I am an experience care home manager in Broughty Ferry Dundee. Balcarres Care Home is a residential care home, with 36 rooms for occupancy, that used to be a private house but has been converted into a Care Home. Across 300 care homes in the UK, BUPA offer both short and long term residential and nursing care services supporting frail and elderly, dementia and specialist care needs.

BESiDE’s research proposal addresses the investigation of the ‘Quality of the Environment’ and we are very keen to be involved with this, as we hope the findings from the research will be used to improve the resident’s environment. I am particularly interested in how appropriate technology can solve the problems experienced by our residents and how such factors of independence, wellbeing and mobility can be supported within our home.
