Life at Struan Lodge Care Home

Providing high-quality care and support is at the heart of everything we do at Struan Lodge. 

Our residential care home boasts a number of on-site facilities such as en-suite bedrooms, gardens, hairdressing, and more, available to all of our residents at no extra cost. We take pride in offering our residents both their own private spaces as well as areas where they can be sociable and enjoy themselves with other residents. 

It is also important to us that we ensure our residents can continue living their lives the way they want to as well as providing them with opportunities to live a full and varied lifestyle. We are proud to offer our residents a daily activities programme, arts and crafts sessions, aromatherapy and religious services. We want no two days to be the same for our residents and go to great lengths to satisfy their needs and interests.

Residential Care

Residential Care is most suitable to those who may struggle to maintain their household or who may require additional support with day-to-day activities and self-care. It is also ideal for those who may be seeking companionship or would benefit from living with others.

Residents at Struan Lodge can live in a beautiful, furnished home and receive as little or as much support as they need, whilst taking advantage of having homecooked meals and all domestic duties taken care of. Our experienced team is on hand to care and support our residents 24/7.

Dementia Care 

We are proud to be able to offer those living with dementia a safe, caring, and supportive environment, where Dementia Care is available 24/7 by a knowledgable and experienced team of staff. 

Our staff regularly receive comprehensive training in understanding and managing all aspects of Dementia Care and to ensure they are up to date with the latest methods. As well as around-the-clock care, we like to support our resident’s overall wellbeing by offering a variety of dementia-friendly activities and therapies.

Nursing Care

Nursing Care is offered to those who require around-the-clock care from a team of qualified Nurses. As well as providing care to those who are elderly, have physical disabilities, and have high dependency needs, we also provide specialist care to people with conditions such as Huntingtons’ Disease, Motor Neurones Disease, and Multiple Sclerosis. 

Prior to joining our home, we offer all prospective residents and their loved ones the opportunity to come in for an informal chat where we can offer our guidance and assess whether we can meet your needs. Once a resident at Struan Lodge, we will create a personalised care plan that is regularly monitored to best reflect your individual needs.

Respite Care

At our Nursing Home in Edinburgh, we also offer Respite Care which is a short-term care solution for those who need a temporary break from caregiving or as a period of rehabilitation for those who have recently suffered from an illness, injury, or an operation in hospital. 

We understand that both caregivers and those who require care can sometimes feel burnt out. A period of respite in our care home ensures that care is offered 24/7 and residents can also benefit from all the facilities and social opportunities that our other residents receive. Whether it’s for a couple of days or a few weeks, at Struan Lodge we are more than happy to help.

Things To Do in Edinburgh 

Edinburgh care homes are extremely fortunate to be situated in Scotland’s beautiful capital city. At Struan Lodge, we go to great lengths to make sure that all of our residents make the most of life in and around our home. Situated on a residential street, we are conveniently located near neighbourhoods such as Westfield and Slateford, which gives residents easy access to amenities such as public transport, supermarkets, restaurants, and banks. All of this and more can also be explored in the heart of Edinburgh which is less than a 20-minutes drive away from our home.

We regularly take our residents on excursions into the capital and encourage relatives to make use of the excellent transport links we have available to us and go on trips too. Our residents and families can enjoy a historical afternoon at Edinburgh Castle, learning about the soldiers, Kings, and Queens that stood before them. There is also plenty of things to do with kids, such as a visit to Camera Obscura & World of Illusions where there are 100+ interactive exhibits for all ages. You will never be short of places to eat and drink in Edinburgh, as it is home to an eclectic mix of bars and eateries.

Lovers of animals and wildlife don’t have far to go as Struan Lodge is situated just a 7-minute walk from RZSS Edinbugh Zoo. Famous for housing Penguins and Giant Pandas, the zoo makes for a perfect day out no matter what your age or interests. Nature lovers can also go to Saughton Park & Gardens or Corstorphine Hill Viewpoint, both ideal for walks, picnics, flora, and fauna, and just getting out in the fresh air. Those who enjoy both playing and spectating sports also do not have far to go as both Edinburgh Rugby Stadium and Carrick Knowe Golf Course are just a short distance away.
