Sharon Mudie is Care Home Manager at Craigieknowes Care Home.
You’ll find Craigieknowes Care Home has a welcoming and lively atmosphere situated in a pleasant residential area, with views of the city and surrounding countryside. We are close by to local shops and a short walk away from public transport, making us easily accessible for visitors to pop-in for a chat.
Our Care team offers nursing care for those who have complex medical needs, as well as 24-hour 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 respite care to give family or friends a well-earned break, and intermediate care as an alternative to hospital stay.
We run a busy activities programme to make sure our residents get the most out of every day, including specialised one-to-one activities for dementia care, regular day trips out, and visiting entertainers.

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.
