Life at Beechgrove

At Beechgrove Care Home we believe in creating true home-from-home environment: our dedicated staff are delighted to cater for your every need. We've highlighted some key information below on life at Beechgrove - however, if you would like any further information please don't hesitate to get in touch.


We pride ourselves on the high standard of appetising meals served, all prepared from fresh produce by our qualified catering staff. 

Good, nutritious food and drink are very important in keeping and improving your health.  Our staff will soon get to know your food preferences and any dietary needs which are recorded in your personal care plan.  Menus are displayed daily and offer an extensive choice for each meal with a selection of home baking served daily. 

Our breakfast, three course dinner, high tea and home baking, combine to offer a splendid variety of choice.

Breakfast is served between 8am – 10am in the dining room
Lunch is served at 12.30pm in the dining room
High tea is served at 5.30pm in the dining room

Beverages and snacks are served throughout the day in the lounge areas.  Room service is also available.


Entertainment appealing to a wide variety of taste is provided regularly.  There is a comprehensive daily programme of activities which are held within the home and Beechgrove has strong links with the local community.  Concerts are held regularly including Christmas, Easter, St Andrews Day and any other memorable occasions not forgetting our national bard, Robert Burns.

Birthdays are celebrated and you will receive a complimentary birthday cake and gift.  Private functions can also be arranged.

To add to the various services and activities already mentioned the home has the availability to hire a mini bus to take residents out, which is fully equipped to accommodate residents in wheelchairs.  Our entertainments officer is responsible for planning and directing most recreational activities. 


A qualified resident hairdresser visits the home twice weekly.  Prices for this service are displayed on the notice board.  You are free to have a hairdresser of your choice to visit the home or you may prefer to attend a hairdressing establishment.


A wide selection of reading material can be found in our well-stocked library.  Large print books are available and changed regularly.

Newspapers & Journals

A wide selection of newspapers and journals are delivered to the home daily.  Arrangements can also be made to have your own newspaper or journal delivered.


Incoming letters and parcels are delivered daily.  Residents who are unable to post their own mail should discuss alternative arrangements with the manager.


If you require a telephone in your own room, arrangements can be made for a separate line to be installed.


We welcome visitors at any time of the day.  For reasons of security, it is helpful to know if any visitors are expected after 9pm.


Personal items of clothing are laundered and returned to your room from our own in-house laundry.  It is important that all clothing is marked clearly with your name prior to admission.  Clothing should be able to be machine washed and tumble dried
