Cairdean House in Colinton, Edinburgh, provides excellent care for older people in stunning surroundings.
We are here to support you and your loved one through your journey into care and can offer virtual show-rounds with a dedicated member of the team. In some instances we may be able to offer visits via our garden. If you’re considering care for yourself or a loved one, call us to find out why we’re trusted to care.
Our skilled and compassionate team provides nursing, residential and respite care for up to 90 older people, including those living with dementia. Cairdean House was designed to the latest dementia standards by internationally renowned architect, Richard Pollock, and there’s a homely, welcoming atmosphere, with inviting spaces for relaxation.
A care home designed for quality of life
Our Colinton care home has its own coffee shop, hair salon and cinema, and we’re always exploring new ways to make the home more luxurious for residents. We recently refreshed the outdoor terraces and the décor in the coffee shop, and created a more homely atmosphere in our reception area, with comfortable seating, a new television and a fireplace.
The home is arranged into nine small suites, each with a shared lounge, dining area and new kitchenette. All shared spaces are frequently cleaned and there are hand gel and hand wash stations available throughout the home. We support residents to maintain their independence as much as possible, and, if they wish, they’re welcome to make their own drinks and snacks in the kitchenettes.
Enjoying an active and fulfilling lifestyle
Residents at Cairdean House are encouraged to mix in small socially distanced groups, to relax how they wish or to engage in the lifestyle programme. Our skilled and experienced team will get to know your loved one before creating care and lifestyle plans that are tailored to their unique needs and interests. We will support your loved one to keep active, helping with routine tasks around the home or taking part in socially-distanced group and one-to-one activities that we organise.
