Providing unique and specialist care for adults with extremely complex needs, the excellent reputation of our care home is well-known across Scotland.

The team at Millport specialises in caring for adults with varied needs, including learning disabilities, mental health needs, autism spectrum disorder, cerebral palsy and downs syndrome. The care is so specialist that people come from far and wide.

Millport’s team includes highly trained learning disabilities nurses and mental health nurses. Most of the staff have worked at the home for several years and are like an extended family for the residents. They also know everything about the residents, enabling them to provide care that is truly bespoke to their exceptionally varied needs. Staff provide round-the-clock nursing care, so if residents’ needs change over time, we are here to make sure our care evolves to meet those needs.

We do everything we possibly can to support the residents to both maintain and enhance their independence. We help one of our residents to work part-time in a local charity shop. With the team’s help, several other residents are able to make the most of adult education courses offered at colleges in Greenock and Kilwinning. Some recently completely a Come Dine with Me-style networking course which they absolutely loved. Two of the former residents even have their own tenancies and work part-time in the care home.

Our breath-taking location

The care home could not be in a more picture-perfect location in North Ayrshire, 100m from the beautiful beach, with views across the sea. The team spends a lot of time taking the residents to places across the island, with plenty of picnics on the beach. There is a nearby community garden in the grounds of the garrison, where the home has raised beds which the residents take great pride in maintaining. There is also a gym and coffee shops. With two minibuses at Millport, the residents are never short of places to visit and things to do.

A short ferry ride away there is a cinema in Largs, which some of the residents like to visit, as well as plenty of music groups and clubs on the mainland.

The loved ones of our residents are very much part of our care home. Most of them have sons and daughters living with us, so we go above and beyond to enable them to enjoy quality family time together. This can mean taking our residents to visit their parents if they too live in a residential care home themselves. We often invite elderly parents to visit Millport with friends from their own care homes, making their visits extra special.

The team also organises mini holiday breaks for some of our residents, taking small groups to places like Filey, Blackpool and north Scotland.
