Passionate About Care

A Rewarding Career
Balhousie Care Group is an organisation based on people: our residents, our staff and our relatives and partners. We truly strive to capture the true essence of person-centred care by recognising that people come first. By looking after the care of people, the rest will follow.
At Balhousie we understand that choosing a care home for yourself or your loved ones can be a stressful time. To help you through the range of issues that could come up we’ve put together this handy guide.
Ask your social care department for an assessment of your care needs.
Research homes in your area that meet your care needs: location, facilities, staff, maintenance
Arrange a financial assessment from the council for information and help with paying your fees
Look at care inspection reports for homes you have shortlisted, this will show you care grades and performance
Visit homes to make sure you’re happy with your decision, you may even be able to do a short stay prior to moving in
As we get older, we all have our own specific care and support needs. We understand that considering leaving somewhere that has been your home for many years can be one of the biggest decisions you will make in your lifetime. Once a care requirement is evident, there are lots of aspects to consider when choosing a care home such as types of care available, facilities, location, atmosphere and environment.
