Lochduhar Care Home in Dumfries

Lochduhar Care Home provides first-class 24-hour nursing care for elderly people, including expert care for those living with dementia in our Memory Lane Community. Alongside this, we offer services for people with physical disabilities and mental health issues, in a safe and secure setting.

Our mission statement notes that, ‘by putting quality first in everything we do for residents, relatives and staff, we aspire to be the most respected and successful provider’. In addition, our skilled and experienced team are dedicated to fostering an atmosphere of care and support, which enables and encourages residents to live as full, interesting and independent a lifestyle as possible.

Lochduhar is ideally situated on the outskirts of Dumfries. It is in close proximity to local amenities, with a regular bus service to and from the town centre, and is also only a short drive to the Solway Coast.

We are proud of the care we offer and would be delighted to show you around our home.

Types of care

The care we provide is delivered in a way that promotes independence for those who live in our home. Where possible, it is important that residents are encouraged to perform daily tasks independently or with minor support. Our services are devised with individualised treatment in mind for each person, so getting to know everyone and understanding their needs is imperative to delivering bespoke, person-centred care.
