Welcome to Kirklands Care Home – our purpose-built care home nestled in the heart of the beautiful Lake District within the market town of Cockermouth. Our bright, modern facility has everything needed to provide the highest levels of care to residents, while maintaining a warm, comfortable and homely atmosphere that puts you at ease the moment that you arrive.
You’ll feel at home as soon as you step through the door at Kirklands care home. This purpose-built residential home combines comfort and freedom without compromising on resident safety. Bedrooms are fully furnished on arrival, but all residents are encouraged to choose colours and décor to suit their own tastes and style to help them feel comfortable in their new home.
"It is difficult finding the right care spot to look after your loved one when she has to have the level of attention that you can no longer give personally, but I have no hesitation in recommending that Kirklands does just that."

To make it as safe as possible to move around, we’ve maximised the floor space in resident bedrooms and in the lounges and seating areas where they can socialise with residents, carers and their visitors. They can also access our secure garden when the weather permits.
Keeping body and mind busy is crucial for resident wellness and we’re particularly proud of the wide range of activities and social environments that we create at Kirklands care home. Although resident choice is a strong part of our ethos, we encourage them to engage in our activities and with one another as much as possible to help enrich their day-to-day lives. We take time to get to know what interests our residents and ask them and their families which activities we can use to enhance their quality of life.
Some of our most popular activities and events include coffee afternoons, tea parties, bingo nights, music therapy and trips out to the local town. We’ve got strong links with the local community too.
Our compassionate and experienced staff are completely dedicated to the care of our residents. We work closely with residents and their families to create highly-personalised plans that ensure that both the physical and emotional needs of the resident are not only met, but exceeded. Their safety, dignity and happiness are our priority as we support them to live a healthy, active and fulfilling life with us at Kirklands care home.
Our residents benefit from 24/7 care and support at the highest standards of professional service.
We welcome you to get in touch with any questions you have, or to make an appointment to come and see us for yourselves.
