Kirkton House provides residential and respite care for older people.
We also provide support for adults with acquired brain injuries, learning disabilities, challenging behaviour and chronic illnesses. We are focused on ensuring people receive the highest standard of care to suit their individual needs.
We enable people to maintain lifestyles that are as similar as possible to those enjoyed at home. We encourage regular interaction with the local community, including contact with friends, family and local groups. We encourage friends and family to be involved through regular visits and participation at special activities, events and open days.
We organise a range of activities designed to maintain people’s independence and enhance their quality of life. Activities which people can choose to be involved in include various board games, flower arranging and arts and crafts. We also have two activities rooms where individuals are supported to continue any hobbies they enjoyed before coming to stay with us. Regular entertainment is provided and individuals can choose to take trips out to the museums, cinemas, pubs, restaurants and the seaside. People are also supported to visit day centres and join in with seasonal activities in the local area.
Meal times are an important part of the day at Kirkton House. Our experienced catering staff prepare a menu of home cooked food every day and we cater for individual likes and dislikes from a cultural, religious or choice perspective. People can choose to have their meals either in their room or in the lounge/dining rooms.
Our experienced and qualified staff provide 24 hour tailored care and are selected for their skills and experience in providing residential and respite care.
We provide our service seven days a week, 24 hours a day for as long as people require it.
