Braid Hills can be found in a delightful leafy suburb of Edinburgh, with stunning views across the Pentland Hills. Purpose-built in the mid-1990s, the home has been extended and refurbished twice since then, and now has 126 rooms across four unique houses. Two houses provide care for frail elderly residents, one specialises in dementia care and the fourth offers care and support to young, physically disabled people.
As everyone is different and has different needs, we make sure that every resident living with us has their own personal care plan that's unique to them and them alone.
Offering variety in the types of activities we provide our residents is important, it helps with physical and mental stimulation and can also give structure to a resident's day, that's why we have a dedicated activities co-ordinator to help plan them. One day we might be hosting some light exercises and music and movement, while on another it could be art classes and concerts.
We have frequent visits from local entertainers and a hairdresser works from the home's salon four days a week, which is ideal for those who fancy a pampering session. For those that like to get stuck into a good book there is a mobile library service that calls to the home on a regular basis.
Please give us a call to discuss how we can help support you or your loved one at our care home in Edinburgh, we look forward to welcoming you to Braid Hills Care Home soon.
