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.

Two team members from Campsie View Care Home in Glasgow went the whole hog as they took part in Tougher Mudder, with the aim of raising money for the residents’ fund.
Senior Nurse Care Assistant Kellie Meharry and Carer Debbie Harris pushed their bodies to the limit as they went up against various different obstacles.
Katy Jenks, Home Manager, said: “I’m really proud of Kellie and Debbie, they did a fantastic job, and were still smiling at the end of the course. Their hard work paid off and the pair managed to raise £250 which will go towards providing special experiences for the residents. Well done again ladies. You both deserve a nice hot soak in the bath.”

Friday 16th June marked Care Home Open Day, a day that actively encourages people in the local community to pop into their local care home and find out what’s going on.
The theme for this year’s open day was friendship, and Four Seasons homes and their local community certainly forged some long lasting friendships with their local communities through a variety of different events.
The events included:
- The Prince’s Trust heading into Kingsmead Care Home in Swindon sprucing up the garden
- Ty Eirin Care Home in Port welcomed in local school children and councillors for a fun filled afternoon
- A Jazz band kept everyone entertained in Pontypridd at Ty Gwynno Care Home
- It was a more sleepy affair at Whittington Care Home in Chesterfield as the team turned up for work in the PJs before having lots of fun with residents, relatives and visitors to the home
- Music and dancing was definitely on the cards for many of our homes as Benarty View Care Home in Kelty, Gotton Manor Care Home in Taunton, Benholm Care Home in Forfar and Laurels Lodge Care Home in Woodside, all had musical entertainment (and an assortment of other activities) for their guests
- Campsie View Care Home in Glasgow had their own petting zoo for everyone to enjoy
- The Laurels Care Home in Hetton-le-Hole held a country and western themed day which everyone thoroughly enjoyed
- Jazz was the music of choice at The Cedars and Larches Care Home in Ilkeston’s festivities.
- Redwell Hills Care Home in Consett, remembered the friends they’d sadly lost and released some balloons with messages in their honour.
The photos you can see above are just a snap shot of what happened at our homes during Care Home Open Day. It’s great to see from the pictures that everyone had lots of fun.

Cook Dianne Duddy started a baking group at Campsie View Care Home in Glasgow, which has baked a number of culinary delights for the rest of the home.
Katy Jenks, Home Manager, said: “Our residents used to indulge in a bit of baking before they moved into Campsie View, so they were more than happy to dust off their old aprons and get involved.
“The residents, who don’t bake, are loving being the taste testers. It certainly keeps everyone happy here at Campsie View.”
