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.

Colleagues from Laurels Lodge Care Home in Woodside, Havencourt Care Home in Stonehaven and Cumbrae Lodge Care Home in Irvine all came together to do a skydive, raising money for residents in their care and Alzheimer's Scotland.

Tracey Rhodes, Resident Experience Facilitator for Scotland, said: "Everyone was really excited for the jump. One of them hadn't even been in a plane, and they completed it, which was a huge accomplishment. They managed to raise £4,000 which is fantastic. Well done everyone."

Congratulations everyone! We’re all proud of you.

Residents from Lammermuir House Care Home in Dunbar went on a little trip to the seaside last week making the most of the spring sunshine.

Jessica Millburn, Home Manager, said: “The residents enjoyed their trip out to the beach in North Berwick. While some enjoyed a walk and a paddle, a couple of the residents tried out the ‘beach wheelchairs’ which proved to be a huge hit. The residents raced each other up the beach enjoying the sea air in their hair. It’s great that we’re able to provide a special experience like this to our residents.”

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.”

Information about Four Seasons Care Awards 2016 is available on the awards section of our website.
