THE THOUGHTS OF OUR FAMILIES

Lyn M (Daughter of Resident)

My mother was a resident for 9 months and received excellent care. Everyone from the domestic staff, admin, nursing and managers took the time to learn about mum, her likes, dislikes and got to know the family that visited. It was a relief for us knowing that mum was safe, well cared for and settled in Kingsgate, which allowed us the time to visit and spend quality time with her.

Wallace G (Brother of Resident)

My sister aged 87 was accepted as a resident this month. I was amazed at the reception displayed by management and staff, absolutely overwhelming and very professional. I have been visiting my sister in the past week, she is so relaxed and happy, which is a great relief to me and especially her daughter, who visits most days. She is so pleased with the level of care her mother is getting, I can only say thank you Kingsgate.

Annette R (Daughter of Resident)

My mum recently moved from hospital into Kingsgate Care Home, which was a very anxious time for me as I had cared for her for 8 years. When I met with the Manager to view the Home, I was very impressed with how understanding she was, and immediately felt she was sincere, and tried to put me at ease. It didn’t take long to find out that I had made the right decision for my mum’s care needs. The staff are pleasant and always chat, and gave me updates on how mum’s doing. Food looks amazing, mum’s room is lovely, always clean. Mum has even joined in on activities, she seems so relaxed and happy, which is just what I want for her. My family have all agreed that Kingsgate is perfect for mum, very pleasant decor, and am so happy now that mum seems to have settled in just fine. Thanks to all the staff.

Meet the Manager

Angela Baird

Angela Baird, Care Home Manager

Kingsgate Care Home is situated in Nerston, East Kilbride, and has excellent transport links making it easily accessible by car and public transport from all the surrounding areas. We have ample parking facilities and easy access to the home, with ramps for those that cannot manage the steps. We have a fully enclosed courtyard area, which provides a safe and pleasant area for residents and families to access, and in the summer months, this is a bright and sunny area that we use for activities and events. Four of our rooms have French door access to the courtyard providing a pleasant living experience.

We pride ourselves on the warm and friendly atmosphere at the home, and our staff are all committed to providing a loving and compassionate environment for those we care for. As the manager I actively encourage families to personalise the rooms, making them as homely as possible. This helps our residents settle into the home and makes them feel as though it is their home which is a key ethos of Kingsgate. We have a strong team of nurses and carers, along with a stable team of ancillary staff who all take pride in their work. Our kitchen provides freshly cooked meals and snacks each day, with a choice of meals at each sitting. An alternative will always be provided if requested. We offer traditional regional menus alongside more current menus to meet every bodies taste.

Friends and family are always welcome at Kingsgate and are greeted with a friendly face. We love our families and friends to be actively involved in the home and welcome all input. I have an open door policy for all visitors to the home, and will always make time to chat and make visitors feel welcome. Kingsgate offers a wide range of activities for its residents including musical events, sporting memories, football memories, a regular church service, themed events, and links with Sense Scotland and the local primary school. We also have a visiting hairdresser and a Dementia Friendly Barber for our gentleman. We love our families to be involved in these activities and welcome suggestions.

The residents at Kingsgate Care Home receive the highest standard of nursing care and support with their every need from a caring and nurturing staff team. We promote choice and inclusion in all aspects of this care in order to protect our resident’s dignity and to respect their wishes. Medical care is provided by our local surgery, Alison Lea, who attend the home weekly to hold a surgery, and on other occasions, if required. This provides your relatives with a continuity of care that is vital to their wellbeing.

I would like to invite you to visit the home and see our homely and welcoming environment. You can just call in or contact us on 01355 385893 to make an appointment. You are always welcome at Kingsgate Care Home, and all enquiries are handled in a very sensitive manner as I understand that coming to this stage in your relatives journey is not always an easy transition.
