Erskine Park, our 40 bed purpose built care home in the grounds of the Erskine Estate, Haig House and Ramsay House, the two 30 bed units within Erskine Home, cater for the specific needs of people with dementia, supporting them to maximise their abilities and maintain an optimum level of independence. There are a further 22 beds dedicated to the care of people with dementia in our Edinburgh Home and 15 in Erskine Glasgow.
At Erskine our residents are respected as individuals and not defined by any condition. Our staff focus on each person’s strengths and abilities, and support them and their families to maintain a quality of life that is valued by them.
There is a very full programme of various activities and outings for residents and numerous social events in the home, both of which welcome the involvement of families. The focus is on maximising the potential of each resident and seeing the person behind the condition.
