Our Care at St Margarets Care Home

We offer brighterkind care – a person-centred approach that is delivered through quality care, recreation and activities, and food and dining.

In 2023, here at St Margaret’s Care Home we supported over 285 families with information to help with their care enquiry to the team. Please do get in touch to see if we can help you.

We receive many referrals directly from local NHS Scotland and brokerage services and ensure a smooth transition from hospital.  Although this is a very common way to be referred, you can make your own enquiry to us to find out more.

Key Information

We provide care for those paying for their own care and in some cases where there might also be a contribution from the local authority or NHS Scotland. For those paying for their own care we provide an indicative weekly fee and for those fully or partly funded by public funds, we may require an additional top up contribution.  Before you move into our home, we will go through the fees with you and provide you with the Terms and Conditions of Residency and information about the fees for the care you require and the room you select.

It’s important to get professional advice on the best way to fund the cost of care and we suggest that you take advice from a care fees expert to make sure that you have explored all the options available to you.

In order to make life easier we have contacted a national care fees planning specialist, Symponia who are dedicated to the financial issues of later life, in particular the payment of care fees. Through Symponia’s network of carefully selected and qualified financial advisers they offer you and/or your family member empathic, bespoke advice on the best way to fund weekly care fees. This approach ensures that not only are all our residents and their families aware of the legislation and how it works but they are able to explore all the financial options available to them.

It should be noted that brighterkind and Symponia operate completely independently with no commission or financial benefit to brighterkind as a result of your conversation or contract.
