Welcome to Craigieknowes Care Home
You'll find Craigieknowes in the popular residential area of Craigie in Perth.
Here our team of well trained and dedicated registered nurses and care assistants provides 24-hour care to suit individual need. We look after people with physical illnesses and dementia, provide short respite breaks, and have achieved the PEARL dementia award.
Our well equipped, comfortable home has a pleasant patio area with water feature and, during summer, planters filled with flowers and vegetables chosen by residents.
Inside, we have two bright, spacious lounges, one with an attractive sun room attached.
Most bedrooms have attractive views over Perth; all have TVs, and great safety systems. We love residents to personalise these spaces and choose their own colour schemes to make them more homely.
Life at Craigieknowes Care Home
Our dedicated activity coordinators ensure all who stay here have something interesting and enjoyable to choose from. Life-history work helps us ensure hobbies and interests people enjoyed before coming here can be are maintained.
Residents choose the wide variety of activities at the home, and our gardening, crafts and baking fans have their own dedicated committees.
We have a hairdresser on site who is happy to style everyone's hair as often as they wish; a Red Cross volunteer visits regularly to do manicures and massages.
We celebrate special occasions such as birthdays, Burns Night and Valentine's Day.
Our nutritionally balanced menus are based on resident choices, with all meals prepared fresh on-site daily.
When I've needed help concerning my mother there is always an open door to discuss matters with the manager and any of the staff, including the ancillary staff who are always very helpful and pleasant.
The whole family is very happy with the care he receives, and the place is always clean and tidy. All the staff are pleasant and friendly, which makes such a difference when you have to leave someone you love in a care home.
The meals here are really excellent. I like the staff, especially the carers, who share a joke with me and always have time for a chat. The activities keep me entertained, and there is a good variety of things to do.
The carers take time to speak to me, especially if I am upset. They take me out for visits to local places and for meals when they can. The older people here always look happy and well looked after.

Four Seasons Health Care picked up three accolades on Tuesday 5th December 2017 at the Training Journal (TJ) Awards. Winning three categories meant that Four Seasons Health Care led the way, as they were the only organisation to win in multiple categories.
Who were the winners?
The Dementia Care Framework won the ‘Best Change Management Programme’, which is a fantastic achievement and further highlights the positive impact this is having on the lives of people living in Four Seasons homes with dementia.
The Judges commented: “We recognise Four Health Care work in the field of dementia care as innovative and thorough in its approach, being both effective and transformative. It had a bold vision that was well executed in a challenging environment.”
The Care Home Nursing Journal (CNJ), Four Seasons’ very own internal publication to develop nurse knowledge and share best practice won its category of ‘Best Organisational Development Programme'.
The Judges commented: “The design of this intervention, which on the surface appears very simple, completely meets the needs of the organisation and has had significant impact. A particular strength was that Four Seasons Health Care decided to make these resources freely available to anyone, making the impact even greater and is improving healthcare outcomes in care homes everywhere.”
Finally, Louise Morris the Care Home Assistant Practitioner (CHAP) Lead won the main award of the night and was crowned the ‘Learning and Development Professional of the Year’.
The Judges stated: “Louise has had a transformational impact, not only on the learning and development of staff at Four Seasons Health Care, but also on the well-being of residents. Through a review of an existing programme, Louise drove design and improvement which has had significant benefits through improved care, staff practice and confidence and commitment to their work and professional development.”
Congratulations to everyone on this fantastic achievement!

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.”
