About Us :

Bridge Care Residential Limited owns the home, which is a family concern with the co-owner being the Registered Manager of Care.

We are also committed to providing high quality accommodation and facilities.

We are registered to provide residential care for 31 residents, 18 of these places are for people with a dementia. Trained and experienced staff provides 24-hour care. Any nursing care that is required is provided through the district nursing service that visit the home on a regular basis.

Full board is provided and all catering and laundry is done on site. The care provided can include assistance with personal hygiene, bathing, washing, dressing and feeding. A high emphasis is also placed on providing social activities and creating an atmosphere where residents feel comfortable and valued.

Burn Brae Lodge takes people who are referred and funded through the Local Authority and those who fund themselves independently under a private contract. Short-term placements and respite care are sometimes available.


We welcome visits to the home from prospective customers so feel free to phone and make an appointment or just drop in to see what facilities we provide. All we ask is that you try to avoid arriving at mealtimes, as the staff will not be able to give you their full attention.

Our Quality Service:

Focus on Residents

We want everything we do in the home to be driven by the needs, abilities and aspirations of the residents and not by what staff, management or any other group would desire. We recognise how easily this focus can slip and we will remain vigilant to ensure that the facilities, resources, policies, activities and services of the home remain resident - led.

Fitness for Purpose

We are committed to achieving our stated aims and objectives and we welcome the scrutiny of residents and their representatives.



We aim to provide a total range of care, in collaboration with all appropriate agencies, to meet the overall personal and health care needs and preferences of the residents.

Meeting Assessed Needs

The care we provide is based on the thorough assessment of needs and the systematic and continuous planning of care for each resident.

Quality Services

We are aiming for a progressive improvement in the standards of training at all levels of our staff including management.


Our Staff Priorities:

We are aware that the home’s staff will always play a very important role in residents’ welfare. To maximise this contribution, we will do the following.

•  Employ staff in sufficient numbers and with the relevant mix of skills to meet residents’ needs.

•  Provide at all times an appropriate number of staff with qualifications in health and social care.

• Observe recruitment policies and practises that both respect equal opportunities and protect residents’ safety and welfare.

• Offer our staff a range of training that is relevant to their induction, foundation experience and further development.
