Welcome to Cardonald Care Home
You'll find Cardonald Care Home on the outskirts of Glasgow city centre.
Here we provide 24-hour nursing care based on the needs of individual people. We encourage residents and their relatives to get involved in care planning and evaluation; and we respect their choices, and keep everyone informed.
We receive weekly GP visits, supported by a liaison nurse. We also have access to community-based services such as dieticians, speech and language therapists, and physiotherapists.
Within the home we provide care in a selection of rooms. There are two refurbished lounge areas with flat-screen TVs. We also have a spacious dining area with views of our garden.
All of our bedrooms, including those suitable for sharing, have en-suites.

Many of our homes welcome famous faces through its doors, but one home in particular can boast a whole football team from time to time.
Mary, a resident at Cardonald Care Home in Glasgow worked tirelessly at Glasgow Rangers Football Club for 48 years previously to living in the home. Now from time to time, the football team drop by for a chat and a drink, but there’s one special man in particular who regularly comes to visit Mary.
Michelle Murray, Home Manager, said: “Ally is a very good friend of Mary’s and regularly comes and takes her out for afternoon tea before coming back and sitting in the home for a chat. He’s like an extended member of the family, and it’s nice for everyone in the home because for such a famous man, he’s certainly very humble. I know Mary enjoys spending time with him and the rest of the football team. It’s nice to see that they continue to recognise her for her hard work and dedication, even after she has retired.”

Towards the end of last year, the 42 homes in Scotland, Wales and the Isle of Man regions took part in a competition to create their own twiddle mitts.
John Kirk, Managing Director for the Region, said: “Twiddle Mitts provide much needed relief for people living with dementia, as they are able to play with the various beads and other textures on there.
“With that in mind, I set the homes on my patch a challenge. I wanted to see who could design the best twiddle mitt.
“The response I got was fantastic. The mitts weren't only made by members of the care teams, but by the residents and their families. I want to thank everyone who took the time to make a mitt. These will now be winging their way back to the homes for the residents to enjoy.”
The top three twiddle mitts were chosen from the following homes:

Nobody likes staying in hospital. In fact many of us count down the days until we get discharged. But what happens when we still need a bit of care to help us in our rehabilitation before we’re allowed to return home?
This is where Four Seasons Health Care’s Intermediate Care Service can help.
Intermediate care is also known as ‘step-up, step-down’ or rehabilitation care. It can be an alternative to a prolonged or unnecessary hospital stay. It can help you avoid going into hospital in the first place, or provide somewhere to get better when you’re not quite ready to go home. Once you are completely rehabilitated, you are able to return to your own home.
Where would you rather stay to aid your rehabilitation? In hospital? In a care home environment?
With this in mind a number of our homes - with the support of their Local Authority, Primary Care Trusts and the Care Quality Commission - have set up Intermediate Care Beds to aid the transition from hospital, rehabilitation to home.
Over the coming weeks we will be showcasing some of our homes who provide this service.
Our case studies will focus on:
- Westview Lodge Care Home in Hartlepool
- Pelton Grange Care Home, Brockwell Court Care Home and Hollie Hill Care Home in County Durham
- Springfield Care Home in Blackburn
- Pellon Care Centre in Halifax
- Harrogate Lodge Care Home in Leeds
- Maple Lodge Care Home in Sunderland
- Grove House Care Home in the Wirral
Paul Hayes, Commissioning and Commercial Operations Director for Four Seasons Health Care, said: “Intermediate care is only a short-term solution. The average length of stay for the purpose of rehabilitation is 6 weeks. It doesn’t mean that people can’t leave before then, but we like to make sure that they’re 100% fighting fit before they leave us.”
