Abercorn is a purpose-built care home and specialises in providing residential, nursing and dementia care for older people. Located in Hamilton, the home has a friendly and welcoming environment and we focus on enabling people to maintain their independence.
We enable people to maintain lifestyles that are as similar as possible to those enjoyed at home. We encourage regular interaction with the local community, including contact with friends, family and local groups. We encourage friends and family to be involved through regular visits and participation at special activities, events and open days.
A wide variety of leisure, social and recreational activities are organised by our activities co-ordinator. The activities offered are very much based on individual choice and interest. The extensive range of leisure activities includes one-to-one hobby sessions, shopping trips, in house entertainment and excursions in our own mini-bus.
Our friendly and experienced team of nurses, carers and domestic staff provide tailored care 24 hours a day and are supported by a very experienced manager who is also a qualified nurse. In addition to providing 24 hour nursing care we also offer respite and short stay care.
Meals times are an important part of the day. Our experienced catering staff prepare a varied menu of fresh home cooked food every day and we cater for individual likes and dislikes from a cultural, religious or choice perspective.
