care types we offer

Caring for complex needs

This is for residents with more complex healthcare needs, and who require the supervision of fully qualified nurses. This might involve frequent medication regimes, wound care, constant assessment, monitoring and care planning.  

Round-the-clock specialised service

Our registered nurses are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and specialise in providing therapeutic care for our residents. They are supported by our highly skilled carers, who assist with all aspects of personal care and support.  

If you care for a loved one, we know how hard you work. But we also know how important it is to have time out to rest and recuperate, so that you can continue to do such an amazing job. Our summer breaks give you the chance to relax knowing your loved one is being taken care of.

Plan your break with our book ahead service

Being able to book ahead means you can plan your break, safe in the knowledge that your loved one will be well cared for.

Nursing & Palliative Care

Providing dedicated care in the heart of Inverness, Kingsmills boasts a range of professional and personal services to match the needs of each and every one of our wonderful residents. Our nursing unit specialises in palliative care and is led by our deputy home manager who is a registered general nurse.

Caring for complex needs

The time you need 

Respite care is for those wishing to stay with us on a short-term basis, whether you temporarily need extra support or are recovering from an illness or operation.

Availability is dependent upon the number of respite beds we have unoccupied. However some care homes do offer a book ahead service. There is no minimum or maximum length of stay. We are flexible so that we can help carers who need a break.

Focusing on strengths

For those living with dementia, communicating their needs and wishes can be difficult, which in turn can lead to isolation. Our dementia care programme focuses on an individual’s strengths to help find ways in which they can re-engage with their families, friends and the community.  

The everyday made easy

Provided by trained carers, residential care offers assistance with everyday activities, such as washing, dressing, eating, and mobility. Our residents can be comfortable and confident in the knowledge that these areas of their life won’t be a struggle, so they can get on doing the things they love.
