Residential Care

Residential care will provide residents with the freedom to live their life exactly the way they want to, but assistance will always be available by our friendly staff should a resident need it. Residential care is best suited to those who are struggling to maintain a household or who need help here and there with their personal routine.

We will encourage residents to put their individual abilities and skills to good use so that they can continue to lead a self-sufficient lifestyle. Residents can spend each day carrying out their favourite activities and socialising with like-minded people while all housekeeping duties are dealt with and meals are prepared by our in-house chef.

Nursing Care

Nursing Care will be available to residents who require appropriate medical care and personal care on a 24-hour basis. This method of care will be greatly beneficial to individuals with high dependency needs, physical disabilities and long-term health conditions as well as those needing palliative care.

Our nursing home will have profiling beds and other specialised equipment for maximum comfort for residents receiving nursing care. Each resident will be assigned their own nurse who will get to know a resident to the best of their ability, and who will learn their likes, dislikes and preferences in order to meet a high standard of care through a person centred approach.

Dementia Care

Woodlands Care Home provides dementia care to people living with dementia and who need assistance day-to-day. While continuing to provide exceptional care, our aim is to enable people with dementia to use the abilities they have and maintain a degree of freedom where possible. Our care teams will have received up-to-date dementia training on all aspects of dementia and will ensure all dementia residents feel loved in a home environment. 

Because every resident is different, we are aware that some will need minor support while others will need much more depending on the progression of their condition. We will develop a personalised dementia care plan which ensures each resident is receiving an appropriate level of care, which will be reviewed regularly.

Respite Care

Respite care is a form of care offered on a short-term basis that enables people such as carers to take a break from their caregiving responsibilities for a duration of time. It is also best for those who need somewhere to fully recover from an injury or hospital stay until they get back on their feet.

Respite care can also be used to stay at a care home for a couple of weeks as a way of trialling the home before committing to the permanent move. No matter what an individual’s reasons may be for staying at Woodlands, each person will be treated with respect at our Aberdeen residence.

We Offer Our Support

Finding the right care home for you or someone close to you can often bring stress and uncertainty. The experienced team at Woodlands Care Home are always available to discuss the care services on offer at our Aberdeen home. By talking through the individual needs and requirements of an individual, future residents and their loved ones can have peace of mind knowing that a tailored care plan will be created and followed no matter whether they need residential, nursing, dementia or respite care.

Our home will be regulated by the Care Inspectorate which is an independent body that inspects all residential care homes and nursing homes in Scotland and gives an overall rating. This ensures all health and social care services in Scotland meet a high standard of care, where support will be given if required.
