Mina Lodge

Welcome to Mina Lodge, Kinglassie


We are one of the smallest homes in the group and are nestled in the heart of what was, a local mining community and we have been accepted and supported by the various groups, organisations and residents' within the village.

As a team, we have worked hard to maintain or improve our grades, take pride in our home and follow regulations to ensure everyone is safe, healthy and happy. We have a great skill, our trained staff are qualified in general/adult, learning difficulties and psychiatric nursing and our carers have been trained in dementia awareness, SVQ levels 2 and 3. We also have specialised areas for carers including, continence management and oral health to name but a few.

We are also keen to share our knowledge with others so have students on placement from Fife Nursing College, Adam Smith and LDTC and are proud that the feedback from students' has been excellent

Care Home Manager – Darlene Pettigrew

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.
