We are very lucky at Randolph Hill, Dunblane to enjoy a specially-designed building, completed in 2006. Accessibility, light, a sense of space, fresh decor and beautifully landscaped gardens make this an ideal place for older people.
Our 60 rooms are arranged in units of ten, with each group of ten residents sharing their own lounge and dining room. This makes for a warm and homely atmosphere where residents can form friendships and meet regularly.
Rooms can be personalised by the resident with their choice of wall colours and soft furnishings, and we encourage personal mementos and furniture, if space allows. As long as the layout gives us space to nurse in, we’ll do our best to make rooms as homely and familiar as possible.
Each bedroom has an ensuite shower room. There is a nurse call, TV (including Sky) and a telephone and Internet point in every bedroom, with WiFi available throughout the home.
All of the lounges have wide screen TVs and there are pantry kitchens off every dining room. We encourage families to make themselves at home and put the kettle on. The lounges on the ground floor have patio doors leading out to the residents’ garden, where pretty, winding paths give access to the lawn and flower beds.
All areas are wheelchair friendly and specifically designed to support people with dementia.
We also understand that maintaining a sense of privacy and dignity is fundamental to enjoying life at Randolph Hill, Dunblane. That’s why we take something as simple as laundry so seriously: fresh towels are supplied after each use and we label all clothes and make sure they are returned clean and pressed.
We have a hair salon in the home and regular visits from an aromatherapist ─ we believe that relaxing and looking your best is important, even more so for older people.
Friends and relatives are encouraged to visit as often as possible, and to make visitors welcome there are small kitchens so you can make your own tea and coffee. Our chef is a very accomplished baker and there’s usually an array of homemade treats for visitors too!
