Looking for Care?

Ashgill Care Home 

Ashgill is a family run Care Home situated in the heart of Milton, North Glasgow, providing a home for permanent and respite/short stay residents.

Purpose built in 1995, the home is laid out over 2 floors and has specialised staff who are trained to cater for you as an individual. We provide 24 hour nursing care, one each floor, so you’re always in safe hands.

A Home from Home – Short Breaks / Respite Services 

At Ashgill we have vast experience in respite care, providing you and your carer(s) with the opportunity to have a short break, safe in the knowledge that you will be looked after with the utmost care and attention in a friendly and homely caring environment.

Our aim is to make your stay with us a positive experience, so that you think of us first, next time you’re looking for a short break / respite stay. 

What is Respite? 

Respite is the traditional term for a short break or holiday. For the carer Respite provides a break from caring responsibilities, an opportunity to catch up on other tasks or even simply to recharge. For the cared-for person they are a positive experience and an opportunity to enjoy a different environment or activity.

What does it cost? 

Your Social Worker or Care Manager can advise on the cost, as it is your local council who decide the fees and rates we charge, but it will usually be less than your weekly income.

What happens?

Before you come to stay with us

Before you decide on whether Ashgill is the place for you, we would always suggest that you visit us. You are welcome to visit at any time with or without appointment.

This will allow you decide whether Ashgill is the place for you, to pick a room you like and to meet both the staff and other residents beforehand. You may even know some of us already!

Once you decide that you will come to Ashgill we will send you some forms for you to fill so that we know what you like and what we need to do to ensure you enjoy your stay with us.

When you arrive? 

You will be shown your room and assisted with settling in. We will help you with unpacking and getting the room the way you want it. After a cup of tea/coffee (which always helps we find), we will then introduce you to the resident’s and other staff you may have not met.

We understand that coming to a new place can be like the ‘first day at school’ all over again so we will make sure you are make to feel part of the Ashgill family.

During your stay 

While you stay with us, we will do our best to fit into your routine. So if you like staying up late, or getting up early, we will be there for you.

We have lots of activities for both individuals and groups to partake in such as dominos, snooker, knitting and bingo. We also have a lovely garden with a putting/bowling green, outdoor chess board, barbeque, waterfall and fountain. If you like gardening you can have your own patch. Some of our residents even grow their own vegetables.

We also have entertainers come to Ashgill at least once a month, on the last Friday of the month, and also on special occasions like Christmas, St. Andrews day etc.

Although sometimes it’s just nice to sit and chat and at Ashgill we like nothing better than a good blether!

Time to go home 

When it’s your time to go home, we will help you pack all your belongings, making sure you haven’t left anything behind. If you need help our staff will assist with your travel arrangements

Back Home 

We hope you go home having enjoyed your time with us, but to make sure we will ask you what you thought of your stay with us. We are always trying to get better and so your feedback is most welcome.

We would always hope to see you again and become one of our regular visitors who stay with us through the year.
