Welcome to Campsie View Care Home
We are situated in a quiet area of Kirkintilloch which is well known as the Canal Capital of Scotland. We have a pleasant outlook and view of the Campsie Hills and we're a short walk from local parks and the town centre. We have two enclosed gardens which the residents enjoy in the summer months. Residents are encouraged to participate in gardening.
We offer individual person-centred care to our residents with complex needs. The home allows for three respite care places at any one time with qualified nursing staff available at all times to supervise care delivered by well-trained care assistants around the clock.
We are presently undergoing a refurbishment programme which will enhance the environment for the residents, this includes a sensory room. Residents have chosen the colours for corridors and bedrooms and are encouraged to personalise their rooms. All rooms have en-suites, TVs and great safety features. Personal telephones can be provided in bedrooms on request.
Life at Campsie View Care Home
We have two dedicated activity leaders who encourage all residents to participate in either individual or group activities of their choice. We have regular meetings with the residents to air their views on what activities or outings they would like to take part in.
There's a variety of interesting programmes within the home such as chair aerobics, trips to local places of interest and concerts. All birthdays are celebrated in the home and families are encouraged to participate in all events.
Catering at the home is of a high standard, our menus are nutritionally balanced and residents are encouraged to have input into the menu.
Very welcoming to friends and family, high standard of care and lots of activities.
I am one of three daughters and our lovely mother was admitted to Campsie View on 13th April 2013. Over the two years mother was given excellent care, she was a quiet wee soul who was very content to people watch and to sit by her room window watching the birds and the activities in the car park. She loved to be dressed in bright colours which the attentive staff made sure was always possible. Her dementia and physical health gradually deteriorated until at the end of March she suddenly required more constant nursing care becoming bed ridden. The care she received was exemplary from all the staff and I mean every member of staff. My sisters and I were welcomed and cared for as much as mother. She died with dignity on 7th April 2015 aged 92 years and we her family are so indebted to the wonderful staff of Campsie View.

The Nursing Times announced their shortlist of finalists for their upcoming annual awards in London. The Nursing Times, affectionately known as the Oscars of Nursing, are the most respected awards in the nursing and healthcare sector and offer much-deserved recognition for the innovative and excellent care that nurses at all levels provide across the UK.
There were 128 organisations that were shortlisted across the 22 categories. We at Four Seasons Health Care have the honour of being the organisation that was shortlisted in more categories than any other. With 7 finalists we can truly assert that we are changing the face of care home nursing.
Over the next few week’s we’ll be profiling the finalists of these awards, so you can find out more about our work and some of the exceptional nurse leaders in our organisation who have helped make Four Seasons Health Care the most exciting place to nurse in the UK!
The next category we’re profiling is the ‘Enhancing Patient Dignity’ category.
Enhancing Patient Dignity Award
Palliative and end-of-life care is a human right for all people living with incurable illness. In recent years we have been leading the way in relation to enhancing the provision of palliative care in our nursing homes. Our nurses have written accredited palliative care modules for the Royal College of Nursing, published multiple articles in the Nursing Standard and the International Journal of Palliative Nursing and hosted twitter chats on the topic with the British Medical Journal and Four Seasons Health Care Nurses. This expertise has culminated in significant improvements in the palliative care for people living in our care homes.
Having recently been recognised in the International Journal of Palliative Nursing Awards for our work in dementia care, Head of Nursing Joanne Strain will hope to lead our teams in this prestigious category.

Residents at Campsie View Care Home in Glasgow have been busy converting an unused shed into a look out, enabling them to watch the local wildlife up close.
Katy Jenks, Home Manager, said: “Many of our residents enjoy a bit of bird watching, so this lookout is a fantastic way of providing a shelter for those who wish to observe nature at its best. The residents are already taking to it in turns to use it and have captured some lovely moments with the wildlife.”
