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 27th Annual Alzheimer Europe Conference “Care today, cure tomorrow” took place on 2nd October 2017 till the 4th October 2017 in Berlin, Germany. It’s the largest dementia conference in Europe, which welcomed close to 750 participants from 42 countries.
Dr Claire Royston, Colin Sheeran, Joanne Strain and Dr Gary Mitchell represented Four Seasons Health Care at this event and presented five papers on a number of aspects of our Dementia Care Framework.
Dr Claire Royston presented European conference delegates with an overview on the Dementia Care Framework programme and how it has helped optimise care to people living with dementia in care homes. Her presentation was supplemented with impactful data from our 100 accredited care homes across the UK.
Other aspects of the Framework were also presented at the conference with reference to our work on antipsychotic medication reductions and reviews, the dementia experience programme, palliative and end-of-life care in dementia and reduction of restraint.
Following on from sharing our work at an international stage, our Dementia Care Framework will next be presented at the UK Dementia Congress in Doncaster next month – the UK’s largest dementia conference.
We also have some exciting news regarding the Dementia Care Framework. An article on the positive impact of the Framework has been accepted for publication in an international dementia journal, meaning that people all over the world will be able to learn about our innovative approach to improving quality of life for people living with dementia.

Building relationships is extremely important. The care teams in our homes work hard to get to know each and every resident on a one-to-one basis.
This relationship was clear to see at Campsie View Care Home in Glasgow, when Kitchen Assistant Jade Wallace invited resident Moira to her baby shower for her little boy Zander.
Katy Jenks, Home Manager, said: “Jade made Moira the VIP at the baby shower which was great to see. The relationship between these two ladies is absolutely lovely and the fact that they can share experiences in lovely occasions like this is the pinnacle of their relationship.”

Campsie View Care Home in Glasgow has been accredited for a pioneering dementia care approach.
The care team at Campsie View Care Home is celebrating being accredited for a radically different approach of care for people living with dementia.
The Dementia Care Framework is a unique step forward in the personalisation of care for people living with dementia. The care team uses exclusive purpose-designed technology to help build and continuously update a picture of each resident’s individual experience of their care and their physical, psychological and emotional well-being, so that their care can be adjusted to their changing needs.
The pioneering home is part of Four Seasons Health Care which spent two years developing and testing the new approach. The home hosted an Alice in Wonderland themed party on Friday 25th August 2017 for care commissioners, other health and social care professionals and relatives to introduce the Dementia Care Framework to them.
John Kirk, Managing Director for Scotland said: “This is next generation dementia care to make life better for the person with dementia and we are excited to offer it. A vital part of the Framework is the bespoke support and training the team throughout the home receives with additional support and training for those, working within our dementia services. This goes beyond the practicalities of caring for someone with dementia and through simulation gives them a deeper understanding of what it is like to live with dementia.”
At the heart of the Dementia Care Framework is a personal care review process which is continuously updated electronically by care staff to give a comprehensive and current picture of each resident.
Thought to be the first of its type worldwide, it is based on 320 recognised standards, including NICE Guidelines (National Institute for Health and Care Excellence) and Alzheimer’s Society best practice guidance. It replaces paper-based audits that are slow and almost always behind the changing care needs of the person.
The resident and family charters were developed in consultation with residents, family members, health and social care professionals and care teams, taking account of over 400 comments.
The resident charter sets out their rights, the standards of care they can expect and commitment to provide for their personal needs and preferences.
The family charter, sets out the support that they can expect to receive and how they can input to planning their relative’s care.
Only when a home achieves key standards within the Dementia Care Framework does it receive Four Seasons Accreditation for the quality of its dementia care.
