Kirkburn Court Care Home in Peterhead

Kirkburn Court is a purpose-built, single storey home providing care and support and 24-hour nursing care for frail older people and to people living with dementia, who are supported in a dedicated Memory Lane Community.

The home is set in its own gardens in Peterhead. The aim of the home is to ‘provide the highest possible standard of care within the home. Residents’ individuality, dignity, privacy and independence are not compromised because they are elderly, confused or disabled. Our aim is to give our residents the best possible quality of life.’

The best way to decide about a care home is to visit it and make up your mind for yourself. We welcome visitors and will be happy to show you around – or to answer any questions we can help with.

Types of care

Kirkburn Court provides person-centred care for those living with dementia in our Memory Lane unit, and nursing care in our Buchan Neuk unit. Residents' individuality, dignity, privacy and independence are not compromised simply because they are elderly, confused or disabled. Our aim is to give those we support the best quality of life possible.

David Garland

General Manager

Hi, my name is David, and I am the General Manager here at Kirkburn Court. 

I have worked in the Care Sector for the past 30 years, in a varied range of positions. I started as a Care Assistant in 1986 and have been involved in management of care home services the past 9 years. I joined Barchester Healthcare, here at Kirkburn Court, in June 2015 and the warm welcome from the residents, their families and staff have helped me settle very well into life here as General Manager. I enjoy ensuring that residents and staff are well supported within the daily life of the home.

Claire Burden

Activities Coordinator

I began my career with Barchester in December 2017. Having worked within the teaching profession for the preceding 8 years, I feel that I bring a range of transferable skills to the activities team.

I strongly believe that the provision of activities is about so much more than just structured, planned events – capturing and celebrating the little moments in daily life, such as enjoying a chat and a cup of tea together, are equally as important.

Activities, no matter how big or small, should be at the heart of every home and that individuality should be celebrated. In addition, I feel that activities should take a person-centred approach, which is why I enjoy spending time with the residents and learning about their preferences and their history.

My own interests include football, politics, crafting and drinking tea, and I enjoy nothing better than engaging with residents on these topics! I aim to bring energy, a friendly smile and a willing ear to the home each day.
