Balhousie Care Group Ltd

Balhousie Care Group aims to become the most admired and respected provider of residential and nursing care in Scotland. The group was founded in 1991 by Chairman Tony Banks, who recognised that the number of good care facilities available in the North-east at the time was limited and that the standards in some homes were below normal expectations. Tony decided this was an opportunity to fill the void by opening a residential and nursing care homes that provided undisputed excellence by way of the facility itself, the staff it employs, the management ethics, and most importantly, the level of genuine care that would aim to meet the expectations of both residents and family members. Balhousie Care Group now cares for more than 1,100 residents in 27 homes across Aberdeenshire, Angus, Dundee and Perthshire. For more information, please visit
