Meet The Manager

Catherine Galbraith is Home Manager at Milngavie Manor.

Our stunning care home in East Dunbartonshire, offering luxurious living coupled with the highest standards of care and support.

Just north west of Glasgow in the striking town of Milngavie, you'll find Milngavie Manor, our luxury care home that offers residential, nursing and dementia care for the older community.

Milngavie has a rich and progressive history, evolving from a small country village, to a minor industrial centre for paper mills, to now being considered by some a quiet suburb of northern Glasgow (which is only 6 miles south).

Milngavie is now a popular retirement destination, with a vibrant community of retirees who enjoy busy social lives with an abundance of social clubs and interest groups taking place throughout the week.

There are some quality destinations around Milngavie for a day-break - the Milngavie reservoir (1859) is a beautiful dog-walking and tourist attraction, and is the main supplier of water to Glasgow City. It's particularly famous for its wellbeing benefits as it's consummation essentially caused the eradication of cholera and typhoid, which were all too common at the time.

You'll find many places of worship around Milngavie - in fact, three twentieth Century churches are within 500m of each other! 

If you're a sports fan, you'll be pleased to know that Milngavie is the home of West of Scotland FC, one of the oldest rugby clubs in Scotland, dating back to 1865. Rangers Football Club's training facility is also in the town.

Alongside the superb features and hotel-style facilities, Milngavie Manor care home offers an exceptional level of care. The stunning care home benefits from a dedicated and experienced team who are committed to providing the very best care for our residents, and enjoys a 'Very Good' rating from the Care Inspectorate. 

Milngavie Manor offers 24-hour residential, dementia and nursing care. If you are looking for care for yourself or a loved one please do get in touch - we'd love to have the opportunity to show you around our beautiful home and introduce you to our friendly team.

Our exquisitely landscaped gardens come with a putting green and seasonly planted raised flower beds for all to enjoy - even if you just want to admire them all from our rooftop and balcony terraces.

For our green-fingered residents who love to garden, we have a communal greenhouse, where a variety of crops, fruit and vegetables are grown throughout the year.

That's not all, though - Milngavie Manor also boasts a wellbeing and beauty salon designed for pampering in style, which includes hairdressing, a nail bar for manicures and pedicures, and a relaxing space for our unique Hamberley Hand Massage.

Our four luxury restaurants offer an exclusive dining experience for residents who wish to indulge their taste-buds, and our deluxe cinema allows residents to enjoy the big screen experience from their own home in a classic style.

Within our Milngavie care home we offer a variety of living areas and recreational spaces making us the perfect home for hosting family and friends, too.

We have a stunning café where residents can enjoy a quiet coffee by themselves or invite loved ones over to enjoy afternoon tea.

We strive to create a relaxing and comfortable environment for all of our residents. Whether they like to relax with a good book, socialise with friends, or watch the world go by, we can facilitate it all.

Our quiet rooms are particularly popular for residents who prefer their own company, and our vibrant and busy living spaces are great for building friendships.

Milngavie Manor's sumptuous cinema is a popular destination for our resident film-lovers, who often put in requests for classic favourites or the latest releases. 

We also host a Dementia-Friendly Cinema Club where people living with dementia can enjoy the big screen in comfortable and open surroundings.

Thanks to our four different restaurants and private dining suite, it is easier than ever for residents to host their own dinner or tea party. Our kitchen team can prepare everything in advance for you, as well as deliver a menu of your choice.

Our team

You'll be hard-pressed to find a care home around Milngavie who offer services as complete as ours. Not only do we have luxurious facilities and services, we are immensely proud of our care team.

Our team provide holistic, all-encompassing care,  focusing on all the little details that are important to our residents.

They are led by Home Manager Susan Mcelhinney-Leung, who ensures that the home is running smoothly. 

Milngavie Manor's devoted staff will organise special days out, events and activities that enable residents to get involved in the local community around Milngavie. Their ultimate goal is to ensure that our residents can lead a rewarding and meaningful lifestyle - no matter what mobility limitations they might have.

Person Centred Care

We celebrate the individuality of each and every one of our residents and the care that we provide is bespoke to their unique care needs. We endeavour to provide each resident with the right amount of support they need, whether that is lots, or just a little, and when they need it. 

Milngavie Manor staff take time to become familiar with new residents, their families and their day-to-day habits and lifestyles - even before they move in.

This means we will have everything ready for their arrival, and be totally aware of how much or little support residents need.

It's crucial for us at Hamberley Care Homes that all of our residents feel like Milngavie Manor is their home. We understand how difficult it can be changing your life and moving home, so our team ensure a smooth transition and create a cosy, friendly living space.

We use our person centred approach to establish how our residents prefer to live their lives, and with this we can help them  live a rewarding and nurturing lifestyle of their own choosing.

At Milngavie Manor our residents build true connections and friendships with each other, and we love to get involved in the local community, organising and hosting events whenever possible.

Independence is incredibly important here at Milngavie Manor, and we like to try and keep our residents involved in all the hobbies and activities they loved before they moved in.

The Importance Of Meal Times

Dining & nutrition

Well balanced and wholesome meals made with fresh and locally sourced ingredients by our resident chefs.

Variety is the spice of life and our resident chef ensures that we serve a wide range of meals catering for every taste and diet. Our carefully planned menus offer well balanced wholesome meals, where traditional dishes feature alongside international cuisine and include varied seasonal options, every day of the week.

There’s no ‘rolling menu’ and we offer new options each week according to the likes, needs and wishes of our residents. We always use fresh ingredients in our dishes, including quality meat from a locally sourced butcher and have a wide range of homemade desserts on offer.

There are no restrictions on what and when our residents can eat – meals and refreshments are available throughout the day. A light supper menu will also be available for those who prefer to retire later, or wake hungry during the night. If a resident has any specific dietary requirements or need any nutritional advice one of our team is always on hand to help.

Home-like dining 

We know that being able to sit down together with friends and family to enjoy a nutritious homecooked meal is the foundation of a happy and vibrant home life. So that’s why our team members are committed to making every meal time an enjoyable experience for all our residents.  Friends and family are welcome to join and dine with us for a small extra charge.

We regularly adapt our menus to suit food preferences and changing nutritional requirements. As part of our personalised care package we work together with our residents and/or their families, for nutritional profiling and meal planning to ensure they are always well-hydrated and well-nourished. If it is agreed between our residents and their loved ones, our electronic care plans can also give instant updates on what food and drink has been consumed.

Many of our team are ‘Foodies’ with a real passion for cooking so there’s always opportunities for the residents to be involved in the preparation of meals if they wish to do so. Our homes regularly hold pop-up restaurant nights, speciality cuisine events and cookery masterclasses, which can be enjoyed by residents and families alike.

Activities Are So Important

Wellbeing & lifestyle

Our designated Wellbeing & Lifestyle Coach ensures that we create a nurturing and stimulating environment for everyone.

Our personalised approach to care means that we cater for all of our residents’ unique needs, providing as little or as much support as they require.

Happiness and harmony are at the heart of our home life and we have a designated Wellbeing & Lifestyle Coach to ensure that we create a nurturing and stimulating environment for everyone, residents and staff alike.

We advocate activities that promote physical and mental wellbeing but we don’t believe in waiting for an Activities Coordinator to organise them. Our team members have a collective responsibility to support our residents to continue with their hobbies or pursue new leisure activities, when they want to and not as part of a set timetable.

We provide a combination of fun and therapeutic activities that help our residents to be more physically active, mentally stimulated and socially connected. Working together with our Wellbeing & Lifestyle Coach all of our residents benefit from a Personalised Wellbeing Programme, which is reviewed every four weeks. The programme uses data from medical records, past employment history and personal experiences, interests and social activities, and assesses current levels of physical and mental ability, to create a supportive and nurturing lifestyle.

Wellbeing also includes self-esteem, confidence and self-care. We offer a Wellbeing Salon which helps to regain self-confidence by helping residents to relax and feel better emotionally and mentally. Our residents receive salon treatments every week and all our Homemakers are trained to give luxury hand massages. Our therapies are a great way to unwind, relax and get rid of unwanted stress and tension.

Homes also offer a number of mobility classes to improve residents range of movement, strength and flexibility which promotes independence and helps with a feel good factor.
