Craigielea is an 85 bed, purpose built, care facility that has been designed with the aim of creating an enjoyable, bright living space that supports residents in their day to day lives; and as such, has been divided into four distinct units, each specialising in the following types of care;

  • Adults over 65/ frail elderly adults
  • Young people with physical disabilities
  • Residents with varying degrees of dementia

The home is conveniently located within close proximity of Glasgow city centre and enjoys easy access to the M8 and Glasgow airport. There are a number of local amenities just a short drive away from the home, including Braehead shopping centre and the beautiful Robertson Park. 

All of the bedrooms have bright and spacious single bed accommodation with en-suite wet rooms for privacy and convenience. There are numerous lounge and dining facilities available throughout the home for residents to enjoy home cooked meals, whilst also providing a relaxed environment for socialising with family and friends.

The home has a dedicated activities centre, in addition to its own minibus, which is frequently used for visits, excursions and trips to local places of interest.

An enjoyable, secure, and easily accessible garden area with a patio and gazebo has been specially designed to accommodate many outdoor events, including summer BBQ’s and fetes. It’s a fabulous place to be and when the sun is out, it’s even better!

Meet The Manager

Sheila is a qualified General Nurse with years of experience in the industry, working mainly in surgical wards where she was promoted to Theatre Sister.

Sheila has worked in the care home sector for the last 25 years and is an advocate for the Playlist for Life Scheme, which she promotes passionately at Craigielea Care Home. This scheme is very beneficial for dementia sufferers as being able to respond to music can help the person recall memories from the past and significant events in their life.

Almond View Care Home

To all the staff at Almond View - a big thank you for looking after Mum, with such kindness and dedication. Despite living 400 miles away, I always had a good feeling that she was in good hands. When I did visit, the staff without exception, stopped to chat to us even though they were extremely busy. Please accept my heart felt thank you to you all - a real credit to Almond View.


Bankview Care Home

Thank you for the excellent level of care that my father, Frank Boyle, has received. Bankview demonstrated for us the template for a care home and how it should feel and be run. Friendly, welcoming, excellent care levels, length of time staff remain loyal to the home and above all a clear and comforting atmosphere of great leadership.

Both mum and I were most impressed with Beechwood and we have decided that is where we would like Dad to come to. You have put both mine and mum's minds at rest knowing that Dad will be looked after.

K Macdonald in memory of my Aunt Jean

I can't exaggerate the admiration I have for the management and staff of Craigielea. I've never experienced so much patience, coaxing, kindness and care. These people share their lives and emotions, laugh and cry and mourn for the people who entrust themselves to care.

J Ellis in memory of Steve

The staff talked about my best friend being an inspiration to them, despite his illness It made me change my approach with him, instead of being despondent and sad, I spoke with him the way we had always been with each other. The staff saw him as a person.
