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.
Life at Craighead Care Home
Craighead residents enjoy a wonderful, full programme of pastimes, entertainment and minibus outings, organised by our activities coordinator.
Our exciting garden fete, held every summer, is a great opportunity for everyone to come together and socialise within our beautiful surroundings.
We hold a monthly church service in the home, and a hairdresser visits every week. Our special sensory room and reminiscence lounge is popular with residents and available for relatives to use if they wish.
At Craighead, we offer tasty home cooking and have a wonderfully varied menu. Special diets are catered for, plus we audit our menus regularly to make sure we continue to meet the needs of all who live here.
Thanks to all the staff for providing an excellent service to my dad you did a brilliant job.
My brothers and I would like to thank you very much for the care and attention you have given to our mother whilst she lived at Craighead.
I would like to say thank you for the care and attention you gave to Alfie over the past 3 year. You were also very kind to me.

People embark on a career path because it’s something they love, they yearn to develop, grow and blossom in their profession.
Here at Four Seasons Health Care, Care Assistants can up-skill themselves on the organisations Care Home Assistant Practitioner (CHAP) Programme.
On Thursday 20th December 2017, a graduation ceremony was held at Shawcross Social Club in Wigan, celebrating the achievements of 47 newly qualified CHAPs.
Rachael Junge, Managing Director for Four Seasons in the North West of England, said: “Here at Four Seasons Health Care we take great pride in our CHAP Programme, and everyone who undertakes the intense 12 week course. I want to congratulate all of the CHAPs for graduating; your hard work and dedication have paid off. These are the first CHAPs in my area, and I’m absolutely delighted at all of your achievements.
“The Programme is innovative and helps the CHAPs to provide invaluable support to the nurses in the homes.
“All the CHAPs have come through this long journey and I want to thank you for your commitment. I also want to thank the Nurse mentors who have guided and supported the CHAPs every step of the way. Well done everyone!”
The newly qualified CHAPs are now able to provide some general nursing duties such as medication rounds. This benefits the home as it enables the nurse to deal with more complex issues.
