Welcome to Earlsferry House Care Home
You'll find Earlsferry House in the coastal town of Elie and Earlsferry, Fife.
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.
Life at Earlsferry House Care Home
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.

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.
