Glenbervie Care Home is a purpose built care located in Larbert. The home was opened in December, 2016 and is home to 33 frail and elderly residents (65 and over) and 26 adults (18-65). The home, located in Glenbervie Business Park, has excellent road and rail links and is one mile from Forth Valley Royal Hospital.
The home has spacious rooms with ensuite showers. The rooms each have two windows to allow more natural light to enter and have electric profiling beds with pressure relieving matresses.
The home is decorated to a high standard including artwork depicting local highlights such as the Kelpies and local castles and areas of interest.
The home also has some ‘extra’ spaces not usually found in care homes such as a bistro and a pub for the use of residents and relatives. The home also has a large training room on site where our in-house and external training can be delivered.
The home is well resourced with care assistants, senior carers, registered nurses, domestic staff, kitchen staff and supernumerary management. Further the home has a full-time administrator, full time in house training officer, two full time handy-men and two full-time activity co-ordinators.
The home utilises digital technology for care-planning allowing carers to record their daily work with residents on i-pods quickly and efficiently. We utilise a digital electronic administration system which helps to reduce potential drug errors. Both these digital sysgtem make the management auditing process simpler as access is available from any desktop or laptop.
