Care Homes

Aberlour Options - Borders

The Care Inspectorate regulates care services in Scotland. Information about all care services can be found on our website at

This residential care home service has been registered since 2010 and is run by Aberlour Child Care Trust. It is registered to provide a care service to a maximum of 4 children or young people up to the age of 18 years with learning and/or physical disabilities at any one time. Some of the children and young people have very complex needs. The service provides short breaks and respite care and is based in a single storey residential property in St Boswells in the Scottish Borders. It is used by different numbers of young people during a normal week and at the time of our visit here were three young people living in the house during the days we were present.
