Care at Rubislaw

At Rubislaw Park we are proud to provide the highest standard of care for all of our Residents.

Nursing Care

We provide twenty-four hour nursing care for our residents. Our experienced and dedicated staff enable us to nurse those with physical disabilities, those who need end of life care or those with high dependency needs, and those who become infirm.

Home Manager Michelle Paterson is supported by professional qualified nurses and care assistants, as well as being a nurse herself. Nursing care is delivered using a method known as key nursing.  Each resident is allocated a nurse who will soon become a familiar face and will answer any queries or anxieties you or your relatives may have.  In the absence of your nurse, another member of staff known as a key worker will care for you.

Dementia Care

We are proud to specialise in Dementia Care, with our lower ground floor designed to provide a secure, caring and friendly environment for those with dementia. It features Dementia friendly interiors and fixings with high contrasting colours, private garden area and all in all comfortable surrounding for residents. Our gardens in particular provide a stimulating space where residents can walk with purpose and enjoy being outdoors.

Our staff are fully trained and qualified to deal with all aspects of dementia. Our staff treat all of our residents as individuals and tailor care around their needs. Together with family and loved ones we get to know our residents in order to create an accurate picture of their life, so that we can ensure their on-going happiness, comfort and wellbeing.

We also offer a range of activities and alternative therapies that are designed to help people with memory impairment: our Specialist Activity Coordinators are able to work with those at all stages of dementia. Our open visiting hours mean that Residents' families are welcome at all times. We are also working on new ways to involve families and friends on a daily basis.

Activities and Alternative Therapies

Our activities coordinator will plan and carry out seasonal events will all our residents, in addition to regular reminiscence therapy. 

Alternative Therapies at Rubislaw Park are something we are always developing; our Spa Area, and Hair and Beauty Salon will play a key part in this. With treatment beds and nail station we can offer a relaxing therapy suited to each resident’s needs.

The use of WIFI throughout the home will allow us to use iPads, iMacs and technology as therapy for our residents, in addition to providing another great way to be in touch with family.

Respite Care

At Rubislaw Park  we know that sometimes everyone needs a time out. Whether you care for a loved one, or need a break yourself, you can truly relax in knowing that a safe, welcoming environment awaits.

Respite care is ideal for those looking for convalescence, either following a hospital stay or an illness. Many people also arrange a trial stay as a temporary resident to see if the home is the right choice for them as their new home. 

At Rubislaw we make sure each of our residents enjoy a welcoming and enjoyable stay, whether it’s on a short or long term basis. We are committed to providing the care and support you need to get back on your feet.
