01575 574499Balhousie Lisden Care Home Kirriemuir – Heritage Collection
I’m Alison Miller, care home manager at Balhousie Lisden. This home has the distinction of being the first home in the Balhousie Care Group and as such retains a very special and significant place in our company’s history.
This former grand private home is set in beautiful private and mature gardens in the highly desirable residential area of Kirriemuir, the birthplace of J.M. Barrie, author of Peter Pan. His original home is now a small museum close to the town centre, which is just a few minutes’ drive from our home.
My staff and I welcome the opportunity to give you a tour of our home and show you the many attractive and homely features of which we are all very proud.
To arrange an appointment to view our home or to find out more about the care we provide please call 01575 574499 or click the 'arrange a visit' or 'enquiry' links above.
Caring for the diet of our residents and making sure they have nutritious meals is an area where you'll find our managers, our staff and most importantly our chefs extremely engaged and active.
The catering and hospitality services teams at Balhousie Care Group are constantly looking at ways we can improve our food and refreshment offerings. Recently, new menus have been introduced that have a greater content of fresh, local produce. This is part of an ongoing process of reviewing and responding to resident requests for more variety and choice.
In addition to the availability through the day of favourites such as coffee, tea and hot chocolate, our residents are also encouraged to drink a healthy amount of other fluids, including a special range of tasty squashes and refreshing fruit drinks to aid their hydration. This also makes a valuable contribution to bladder health and fitness.
By prior arrangement close family or relatives can join us at lunch or evening time to see for themselves just how tasty mealtimes at a Balhousie Care home can be.

Our weekly fee rates for full nursing care depend on individual circumstances. However as a guide, fees range from £550 (the Local Authority rate) per week.
Residents may have specific care requirements and residents with higher dependency levels may incur additional fees.
It is not possible to predetermine exact fee levels until a full assessment has been undertaken, following which residents will be provided with clear documentation outlining fees chargeable for their care.
Charges for extras are kept to a minimum. The supply of personal newspapers, provision of hairdressing and other ancillary items will incur a small additional charge.

- The thing I most enjoy is the interaction with residents and family members. Being part of a team that delivers high quality care, often in the latter years of an individual's life, while trying to promote their independence is a big responsibility. I think it's hugely important to be able to make that time as easy and comfortable as possible. Manager, Balhousie Lisden Care Home
