Welcome to Kingsgate Care Home, Glasgow
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.
