Balhousie Care Group

Balhousie Care Group is a leading provider of residential care for older people across Scotland. With over 25 care homes located across the central belt, Tayside, Angus, Perthshire and Aberdeenshire. Balhousie provides high-quality care and support to allow residents to live fulfilling and meaningful lives.

Founded in 1981 with the purchase of Balhousie Castle care home in Perth, Balhousie has expanded over the years to become one of the largest private care home providers in Scotland. Their portfolio now includes facilities ranging from small, homely residences to larger, purpose-built care centres. Their homes provide long-term residential care, respite and dementia support in a warm, compassionate environment.

At the heart of the Balhousie Care Group is a focus on enabling residents to enjoy independence, dignity and wellbeing. They aim to celebrate life in their homes by nurturing residents’ individual interests, abilities and personal relationships. Their team of highly trained, dedicated care staff deliver tailored care plans to meet the physical, social and emotional needs of each resident.

Balhousie’s approach to care is based on ensuring residents can continue living life on their own terms. Residents are encouraged to make their own choices on things like daily routines, activities, food and clothing. Dedicated lifestyle coordinators organise a diverse calendar of events and outings based on residents’ preferences, from gardening and baking to concerts, day trips and celebrations. The aim is to create a welcoming, lively atmosphere where laughter and fun are just as important as clinical care.

As a provider of dementia care across many of its homes, Balhousie places a strong emphasis on creating safe, reassuring environments. Specialist dementia facilities include reminiscence areas, sensory rooms and secure gardens, while staff are trained in person-centred techniques to support residents experiencing memory loss and disorientation. Support is extended to families, who are encouraged to remain involved in their loved one’s care.

At its core, Balhousie strives to serve its residents while also supporting the wider community. Homes are situated at the heart of local neighborhoods, with many collaborating closely with schools, churches and community groups. Balhousie also operates an award-winning charity, Balhousie Care Foundation, which coordinates volunteering, befriending and intergenerational projects to enhance links between care homes and communities.

With its prestigious background in a historic Scottish castle, Balhousie Care Group has expanded significantly while retaining important values around compassion, dignity, and respect at every level. Their focus on celebrating life, nurturing relationships, and providing a caring, homely environment has established Balhousie as a leading care provider creating positive change for Scotland’s ageing population.

Looking to the future, Balhousie is committed to ongoing innovation in elderly care, investing in its staff, resources, and facilities. They aim to continue enhancing the quality of life for every resident through their expertise in residential care, dementia support, and creating engaging communities. With demand for elderly care in Scotland increasing, Balhousie Care Group’s dedication to enabling fulfilling lives will be vital in shaping the landscape of social care for an ageing population.
