Newark Care Home offers residential care, nursing, and dementia care plus, respite and convalescent care. The care home has particular expertise in assisting residents with specific medical needs with a team of highly skilled registered nurses.
Newark Care Home is set in the suburbs of Port Glasgow and is easily reached from the surrounding areas of Greenock, Bishopton, Erksine, Paisley and the Western suburbs of Glasgow.
Newark Care is a 61-bedded care home, all with ensuite. The home is split into four units and nowhere appears too large. The care home is fortunate to have a large and gorgeous garden. Newark is a huge part of the local community. Residents visit other homes in the area and go on local excursions.
The home was purpose-built and designed to meet the needs of older people, with large comfortable lounge areas to relax in and comfortably socialise with others.
All surroundings are of high quality and there are outdoor areas and gardens to take in the fresh air and enjoy the seasons.
Our activities coordinator organises a weekly schedule of activities and entertainment to keep life fun and engaging for our residents. Residents can explore the local community and beyond through trips and excursions in our minibus.
Our chef prepares a delicious menu of three meals a day plus snacks. Personal preferences and dietary requirements are fully catered for so that all residents look forward to mealtimes.

Eileen has 25 years’ experience in care home management involving group portfolios. “What matters the most to me and my team is achieving positive outcomes and quality of life for those in our care.”
“I find the staff very approachable to talk to about things. I know my mother is safe and protected by staff in the care home. The staff know my mother’s likes and dislikes and respect these. The staff treat my mother with the utmost dignity and respect. The staff keep me updated with all aspects of Mum’s ongoing care.”
As a result of advancing Alzheimer’s disease, my father’s care needs could no longer be met at home. He has always hoped not to go to a care home. As a family, this was a difficult decision to make. Much to our relief, he feels ‘at home’ in Newark. As a nurse myself, I am in no doubt this is due to the support we have all been given by the management and staff to support our transition. The level of care and compassion we have experienced have been tangible. Excellent!
Newark Care cared for my mum for the last few months of her life. The staff were forever helpful and considerate and during the pandemic adhering to rules but creating a home family environment and became family to my mum when we were not able to physically get in there to see her. My mum, being a local lady, we feel could converse with the cheery staff and made her time there most comfortable. The staff there must be under extreme pressure in these times, and I will be forever grateful for their kindness to my mum and to us the family on the outside.
As my mum's dementia gets worse, she is now significantly more reliant on all the staff in the facility, but I find that she is still treated with the dignity, compassion and kindness that I would always wish for her. All staff, including management and carers engage with her, making her days so comfortable and happy as they can. Staff are interactive and supportive of my mum and keep myself informed of any issues that may arise. I am grateful for their care, help and attention to my mum's well being.
