Daily life

Keeping things personal

At Hawkhill House Nursing Home

The lovley surroundings at Hawkhill House Nursing Home are matched by the standard of care our team brings residents. We love learning as much as we can about the people we care for, so your loved one’s time is tailored to their individual needs, interests and preferences. This can be as small as knowing when they like to wake up, to how they like their tea, and everything in between.

We give as much independence as possible, letting individuals choose how to run the home and if they prefer dinner in front of the TV, or even dusting their own room, we’ll make it happen. Just as putting their own stamp on their bedroom, we’ll help them to personalise it with the things they love.

Keep doing what you love

At Hawkhill House Nursing Home, there’s something to tickle everyone’s fancy – from the craft room to the hair salon, our packed schedule of events and activities, to picnics in the stunning grounds. And if residents prefer to spend one-on-one time with a member of the team, they can read the paper, pop to the shops or have a pint in the local pub. We have strong connections with the Milltimber community, many of our residents invite them to join in our activities or even run their own here.

You'll be in good company this spring

Book a respite stay for peace of mind

Over four million older people in the UK say they feel lonely and lack the friendship and support which we all need. Our respite and permanent stays offer the chance to see some new faces and try out some new things with as much or as little support as you need.

During this unprecedented time, many residents have chosen us for peace of mind so they feel safe in the knowledge that care and support is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week should they need it, as well as staying connected. Whether you're looking for permanent care or a respite stay, ask us about our latest availability in our homes and the extra things we are doing to keep our residents, families and teams safe.

Meet the Manager

Mel Shearer

Since qualifying as a Nurse in 1991, I’ve worked in a variety of roles – both with the NHS and around the world. In 2009 I accepted a senior nurse post and later became the deputy manager of an Acquired Brain Injury Unit, which was community based and the first of its kind in Aberdeen. In 2013 I moved into care home management, still in the Aberdeen area, and became the Home Manager at Hawkhill House in 2015.

I enjoy the challenges and the diversity of what I do – I can be dealing with many different issues on a day-to-day basis. I really like to be able to make a difference in someone’s life, and my career allows me to do this every day. I am passionate about making sure our residents are happy and comfortable, providing the support they need to maintain their independence and enhance their quality of life.

I take responsibility for the day to day running of all aspects of the home ensuring the care we provide to the residents are of high quality and are person-centred. I take a very active approach in the skills and development of my team, enabling them to achieve their best potential and deliver great care. I work very closely with senior management to ensure that the home is compliant with all regulatory requirements.
