Thistle House

119 Americanmuir Road, Dundee, DD3 9AG

Gender: Mixed

Age: 18+

Beds: 10

We are delighted to announce that subject to registration, Thistle House will be relocating from Americanmuir Road to Fairfield Road, Broughty Ferry in Dundee in 2021. The new service will be a residential care home with nursing for adults with learning disabilities and complex needs. The team of nurses and support workers also support those with behaviours that may challenge, as well as those who have associated mental health needs.

The service delivers 24 hour care and support within a structured environment. Everyone has their own en-suite bedroom which they are encouraged to personalise to suit their own personal style. In addition there is a studio apartment for one individual which has been created to provide a more independent living environment. This apartment, with its own front door, provides a care pathway from the main house to an environment that focuses on and promotes greater independence for moving on to a supported living setting.

The service features a number of communal areas including lounge, dining room, activity room as well as lovely gardens which include outdoor seating.

The individuals at Thistle House may be stepping down from a hospital provision or they may need a more robust package of care than can be provided in a supported living service. Each resident receives an individualised care and support plan which is tailored to their own needs. This helps enable them to achieve successful community living and break any cycles of placement breakdown.

Supporting individuals safely during lockdown at Thistle House

The Thistle House team have been getting creative to keep the activity timetable exciting for the residents at the service. Under the Covid restrictions they’ve been unable to do some of the community activities that they would usually be doing, and so the team have come up with some site based fun instead!
