Our policy is to operate with the minimum of restrictions so that residents may live as independently as possible. Recognising the importance of maintaining a routine of activity and recreation, Balmanno House employs three Activity Organisers to ensure that activities are tailored to the needs and tastes of individual residents. To this end there is also a specially adapted minibus to facilitate safe and comfortable travel and regular lists of outings and activities are published and displayed prominently.
Trips often include visits to museums, galleries, theatres and other social events as well as musical evenings and recreational activities hosted in Balmanno House itself.
Visitors are always welcome at Balmanno House and there are tea and coffee making facilities in the coffee lounge for residents and visitors alike. Family meals can be catered for by prior arrangement, with residents invited to celebrate their birthday by choosing the daily menu.
We place a great deal of emphasis on providing nutritious, balanced meals that cater to each resident’s preferences and dietary requirements. Indeed, our chefs pride themselves on preparing a wide range of home cooked and traditional menus that are served for the convenience and enjoyment of the residents.
