Strathburn Lodge

Welcome to Strathburn Lodge, Glenrothes


Strathburn Lodge is a home with four small units of 10. The home was purpose built for people with Dementia which was designed in Australia. It has been open for twenty years with staff who have remained working in the home since its opening in the summer of 1993. All staff have completed understanding Dementia training.

Strathburn Lodge have the first all-male unit environment within the Fife area and has been a great success with meeting people from Edinburgh, Tayside and Glasgow. Younger People having been diagnosed with Dementia were looking for placement, so one of the units was allocated to cater for under 65's only. All the rooms are different due to personal taste and choice.

Residents are involved in many decisions related to the home. Presently we have 4 chickens, a small allotment with herbs and vegetables , a greenhouse with flowers which beautiful baskets are made with and displayed at the entrance. We also sell the baskets with the flower arrangements and buy further stock for next year.

Residents requiring a wheelchair can access a lower step bus from the entrance of the home for travelling to town or to the railway station.

All residents are respected as individuals within the home. Residents are actively involved in deciding any improvements in the home. For example, the MGM café in the foyer and the pamper room.

Jackie Imrie
Care Home Manager – Jackie Imrie

My nursing career spans over 30 years, beginning in my local Stratheden hospital by Cupar followed by moving down south to enhance my knowledge and experience in psychiatry.

On my return to Scotland I joined Abbotsford when it opened the Glenrothes home in 1993, holding various positions before taking the post of care manager at Strathburn Lodge. Achieving my manager's award has allowed me to further build on my skills.

I am also proud to successfully manage the first all-male unit environment in Fife. My other goals are to remain healthy, continue learning new skills and by ensuring I balance my work and home life.
