Leuchie House is an independent charity providing respite breaks with 24 hour nursing care, to enhance the lives of people and their families living with long term conditions.
Leuchie provides respite breaks with 24 hour nursing care for people and their families affected by long-term physical conditions such as Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson’s Disease, Motor Neurone Disease, Huntington’, stroke, spinal injury and other long-term conditions.
Very few other services are available in the UK will look after such complex care needs in a non-clinical setting and individuals requiring this level of care would have to go to hospital or into a care of the elderly environment, alternatives that lack the stimulating, enjoyable, activity based setting of Leuchie.
Leuchie provides high quality respite for individuals with complex care physical conditions whilst their carers or loved ones also take a break either at Leuchie or elsewhere in the knowledge that a dedicated, professional team is on hand. Leuchie is the only respite home of its kind in Scotland to offer guests from all over the UK with long term conditions a tailor-made respite care and holiday package. Leuchie House provides guests with a variety of services including twenty four hour specialist nursing care, physiotherapy sessions, complementary therapies, home cooking, outings, entertainment and activities – all in the unique setting of an original 18th century mansion house and parkland.
Leuchie House aims to:

- Provision and promotion of respite care or short breaks for individuals with complex care physical and neurological conditions
