Pentland View Care Home in Thurso
Pentland View is Located on the outskirts of the market town of Thurso. The home overlooks Thurso Bay, close to the fishing and ferry port of Scrabster. A short drive brings you to the famous John o' Groats and the late Queen Mother's favourite summer retreat, the Castle of Mey.
Our home is purpose-built. We have beautiful landscaped gardens, which are wheelchair accessible and secure for residents. All accommodation is on one level, designed to support people who need nursing care, respite care and people living with dementia. Some of our rooms have en-suite toilet facilities.
The home's specialist Memory Lane Community utilises a careful blend of skills and techniques developed by leading experts in the field of dementia care, incorporating person-centred design in its use of colour and cues to help individuals navigate through the home, whilst thoughtful interior design features, such us adapted crockery and tableware assists with reminiscence. Communities are broken up into separate units with a family feel so people can feel safe and comfortable. Care is focused on independence, dignity and choice, with a person-centred approach. Staffing levels reflect the needs of residents, and people living with dementia are offered a range of activities to help preserve life skills, support interactions and retain a sense of purpose and selfhood.
Our aims include supporting residents’ choice to promote individuality, privacy, dignity and independence. Care planning and activities linked to what assessments tell us about individual likes and dislikes are very important. We employ an activities coordinator but all staff support her, so activities include social chat, helping with daily chores and developing life histories as well as knitting and reading groups, arts and crafts, exercises, baking, gardening, walking and outings.
It’s always best to visit a home to see for yourself. We welcome visitors.
