Welcome to Pentland Hill Care Home in Edinburgh

Appetites, sleeping patterns and general well-being are all improved when residents have something fun to look forward to every day. Our dedicated activity co-ordinator is always open to suggestions from residents about hobbies and pastimes they might like to try.

Gentle gardening, film clubs and arts and crafts sessions are all great ways to keep the mind and body active. Friends and family are free to pop in at any time and join in – there really is something for everyone.

We also organise regular days out to places of interest around Edinburgh as well as coffee mornings and shopping trips.

How do I arrange a visit?

We have an open door policy, so you are welcome to pop in to the home at any time. However, we recommend you avoid visiting at main meal times as these can be very busy. If you would like to speak to the home manager when you visit, you can make an appointment by calling us first.

Can I bring my own furniture?

Depending on its size, new residents are welcome to bring furniture to their new room. Many of our residents bring a favourite armchair or pictures and other small belongings to personalise their room.

How soon can I move in?

This depends on availability of rooms in the home, understanding the cost of care and the person moving in receiving a care assessment.
