Welcome to Gilmerton Care Home
Residents are considered part of the family at Gilmerton, a comfortable and welcoming care home in Edinburgh.
We put the health and happiness of people living here at the heart of everything we do, and our dedicated team of nurses and carers actively encourage them to take part in all decisions – contributing to everything from the way their rooms look to the therapies they receive.
All our rooms are en-suite and some have excellent views of our beautiful garden. Residents can personalise their spaces, and can even choose their own colour schemes to make them more homely.
We are close to various amenities and public transport - and with Cameron Toll Shopping Centre just a mile away, a spot of shopping is always an option.
Life at Gilmerton Care Home
Our aim is to help people stay as well as they can for as long as they can, so we understand the importance of being active and entertained.
Our two dedicated activities coordinators make sure residents have a varied and interesting programme of events. These range from quizzes, board games and handicrafts to outings to places they choose. We also celebrate at least one seasonal event each month, such as Burns Night or St Patrick's Day, and we hold an annual summer fete and a fun day.
Throughout the time my husband has been resident in the home I can confidently say his care has been excellent. I have seen vast improvement over the year with his person centred care and involvement in activities on a daily basis.
Since my move into Gilmerton Care Home I am very happy with my care, I feel that I am well looked after from all staff and that they are very approachable and caring.
My husband is well looked after in the care home and any requests made are dealt with promptly. Staff are very caring and my husband is very happy and content.
My mum has been in Gilmerton Care Home for 6 years now, her care is excellent, the staff are wonderful to my mum and my family and I am very happy with the care gets here.

People embark on a career path because it’s something they love, they yearn to develop, grow and blossom in their profession.
Here at Four Seasons Health Care, Care Assistants can up-skill themselves on the organisations Care Home Assistant Practitioner (CHAP) Programme.
On Thursday 20th December 2017, a graduation ceremony was held at Shawcross Social Club in Wigan, celebrating the achievements of 47 newly qualified CHAPs.
Rachael Junge, Managing Director for Four Seasons in the North West of England, said: “Here at Four Seasons Health Care we take great pride in our CHAP Programme, and everyone who undertakes the intense 12 week course. I want to congratulate all of the CHAPs for graduating; your hard work and dedication have paid off. These are the first CHAPs in my area, and I’m absolutely delighted at all of your achievements.
“The Programme is innovative and helps the CHAPs to provide invaluable support to the nurses in the homes.
“All the CHAPs have come through this long journey and I want to thank you for your commitment. I also want to thank the Nurse mentors who have guided and supported the CHAPs every step of the way. Well done everyone!”
The newly qualified CHAPs are now able to provide some general nursing duties such as medication rounds. This benefits the home as it enables the nurse to deal with more complex issues.
