About Deeside Care Home

Located in the pleasant town of Aberdeen, Deeside Care Home is an award-winning care home. Deeside provides outstanding Nursing, Residential, Dementia and Respite Care to all of its residents, as well as an unwavering support to their families and loved ones.

We recognise that every one of our residents is special, and we strive to provide each and every one of them with a personalised living and care experience. Deeside Care Home was designed with you in mind, so you can rest assured that we will go above and beyond to guarantee that all of our residents are completely comfortable when they stay with us at Deeside.

Our Values at Deeside

We value every one of our residents at Deeside Care Home and the amazing lives they lead. That’s why, we make it our duty to ensure that no matter what, all of our residents receive the care, love, and attention they deserve. Our staff work closely with residents and their loved ones so we can give the appropriate level of assistance for their circumstances. We’re here to help anytime you need it, whether you need a friendly face to talk to or just a little additional reassurance while staying at Deeside.

Deeside was built with the needs of our residents at the forefront and we strive to create a friendly environment in which visitors and residents both feel like they are members of the family. We take great pride in delivering the finest possible care for our residents, and offering expert guidance to their families is fundamental to providing our residents with the very best care.

We’ve recognised and understood the importance of working together as a team to make our residents days better ever since we first opened our doors. From the outset, we’ve always placed a strong emphasis on building relationships between staff, residents, and their loved ones, which has helped us to have a much better understanding of our residents than we could have ever dreamed of.

What’s more is that it has enabled us to develop individualised care plans and solutions for each and every one of our residents, which has been critical to our continued success. To be able to deliver person-centred care is of the utmost importance to us, as we recognise every person who stays with us at Deeside has a unique set of requirements and we feel strongly about making sure we meet every single one of them.

We embrace diversity here at Deeside, and really value the abilities of each of our residents. We want to emphasise the strengths that each of them can bring to the table. At Deeside, we want to encourage all of our residents to retain independence, dignity, and competency. This is why we are pleased to provide individualised care for all of our residents.

We take great pride in designing homes where our residents have total access to a variety of amenities, which are guaranteed to ensure that their days are filled with joy, and that their lives remain enriched. Deeside Care Home is committed to ensuring that our residents continue to live the best lives they possibly can, as well as assisting their relatives, friends and loved ones in any and every way.

Sense of Freedom

We know that deciding to move into a care home is a difficult decision to make. However, we don’t see why our residents’ sense of freedom should vanish, whether you’re considering moving in yourself or on behalf of a loved one. We want to make sure you’re still entirely able to do the things you enjoy, in the same way that you always do them. Everyone deserves a comfortable and dignified life, which is why it’s one of Deeside’s core values.

Care Tailored to You

Every single one of our Deeside residents is an original, so why should their healthcare be any different? We are so proud of the care we give to each of our residents, as well as the individualised care plans we develop to ensure they’re getting the very best care they can. Getting to know all of our residents on a one-on-one basis is always a huge honour for us, and it allows us to give unparalleled around-the-clock care.
