About Rubislaw Park

Rubislaw Park is an award-winning care home and nursing facility in Aberdeen’s West End. Rubislaw Park delivers exceptional Residential, Nursing, Dementia, and Respite Care to each and every one of its residents, as well as offering constant support to their loved ones.

We recognise that every one of our residents is unique, and we endeavour to provide a tailored living and care experience for them. Rubislaw Park was created with you in mind, and you can be confident in the knowledge that we will go above and beyond to ensure that our residents are entirely satisfied with every part of their stay.

Our Values at Rubislaw Park

At Rubislaw Park, we value each and every one of our residents and the extraordinary lives they lead. That’s why, it’s our mission to ensure that all of our residents receive the best levels of care, love and attention that they need from our highly-skilled teams no matter what. 

Our teams work very closely with the residents, their friends and their family members to guarantee that everyone is getting the perfect level of support for their situation. If you’re looking for a friendly face to talk to, or just need that little bit of extra reassurance, we’re here to lend a helping hand whenever you need it. 

We endeavour to create a welcoming atmosphere in our home, one where people feel like they’re really part of the family. Providing our residents with the best care possible is our priority, and providing expert direction and support to their relatives is essential to the caring process.

Ever since Rubislaw Park’s doors first opened, we understood the importance of working together as a team to make someone’s day better. Having a clear focus on nurturing relationships between the staff, residents and loved ones from the very beginning has allowed us to understand our residents better than we could’ve ever imagined. 

This has allowed us to create personalised care plans for each and every one of our residents, which has been key to our ongoing success. We take great pleasure in creating a home where our residents have complete access to a wide range of facilities that are sure to fulfil their days and enrich their lives.  

We recognise each resident’s diversity and talents, and our values highlight the strengths that every one of them can bring to the table. We focus on independence, maintaining dignity, and providing expert individualised care to all of our residents. It is crucial to us that our residents live their best lives while also supporting their family and friends.

Independence & Dignity 

We understand that making the choice to move into a care home can be a very emotional one. Whether you’re thinking of moving in yourself, or you’re looking on behalf of a loved one, we don’t see why our residents’ sense of independence should disappear. We want to make sure that you’re still doing the things you love, just how you would usually do them. Everyone has a right to a comfortable and dignified life, which is why it’s one of our core values here at Rubislaw Park.

Personalised Care

Every one of our residents at Rubislaw Park is so very unique, so why should the care that they receive be any different? We take pride in the care we provide to each and every one of our residents, as well as the personalised care plans we create. Getting to know all of our residents on a one-to-one basis is always a huge privilege for us, and allows us to provide round-the-clock care like no one else.
