Located in Kincardine on Forth, and easily accessible from Glasgow and Edinburgh, Forth Bay care & retirement home in Fife provides specialist nursing and dementia care for up to 54 elderly people. The home comprises four discrete elements: a 22 bed nursing care unit; a 14 bed unit for people living with dementia; a 9 bed unit for people with a learning disability; and a 9 bed enduring mental illness unit.
Forth Bay enjoys an excellent local reputation and has a friendly, happy atmosphere. Our highly trained nursing team and dedicated activities coordinator work with each individual we care for, along with their family and loved ones, to create tailored care plans with the aim of enabling residents to get the very most from life.
Each of the units within Forth Bay is fully equipped to meet the care needs of our residents. Our dementia unit has been designed to ensure that residents are able to move freely and safely, with bedrooms and communal areas appropriately laid out and clearly signposted to minimise confusion or disorientation.
Forth Bay is ideally equipped to provide nursing support for elderly people living with different types of dementia, including Alzheimer’s disease, vascular dementia and Korsacoff’s syndrome. However, staff never lose sight of the fact that, first and foremost, Forth Bay is home to our residents.
The home offers a full range of nursing and dementia care support, including trial stays, respite breaks and convalescent care as well as long term care. Residents are encouraged to bring important personal possessions to personalise their rooms. Forth Bay operates an open visiting policy, where residents and loved ones may visit at convenient times. In common with all of our homes, Forth Bay’s manager has a qualified nursing background. The home is fully registered with the Scottish Commission for the Regulation of Care and has ISO9001/2000 and Hospitality Assured accreditation.

Life in a Caring Home is viewed as a continuum of life – an opportunity to gain new experiences and learn new things – whilst maintaining your existing hobbies and interests.
At every Caring Home, there is a dedicated activities co-ordinator who is on hand to support residents in learning new hobbies and maintaining existing ones.
An activities programme is developed by the activities co-ordinators who work in conjunction with the clinical team in reviewing each individuals occupational interests and tailoring an activities programme that addresses them.
