Milton House

Welcome to Milton House, Kirkcaldy


Abbotsford House is a Victorian villa which boasts unique Victorian period features and is situated in a popular residential area in Kirkcaldy close to a local park and high street. We offer excellent accommodation and services for older people with Adults with mental health issues in our specialised Stewart apartments. Both nursing and residential care can be provided for.

The building has refurbished bedrooms with an en-suite. It boasts a themed lounge, drawing room and a large dining room as well as a matured walled garden area with a beautiful Buchannan summer house. The team of care staff receive training in Health and Social Care and are training to Scottish Vocational Level 2 and 3. We also work closely with the local college and offer student
placements.

Along with individual activity programmes, we ensure that ere are always daily activities on in the home where all residents can socialise and participate in. We have involvement with local schools who visit to entertain the residents and the local church who provide a monthly service.

This encourages residents to be part of the community. A news board can be found at the main entrance to the home which keeps visitors up-to-date with all events.

Care Home Manager – Darlene Pettigrew

I have been the manager since September 2014 after taking over from Andrea Burt who has helped me settle in along with the fantastic support of a great team. I have been working in the Care Sector since 2002 starting as a home carer progressing to work with the deaf, blind and disabled adults with epilepsy.

I knew then that I would be in the care sector of work for the rest of my life so I went to night classes and gained my qualifications working all the way up to management qualifications. I did this whilst still working and looking after 3 year old twin boys. Phew that was hard work but so well worth it.

Eventually I then moved on to manage a Sheltered Housing Complex managing a small team of staff and assisting 48 adults to live as independently as possible within the complex. After a small break from work I chose a different line of work and joined the fantastic team at Abbotsford. I started as a carer again working my way up to senior carer and now manager.

The drive I get for work comes from small achievements that I see residents achieve every day.

There is a passion inside me for care work and although I may be manager I am still very much hands on and I daily assist with care work to laundry work.
