Meet The Manager

Lorraine Douglas is Care Home Manager at Queens Care Home.

Sitting alongside the stunning promenade in Prestwick, with glorious coastal views across to the Isle of Arran, Queens Care Home is situated in a truly beautiful location.

Our caring staff provide a variety of care and support to our residents, including residential care, nursing care, dementia care, and palliative care.

The front of the care home stretches along the promenade, with a large decking and paved garden where our residents can enjoy the scenery and fresh sea air. From here, there are views of Ailsa Craig, also known as Paddy’s Milestone, an uninhibited island formed from a volcanic plug which was famously used to quarry the granite used to make curling stones.

The bedrooms at the front of Queens boast wonderful sea views across the South Ayrshire coastline, as does our Arran Lounge. This and our other lounge, bathrooms and communal areas of the home are looking beautiful, bright and airy following a very recent refurbishment.

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

At Sanctuary Care we recognise meal times have always been a focus for residents in our homes which is why we invest in fantastic chefs and catering staff who can deliver delicious, nutritious menus and create an enjoyable dining experience for our residents. Some of our residents enjoy getting involved in the preparation and serving of food! You can read more about this in our case studies.

Cooked or continental? Sandwiches or hot food? The choice is yours with residents being involved in creating seasonal nutritional menus from old favourites to trying something new…there’s also always freshly baked cakes to enjoy for afternoon tea.

Midnight snack? No problem, refreshments are available to residents throughout the day and evening if they get a little peckish.

We encourage meal-times where residents can eat together and socialise in a relaxing environment but understand that residents may wish to enjoy food when they and where choose to have it.

Our trained staff understand the importance of eating well and staying hydrated and supporting residents living with dementia to enjoy food in their environment – making food more visible through coloured crockery and more appealing whether it's pureed, finger foods or moulded.

Activities Are So Important

We make the most of the location of Queens. Every week we join Dementia Friendly Prestwick, a group dedicated to supporting people living with or affected by dementia. Together, we stroll along the promenade (and obviously support our less mobile residents in wheelchairs) into the town, where they enjoy a drink with people from the local community.

Queens also partners with Cycling Without Age Prestwick, where our residents are taken on nostalgic rickshaw rides around the town. These are a real trip down memory lane for our residents, many of whom have lived in the area all their lives. For our residents who live with dementia, the rides often help them recall happy memories of where they grew up and places they loved to visit before moving into residential care.

Through our dedicated activities team, we have also just started to do Lingo Flamingo, where our residents take part in sensory linguistic classes here at Queens. Currently they are learning Spanish. We will be expanding on this by holding themed days to savour the cuisine, music and culture of these countries.

Therapet is an organisation where volunteers frequently bring their well-behaved dogs into Queens for a fuss. The dogs are wonderful for our residents, especially those who love animals or owned dogs and miss that canine contact. We also have two hand-reared rabbits, Sonny and Cher – which are adored by our residents and love to come inside the home for a cuddle.

A beauty therapist in Prestwick also frequently visits Queens for residents who like a little pampering, offering hand massages, nail painting and manicures, as well as more tailored facial trimming for our gentlemen.
