Larkfield View is a 90 bed, registered care facility, providing dedicated general nursing care for people over the age of 65 and to those with dementia related conditions, and as such is divided into three distinct units, each catering for the individual needs of the residents.

The home is located in Greenock and is only a short distance away from both Greenock and Gourock town centres, and is also within close proximity to Inverclyde Royal Hospital and Branchton train station. The home is situated close to the sea fronts at Gourock, and the Esplanade at Greenock, overlooking some spectacular scenery, and making for some fantastic day trips!

All of the bedrooms have bright and spacious single bed accommodation with en-suite facilities for privacy and convenience, in addition each unit within the home has its own lounge and dining facility where residents can enjoy home cooked meals and afternoon tea with family and friends.

A varied activities programme is available to residents with dedicated activities coordinators focussing on fun, fitness, reminiscing, wellbeing and comfort. An integrated Hairdressing salon is also available on site at various times each week. 

A newly revamped Garden with seating areas in sun and shaded areas, a recently introduced putting green and children's play area to facilitate visiting children from Intergenerational projects and family members/friends alike. This beautiful space is used regularly for outdoor events including summer BBQ's and fetes. 

Community is also a large part of life at Larkfield View with local ARTventurers Inverclyde and North Ayrshire utilising the home for children's (and resident's) art classes on a monthly basis. Intergenerational projects with local nursery Ailey Mill and St Columbas High School have seen games, stories and meals spent together and Inverclyde High School pupils assisted with the garden revamp project where they worked with residents to brighten up garden furniture.  

The home also benefits from a private mini bus for outings and trips to places of local interest such as trips "doon the water" and farther afield.

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.

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.
