Welcome to The Meadows Care Home
You'll find The Meadows on the outskirts of the small town of Huntly, Aberdeenshire. Our team of trained nurses and care assistants (who all have SVQ Level 2 or are working towards it) deliver excellent care to our frail elderly and dementia residents.
We're in a quiet location where residents can enjoy the home's surrounding grounds, and there's a separate sensory garden which also has a small vegetable and herb plot. We've had a major refurbishment and the home is decorated and furnished to a very high standard
All bedrooms are on the ground floor, and have en-suites and garden views, many with bird tables outside their windows. We love residents and families to personalise these spaces to make them homely.
Life at The Meadows Care Home
Our dedicated activities coordinator spends regular one-to-one sessions with all residents to ensure each has something stimulating and enjoyable to look forward to. Goings-on include outings, craft work, entertainment and concerts, quizzes and games.
We're also involved with community events such as the regular tea dance at the local hall and indoor bowling.
Catering is of a high standard; we develop menus from the results of six-monthly residents' questionnaires, and by holding regular group meetings with residents and their relatives.
The family of Isobel Lawrie wish to thank all the staff for the care they showed her. Isobel is now in place in Aberdeen close to all her family we visit her daily. Again her stay in the Meadows was excellent and you all made her life more enjoyable. The management and owners should be proud that the staff are dedicated to the care off all there residents. We wish you all the best for the future you gave her all your love and care .
Thanks from the heart
The home is a lovely place with a homely atmosphere. All the staff are very welcoming and care for my husband extremely well.
Mum has been a resident here for over a year and is very happy, she has the choice how her room is done has her own furniture, pictures etc which is making her stay better than the family could have imagined we (her family) can come at anytime and if we are here at meal times we are also offered we can have any amount of teas and coffee we want, we are treated so well. The staff are of all ages which work extremely well and are fantastic.

As delayed transfers of care remain at record highs, how can we reduce unnecessary hospital stays for older people? That was the key question at an HSJ event held in association with Four Seasons Health Care.
The roundtable heard that the healthcare system often finds reasons not to deal with care home residents and looked at the success of an innovative collaboration between the NHS and care homes in Belfast.
With a collaborative approach between care homes and the NHS, older people are able to leave hospital and receive expert care, whilst assessing whether their long term future would be in their current home or a local care home. “The idea is that it would provide short term rehabilitation in conjunction with the two trusts in that area. The joint partnerships with the trusts I’ve worked with have just been amazing, and that’s what makes it work”, explained Janice Brown, Four Seasons’ regional manager for the Belfast and Newtownabbey area.
In addition to the improvements from a collaborative solution, South Eastern Health and Social Care Trust reported that the joint partnership approach of providing a bed in a care home reduced their yearly cost by more than half.

Residents from The Meadows Care Home in Huntly had a lovely day creating Easter bonnets, which was followed by a traditional fish and chip supper.
Elaine Crawford, Home Manager, said: “The residents had a lovely time creating Easter bonnets ready for our competition. Once all of the creativeness had finished, the residents tucked into a delicious fish and chip supper, which they all enjoyed. Nothing beats the good old taste of chippy chips.”
