted to their changing needs. There are three additional components to the Dementia Care Framework – personal care reviews, Resident Charters and Family Charters. Only when a home achieves key standards within the Dementia Care Framework does it receive Four Seasons Accreditation for the quality of its dementia care.
Rhona McGregor added: “The teams in our homes are all receiving this experience as part of their dementia training. Offering it out to organisations in the local community is a logical next step. It also ensures people living with dementia have the understanding and support of the community’s they live in, to help them lead a fulfilling life without barriers.”
