Ailsa Craig is a bright, spacious home situated in Cessnock, on the outskirts of central Glasgow, conveniently located on a local bus route and within walking distance of local shops.
Ailsa Craig has been designed specifically to meet the needs of elderly residents. The home comprises three separate houses – Rothesay provides nursing care, Millport specialises in nursing dementia care and Bute offers enhanced residential care facilities.
The care at Ailsa Craig is offered in association with Glasgow City Council. As you’d expect from Bupa, our standards of care are second to none, and our registered nurses and care assistants are highly trained to provide 24-hour professional support.
The manager of Ailsa Craig is Sheila Margey.
Meals are an important part of the day, and our chef manager and her team creates a wide range of balanced, nutritious dishes, prepared daily using only fresh produce. Time is taken to meet all our residents to discuss their preferences and any special dietary requirements they may have.
Residents can choose to eat in our comfortable dining rooms overlooking the garden or in the privacy of their own bedroom if they prefer.
All our chef managers meet twice a year to discuss ideas and best practice. Our menus also celebrate traditional days and events throughout the year, from Pancake Day to Mothering Sunday and Christmas celebrations.
At Ailsa Craig we encourage residents to lead a full and active lifestyle and offer a wide range of activities to suit all interests and levels of mobility, both on a group and individual basis. There’s always something enjoyable and stimulating to do for residents of all abilities – from games and arts and crafts to beauty therapy and gardening.
We have an on-site hairdressing salon and nail bar for some well-deserved pampering. The home has strong links with the local school and community and local entertainers visit regularly.
Activities don’t just take place in the home, however, as we organise visits to local places of interest such as museums, the safari park and shopping trips to Glasgow. We take full advantage of our close proximity to BBC Scotland by taking part in audiences for game shows and other programmes, which our residents thoroughly enjoy.
