Gwen McKenzie is Care Home Manager at Burlington Court Care Home.
You’ll find Burlington Court Care Home in a residential area of Queenslie, a short drive away from Glasgow. We are close by to Glasgow Fort shopping centre and are in easy reach of the M8 and public transport, making us easily accessible for visitors to pop-in for a chat.
Our Care team offers nursing care for people with complex medical needs, as well as nursing dementia care provided by specialist teams trained in the complexities of looking after those living with dementia, who may also have other long-term medical conditions. We also provide specialist care for people with mental health conditions where we support our residents to re-establish their mental wellbeing, sustain independence and prepare for a move into supported living or their own home.
We run a busy activities programme to make sure our residents get the most out of every day, including day trips out, pet therapy, visiting entertainers, and activities with other local care homes.

Meet Our Carers
Our team is made up of qualified naturally caring people who continue to build their skills with on-going training.
As well as providing excellent professional care, our entire team is dedicated to fostering a sense of home and of belonging. That means taking plenty of time to understand individual residents, their likes and dislikes, and exploring all the ways we can make them happy and comfortable. It’s all about giving our residents and their loved ones the confidence that we’re providing the very best of care, and delivering special resident experiences every day.

The Importance Of Meal Times
There’s nothing quite like traditional home cooking to give everyone a lift.
We always ask residents and their families about their food preferences and dietary requirements. Our chef and catering team then work with dietitians to create meals that are nutritious and tasty, using fresh seasonal ingredients.
To add more variety, we also make a point of celebrating with special meals and events throughout the year. Residents can be served in our pleasant restaurant-style dining rooms or, if they prefer, they can take their meals in the privacy of their own rooms.
Another way we can help our residents to feel at home is for them to do familiar things. So our dedicated Activities Leaders gently encourage residents to carry on doing things they enjoy. If someone had a hobby or pastime they did before they arrived, we’ll encourage them to continue it with us. Or perhaps they may like to learn something new.
The important thing is that we treat every resident as an individual. If they enjoy sharing time with others, either in our home or on an organised trip out, they’re most welcome. Or, if they prefer quiet time alone, we’ll respect that too.
