Benefitting from a central, yet tranquil, location in the heart of the seaside village of Leven, Scoonie House is a charming Victorian home sympathetically converted to provide residential care for up to 36 elderly ladies and gentlemen.
Scoonie House care & retirement home in Fife really enjoys the best of both worlds – it is close to all the shops and amenities of Leven village centre, yet lies within a haven of mature trees and parkland. The quality of the home’s location is echoed when one steps inside. Residents’ bedrooms and communal areas are decorated and furnished to the highest standards. Our dedicated staff team work closely with residents, their families and loved ones, to ensure that each person’s care needs are understood and met. Just as importantly, our Activities Coordinator takes the time to learn about each person’s life history, working with that individual to ensure they are able to live as active a life as they wish.
The home offers a full range of residential 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. Scoonie House operates an open visiting policy, where residents and loved ones may visit at convenient times. In common with all of our homes, Scoonie House’s manager has a qualified nursing background. The home is fully registered with the Scottish Commission for the Regulation of Care and has ISO 9001/2000 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.
