Whim Hall Care Centre

Local day centre visits
I would like to introduce you to our beautiful home Whim Hall. Whim Hall is an 18th Century Manor House that was built by the Duke of Argyll and, is set amidst 20 acres of striking country woodland in the Scottish Borders. You will find that the grounds surrounding Whim Hall reflect the ambiance which you would expect from country life. The gardens have various seated areas for residents and their relatives to sit, relax and enjoy the vibrant colours, smells and sounds which surround them. The Care Home has 2 separate units. Tweed Unit is purpose built and meets the needs of 22 frail elderly residents with Dementia and Whim which is a residential unit.
This historic setting has been specially adapted to provide dedicated specialist care which is delivered to a high standard. The staff at Whim Hall are committed to delivering care which is tailored to each individual residents needs and, because we actively meet the individual needs of each of our residents they are able to exercise choice in determining the pattern of their lives. Staff are suitably trained and kept up to date with current practices.
Whim Hall is dedicated in helping to improve the environment, its self sufficiency status and meaningful activities for the residents – we have recently introduced a re-cycle bin, chickens and an allotment for growing vegetables. The introduction of themed corridors and “doll therapy” aids with the sensory stimulation of those residents in Tweed Unit, with the focus of Whim Unit being its self contained flats to help residents develop their own life skills in a safe, secure and sociable environment.

OUR QUALITY OF CARE
At St Philips Care we give people a sense of place and somewhere they really love to live, making each of our homes fun, friendly and comfortable places to be.
As a group of professional carers, we specialize in the health and well being of people from all walks of life and all ages, and take enormous pride in the high levels of care that we deliver.
Our homes offer a range of support for adult and elderly people whether that is for residential, dementia, mental health or respite care. We pride ourselves on our experienced, highly trained teams which include carers, support staff, and registered nurses and the group offers all of our teams the resources to meet our residents’ daily needs.
PERSONALISED CARE PLANS
St Philips Care focuses each and every care plan on the individual, taking into consideration their personal requirements and tastes.
We take time out to know and understand our residents even before they move in, not only by talking to them but also by including their family and friends during their stay to make sure that we have the best possible plan tailored to each individual.
We consider not only care aspects but also personal interests, social life, working life, and companionships. Special consideration is given to their personal space and bedroom, their favourite meals and dinner choices, understanding, monitoring and developing a personal care plan and generally keeping good channels of communication with family and friends at all times.
