The home’s founder, Isobel Fraser, was a mother of seven and a woman known for her great humanity, imagination and keen awareness of the needs of others.
Following the death of her husband, Frederick, a tailor in Inverness, she continued to pursue her goal of establishing a home to help infirm or needy elderly people.
This was achieved in 1899 in a cottage in Crown Street, Inverness. Isobel died in 1918, aged 65, and, following her death, the home was named The Isobel Fraser Cottage Home.
In 1938 a purpose-built facility was built in Mayfield Road, where the home has remained ever since.
Our philosophy has also been constant, to provide the best, loving care for our residents. We enjoy a consistently good reputation which we continually strive to improve.
We are an independent, charitable organisation run by a manager and deputy manager and overseen by a board of local trustees.
The home has accommodation for 30 residents, living in modern, individual rooms and looked after by a staff of more than 40.
