Jim Gillespie House provides residential care for older people including those who may experience hearing or visual impairments, or need assistance with personal care and/or mobility.
We have 30 single rooms; 25 on the ground floor and five on the upper floor, 13 rooms have a toilet and wash hand basin and four rooms have full en-suite shower rooms. Each room comes with a bed, wardrobe, chest of drawers and soft furnishings but you are welcome to bring your own furniture to make it a real home from home.
At Jim Gillespie we offer a dynamic weekly programme of activities for you to enjoy including pet therapy visits, exercise classes and films afternoons. Our Activity Co-ordinator holds beauty sessions, seasonal arts and crafts sessions as well as one to one activity sessions with residents.
We offer a Library service, Holy Communion, and live entertainment from musicians. We always love welcoming visitors from local art groups, farms and reminiscence groups. We have fantastic links with the local primary school, who often come in for intergenerational activities.
