People of Edinburgh invited to take first look at new £5.5 million Lauder Lodge care home

December 4th 2017

The team at Lauder Lodge is inviting the local community to celebrate completion of the home with an exclusive first look inside the purpose built facilities.

Lauder Lodge on Wakefield Avenue is opening its doors from Friday 8 December to Sunday 10 December to give local people the opportunity to take a closer look at the brand new care home before it welcomes its first residents from Monday 11 December.

Between 10am-4pm, members of the public can drop in to take a tour around the completed care home, as well as meet the team, including manager Michelle Reid and customer relations manager David Holbrook.

Michelle said: “The team at Lauder Lodge is looking forward to welcoming the first residents to their new home. We are really proud of the environment that has been created, and every last detail here has been considered to create a high-quality, luxury care home. The open days will give visitors the chance to see the care home for themselves and to talk to the team, while also getting insight into what day-to-day life will be like at Lauder Lodge. They can also find out more about the kind of activities that will be on offer.”

The new three-storey care home, which will feature 60 en-suite bedrooms, has been designed to enable its residents to live active and fulfilled lives, while also promoting independence. It will incorporate space for hobby and leisure activities and will include its own cinema, hairdressing salon and café.
