Struan Lodge Care Home & You

At Struan Lodge, giving excellent care and support is at the core of everything we do. As a purpose-built care home, we understand the importance of friendly care delivered by an experienced team of professionals. All of our residents have free access to a variety of on-site amenities at our residential care home, including en-suite bedrooms, gardens, and more. We take pride in giving each of our residents a space that is both private and open for socialising and enjoying time with other residents and their loved ones whenever they’d like to.

We place an emphasis on giving our residents the freedom to continue living their lives as they see fit while also giving them access to a full and varied lifestyle, so they’re always given the option to choose. We take great pride in providing daily activity programmes, arts and crafts classes, aromatherapy, and religious services to our residents. We go to great efforts to suit the requirements and interests of our residents because we want no two days to be the same for them. 

Nursing Care

Those who require 24-hour care are given nursing care by our very own group of nursing professionals. Along with caring for the elderly, physically disabled, and individuals with high dependency needs, we also offer specialised care to people with illnesses like Huntington’s Disease, Multiple Sclerosis, and Motor Neurone Disease.

All potential residents and their loved ones are welcome to stop by for a casual conversation before moving in so that we can provide them with our advice and determine whether we can suit your needs. As soon as you become a resident at Struan Lodge, we will develop a customised care plan that is periodically reviewed to best represent your unique needs.

Nursing Care at Struan Lodge

Residential Care

Residential care is best suited for people who could be more likely to find it difficult to maintain their home or who might need extra assistance with daily tasks and self-care. It is also the best option for people who might benefit from living among others or are looking for companionship they cannot find with their immediate friends and family members.

Struan Lodge residents can enjoy home-cooked meals and rest comfortably in the knowledge that all household chores are taken care of while living in a lovely, furnished home with as little or as much support as they require. Our skilled team is available around-the-clock to support and care for our residents, no matter the circumstance.

Dementia Care 

We take great pride in being able to provide people with dementia with a secure, loving, and encouraging environment, where dementia care is administered on an around-the-clock basis by our skilled and knowledgeable team of staff.

Our staff routinely receives thorough training to ensure they are knowledgeable about the most recent techniques as well as to understand and manage all elements of dementia care. We like to support the general welfare of our residents by providing a variety of dementia-friendly activities and therapies in addition to round-the-clock care.

Respite Care

At our nursing home in Edinburgh, we also provide Respite Care, a short-term care option for individuals who require a break from providing care or who need time to recover after a recent sickness, accident, or hospital procedure.

We recognise that burnout can occasionally affect both caregivers and individuals who need assistance. A period of respite guarantees that care is provided around-the clock-and that residents can take advantage of all the amenities and social opportunities that our other residents enjoy. At Struan Lodge, we are pleased to assist, no matter what.

Activities & Days Out in Edinburgh

Struan Lodge is an incredibly unique nursing home located in Scotland’s capital city and goes to great measures to ensure that each and every one of its residents enjoys life inside and outside of our walls. We are conveniently situated close to communities like Westfield and Slateford and are on a residential street, giving our residents quick access to services like banks, supermarkets, restaurants, and public transportation. Less than 20 minutes drive from our home is Edinburgh City Centre.

We frequently take our residents on outings into the capital and encourage family members to use the first-rate transportation options we have to travel with us as well. Our residents and their family are welcome to spend an afternoon learning about the soldiers, kings, and queens that came before them at Edinburgh Castle. There are also many family-friendly activities available, such as going to Camera Obscura & World of Illusions, which features more than 100 interactive exhibits suitable for all ages. Edinburgh has a wide variety of bars and restaurants, so you’ll never run out of places to dine or drink.

RZSS Edinburgh Zoo is only a 7-minute walk from Struan Lodge, making it convenient for animal and wildlife enthusiasts. Whatever your age or hobbies might be, visiting the zoo—famous for sheltering Penguins and Giant Pandas—is the ideal way to spend the day. Those who love the outdoors can also visit Saughton Park & Gardens or Corstorphine Hill Viewpoint, which are great for strolls, picnics, spotting wildlife, and simply getting some fresh air. The Edinburgh Rugby Stadium and the Carrick Knowe Golf Course are both nearby, so those who like to play and watch sports won’t have too far to travel.
