Getting Out and About in Benderloch

Benderloch is the ideal place to live for those who love to be in a peaceful setting away from a busy town or city. Our home couldn’t be positioned in a more quiet, picturesque part of the highlands. Residents can however take a day trip out into the nearest town of Oban to visit the attractions, shops and eateries on offer. 

Not too far from Etive House is Dunollie Musuem, Castle and Grounds, where visitors and family members can immerse themselves in the history of Clan MacDougall. There are charming woodland grounds, a museum displaying a social history collection and castle ruins offering beautiful views across Oban Bay. Ganavan Sands is a fantastic spot to relax in the summer months with stunning white sands and views of the mountain tops from afar.

If residents are willing to travel a bit further afield, Arkinglas Woodland Gardens is a truly stunning place to walk within the impressively landscaped grounds or take a private tour of the historic mansion perched on the edge of Loch Fyne.

Residential Care

Residential care in Benderloch by Oban is most suitable for residents who require additional help with their everyday tasks due to fragility, issues with mobility, sensory impairment and those showing early symptoms of a health condition. Our aim is to improve residents’ well-being and enable them to do the things that bring them the most joy.

Residents can benefit from group living, free from any housekeeping chores and the things that bring stress to someone’s life. Our support team are on hand to give their assistance at any time of day so that residents can flourish within their environment and live a full life each day.

Dementia Care

Etive House provides specialist dementia care to people with Dementia. Our devoted team gives the support and attention residents need to ensure their happiness, comfort, and overall well-being, and we understand that there is no one size fits all approach to dementia care. 

From the engaging activities on offer to the way our home has been furnished, our home accommodates the needs of residents living with dementia. Our team goes above and beyond to ensure symptoms associated with the condition are alleviated as much as possible.

Respite Care

For those requiring short-term care, respite care is the best solution. A temporary stay to Etive House Care Home will provide residents with a pleasant stay until they get back on their feet, ensuring the care received is always personalised and effective.

Our respite care option is ideal for those who need a place to rest for a period of time since recovering from an operation or illness. Respite care can also be used as a way of trialling a care home for a few weeks to get a true feel of the home.
