Kintyre Care Home is an award winning 16-bedroom specialist dementia care facility in Kirkintilloch, Glasgow, offering high levels of specialised nursing care to older people with dementia, including Alzheimer’s and stroke related dementia. Setting the standards in dementia care, only the highest levels of nursing and personal care are provided at Kintyre Care Home, as we believe each resident should live a full life, even with dementia. Our comprehensive training plan ensures that all our staff are trained to understand dementia and how best to care for each residents individual needs

The care home’s design and interior finishes have been selected to help and stimulate our residents and includes a reminiscence room, a new spa featuring a hairdressers and nail bar, in addition to attractive secure gardens that make the most of the stunning views of the Campsie Hills in East Dunbartonshire.
