Review of Kirknowe Care Home on Thursday 3 July 2014 by Dylan McKirdy (Son in law)

We visited numerous care homes in North Lanarkshire and at Kirknowe we were made very welcome. We were shown around, time was taken to take our details and listen to our past experiences. My father in law has now been in the care home for 5 months and is extremely happy. We would highly recommend Kirknowe to everyone.

Review of Kirknowe Care Home on Wednesday 25 June 2014 by Ian R (Son of resident)

The attention my dad received was excellent. The staff were very friendly and always had a smile on their face under very difficult circumstances. Even though they were stretched at times they always managed to give dad a cuddle, a smile and a little reassurance. If your considering putting a loved one into care, which is a very difficult decision to make, then I would highly recommend Kirknowe Care Home.

My mother refused to move to a care home. My sisters viewed a lot of homes in the area and were impressed with the welcome and friendliness of the staff. They managed to convince mother to try it and thankfully she loves it. I have visited twice as I stay up north and I am very impressed with my visits.

I am writing this on behalf of my family. I have to say the treatment Jim received was first class, from day one the staff could not do enough for Jim and the family. Jim was cared for with respect. The staff should get a medal for what they do.

I have lived at Kirknowe for 4 years and I have been extremely happy. I never want for anything. I have a duvet day as I am 103 years old. I go to activities, love to chat to the staff and I treat them as my own. I like my food and I am well catered for.

Review of Kirknowe Care Home on Wednesday 29 January 2014 by Mary Waddell (resident)

I could no longer live at home, so my daughter Elaine who lives in New Zealand found me a new home at Kirkfieldbank where the staff welcomed me and my dog Bonnie. Making us most welcome. They walk Bonnie for me and make sure she is fed. Bonnie also has the run of the unit. The staff look after me very well. At Christmas they bought a card and took photos of me to send to my daughter Elaine in New Zealand. The staff are like a second family to me, I am very happy.

Review of Kirknowe Care Home on Wednesday 29 January 2014 by Jean W (Resident)

I have no close relatives living in Scotland so I rely on the staff within the Kirkfieldbank unit. Over the last few months they have assisted me by doing my Christmas shopping, writing my Christmas cards and also decorating my room with Christmas decorations. As I am confined to my bed - the staff also go out to purchase my toiletries when I need things. Administrator help me with my financial business. This makes me feel safe, secure and happy at this time.
