At Struan Lodge, we are proud to provide the highest standard of Nursing, Dementia and Palliative care for all of our Residents.
Nursing & Dementia Care
We provide 24-hour nursing care for all our residents at Struan Lodge. All Staff have been trained and inducted to a very high standard to ensure they are able to meet the needs of all residents. The Home Manager is supported by a deputy manager, qualified nurses and care assistants. Nursing care is delivered using a method known as key nursing. Each resident is allocated a nurse who will soon become a familiar face and will answer any queries or anxieties you or your relatives may have. Our Home Manager, Carolyn McDonald, operates an open door policy and welcomes all visitors to feel comfortable in approaching her and discussing care. In the absence of your nurse, another member of staff known as a key worker will care for you.

Nurse Call System
Should you require the assistance at any time of the day or night, there is a call system fitted throughout the building including your bedroom, so you will receive attention at the press of a button.
In the event of either illness or an emergency, only your next of kin will be notified unless otherwise recorded in your personal plan. A GP will visit residents within the home weekly and will be available for call out visits should any concerns arise.
We encourage visits by Clergy of all denominations to the nursing home to provide for the spiritual needs of the residents. Alternatively, you may wish to attend your own church with family.
We also offer a range of activities where we encourage families to join in - no two days are the same at Struan Lodge.
Staying Healthy in Later Life
Our aim is to give our residents the best quality of life as possible; we know how important is to remain as healthy and as active as possible. Our Head Chef will meet with the residents to discuss nutritional needs and these will be incorporated into their personal plan.
