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.

Our Dementia Care Framework Plaque

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

A carer and a resident

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.

Mrs Eleanor Winton, professional at Gowrie House Care Home

I truly thank everyone at Gowrie for all the care given to mum and for your support over the years.

Mr F Bristow, relative of resident at Gowrie House Care Home

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.

Mrs U. Hill, relative of resident at Gowrie House Care Home

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.”

Information about Four Seasons Care Awards 2016 is available on the awards section of our website.
