Kilmar House is a residential care home which provides care and support for older people. The home can accommodate up to 15 people. We aim to provide all of our residents with a comfortable and relaxed home where everyone is free to be an individual and lead their own personal lives without fear of judgement. Every resident is treated as an individual, with their own wishes and requirements in the home. Being such a small home we can provide a holistic approach to care that puts you at the centre of everything we do. We have very caring and professional staff.Our staff go above and beyond for all of our residents, and most are here on their days off just popping by to see how everyone is!

We aim to form close relationships with all of our residents to ensure they can provide highly individualised care exactly how you want it. The key to our philosophy is everything that we do is truly personalised. We want you to feel as though this is your home and you are able to live as you would within your own environment. Our staff are trained to be flexible and understanding, to ensure that all that is unique about you, is supported and celebrated!
