Our Care Homes are open and we are welcoming new residents
Find out more about how we are helping Residents to stay safe and well here.
Welcome to Norwood Nursing Care Home in historic Barrhead, East Renfrewshire, where our team provides person-centred care for Residents in a warm and friendly environment. Our elegant Home where we provide high-quality nursing and dementia care is set in pretty landscaped gardens in what has been called one of the best places to live in Scotland.
With 54 bedrooms, communal spaces for socialising and a cinema room where Residents can watch classic films on a weekend afternoon together, Norwood Care Home in Barrhead is the perfect place to enjoy life’s later years. Residents are encouraged to join a busy activity programme which is varied and provides both mental and physical stimulation. It’s also a super chance to make friends and try out new pastimes within a safe and welcoming community.
A popular choice with families, Norwood is eight miles south west of Glasgow on the edge of Gleniffer Braes, close to major bus routes and is easily accessible from the M77 motorway.
CARE FOR YOU
Person-centred care is all about paying attention to the details of daily life that are important to Residents and encouraging them to make informed decisions about their own care. We ensure Colleagues make time to talk everything through with Residents, helping them live a meaningful life in the way they choose.
Alongside our own nursing care, we are supported by a Registered GP who makes regular on-site visits. Team members are also always happy to assist Residents in making appointments with specialist practitioners such as dentists, opticians and chiropodists. And if Residents feel like a spot of pampering, our in-Home hair salon is available to help Residents to look and feel good.
Living life to the full
At Norwood Care Home in Barrhead we offer a busy programme of activities encouraging Residents to inject their own personality into the events and classes on offer. Whether it is gardening, embroidery, or sculpture it’s never too late to learn a new skill. Currently, our most popular activities include bingo, quiz nights, karaoke and arts & crafts.
We are proud to be part of the thriving Barrhead community so annual trips to the panto, as well as intergenerational links and activities with nearby schools are much enjoyed. Our daytrips and excursions are also a highlight and include visits to local museums and shopping centres.
Dining and nutrition
Mealtimes are truly something to look forward to at Norwood where our talented team of chefs are always developing new and nutritious seasonal menus. They never miss an opportunity to celebrate an occasion, whether it is a Resident’s birthday with a home-baked, personalised cake, or a Haggis on Burns Night, it is always a treat. We welcome suggestions and always cater for personal tastes and Residents can leave feedback on the menus via questionnaires.
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 home away from home
On arrival, each Resident is invited to personalise their room using their own small furnishings and objects, creating a feeling of home right from their first day.
Residents can enjoy our bright communal lounges, cinema room or cosy quiet spaces. Our dedicated gardener also works hard to provide a tranquil and relaxing outdoor haven for Residents to enjoy, particularly in the summer months.

What residents and families say about us
Here are some of our latest reviews from CareHome.co.uk, the leading care home review website.
Staff and management are very good and caring.
If you are looking for somewhere that you can trust to take care of your loved one, Norwood is a place that you should consider. The staff at Norwood have been kind to my stepfather and when Mum visits they take time to listen and show genuine concern for her health too. The rooms are clean, the residents look cared for and the catering staff take note of resident preferences.
My mum has had excellent care and support since becoming a resident in October 2019 but even more so during the COVID epidemic. I have nothing but the utmost praise for all staff during this time. They have kept her safe, entertained and healthy.
Massive thanks to them all from a very grateful family. Well done.
