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.

Friday 16th June marked Care Home Open Day, a day that actively encourages people in the local community to pop into their local care home and find out what’s going on.
The theme for this year’s open day was friendship, and Four Seasons homes and their local community certainly forged some long lasting friendships with their local communities through a variety of different events.
The events included:
- The Prince’s Trust heading into Kingsmead Care Home in Swindon sprucing up the garden
- Ty Eirin Care Home in Port welcomed in local school children and councillors for a fun filled afternoon
- A Jazz band kept everyone entertained in Pontypridd at Ty Gwynno Care Home
- It was a more sleepy affair at Whittington Care Home in Chesterfield as the team turned up for work in the PJs before having lots of fun with residents, relatives and visitors to the home
- Music and dancing was definitely on the cards for many of our homes as Benarty View Care Home in Kelty, Gotton Manor Care Home in Taunton, Benholm Care Home in Forfar and Laurels Lodge Care Home in Woodside, all had musical entertainment (and an assortment of other activities) for their guests
- Campsie View Care Home in Glasgow had their own petting zoo for everyone to enjoy
- The Laurels Care Home in Hetton-le-Hole held a country and western themed day which everyone thoroughly enjoyed
- Jazz was the music of choice at The Cedars and Larches Care Home in Ilkeston’s festivities.
- Redwell Hills Care Home in Consett, remembered the friends they’d sadly lost and released some balloons with messages in their honour.
The photos you can see above are just a snap shot of what happened at our homes during Care Home Open Day. It’s great to see from the pictures that everyone had lots of fun.

Residents, relatives and the care team all out their best Easter bonnets and boaters on as they held their annual Easter Parade at Cumbrae Lodge Care Home in Irvine.
Michelle Cushnaghan, Home Manager, explained: “Everyone had spent a long time creating their perfect bonnet and boater for the Easter parade. Once everyone was ready all of the headwear was modelled with the honour of choosing a winner falling to yours truly.
“It was a difficult decision because as you can see by the pictures they were all really good. I awarded them all first place, and we all tucked into some lovely chocolate left by the Easter bunny.”
