Welcome to Craighead Care Home

You'll find Craighead in the Fife village of Newport-on-Tay, just three miles from Dundee.

As indicated by our bronze PEARL accreditation, we offer residential support, and more specialist nursing care for people with dementia.

All residents get a dedicated nurse and key worker, to help them feel more secure and make their stay as comfortable as possible.

Our home is set in large, well-maintained grounds close to the River Tay. Residents enjoy spectacular views as they explore their peaceful, secure surroundings, which include three separate gardens, various communal living spaces, a greenhouse and gazebo.

Inside, we have large living spaces where residents can watch TV or enjoy music. And there's a special warm and peaceful area for those who are frail and elderly to relax or socialise in.

There's a bus stop right outside the home too. So Dundee city centre, and the local amenities of our charming village, are quick and easy to access. There's a regular service, with great transport links to surrounding areas.

Colleagues from Laurels Lodge Care Home in Woodside, Havencourt Care Home in Stonehaven and Cumbrae Lodge Care Home in Irvine all came together to do a skydive, raising money for residents in their care and Alzheimer's Scotland.

Tracey Rhodes, Resident Experience Facilitator for Scotland, said: "Everyone was really excited for the jump. One of them hadn't even been in a plane, and they completed it, which was a huge accomplishment. They managed to raise £4,000 which is fantastic. Well done everyone."

Congratulations everyone! We’re all proud of you.

We’ll be launching the 2017 Four Seasons Care Awards in the summer. In the meantime, we thought it would be nice to catch up with some of the winners of last year’s awards, to see what it’s been like since they’ve gone back to the floor.

This week we’ll be focusing on Sheena Walker, a member of the Learning and Development Team in Scotland who won the Central Support Team Member accolade.

Sheena is definitely a force to be reckoned with in Scotland, and her passion for helping others develop in their health care career is something to be admired. That’s why when she won the Central Support Team Member of the Year award she was surprised and over whelmed.

“It was a little bit intimidating receiving so much recognition,” explains Sheena. “It is nice to be recognised, but for me it’s not a job. I am very passionate about nursing. I was a nurse myself for a long time. I want to nurture and grow this passion in others who embark on their own nursing journey.”

Since winning the award Sheena has been continuing to support and develop Four Seasons colleagues in Scotland as they complete their Scottish Vocational Qualifications (SVQ).

Sheena is a very humble lady. John Kirk, Managing Director for Scotland, Wales and the Isle of Man had this to say about her. “Sheena is a fantastic lady, and a great asset for us to have up here in Scotland. The support she provides her colleagues to help them progress through qualifications is second to none. I’m glad she’s been recognised in this way.”

Information about Four Seasons Care Awards 2016 is available on the awards section of our website.

Say hello to the newest member of the Craighead Care Home team, Parker the Pug.

Donna Stewart, Resident Experience Support Manager for Fife and Central, said: “Parker is only 12 weeks old, but he’s already put his first shift in. He belongs to me and has been enjoying catch ups with our residents here at Craighead. He’s gone down an absolute storm in the home, and the residents are already planning on what to do with him when he next visits.”
