Nursing Homes in Edinburgh

Are you looking for a nursing home in Edinburgh that meets all of your needs?

At TrustedCare, we understand that finding the right nursing home near you can be a daunting task, so we have done the hard work for you, bringing the nursing homes in Edinburgh together in one easy to use online directory.

Each care home in Edinburgh listed with TrustedCare is registered with the Care Inspectorate, which regulates and inspects Scotland's care services. On an Edinburgh nursing home's profile, you will be able to see the information you need in order to make an informed decision about the right nursing home for you, including facilities, specialisms, a gallery and, where available, independent reviews.

Nursing homes in Edinburgh on average cost £1,353 per week but there's a chance that you may be eligible for Continuing Healthcare funding from the NHS if you are being discharged from the hospital and meet the eligibility criteria. Nursing homes can support a broad range of care requirements including dementia, and some accommodate respite care to give full-time carers a well-needed break. The main difference between a care home and a nursing home is that a Registered Nurse will be available 24/7 at a nursing home. To find out what the CQC has assessed the quality of care to be at a nursing home, you can check their latest inspection report which will provide an overall rating of Outstanding, Good, Requires Improvement or Inadequate.

If you are still struggling to find a nursing home in Edinburgh that is right for you or someone close to you, please contact us; our experienced team is on hand to help you.
