Health care at Portobello Place

First and foremost at Portobello Place, our residents’ health and wellbeing is front and centre of everything we do. The health care team is therefore trained to support everyone in what they need and in a way they would like. Everything is documented using state-of-the-art electronic care planning.

Registered Nurse

Here at Portobello Place Care home, we have regular visits from a Registered Nurse, on hand to help all of our residents with any health questions or issues they may have.


The comfort of our residents is ensured by maintaining a watch on their mobility, posture and noting patterns and any issues which occur. Each resident will need individual programmes and our physiotherapist is here to make sure everyone remains mobile and comfortable.


Regular podiatry checks and advice on care are ongoing. Maintaining good foot health is essential and can also help identify any other issues which residents may experience. A holistic approach to healthcare starts with the feet.


Health and Fitness

If you have enjoyed an active life, it is important to keep it up into later life as part of an overall fitness plan. If you have not been so active, it is never too late to start and to feel the benefits to your overall life.

Our research tells us that heightened fitness and higher energy as a person ages both help in reducing falls and can have an effect in staving off dementia.

As well as low impact exercise equipment, our residents regularly enjoy the social scene that is group yoga and other classes.
