Please familiarise yourself with our Coronavirus Statement

Thank you for your interest in our home, Craigielea.
Our aim here is to keep your loved one safe and secure in a loving environment maintaining as much of their independence as possible and continuing their daily lives in a home from home setting.
Personally, I feel that an open door policy is necessary in any home and I always encourage people to feel at ease to come and speak to me with any problems or even just for a general chat. I regard the care of our residents as paramount importance and do my very best to ensure they are cared for at no less a standard than I would expect for my own relatives. 
We hope on viewing our home you get a feel for the work that we do to enhance the lives of our residents. If you have any questions regarding the home or the care that we provide, you are more than welcome to pop by – I am always happy to help!
– Sarah Johnston, Care Home Manager


At Craigielea we pride ourselves on creating a real ‘home from home’, with each room of our 60 rooms beautifully decorated and maintained, 32 of which are en-suite with the rest equipped with a restroom. We encourage our residents to bring along their own ornaments, furniture and keepsakes to make the place their own.

What’s more, our team work hard to ensure the best standards of quality are consistently met so that our residents can see the full benefit of around the clock specialist care and assistance, companionship, and for many, the renewed confidence and independence that having a team of dedicated support staff can bring. – Malcolm Hanson, Care Home Manager.

Presently, Craigielea operates as a modern care facility set amid beautiful landscaped gardens, housing up to 60 residents with a specialist dementia unit.
