A Warm Welcome to Gilmerton Care Home in Edinburgh

You’ll find Gilmerton Care Home has a welcoming and comfortable atmosphere, situated in Edinburgh. We are a short drive away from the city centre and nearby to public transport, making us easily accessible for visitors to pop-in for a chat.

Gilmerton Care Home in Edinburgh is only a mile away from Cameron Toll shopping centre, which makes for great days out for residents and their loved ones.

In our recent inspection, we were rated ‘GOOD’ in all areas and the Inspector said that it was impossible to fit all the positive comments from relatives into the report, but here’s a taster of some of the relative comments about our service:

  • “We feel blessed that we got Gilmerton care home. We visited 5 or 6 and they were by far the best.”
  • “The cleanliness is second to none, the home is amazing. I can’t give you a bad complaint.” 
  • “It’s been brilliant, couldn’t ask for a better home. I can go to bed at night and sleep, don’t need to worry that she’s alright.”

We believe just because someone moves into a care home, that doesn’t mean they should stop doing the things they love. That’s why we provide an ever-changing activities programme inspired by residents’ interests and needs. From regular trips out and visits from entertainers to baking and arts & crafts sessions, we offer a wide range activities to help residents live life to the full. Here’s a sample of what our current residents enjoy:

  • Movement to music
  • Games such as giant dominoes, skittles, large snakes and ladders, floor darts and more
  • We love an afternoon tea out at the Woollen Mill and also a visit to the Robins Nest Pub

Key Information

We provide care for those who are publicly funded as well as those paying for their own care.

It’s important to get professional advice on the best way to fund the cost of care and we suggest that you take advice from a care fees expert to make sure that you have explored all the options available to you.

In order to make life easier we have contacted a national care fees planning specialist, Symponia who are dedicated to the financial issues of later life, in particular the payment of care fees. Through Symponia’s network of carefully selected and qualified financial advisers they offer you and/or your family member empathic, bespoke advice on the best way to fund weekly care fees. This approach ensures that not only are all our residents and their families aware of the legislation and how it works but they are able to explore all the financial options available to them.

It should be noted that Four Seasons Health Care and Symponia operate completely independently with no commission or financial benefit to Four Seasons Health Care as a result of your conversation or contract.
