A dedicated team of specialists

We employ a broad spectrum of experts to ensure our residents are as active and healthy as possible. Every aspect of a resident’s wellbeing is attended to by a specialist professional. Our clinical, therapeutic and front-of-house staff work together collaboratively and co-ordinate their services to fit conveniently with daily activities.

Registered Nurses

Green tree Court is managed by a permanent team of registered nurses with extensive experience in a range of care environments. Whether devising individual care plans, making assessments or overseeing the safe, accurate administration of medication; highly qualified clinical staff diligently oversee day-to-day care for each resident.

Dedicated GP

Green tree Court has its own general practitioner, Dr. Duncan, who provides both scheduled appointments for residents in the privacy of their own rooms and is available for immediate support 24/7. Dr. Duncan is an integral part of our clinical team and works closely with residents’ own doctors and specialist consultants to ensure continuity of care.

Occupational Therapist (OT)

We have a full time occupational therapist (OT) to ensure all residents of Green Tree Court  are assessed and supported to help  increase and maintain their independence. Our OT works closely with our physiotherapist, beauty therapist and other staff to find the best solution for each resident, which might include exercises in our gym, provision of special equipment or other therapies such as massage.

Physiotherapist

Residents at Green Tree Court benefit from the skills and expertise of our physiotherapist. Whether recovering from injury or surgery, or simply maintaining mobility and cardiovascular health, our physiotherapist assesses residents’ needs and provides a programme of exercises tailored to each individual’s circumstances.

Holistic Therapist

We believe everyone deserves a little pampering.  Green Tree Court is a place to nourish the mind, body and soul. Residents enjoy the benefits of our relaxing spa with complimentary treatments from our holistic therapist, such as a deep tissue massage, reflexology, hot stone therapy or a  aromatherapy. Why? Because you’re worth it!

Hair & Beauty

We have a custom-built salon to ensure every resident at Green Tree Court looks and feels their very best.  Whether you want your hair washed and styled, a pedicure or a manicure; we have patient, qualified staff to attend to your needs.

Dementia care

If you’re looking for a specialist dementia care home for you or a loved one, you’ll find reassuring expertise and understanding at Green Tree Court.

Setting the ‘Gold Standard’ in dementia care homes

From our earliest architectural blueprints for Green Tree Court, we worked in partnership with the renowned experts at the Dementia Services Development Centre (DSDC) at Stirling University.

Together, we have designed and refined every aspect of our home to create a safe, welcoming and stress-free environment for residents with dementia. Special features includes subtle details in the décor that can make all the difference to day-to-day life. For example, the colours we have used have been carefully thought through to reduce confusion or indicate clearly where there’s a door or toilet. There are innovative features too, such as memory boxes containing familiar personal effects to help our residents identify their private room.

It’s not just the building and furnishings that are dementia-friendly. Our best-practice approach to personalised care for people living with dementia includes organising one-to-one and group activities. This helps maintain social interaction and give a renewed sense of purpose to our residents – essential for emotional well-being. All our staff, whatever their role, also undertake Dementia Friends training, so they are informed, compassionate and understanding.

The DSDC has recently made an independent assessment of our dementia facilities. They awarded Green Tree Court’s ‘Willow’ ward a nearly perfect score of 94%, making us one of only a handful of homes in the world to be accredited with the Stirling Gold Standard.
