The staff at Haldane House used their skills to nurse her back to health...  the loving care and attention they provided

Welcome to Atkinsons Private Nursing Homes. Atkinsons Private Nursing Homes (APNH) was founded in 1977 by the late Mr. A.V. (Victor) Atkinson. The first of our current homes to be opened was Haldane House, followed by Longlea in 1989 and Fourways in 2006. Several other care homes were bought in between as the group expanded during the 1980s. In 1984, Victor met his future wife and business partner, a fellow care home owner called Moira McTeggart, to whom he sold a small care home, thus Upalong Residential Homebecame part of the family group. This partnership continued until 2001 when Victor asked me to assist him in the managing the rebuild of Longlea into a purpose built home. Although this was to be the last project we would work on together as father and son, having worked for him for 5 years previously, I was able to see first hand why my father had developed such a fine reputation as a care home proprietor. Victor died in 2002 shortly before the re-opening of Longlea but having set out it visionary future. 

Victor had a vision to create a group of care homes that were warm, homely, efficient and professionally managed with a family-orientated atmosphere. Our homes have been deliberately kept small to encourage the feeling of community and the staff are rigorously trained to maintain high standards of care at all times.

Today, Atkinsons Private Nursing Homes remains a family business owned and managed by dedicated people with a passion for providing exceptional quality care.
