Where you’ll work

 

In one of the gardens, we have sensory planting area and a stunning mural featuring a loch surrounded by poppies, commemorating the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War. This is close to the heart of many of our residents and we were proud to welcome people from the local community into our nursing home for its grand unveiling. In the dementia garden, we have decking, seasonal plants and a bus stop donated by the local council. Many items in the gardens and home have been bought with a generous donation from a company in nearby Kingswells, as well as money raised through fundraising events and donations from residents, staff and loved ones.
