Care home admissions during the Covid-19 pandemic

Safe admissions into our care homes includes the option for new residents to self-isolate in the comfort of their own home for 11 days, before joining us in the care home where they will be tested for Covid-19 and supported to self-isolate for 3 more days until the result of the test is known.


Sitting alongside the stunning promenade in Prestwick, with glorious coastal views across to the Isle of Arran, Queens Care Home is situated in a truly beautiful location.

Our caring staff provide a variety of care and support to our residents, including residential care, nursing care, dementia care, and palliative care.

The front of the care home stretches along the promenade, with a large decking and paved garden where our residents can enjoy the scenery and fresh sea air. From here, there are views of Ailsa Craig, also known as Paddy’s Milestone, an uninhibited island formed from a volcanic plug which was famously used to quarry the granite used to make curling stones.

The bedrooms at the front of Queens boast wonderful sea views across the South Ayrshire coastline, as does our Arran Lounge. This and our other lounge, bathrooms and communal areas of the home are looking beautiful, bright and airy following a very recent refurbishment.

Dementia-friendly

We make the most of the location of Queens. Every week we join Dementia Friendly Prestwick, a group dedicated to supporting people living with or affected by dementia. Together, we stroll along the promenade (and obviously support our less mobile residents in wheelchairs) into the town, where they enjoy a drink with people from the local community.

Trips down memory lane

Queens also partners with Cycling Without Age Prestwick, where our residents are taken on nostalgic rickshaw rides around the town. These are a real trip down memory lane for our residents, many of whom have lived in the area all their lives. For our residents who live with dementia, the rides often help them recall happy memories of where they grew up and places they loved to visit before moving into residential care.

Through our dedicated activities team, we have also just started to do Lingo Flamingo, where our residents take part in sensory linguistic classes here at Queens. Currently, they are learning Spanish. We will be expanding on this by holding themed days to savour the cuisine, music and culture of these countries.

Therapet is an organisation where volunteers frequently bring their well-behaved dogs into Queens for a fuss. The dogs are wonderful for our residents, especially those who love animals or owned dogs and miss that canine contact. We also have two hand-reared rabbits, Sonny and Cher – which are adored by our residents and love to come inside the home for a cuddle.

A beauty therapist in Prestwick also frequently visits Queens for residents who like a little pampering, offering hand massages, nail painting and manicures, as well as more tailored facial trimming for our gentlemen.
