Our programme of events changes to meet the needs of older people using the service, but our emphasis is always to provide stimulating activities, outings, entertainment, home cooking and opportunities for social contact. All wtihin a comfortable environment and supported by friendly, experienced staff.

Respite care
To enable carers to have a break, or cope with unforeseen circumstances, we offer respite care at Balmedie House. We aim to continue the daily routine enjoyed at home as far as possible, as well as making this an opportunity for a break.

Some older people choose to use day care regularly with occasional respite care as part of their package of care, and we’re happy to accommodate wherever possible.
