Life at Whim Hall Care Centre
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 practises.
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.

My mum had been a resident at The Grove since last September and I would just like to say how much she enjoyed it there.
She was kept clean and well-fed.She always said that the meals were lovely couldn’t ask for better.She had clean clothes on everyday.
The staff were always kind and pleasant.When I visited every day they always opened the door to me with a warm welcome and a smile.
Nothing was too much trouble for them.When mum took ill in May they were very concerned, sent for the doctor when he was needed.They couldn’t do enough for her or me while I stayed with her.The staff really did look after her in her final days.My brother and I cannot thank the staff enough for their kindness and thoughtfulness.
