Blair House Care Home
Located in Newtownards, Blair House (formerly part of Amore Care) supports people with physical needs who require assistance and care. The homely and comfortable environment enables us to provide person-centred care tailored specifically to the needs of our residents.
The care home has been designed to meet the needs of older people with comfortable lounge and dining areas and includes a fabulous arts and activities room. Many rooms within the home have views of Scrabo Tower and the attractive, enclosed gardens and patio provide residents with a relaxing, safe place to sit and enjoy the outdoors.
Activities are a key part of the daily life at Blair House care home. Our activities co-ordinators assist in developing individual activity schedules tailored to the personal lives and interests of residents in each home. With our staff on hand at all times, each activity is designed to not only mentally stimulate and physically motivate our residents, but to enhance their quality of life and wellbeing.
The activities co-ordinators work alongside care staff to get to know each and every resident, and take pride in listening, understanding and responding to their needs. All our activities and care staff encourage residents to engage in meaningful and varied activities.
