Welcome to Carrickstone House Care Home
You'll find Carrickstone House situated at Carrickstone roundabout, in Cumbernauld, Glasgow.
We are especially trained in caring for those living with dementia. Our unique approach is based on understanding dementia form the resident’s perspective, enabling us to deliver Special Resident Experiences and consistently good care everywhere.
Here our team of registered nurses, and well trained, dedicated, care staff, provides care around the clock. To meet a range of needs, we offer different levels of care, from nursing and dementia care, to palliative care and rehabilitation.
Ours is a modern, well maintained property, within easy reach of the town, public transport, and other amenities. People living here love to spend time in our pleasant gardens.
All communal rooms are light and airy. Bedrooms have en-suites and great safety features; many also enjoy garden views.
We love residents to choose how they want these spaces decorated and set out, to make them more personal and homely.
Life at Carrickstone House Care Home
Our dedicated activity coordinators ensure each person living here always has something stimulating and enjoyable to look forward to, based on their individual interests and requests.
They organise hobbies, group activities, day trips, bus trips, shopping trips, gardening, quizzes and concerts.
Our home hosts regular church services, with Mass held once a month.
When coming into Carrickstone House , we are greatly impressed and psychologically heartened by the high standard and quality which clearly emanates from the home, and the tasteful and immaculate surroundings throughout the whole area
When I was looking for a place to stay my daughter went to all the homes in the area. She is a manager in the social work. She said you would have to go a long way to get anything as good as this and I agree with her.
My relative was at Carrickstone House for eight years and was happy and content to be there because of all the love and attention he received. Thank you.
I cannot thank the staff at Carrickstone House enough for the sensitive way in which they supported us in this shift in the future for my mother. The staff also took time to look after my 92 year old father when he visited.

Four Seasons Health Care were finalists in nine categories at this year’s LaingBuisson Awards, and at the awards ceremony on Wednesday 15th November, the organisation was awarded with a well-deserved award.
The LaingBuisson Awards recognise and celebrate industry excellence and innovative services in the public, private and third sectors.
Four Seasons Health Care scooped the award in the ‘Nursing Practice’ category in recognition of the innovative approach to the advancement of nursing knowledge and nursing education within the care home sector.
Our Care Home Nursing Journal (CNJ) along with our individual Nursing Twitter channel (@FSHCNurses) won plaudits with the judges for being totally unique within the care sector.
Furthermore, there was a recognition of the achievements of the front-line nurses who have written articles, presented at conferences, won scholarships and been finalists at numerous nursing awards in the past 12 months. Again, these achievements are unique within the care sector.
Joanne Strain, Head of Nursing, said: “This is a terrific result for Four Seasons Health Care and real recognition of our growing influence amongst care home nurses in the UK. This is only the start of our journey and I want to dedicate this award to all our tremendous nurses across the FSHC family”.
Carol Cousins, Northern Ireland Managing Director, also commented on the award success. She said: “This award is recognition for inspirational nurse leaders in creating the first clinical nursing journal in the independent care home sector – well done to all involved”.
While CNJ editorial board member, and Clinical Lead Nurse of Cameron House Care Home in Bury, Craig Priestley stated: “I’m so proud we won – the CNJ is one of the best learning resources we have for Four Seasons Nurses. It has shaped and improved nursing practice and helped to improve quality of life – well done to all involved in its production!”
If you’d like to take a look at the award winning journal, it’s available on the Four Seasons website in the publications area.
