Greencross Nursing Home & Lodge is a listed building close to Cambusland town centre.
Originally an 1888 primary school, the building has been restored and converted, creating a modern care facility but maintaining the charm of the original school.
The home also has a purpose built unit completed in 2004 which has en-suite single rooms providing specialist care for Adults with Physical and/or Mental Complex Healthcare Needs.
There are single rooms containing a wash-hand basin, television and telephone point. Toilet and bathing facilities are close to all rooms and en-suite facilities are also available. The bedrooms are homely and residents are encouraged to bring in their personal items.
Greencross has an activities co-ordinator who organises events and helps residents find new interests. There is also a minibus for days out.

Social Community and living a meaningful lifestyle
Our residents are encouraged to be independent and are free to organise their own social events. We have 3 dedicated social activity co-ordinators to support our residents and to discover any new interests of our residents. A variety of events are organised by staff and everyone is encouraged to join in.
The list is exhaustive:
- arts and crafts
- birthday parties
- movie nights
- work shops: learning computer skills, making jewellery, calendars, cards and ornaments
There is a music room and games room with pool in the annexe.
Outdoor activities during the summer months include several outings to such local venues
as Rutherglen Town Hall, boat trips, barbecues, beach parties, fruit picking and weekly outings to local parks.
Our residents are encouraged to take part in regular exercise and a physiotherapist visits twice weekly to the home, facilitating group and personalised exercise programmes tailored to individual needs.
Residents and their families were asked for suggestions on what to do with the feature wall. Out of all the suggestions made, a trip down Memory Lane was the most popular. The wall now displays pictures of the residents and their favourite things and memories. You are more than welcome to pop up and have a look.
