Kirknowe is a modern, purpose-built home, situated in a quiet residential area of Wishaw in Lanarkshire.
Kirknowe comprises three separate houses, all on the ground floor.
Kirknowe also offers specialist Parkinson’s care along with convalescence, palliative care and respite. Our qualified staff ensure all residents receive expert care for their specific needs and each has a tailored care plan. We welcome residents from all funding types including local authority, privately funded and NHS continuing care.
Mealtimes are an important part of each day at Kirknowe. The chef always ensures there is a tasty seasonal menu, with a hot and cold choice available at each meal. There is also a Night Bite menu available between the hours of 6.30pm and 6.30am.
We aim to fully understand new residents' nutritional needs and preferences shortly after their arrival. We check regularly that such needs are being met. We also continually look for feedback so we can continue to improve our food service.
The activity co-ordinator at Kirknowe ensures there’s always something enjoyable and stimulating to do, from bowls and gardening club to film shows on big screen televisions. A mobile library visits regularly, as do local entertainers.
The home is close to local shops, which means that some residents enjoy popping out to do a little shopping. We also arrange other trips out locally - perhaps to Clydeside garden centre, depending on resident requests.
Every Bupa home offers a key event each month, tailored to the different capabilities of residents. These are held every month and include Burns Night, Pancake Day and Community Crops events.
