Eastbank rated number one care home in Scotland as it completes transformative refurbishment and upgThis spring Eastbank care home in Shettleston, Glasgow has had lots to celebrate including being crowned number one in Scotland, as voted for by Residents and Relatives, as well as benefitting from an exciting 180k refurbishment and upgrade resulting from a major investment programme launched by owners HC-One.

Eastbank received an overall rating of 10/10 based on independent reviews on the UK’s leading care home directory and comparison website, Carehome.co.uk, in recognition of the high standards of care provided at the home – which provides nursing and nursing dementia services for the local community. 

One recent Daughter of Resident, (Carehome.co.uk, February 2023), stated:

“Mum has been here since September 2022. The facilities are excellent, cannot do enough for mum and she is very happy here and says she is not moving.”

This comes as the 65-bed, friendly care home has recently completed a refurbishment programme where Residents are able to enjoy sustainable, modernised and enhanced living environments - including upgrades lounges, dining rooms and bedrooms.

The nursing and nursing dementia care home refurbishment forms part of HC-One’s £54.5 million refurbishment and upgrade programme. This programme will benefit 221 HC-One homes, including Eastbank and forms part of HC-One’s mission to be the UK’s first choice care provider in the communities it serves. 

As the largest care home refurbishment programme in the UK, HC-One is transforming its homes for the benefit of the Residents and Colleagues who live and work in them, and for the local communities they serve. The upgrades mean that every HC-One home will be equipped to meet the needs of an ageing population with increasingly complex care needs – including dementia care needs.

The works at Eastbank began in September 2022 and completed in February 2023 – no Residents were impacted by the works.

Megan Allan, HC-One’s Area Director said: 

“We are committed to fostering an environment that really feels like home, and d├ęcor and facilities are an important part of this. We’re really excited that the plans for Eastbank Care Home has now been safely completed. We look forward to families and friends visiting the home and seeing the end result. I am also delighted that Eastbank have been announced as a number one of the Carehome.co.uk Top 20 Award 2023 in Scotland based on independent reviews by those using our services over the past year.  ”
