At Struan Lodge, we are proud to provide the highest standard of Nursing, Dementia and Palliative care for all of our residents. We have worked incredibly hard to ensure all out staff are well equipped, well informed, well trained and ready and eager to care for all our residents, following government advice and protocols to keep our home COVID-19 secure.
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 team is fully trained to understand and deal with all aspects of dementia, and we take pride in providing the highest levels of care and respect for every individual. We offer a range of activities and alternative therapies that are designed to help people with memory impairment.
We offer specialist end of life care for residents with the aim of making them as comfortable as possible. We understand that this can be a sensitive time and our team is always on hand to offer support, advice or just an opportunity to talk.

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.
"Struan Lodge is a wonderful place, the staff are outstanding at their jobs, very caring thoughtful and friendly. It is very well organised and managed, very clean."
"The staff are lovely you can tell they want to be there my mum is looking very happy and that is due to the staff."
Daughter of Resident
Activities are wide ranging and include chilled out movie days, playing games such as cards as well as enoying delicious afternoon teas complete with lots of homebaking and plenty of cups of tea. Our new activities lounge (which allows for a maximum of 2 to 3 residents) means during social distancing restrictions owing to COVID-19, residents still have plenty of things they can get involved with.
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.
