Situated in a private and peaceful location in Scarborough, Dunollie Residential and Nursing Home benefits from being only ten minutes away from the town centre and five minutes from the seafront.
At Dunollie we provide a range of residential, nursing, dementia, palliative and respite care for older people in a caring, friendly and outstanding environment. Each person we support is treated as an individual and we develop a tailored care plan to meet their specific needs, choices and wishes.
The unique architectural design of Dunollie helps create an impressive living environment. There are 50 bedrooms and many have en-suite toilet facilities. At Dunollie we have a number of onsite facilities including a hairdressing salon, established gardens with wheelchair access and patio areas where people can sit and relax during the spring and summer months. Our lounges and dining room provide impressive locations where residents can relax and mix with each other. A modern glass extension bridge provides access to the main building.
Our care team is on-hand 24 hours a day, every day of the year and staff are dedicated to delivering care with kindness.
To ensure we continue to provide the best standards of care and support to our residents, we recruit and train only the best staff.
Whilst they receive a variety of on-going training to ensure their skills remain up-to-date, along with an enhanced DBS check (formerly CRB), it is their dedication to our residents which makes them truly special.
We work in close partnership with GP’s and other health professionals and specialist services.
We enable people to maintain lifestyles that are as similar as possible to those enjoyed at home whilst encouraging 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 in special activities, events and open days.
The activities offered are tailored to our residents’ individual choices and interests. Residents can choose to take part in a wide variety of social and leisure activities including chair-based exercise classes, bingo and trips out. We also have regular entertainers that provide a variety of engaging experiences for residents, their relatives and friends.
We understand that people bring with them a life story of achievements, events and life experiences. We use such information to create a tailored care package for each individual’s specific needs.
We ensure that our person-centred assessments are all tailored to the whole person and we will look at what people can do, not just what they need assistance with. Most importantly we ensure that the individual themselves and their loved ones help us to put together a bespoke plan of care. We appreciate how difficult the decision is to move into permanent or even short stay care and we aim to make this transition as easy as possible.
Meals times are an important part of the day at Dunollie. Our chef provides wholesome, home-cooked food, cakes and snacks throughout the day and happily accommodates all dietary preferences and requirements. And visitors are welcome to join us for meals.
