Safe Visits

Welcome to Golfhill Care Home in Glasgow. Our purpose-built Home is located in the vibrant residential area of Dennistoun, once voted one of the world’s ‘coolest’ neighbourhoods! Conveniently positioned north of the River Clyde, just over a mile east of the heart of Glasgow, we’re well served by public transport with easy city centre access.

Golfhill is organised into four spacious self-contained bungalows each specialising in a different type of care, from dementia support to helping those living with Parkinson’s. The Houses, which also cater for people who may be convalescing or require palliative care, are staffed around-the-clock by our dedicated Colleagues providing the very best person-centred care.

At Golfhill we help Residents get the most out of life, encouraging Residents to maintain their hobbies and also to take up new ones, as well as making new friends at the same time. We’ve generous lounges for socialising and for quieter days our beautifully landscaped and award-winning gardens offer an idyllic retreat.

Person-centred care

At Golfhill everyone is treated with dignity, compassion and respect as well as receiving all the expert care and attention they need. Each Resident has a personalised care plan that provides a detailed overview of their personal preferences such as when they like to wake up, the meals and foods they like to eat, along with all their care requirements.

We use the services of a local GP practice who make regular on-site visits, and Colleagues are always happy to organise appointments with dentists, opticians, podiatrists, chiropodists, among other practitioners. We also have onsite physiotherapy available to help keep Residents mobile and to strengthen any mobility they may have lost. If a little bit of pampering is required, our friendly in-home hairdressing salon will certainly do the trick, and to help Residents unwind we can provide some relaxation therapy too.

care home activities

Living life to the full

Maintaining an active lifestyle is an important part of wellbeing and we encourage all Residents to take part in our varied programme of events and activities provided by our dedicated Activity Coordinator.

Popular choices include quizzes, tea parties, reminiscence sessions, movie nights, arts and crafts as well as a spot of gentle gardening in our private and secure gardens. Where possible, we invite entertainers into our Care Home in Glasgow including cabaret acts and dance troupes, and for our animal loving Residents we have regular visits from a mobile petting zoo. Golfhill Care Home is part of a vibrant community and we enjoy partnerships with schools and local organisations. Residents enjoy visits to community events, and trips out to nearby allotments, museums and shopping centres in and around Glasgow.

Dining and nutrition

Mealtimes are the heart and soul of family home life, so we make sure that all dining in our Home is an opportunity for meaningful social interaction, either catching up with friends about the day’s events or chatting with Colleagues. Our professional chefs provide three delicious meals a day featuring fresh and seasonal ingredients. They also get to know the tastes as well as dietary requirements of each Resident to ensure all their nutritional needs are met. We’re always looking to add new dishes to our menus, taking into account changing preferences and Residents are encouraged to contribute to the menu via questionnaires.

Covid-secure visiting

Our number one priority is keeping Residents safe and connected with their loved ones. We have recently created a COVID-secure, indoor visiting space to ensure that Residents can socialise with their family and friends in warmth and comfort.

A message from our Manager

Golfhill Manager

“Golfhill is a fantastic Home, with a wonderful warm community of Residents and I’m proud to lead the team here. I’ve been the Home Manager since November 2019, and during that time have thoroughly enjoyed getting to know all Residents and their families. For me, person-centred care is all about listening to Residents and their families about what they need and ensuring we provide just that!”
