Our Building and Facilities

Whether you’re entertaining your family and friends, spending time with other residents or taking part in activities, our living rooms are ideal. It’s always up to you whether you want to get involved with activities – you’re more than welcome to sit back, relax and enjoy the atmosphere.

There are three communal lounges in the home, including a quiet lounge, perfect for relaxing with visitors or having some peace and quiet.

We are surrounded by well-maintained gardens here at Angusfield House, including a recent expansion to our dementia unit’s garden. We have a seated potting shed area for those residents keen to exercise their green fingers and a washing line for those wanting to carry out some of life’s daily tasks.

Description

All our rooms have recently been refurbished to the highest specifications with new furniture, soft furnishings and fittings. We have designed the rooms with your comfort in mind. Your bedroom furniture consists of: a bed appropriate to your needs, wardrobe, bedside table with lockable drawer, armchair and other furniture suitable to the size of the room. Your bed linen and towels are provided by the home.

The majority of our rooms are en-suite and there are bath and shower rooms on each floor for residents to use with or without assistance.

We understand that moving into Angusfield House will be a considerable transition, but one we try to make feel as easy as possible. Your room is your own personal space, which is why we encourage you to personalise it if you like, by hanging your favourite pictures or bringing small pieces of furniture.

Description

We’re a diverse group, from different backgrounds and with different roles, but we all have something fundamental in common – every single one of us is passionate about care.

It’s almost like a sixth sense: people who are always on hand to help, but with enough empathy to know when to leave you be; people who don’t have favourites, and who are always busy creating the little moments of kindness that make a real difference to life here.

As well as our team of carers and nurses, we have an aligned GP practice with fortnightly visit and daily access for emergency evaluation and care. There is an extremely positive relationship with the practice. There are also two hairdressers who pamper our residents on a regular basis and a podiatrist who offers excellent care at the home. And everyone gets stuck in together – whether to serve breakfast or help out with an activity.

The Importance Of Meal Times

At Angusfield House, we love our food. We firmly believe that when you eat well, you live well too. This is a core part of our brighterkind philosophy of care, centring on good nutrition and the importance of mealtimes as a social occasion.

 Each day our chef prepares restaurant-style meals combining variety with a balanced diet and an emphasis on locally sourced ingredients. And we can cater to any dietary or health requirements, however complex.

Both suites have their own dining room – these are calm and peaceful spaces which give even our more frail residents the chance to come together and socialise. All meals are prepared by our Chef at the home – from popular favourites like fish and chips and haggis, to birthday parties and Sunday roast, we encourage our residents to make the most of living in a friendly environment. There will be plenty of people to meet, and a lot of stories to share.

Of course, when, where and who you eat with is entirely up to you. Friends and family can join you as often as you’d like (at a small charge) and our extras menu gives you the option to order snacks at any time of the day.

Activities Are So Important

A willingness to get involved and try new things is something we see time and again, once people are given the opportunity. We have a dedicated Recreation and Activities Coordinator who oversees everything, but all our staff regularly brainstorm new ideas, too. And our residents and their relatives can make suggestions at our regular activity meetings, so we can be sure everyone’s looking forward to something, every day.

Activities are person-centred, so rather than stick to a strict programme, we vary them every week: from music and movement, to therapy pets and skittles. And everything’s flexible – if it’s sunny we try and get outside, so everyone can appreciate the best of the day. We’ve built excellent links to the community, allowing residents to continue their lives outside the home with ease. We have our own minibus which is used extensively to take residents out on trips. We’re also visited by musicians and community groups on a regular basis.

Every brighterkind home now has a Magic Moments Club which provides a vast range of activities and fun things to do that are open to all of our residents:
