Life at Ailsa Craig Care Home

With a range of activities available, our dedicated and experienced activity co-ordinator provides a packed schedule of events for all of our residents.

Our activities

Our residents have the freedom to spend their days exactly how they wish at Ailsa Craig. We make sure they have plenty of activity options to choose from, whether that's taking a stroll around the gardens, catching up on their favourite TV shows or a good book or taking part in one of the many pursuits organised by our in-house activity co-ordinator.

Those feeling energetic can help out with some gentle gardening, while those looking for something a bit more sedate can take part in arts and crafts sessions or one of our many games.

We also organise visits to local places of interest, such as museums, the safari park or shopping in Glasgow's city centre.

Can I bring my own furniture?

Depending on its size, new residents are welcome to bring furniture to their new room. Many of our residents bring a favourite armchair or pictures and other small belongings to personalise their room.

How soon can I move in?

This depends on availability of rooms in the home, understanding the cost of care and the person moving in receiving a care assessment.
