Nursing Home in Edinburgh

Trinity House is a purpose-built nursing home located in Edinburgh that offers around-the-clock Nursing Care, Dementia Care, Residential Care, and Respite Care for up to 55 residents. 

We strive to provide our residents with an enriched and fulfilling lifestyle. At our private, all-inclusive nursing home, we do just that thanks to our fantastic care and support, as well as our exceptional on-site facilities and varied activities programme.

What is a Nursing Home? 

Nursing homes fall under the umbrella term of ‘care homes’ but are more specific in the type of care they provide. Some care facilities may be labelled a ‘residential nursing home’ or ‘care home with nursing’ and this indicates that care and support are provided by qualified nurses as well as care assistants. 

Similar to residential care homes, nursing homes still provide around-the-clock care and support with personal care and medication management, however, they are also equipped to offer care to those with specific health conditions and disabilities. Those who struggle with day-to-day life and need additional support due to these conditions will benefit from living in a nursing home as there is always at least one registered nurse available and therefore residents can rest assured they have access to medical care and nursing support 24/7.

Support at Trinity House Care Home

At Trinity House Care Home, personalised care is at the heart of our approach. Prior to moving into our home, we offer prospective residents and their family members and friends the opportunity to come in and speak to our experienced care team. We then offer our advice and help in deciding what route is best for you, and ensure that we can successfully meet your individual needs. Upon joining the Trinity House family, we create customised care plans that are specific to the requirements of each resident. These are regularly monitored and if we identify any changes that are needed, we consult both our residents and their loved ones first. 

We value each and every one of our residents for the individuals that they are and we understand that they all have different interests and preferences. All of our support and care teams go to great lengths to build relationships with our residents to learn exactly what they like and dislike. Whether it is our activities team who creates our weekly programmes, or our Chef that puts together our delicious menus, we take on board our resident’s preferences to enable them to live their lives how they want. From the various care services we provide to the facilities and the activities we hold, we are proud of the varied, comforting, and supportive lifestyle we offer. 

We are also proud to be regulated by the Care Inspectorate (CI), a scrutiny organisation that supports improvement in health and social care services across Scotland. At Trinity House, we are always striving for the highest standards in everything we do.

Our Nursing Home in Edinburgh

We provide nursing care in Edinburgh, as well as general support for older people, nursing dementia care, and specialist care for those who require palliative care. No matter what our resident’s reasons are for staying with us or their length of stay, we pride ourselves on delivering the highest quality of care in everything we do.

Our grand, three-story home blends beautiful architecture with modern comforts, providing our residents with everything they need. All of our bedrooms are fully furnished and offer en-suite facilities. We also encourage residents to bring small items of their own furniture and other personal belongings that will make them feel truly at home. Both the staff and people living at Trinity House benefit from our location, which is less than a 20-minute drive from our spectacular capital city, Edinburgh. We are also perfectly positioned between Trinity and Leith, local neighbourhoods that offer a plethora of supermarkets, restaurants, and parks, all within 10 minutes. Our residents can easily explore our local community and beyond thanks to our chauffeur-driven and contracted taxi service. Whether our residents want to run personal errands or organise a day out with friends or family, we help our residents make the most of life outside our home.

For those who enjoy the great outdoors, there is plenty of opportunities both at Trinity House and the surrounding areas to go out for some fresh air, a stroll, and to admire nature. Just a couple of minutes away is Victoria Park, an area where residents can see wildlife and enjoy a picnic. Closer to the centre of Edinburgh is Holyrood Park, a spectacular area for walking and views of the capital, and it also has a rich heritage to learn about. No matter where you go in Edinburgh, there is something for all ages and interests. Both the Old & New Towns of Edinburgh offer fantastic days out with a variety of places to eat, drink and discover, whether that be with fellow residents or visiting family members. The area of Grassmarket is particularly great for shops and pubs, and the Royal Mile offers some fantastic architecture on route to the impressive Edinburgh Castle.
