A special thank you to all the residents friends and family who attended our recent Family Night gathering in the house. Feedback from the night which included residents family members and friends stated it was a very informative evening with a relaxing atmosphere and beautiful tea.
Abbeyfield Strathaven had our annual visit from the Care Inspectorate in which we received a very good scoring for each category inspected. The visit went perfectly with the inspector being more than pleased with the day to day running of Abbeyfield House that we have been scored Very Good (5's) out of a possible 6. We will now be working harder than ever to strive to achieve that perfect 6.
Our latest care inspectorate report is now available to view.
With the completion of the programmed refurbishment of our existing residents accommodation, we are excited to announce a planned quarter million pound extension to the house beginning soon. The Jubilee project will add additional en-suite rooms as well as a new lounge, dining room, family room, laundry and kitchen.
