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.

Four Seasons Health Care were finalists in nine categories at this year’s LaingBuisson Awards, and at the awards ceremony on Wednesday 15th November, the organisation was awarded with a well-deserved award.
The LaingBuisson Awards recognise and celebrate industry excellence and innovative services in the public, private and third sectors.
Four Seasons Health Care scooped the award in the ‘Nursing Practice’ category in recognition of the innovative approach to the advancement of nursing knowledge and nursing education within the care home sector.
Our Care Home Nursing Journal (CNJ) along with our individual Nursing Twitter channel (@FSHCNurses) won plaudits with the judges for being totally unique within the care sector.
Furthermore, there was a recognition of the achievements of the front-line nurses who have written articles, presented at conferences, won scholarships and been finalists at numerous nursing awards in the past 12 months. Again, these achievements are unique within the care sector.
Joanne Strain, Head of Nursing, said: “This is a terrific result for Four Seasons Health Care and real recognition of our growing influence amongst care home nurses in the UK. This is only the start of our journey and I want to dedicate this award to all our tremendous nurses across the FSHC family”.
Carol Cousins, Northern Ireland Managing Director, also commented on the award success. She said: “This award is recognition for inspirational nurse leaders in creating the first clinical nursing journal in the independent care home sector – well done to all involved”.
While CNJ editorial board member, and Clinical Lead Nurse of Cameron House Care Home in Bury, Craig Priestley stated: “I’m so proud we won – the CNJ is one of the best learning resources we have for Four Seasons Nurses. It has shaped and improved nursing practice and helped to improve quality of life – well done to all involved in its production!”
If you’d like to take a look at the award winning journal, it’s available on the Four Seasons website in the publications area.
