Why Choose Rowallan House?

A real home

Rowallan House is a real home where you or your loved one can live a rich and fulfilling life. Residents are encouraged to decorate their rooms with personal touches and items so they feel comfortable and at home. Visitors are welcome, and you’ll make new friends too.

Packed activities

We have a packed activities schedule, so there are always plenty of fun things going on to choose from. Our sensory room is specially designed to give people with dementia a safe and relaxing space, and we run engaging activities tailored around those with complex needs.

Dedicated carers

Our team of dedicated carers have been with us for years. We don’t use agency staff, so our care is consistent and we’re like a second family for your loved one. Our carers build close bonds with residents and take the time to learn everyone’s likes, dislikes and hobbies.

Personalised care

Care is personalised for each resident and we have regular support from district nurses. They can perform tasks such as changing dressings or administering insulin to treat people at our home so they don’t need to make unnecessary hospital visits.
