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.

On Monday 27th March 2017 Four Seasons scooped the ‘Flu Fighter Social Care Award’ at the prestigious Flu Fighter awards.
The Flu Fighter award celebrate the great achievements of flu teams and organisations who promote the importance of flu vaccinations to everyone in their organisation.
Four Seasons was shortlisted for the ‘Social Care Award’ after being nominated following the success of the internal Flu and You campaign. Before being presented with the award, Daniel Mortimer, Chief Executive for NHS Employers said: “Four Seasons Heath Care launched its campaign with the goal of reducing the occurrence of flu in its colleagues. They created leaflets and flu packs that provided details about the importance of the flu vaccination and how to get vaccinated. This worked really well and they had an extra 1,600 colleagues vaccinated, which increased uptake by 22% this season. Well done.”

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.”
