On becoming part of the Kingdom Homes Ltd group of nursing and residential care homes, Fernlea House Residential Care Home in Cardenden was extensively refurbished to ensure it met the high standards demanded by Kingdom Homes.
Fernlea House, Cardenden
Originally a house built in the early 1900's, Fernlea has seen two major extensions to the original building since being converted to a care home, the first in 2001 and the second in 2004 when it was refurbished and redecorated throughout.
Fernlea House has 34 large single rooms and two large double rooms for couples, all of which have en-suite toilet and shower facilities. During a further recent major refurbishment programme the care home was fitted with swing-free door closers which are linked to the fire detection system, and a sprinkler system was installed to all areas. These upgrades underline the priority that Kingdom Homes Ltd place on the safety of each and every resident.
All Fernlea's public rooms, including the lounges and dining areas, are on the ground floor, with access to the mature garden areas via patio doors where residents can take a stroll or simply sit and enjoy the fresh air and flowers. Bedrooms on the upper floor are accessed by a lift.
Although sitting at the heart of Cardenden, Fernlea House has immediate access to country park walks and the principally rural setting does not distance it from the many attractions of the surrounding Fife towns.
With regular outings to the shops, shows and other places of interest on the company's minibus, there is always plenty to do. Residents may also take part in a very busy schedule of events from exercise classes to reminiscence sessions and games within the home.
Kingdom Homes also run a number of residents clubs including a car club, wildlife club, photography club and a creative writing group to name but a few. Residents from all eight care homes in the group may attend these clubs should they choose to do so.
