Welcome to Kirknowe Care Home in Wishaw

Kirknowe is made up of three separate, self-contained houses situated in a friendly residential area of Wishaw. We are surrounded by beautiful landscaped grounds with a herb garden and a comfortable patio area to relax in. We also have a cafe which is open on certain days for residents and visitors.

We have created a warm, friendly environment with all the facilities and standards of care and hygiene you would associate with Bupa. It's really important that our residents feel completely at home with us. We help them lead as active and independent a life as possible, and tailor the support we offer to each individual.

Life at Kirknowe Care Home

An inclusive and varied activity programme is a vital part of the care we provide and our dedicated activity co-ordinator aims to find something for our residents to take part in every day.

Our activities

Appetites, sleeping patterns and general well-being are all improved when residents have something fun to look forward to every day. We are always open to suggestions from residents and their loved ones about new hobbies and pastimes they might like to try.

Some of the activities which are popular among our residents include music, arts and crafts, film shows, light exercise programmes and pet therapy. The more green-fingered can enjoy a little light gardening – we grow mint, thyme and sage to use in our kitchen. Our residents can enjoy visits from the mobile library as well as local entertainers who pop by to perform on a regular basis. 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 to places like Clydeside garden 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.
