Where you’ll work The care home could not be in a more picture-perfect location in North Ayrshire, 100m from the beautiful beach, with views across the sea. The team spends a lot of time taking the residents to places across the island, with plenty of picnics on the beach. There is a nearby community garden in the grounds of the garrison, where the home has raised beds which the residents take great pride in maintaining. There is also a gym and coffee shops. With two minibuses at Millport, the residents are never short of places to visit and things to do. The loved ones of our residents are very much part of our care home. Most of them have sons and daughters living with us, so we go above and beyond to enable them to enjoy quality family time together. This can mean taking our residents to visit their parents if they too live in a residential care home themselves. We often invite elderly parents to visit Millport with friends from their own care homes, making their visits extra special. Click here for more information about the home.
