Goldielea Residential Care Home

Welcome to Goldielea Care Home in Dumfries, Scotland, where our experienced team provides holistic, person-centred care for Residents in a warm and friendly environment. Located on the outskirts of Dumfries our Grade 2 listed Home, once frequented by Scottish poet Robert Burns, is set in 10 acres of breath-taking parkland, always a marvel to enjoy.

Our Home is staffed 24-hours a day by our qualified nursing team who work alongside our care and support teams to ensure Residents have a personal care plan tailored to their needs.

Residents are encouraged to personalise their spacious rooms with their own belongings bringing a touch of their own taste and style into the Home. Our 47 ensuite rooms, each with countryside views, have been designed to high standards offering Residents a blank canvas on which to add their own personality.

We maintain a busy activity schedule and our newly introduced Fun Fridays have proved particularly popular. So, whether it is entertainment provided within the Home or a trip further afield, there is something to suit all tastes and interests.

Person-centred care

Residents are treated with dignity and compassion at Goldielea and our experienced carers work diligently with each Resident to ensure every care need is met. Each Resident has a named carer as well as a qualified nurse if required. This enables Residents to build trusting and strong relationships with these individuals. Additionally, each Resident has a personal care plan which is reviewed monthly and every six months a more formal review is arranged with each Resident and family members where possible.

We use the local medical practices in Dumfries and treatments such as physiotherapy and chiropody services can be arranged through the GP there. Our team can also help set up appointments with opticians, dentists or other practitioners when required by Residents. We also have a qualified hairdresser who visits Goldielea every week.

Living life to the full

As well as enjoying a range of activities inside the Home, including pamper afternoons and Fun Fridays, we do like to get out and about. In the summer our Residents can often be found savouring ice cream in nearby Kippford or Rockcliffe and a drive along our beautiful Solway coast is always good for the soul. Goldielea is part of a strong community with Residents enjoying the popular Friday tea dance at St Andrew’s Church, concerts at the DG1 Leisure Complex as well as events with local schoolchildren.

Dining and nutrition

Maintaining a healthy, well-balanced diet helps us feel our best so we all need to eat food from a variety of food groups to get the energy and nutrients our bodies need. This is why our professional chefs provide three delicious well-balanced meals a day making sure everyone’s personal preferences and dietary requirements are catered for, using the freshest and most seasonal ingredients. Our elegant dining room provides the perfect dining experience where every meal can become an occasion, whilst tasty snacks and drinks are available throughout the day.

The B Happie Mission

The B Happie Mission

Our mission to promote happy residents and happy staff is underlined by our groundbreaking ‘B Happie Charter’. We achieve these values by conducting person centred activities and events with a whole home approach, by recognising and appreciating the amazing work that our teams do and by prioritising mental health and wellness.
