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.

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.
