The much-anticipated Cramond Residence, Edinburgh’s finest care home, has officially opened its doors and welcomed its first residents. Located to the north-west of Edinburgh, in the tranquil village of Cramond, the Residence provides the highest quality, person-centred nursing care for older people in the capital.
It has been designed to promote small community living and comprises of nine distinct houses, each with eight or nine generous en suite bedrooms, as well as a selection of shared lounges, dining areas and activity spaces, creating a real home-from-home feel.
And outside, beautiful, landscaped gardens will provide a peaceful place to walk, sit, and relax. Exclusive, deluxe rooms with doors opening out onto private patios are also available.
The interior of Cramond Residence reflects well-known areas across Edinburgh through the mix of materials, colour, art and objects used in the design. Creating and cherishing memories is also an important part of the care provided and picking up on historical themes of the city helps to create a sense of nostalgia.
Sports enthusiasts will be at home in Ravelston House, where golfing hats displayed on hat stands and check curtains pay homage to the classic attire worn at Ravelston Golf Club. Those who like the great outdoors will love the quirky, pheasant wallpaper in Braid Hills House, reflecting the wildlife found in the area and admirers of the arts will appreciate the mixed gold frames and navy wall colour of Belford House – a nod to the National Gallery of Modern Art.
Further tributes to the capital can be found throughout, with bread tin accessories reflecting the old bakers and millers of Dean Village and even a tribute to Greyfriars Bobby in the colour palette of Greyfriars House.
The team at Cramond Residence prides itself on a positive care approach which promotes independence and ensures care plans are suited to individual needs. They have an exclusive partnership with Balanced – Edinburgh’s premier physiotherapy provider – which specialises in functional rehabilitation and fall prevention to help older people become more independent.
Good quality food and nutrition are also a key focus as they are essential for wellbeing and happiness. Exceptionally qualified chefs lead a skilled catering team to create nutritious food plans tailored to individual tastes, beliefs or dietary requirements.
Life at Cramond Residence is designed to offer something to suit everyone and there are a wide range of activities on offer. From art classes to being pampered in the salon, or watching a film in the private cinema, it is a truly special place to live. Community living is important, so a variety of local day trips are also organised regularly and friends and family are always welcome and invited to join special events throughout the week.
It is managed exclusively by Walker Healthcare, which has over 20 years’ experience leading successful healthcare partnerships and operational management of well-respected care homes.
