Welcome to Gowrie House Care Home
You'll find Gowrie House in the heart of the seaside town of Kirkcaldy, Fife. Here our professional team ensures each person living here gets the right level of care for their individual needs - whether those are modest, or 24-hour assistance.
We believe in enabling residents to enjoy as much independence as possible, within a safe, secure environment.
Many of our care staff members participate in a Dementia Experience which simulates the sensory, cognitive and emotional elements of living with dementia. This has led to Gowrie House Care Home achieving accreditation to the Dementia Care Framework for the quality of its dementia care.
Our refurbished property, decorated with ideas from residents, is close to train stations and bus stops. Inside, six spacious lounges overlook our private grounds; and there are bathroom suites and shower rooms. Further home comforts include a hairdressing salon.
Life at Gowrie House Care Home
For the people living here, we run a varied programme of individual and group activities. These range from specialist practices for people with memory impairment, to reminiscence sessions to ease people's frustration and short-term memory loss.
We invite residents to carry out small tasks, such as helping to lay the tables or water the plants. These can help people retain their self-esteem and involvement in daily life.
We also get involved with the local community, and encourage residents and relatives to participate in social activities in and beyond the home.
Morale of staff is high and I get the feeling that staff feel motivated and empowered and that reflects on attitudes and care of residents. I have had a long association with the home over 14 yrs and I would say it is the best it has ever been.
I truly thank everyone at Gowrie for all the care given to mum and for your support over the years.
I know I speak on behalf of all the family when I say how very touched we were by the care you all give my mum throughout the time she was with you.

Colleagues from Laurels Lodge Care Home in Woodside, Havencourt Care Home in Stonehaven and Cumbrae Lodge Care Home in Irvine all came together to do a skydive, raising money for residents in their care and Alzheimer's Scotland.
Tracey Rhodes, Resident Experience Facilitator for Scotland, said: "Everyone was really excited for the jump. One of them hadn't even been in a plane, and they completed it, which was a huge accomplishment. They managed to raise £4,000 which is fantastic. Well done everyone."
Congratulations everyone! We’re all proud of you.
