The Erskine Edinburgh Home

The Erskine Edinburgh Home opened in 2002 and is situated in Gilmerton in the heart of the local community. The purpose built care home provides nursing and dementia care, both long term and respite, for 88 residents on a 24 hour basis.

A wide range of services is available to all residents. We actively encourage them to participate in events that are appropriate for their ability but individuals are always free to make their own choice.

"Dad is very well cared for and has improved since he was admitted. Staff are very supportive of us as well as Dad, they are caring and compassionate."
