Here at Cairdean House, in Colinton, south west Edinburgh, we offer the highest standards of nursing, residential and respite care for older people, including those who are living with Alzheimer's and other forms of dementia.

Our 90-bedroom purpose-built care home opened in early 2013 and has already established a strong reputation for its expertise and ground-breaking approach.

Cairdean House is a care home with a difference. It has been innovatively designed by internationally renowned architect, Richard Pollock and sits in the beautiful village of Colinton in Edinburgh. Richard and his team created the design with every thought for the needs of older people, particularly those living with dementia, and the smallest of details are considered in their approach. Find out more about Cairdean House's specialist design.

Our care home boasts some beautiful facilities that give it an air, more of a five star hotel than a care home. Each of the en-suite bedrooms is beautifully furnished and has a subtly different colour scheme, so there's something to suit every new resident. Each room also has a flat-screen television, adjustable profile bed and a 24-hour nurse call system, plus phone and internet connection points.

Why not give us a call to find out how we could provide care and support to yourself or a loved one at our care home in Edinburgh."

Manager's quote

Life in our care home is all about helping people to enjoy more independent and fulfilling lives. We want residents and their families to look upon our home as their own. We set high standards, clearly evident in the care we provide, making sure all residents get the most out of every day by having fun, staying safe, and keeping as healthy and active as possible.
