Making The Most That Aberdeen Has to Offer

We believe the picturesque coastal city of Aberdeen is one of the most desirable places to live. With lots of places to visit in and around Aberdeen, Residents can really make the most of what Aberdeen has to offer. From historic tours of Dunnottar Castle, to picturesque strolls at Duthie Park and just a short drive to the nearest beaches which truly is the perfect place to get some fresh air. Dobbie’s Garden Centre is a popular spot for older people year-round. From stunning water features and a summer house display to an array of Christmas decorations in the winter, there’s much to look at.

Aberdeen is enriched in history so there’s lots of cultural attractions to be explored. Aberdeen Maritime Museum is popular with both locals and tourists, as well as Slains Castle where you can visit the ruins of the castle, which was taken as inspiration for the well-known tale of ‘Dracula’. Aberdeen Art Gallery is home to one of the finest art collections, with works spanning to over 700 years, and perfect for those who have a fascination with modern art. Exploring the local area is a great way of spending time with loved ones whether it’s meeting with friends or your son and daughter-in-law.

Residential Care

Residential care provides residents with the freedom to live their life the way they want to, while receiving assistance from a helpful member of staff as and when they need it. Residential care is best suited to those who are no longer able to maintain their household or those who find it a challenge to complete their personal routine.

We encourage residents to use their unique abilities and skills so that they can continue to lead a self-sufficient lifestyle. Those residing at our residential home can spend each day participating in their favourite activities and socialising with like-minded people while all housekeeping chores are dealt with, with their favourite meals prepared by an in-house chef which takes into account special diets and food intolerances.

Nursing Care

Nursing care is available to residents who require around-the-clock medical and personal care. This method of care will greatly benefit individuals with high dependency needs, illnesses, physical disabilities and long-term health conditions as well as those in need of palliative care.

Our nursing home has modern nursing equipment such as profiling beds, hoists and walking aids for maximum convenience. Each resident has their own nurse who gets to know everything there is including their likes, dislikes and preferences in order to provide the highest standard of care.

Dementia Care

Woodlands Care Home offers dementia care to people living with the neurological condition. As dementia commonly affects part of the brain, it means that many people struggle with their communication, memory and cognitive thinking, therefore it’s important to get the correct care in order to live a life that’s free from stress and frustrations. Our mission is to help residents with dementia lead a vibrant and pleasant life at Woodlands. Our exceptional team has received the necessary dementia training to provide effective dementia care within a homely environment.

We know that every resident requires a different level of care, and that some will need a little support while others will need much more. We develop personalised care plans at our care home to ensure everyone receives accurate person centred care for their situation and has the opportunity each day to enjoy the things they always have done.

Respite Care

Respite care is a form of care given on a short-term basis that allows those who are caring for loved ones to take a break from their caregiving responsibilities for a while their grandparent, partner or mum receives high-quality care. This form of care is also suitable for those who need assistance day-to-day while they are recovering from an operation or illness.

A short-term care service can also be used to trial a care home for a couple of weeks as a way of finding out whether a care home is right for someone. No matter what an individual’s reasons may be for needing temporary care, each person will be treated with dignity and respect here in Aberdeen.

Supporting Residents & Their Family

Finding the right care home for you or a loved one can result in difficult times for many as care homes in Scotland offer different services and amenities, so it’s important to do your research. The inspiring team at Woodlands Care Home with a caring attitude is here to help you feel more at ease during the transitional period. By talking through the individual needs and requirements of someone, our Home Manager can recommend which of the care types within the social care sector is most appropriate for the person seeking care, be it on a temporary or permanent basis should this decision change. 

Following admission, an assessment will be carried out for our team to create a personalised care plan to ensure both health and well-being needs are being addressed at all times. If family members of an existing resident or new residents have any questions or concerns, a member of our caring staff will always be available to provide support. We have an open-door policy so that relatives can visit our care home at any time, as we believe residents should spend time with their loved ones as often as possible. With recent Scottish government guidance, they no longer require face masks to be worn or a lateral flow test to be taken by visitors due to high vaccination rates.
