Welcome to St Margarets Care Home

St Margarets, in the heart of Edinburgh, is a beautiful Victorian property which has been converted, extended and refurbished to create a truly unique care home.

Previously St Margaret's Independent Girls' School (from 1890 to 1990), our lovely home is in the prestigious area of Newington, close to the University of Edinburgh.

Outside, we have car parking, and furnished roof terraces offering great views over the city towards Arthur's Seat and the Salisbury Crags.

Sponsored-Shift-at-Ashcroft

24 Apr 2015

A relative whose husband is a resident at Ashcroft Care Home in Chesterfield, recently worked a 10 hour shift in the home. Judith Smith, who is in her 70s, donated the £140 she made during her sponsored shift at Ashcroft and donated it to the Resident’s Social Fund. Judith worked really hard, not just in her shift but also by looking after her husband who lives with dementia.

Home Manager, Yana Whitehouse said, “Judith is great and we had a lot of fun when she was on shift. She displayed so much kindness and caring to all of our residents and I believe she should be recognised for this.”

Carol was nominated by Mrs Nancy Prior for consistently supporting residents to participate in activities to enrich their daily lives. Lorraine was also nominated by Mrs Nancy Prior for always making time to talk to the residents and always being caring and funny.

Tracie White, Regional Manager, commented: “Our employees are our most valuable resource and the reason we are able to deliver the best possible care to meet residents’ needs. It is a delight to reward Carol and Lorraine this way, and show appreciation for their exceptional hard work and dedication that helps to set Four Seasons Health Care apart.”

Riverside-Fundraising

20 Apr 2015

Staff and supporters at Riverside View Care Home in Darlington donned their walking boots to climb an iconic North Yorkshire hill to raise funds for their residents.

The dedicated team were joined by friends and family of the home’s residents to climb Roseberry Topping, a landmark 330m high hill near Great Ayton.

Despite the poor weather, the team managed to reach the summit and their efforts raised money to spend on activities and trips for Riverside View residents.

The walk was one of a variety of fundraising events organised by staff who continually raise money for the residents fund.

Home manager, Claire Westmorland said, “We battled through the wind and rain and reached the top of Roseberry Topping. Staff and relatives took part and we raised about £400 for the residents fund which was a great success.”
