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.

Here at Four Seasons we value all of our team members. We encourage and support them to complete courses to help them develop their skills, enabling them to further enhance their career.
One such way for Care Assistants to do this, is for them to complete the Care Home Assistant Practitioners (CHAPs) 12 week training programme. Whilst completing this course, the Care Assistants can learn how to support nurses with certain duties potentially freeing the nurse to deal with a more complex issue.
Nine of our Care Assistant in Northern Ireland enrolled onto this programme, and on Monday 4th September they successfully graduated as Care Home Assistant Practitioners.
Carol Cousins, Managing Director for Northern Ireland said: “The graduation of the 9 Care Home Assistant Practitioners in Northern Ireland is a hugely significant achievement as these special pioneers are the very first in such a role across the Care Home sector here.
"Having Mary Hinds the Director of Nursing from the Public Health Agency and HSC in NI along to present the awards has reinforced the positive impact that CHAPs have in delivering the best experience of care for our residents."
