Description

Our vision of keeping kindness at the heart of our care underpins the ethos of our entire organisation.

From our wonderful teams who care for our residents like they were members of their own families through to our senior management team – we are all here for the same reason.

We are committed to ensuring our residents, who choose Sanctuary Care to support them in their later years, are able to live happy and contented lives full of wonderful experiences and memories.

This is achieved through our dedication to recruiting the right staff who are supported to build rewarding careers with us, investing in our care homes and working together with our residents and those closest to them to deliver care and support in a way which shows true kindness at the heart of our care.


The Importance Of Meal Times

Mealtimes are a real highlight for the residents, who enjoy delicious traditional Scottish fare prepared by head chef Stephen, who has worked at the home for a staggering 27 years! He knows our residents’ likes and dislikes and will cater to their every need. If they fancy something which isn’t on the menu, Stephen is happy to prepare it for them. The cakes he makes for birthday celebrations and every day for afternoon tea are outstanding.

Activities Are So Important

Keeping residents engaged and stimulated with fulfilling activities is a vital part of life in the home. Whether enjoying a spot of holistic therapy with our regular Reiki sessions, or waving pom poms around in the music and movement classes, there is always something to do! Our more intimate one to one activities are so important too, where we sit with a resident and do anything from read poetry together, spend time reminiscing or treat them to a relaxing hand massage.

Every week we take the residents out and about in our own minibus. A short drive from the nursing home is the National Museum of Rural Life in East Kilbride. Other favorite spots that our residents like to go each week are South Lanarkshire’s Calderglen Country Park and Whitelee Wind Farm in Eaglesham, Glasgow. If they fancy a little retail therapy, the care home is a very short drive from the town’s main shopping centre.

Every week the leaders of the local churches conduct services at Forefaulds especially for our residents. We are also invited back to Moncrieff Parish Church in Calderwood every week for activities, including dominoes, darts and boules.
