Edinburgh’s newest care home, Cramond Residence, has officially opened its doors and welcomed its first residents.
The Cramond Residence offers 74 luxury en-suite bedrooms and provides the highest quality person-centred nursing care for older people in the capital.
Now, having filled a number of key positions before opening, the Residence is recruiting for a further 50 roles, including care assistants (SVQ2 and above), team leaders, nurses, laundry and domestic staff, and food service assistants.
The care home comprises nine distinct houses to promote small community living, each of which has been uniquely designed to reflect well-known areas of Edinburgh. It also boasts a wide range of lounge, dining and activities rooms, as well as a hairdresser, nail bar and cinema.
Thanks to an exclusive partnership with physiotherapy provider Balanced Edinburgh - specialists in functional rehabilitation and fall prevention for older people - residents will be given a thorough assessment on arrival, which will be used to create bespoke care and fitness plans, tailored to individual needs.
The team will be led by general manager, Eileen Gray, who is well established in the care industry with over 20 years’ experience.
She said: “We are very excited to have opened our doors at Cramond Residence and are really looking forward to welcoming our first residents into their beautiful new home.
“We are now moving into the final stages of our recruitment campaign and are seeking talented and compassionate individuals to fill a further 50 roles.
“We are passionate about delivering the finest care and it is hugely important to us that our residents feel independent and have as active and fulfilling lives as possible, so we are looking for the highest calibre of person to fill each and every role.
“Cramond Residence is a place where people can really enjoy their later years and we would encourage anyone with a passion for caring who is interested in working with us to enquire as soon as possible."
Cramond Residence is managed exclusively by Walker Healthcare, which has over 20 years’ experience leading successful healthcare partnerships and operational management of well-respected care homes.
