Welcome to Letham Park Care Home in Edinburgh
Letham Park is a warm and welcoming purpose-built care home situated in the Trinity area of Edinburgh. It sits in the same leafy grounds as our Mathieson House care home and offers specialised nursing care for elderly residents. Our skilled team work closely with residents and their families to create a safe and caring home, where people thrive.
A recent refurbishment of the property has created a fresh new look and the resulting finish is high-spec but homely, giving residents and staff a positive and pleasant environment in which to live and work.
A home from home
Letham Park provides nursing care for up to 50 residents, accommodated in charming single occupancy, en-suite bedrooms. We encourage all our residents to personalise their rooms with their treasured possessions, giving a real home-from-home feel and a sense of connection to friends and family.
Our cosy and convivial lounges inspire socialising, spending time with family and forging new friendships but there are also many tranquil spaces for relaxing quietly or curling up with a good book. We have two beautiful conservatories, offering the perfect connection to the outdoors. From here, there are views out over our pretty private gardens, which really come into their own in the summer months.
Compassionate care 24 hours a day
Letham Park’s registered nurses and expert care staff are available around the clock, so our residents always feel safe and supported. A wide range of additional healthcare services can be accessed via our local GP, who visits regularly. These include vision care, dental care, podiatry and holistic therapies.
We are proud to provide person-centred care. This means every resident is in control of their care, with their individual clinical and social needs driving their own bespoke support plan. We get to know our residents and their loved ones, working together to create a personalised care approach to help our residents thrive mentally and physically.
A recipe for wellbeing
Great, wholesome food is at the very heart of our care. Our chef consults with all our residents to determine their personal nutrition needs and discover any likes and dislikes. Meals and home baking are prepared from scratch in the Lethem Park kitchen by our professional cooks and the menus are rotated and refreshed with the seasons. All our menus include a vegetarian option and are designed to ensure that everyone enjoys a nutritious, well-balanced diet to help them to feel their best.
We also have a full in-house laundry for residents, a newspaper delivery service and an on-site hairdresser for a little pampering pleasure. An activity and wellbeing programme is devised with our residents’ input to ensure a selection of physical, cerebral and social events are available to everyone. These range from adventures and excursions, shopping trips and local school and nursery partnerships to board-game nights and group celebrations. There really is something for everyone at Letham Park.
