Kirknowe Care Home

When my wife was confirmed as needing to enter a care home, my family and I did some detailed investigation (including Care Inspectorate reports) of the placements available and visited a number of specialist dementia units. We concluded that Kirknowe was the most appropriate and I now consider that this was a very good decision. In the two months she has been there we have been highly impressed by the level of care and concern shown to her by all staff from domestic through carers and nursing staff and up to unit management. Their care is professional, respectful, continuous and indeed very personal. We have had the opportunity to observe the care given to all resident of the unit and it is always of a very high standard no matter how difficult the situation may be. In every respect, our hopes and expectations of the level of care have been exceeded. Although she is severely impaired, my wife has settled in well and appears to respond well to her carers and appreciate the attention they give her.

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.

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 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.

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.
