Around the clock, our qualified nurses and care assistants provide excellent nursing and social care with patience, kindness and understanding. We serve physically frail older people, and those with dementia.
Care is based around individual needs, with a plan for each resident developed and regularly reviewed. People stay here on a long-term, short-term or respite basis.
Our home overlooks lovely Elie Bay and the Lothians beyond. Shops and amenities are in easy reach, and you can easily get to us by car or public transport.
Earlsferry House is a carefully converted private residence on two floors, the upper one serviced by a lift. We have several relaxing lounges with lovely sea views.
We have a combination of single bedrooms and bedrooms suitable for sharing. Most have en-suites.

We encourage people living here to tell us their interests so we can help them pursue them. Our activities coordinator organises a range of suitable pursuits.
This includes visits to the hairdresser inside the home; pampered hands, face and feet therapy; crafts and games; baking; and gardening.
People living here can get involved as little or much as they want - there's no pressure to join in.
Our local library provides talking books; and we also host quizzes, and performances by visiting entertainers.
We also run bus trips and mystery tours;and visits to the botanic gardens, Ceres folk museum, Weymss School of Needlework, the local fisheries museum, and more. Around the area, there are summer festivals and other events.
I think that Earlsferry House is very nice. It's decorated very nicely and kept in a very good state.The food here is very good and you can't fault it. There are plenty of activities if you want to do anything - I like the bus trips.
The Building is well sited with magnificent views across the Forth and Elie Bay. It is in excellent decorative order and kept in clean condition. The staff are competent, efficient and polite, and take good care of the Residents.
There is a general feeling of homeliness and kindness which shines through about Earlsferry House.The staff like to crack the occasional joke with the Residents and keep them smiling.
The staff are all very friendly and we can enjoy a good laugh together, all have a good sense of humour. A friendly place to relax and enjoy.
I thought it an appropriate time to write this appreciation not only of the care given to my wife but for the whole amazing 'positive management ambience'. The staff work as a big happy family, are tremendously caring, and always greet one in a pleasant and courteous way. The level of care, sensitive understanding and empathy shown to both residents and relatives is exemplary.

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.”

Congratulations go to the team at Earlsferry Care Home in Leven, after being commended for their care and kindness.
John Kirk, Managing Director for Scotland, Wales and the Isle of Man and Mike Shea, Regional Manager for Fife and Central, presented six Recognition of Care and Kindness (ROCK) awards to various members of the team and Earlsferry House.
Karen Bell said: “I’m very proud of the team here, they regularly go the extra mile to make a difference to the residents they care for. These six awards show that every member of the team in the home cares for the residents that live here. Well done everyone! These awards are very well deserved.”
After the presentation, everyone enjoyed a good old party.
John Kirk, Managing Director for Scotland, Wales and Isle of Man, said: “The team were all nominated for these awards by residents of relatives in their care. I don’t think there is any higher commendation than that. It’s fantastic to see that the team here are making a difference not only to the residents’ lives but to their families as well. I want to echo Karen’s sentiments and congratulate you all once again.”

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.”
