Each unit has their own en-suite bedrooms, large lounge areas and spacious dining areas.

Staff are well trained to ensure that they can meet the needs of the residents and can ensure that a full active life is led by the residents. The staff have completed various training programmes including, CALM, Dementia Awareness, Learning Disability Awareness and Epilepsy training along with many more to ensure that they meet the resident's needs.

Entertainment and activities are most important in the homes and we have also had involvement with the local schools in Cowdenbeath, including Cowdenbeath Primary, Lumphinnans Primary and Beath High School. We have some lovely art which has been donated by them on display in Argyle House and Chambers Court. Argyle House and Bute House which are our learning disability units also have lovely sensory rooms in the units for the residents to access.

Heather Ross
Assistant Care Manager – Heather Ross

I came to work with Abbotsford in 2008 after completing College where I studied Social Care. Throughout my employment with Abbotsford I have worked in all three of the units on Cowdenbeath site. I came to work at Abbotsford as a Care Assistant in our Main Unit in Cowdenbeath which specialises in elderly and dementia care. I then worked in Bute House our Nursing Care unit for people with learning disabilities before settling in Argyle house our residential unit for people with learning disabilities.

In this time I have been able to develop my skills and knowledge and have achieved my SVQ Level 2 and 3 in Health and Social Care and will soon commence my Level 4 training. I have also completed various other training and courses relevant to the needs of the residents that I support. I was thrilled to become Assistant Care Manager in June 2014. I value the importance of this role and work daily to support The Care Manager, Fellow Colleagues and of course the residents and their relatives. My career with Abbotsford has been extremely rewarding and I am motivated towards supporting all of the staff here at Abbotsford in Cowdenbeath to strive to achieve and deliver the best quality of care possible to the residents that we help to support. I am currently working towards my SVQ level 4 in social care.
