The Service and Facilities

Montrose can accommodate
and care for people in the
following categories:
Old Age not falling within any
other category (OP) for Twenty
One (21) residents of both sexes.

Montrose is registered to provide
personal social care to its
residents, who may be male or
female over the age of sixty five.
Montrose is not a nursing home
and if any resident requires any
nursing care this will be provided
by the local district nursing
service. If the needs of the
resident warrant nursing
care, then a referral to a nursing
home may become necessary.

Residents can remain with their own General Practitioner, but where a resident comes from out of the area, arrangements can be made to join the list of a local practice.

A hairdresser visits the home every week and undertakes all aspects of hairdressing for both our male and female residents.

A chiropodist visits the home every two months. A massage therapy and yoga session takes place on a monthly basis and the therapist is available privately if required.

However these services are not included within the fees and will be paid to the operators at the time of the service. Personal toiletries will also need to be supplied.

Facilities provided within Montrose
ontrose operates over two floors, although there is an attic floor used as offices and store rooms. All floors are connected by a staircase and a passenger lift. A menu is produced and displayed. Laundry is collected from the resident’s room and returned within 48 hours washed and ironed. All clothes needing dry cleaning will remain in rooms to be collected by relatives. All clothing must be labelled with the resident’s name.

Montrose provides 21 single bedrooms, fourteen of which have en suite bathrooms, and one has a shower. All rooms have wash hand basins. There are three assisted baths, each with a toilet. There is also a cloakroom on the ground floor.
