Welcome to Cumbrae Lodge Care Home
You'll find Cumbrae Lodge Care in Irvine, North Ayrshire.
Here we provide quality care based on individual need, and on respect for older adults and their right to make choices and maintain dignity. We offer 24-hour nursing, palliative care, and respite care for older adults with dementia and other mental health difficulties.
GP services visit each weekday morning, and we also have ready access to chiropodists, dieticians, physiotherapists, speech and language therapists, and dentists. Our aim is to achieve a comfortable, warm and safe environment, which offers a feeling of security, and enhances quality of life.
Our home was purpose built in 1996, on one level with no stairs. Each of our six units has an airy lounge area, and a secluded, tranquil garden. To aid residents with their day-to-day living we have specialised kit, including handling and bathing equipment.
We love residents to bring in personal items and small pieces of furniture to make their own bedrooms more familiar and homely.
Life at Cumbrae Lodge Care Home
Our two activities coordinators organise a wide range of goings-on, in and out of the home. These are planned to meet each resident's needs, and we also respect a person's wish for peace and quiet, and to choose how they spend their day.
Outside entertainers regularly come in to perform, and we have our own minibus for visits to local places of interest, and for hospital appointments as needed.
We also have an active gardening committee, a hairdresser on site each weekday, and weekly meetings with residents' relatives to get their ideas.
Our in-house chefs ensure a choice of menus, and create fresh, nutritious meals that meet each resident's cultural, medical and personal requirements.
I attend the activity room twice a day. We do the quiz in the daily record and in the afternoon at 4pm the men have a domino tournament. I have been to the safari park, local museums and enjoy going out in the bus for a fish supper and sitting eating it by the sea.
I have lived here for 7 years, my wife or family visit me every day. I really enjoy the activities especially when beating the manager at the morning quiz. The food is good as we always put up suggestions for different things.
Prior to our father coming here we looked at 6 other care homes but chose this one as we were so impressed with the management and the care being offered. We have not been let down.
As a retired nurse I can see the dedication and care that my sister receives. Everyone from the administrator to the kitchen staff know and spend time with my sister. I leave after every visit knowing that she is in very capable hands.

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.
