A high dependency unit for people with greater needs... Find out more
Dorward House aims to provide high quality mainstream care, respite facilities, and high dependency care for vulnerable older people.
We have 28 mainstream bedrooms, all with en-suite facilities, a respite unit with fully en-suite bedrooms, and an eight place fully en-suite high dependency unit (Fairview) for people who are physically or mentally more frail.
It sits in beautiful grounds and there are rainbow seats around the garden as well as paved areas for walking. We also have a summer house situated in the grounds, and we are conveniently situated close to all amenities in Montrose. We actively encourage people to access shops, cafés, local community links and, of course, one of the finest beaches in Scotland.
