Welcome to Lammermuir House Care Home
You'll find Lammermuir House in the historic town of Dunbar, East Lothian.
Here, our experienced team of registered nurses and well trained care staff provides person-centred care, 24 hours a day. We have excellent working relationships with local GPs, pharmacists, chiropodists and more.
Ours is a bright, spacious purpose-built home, opened by the Queen in 1986. We're surrounded by mature, accessible gardens which allow residents to enjoy the sea air and potter among the raised beds. A raised walkway enables beautiful views.
We have four floors, meaning our sitting rooms, dining rooms and bedrooms also look out over the sea. All our en-suite bedrooms are singles, linked to nurse-call and fire-detection systems, and decorated and personalised as their residents choose.

As delayed transfers of care remain at record highs, how can we reduce unnecessary hospital stays for older people? That was the key question at an HSJ event held in association with Four Seasons Health Care.
The roundtable heard that the healthcare system often finds reasons not to deal with care home residents and looked at the success of an innovative collaboration between the NHS and care homes in Belfast.
With a collaborative approach between care homes and the NHS, older people are able to leave hospital and receive expert care, whilst assessing whether their long term future would be in their current home or a local care home. “The idea is that it would provide short term rehabilitation in conjunction with the two trusts in that area. The joint partnerships with the trusts I’ve worked with have just been amazing, and that’s what makes it work”, explained Janice Brown, Four Seasons’ regional manager for the Belfast and Newtownabbey area.
In addition to the improvements from a collaborative solution, South Eastern Health and Social Care Trust reported that the joint partnership approach of providing a bed in a care home reduced their yearly cost by more than half.

We’ll be launching the 2017 Four Seasons Care Awards in the summer. In the meantime, we thought it would be nice to catch up with some of the winners of last year’s awards, to see what it’s been like since they’ve gone back to the floor.
This week we’ll be focusing on Sheena Walker, a member of the Learning and Development Team in Scotland who won the Central Support Team Member accolade.
Sheena is definitely a force to be reckoned with in Scotland, and her passion for helping others develop in their health care career is something to be admired. That’s why when she won the Central Support Team Member of the Year award she was surprised and over whelmed.
“It was a little bit intimidating receiving so much recognition,” explains Sheena. “It is nice to be recognised, but for me it’s not a job. I am very passionate about nursing. I was a nurse myself for a long time. I want to nurture and grow this passion in others who embark on their own nursing journey.”
Since winning the award Sheena has been continuing to support and develop Four Seasons colleagues in Scotland as they complete their Scottish Vocational Qualifications (SVQ).
Sheena is a very humble lady. John Kirk, Managing Director for Scotland, Wales and the Isle of Man had this to say about her. “Sheena is a fantastic lady, and a great asset for us to have up here in Scotland. The support she provides her colleagues to help them progress through qualifications is second to none. I’m glad she’s been recognised in this way.”

Towards the end of last year, the 42 homes in Scotland, Wales and the Isle of Man regions took part in a competition to create their own twiddle mitts.
John Kirk, Managing Director for the Region, said: “Twiddle Mitts provide much needed relief for people living with dementia, as they are able to play with the various beads and other textures on there.
“With that in mind, I set the homes on my patch a challenge. I wanted to see who could design the best twiddle mitt.
“The response I got was fantastic. The mitts weren't only made by members of the care teams, but by the residents and their families. I want to thank everyone who took the time to make a mitt. These will now be winging their way back to the homes for the residents to enjoy.”
The top three twiddle mitts were chosen from the following homes:
