Barchester officially opens Edinburgh care home
Barchester Healthcare has officially opened its Queens Manor care home in Edinburgh.
The home, which will provide care for 60 people and create 100 jobs, was officially launched by Frank Ross, Edinburgh’s Right Honourable Lord Provost.
The Lord Provost said: “We are delighted and honoured that Barchester have created a new home to take care of our loved ones with the best quality care available. Moving into a care home is one of the bigger decisions we make in our lives so it’s a wonderful thing to have Queens Manor here in the city of Edinburgh, it already feels like home.”
Since the launch of its show suites, the home has been hosting events for the local community, including life drawing classes, zumba, whisky tastings and a special talk on innovations in dementia care by creator of Jelly Drops, Lewis Hornby.
The home also recently installed a ‘Magic Table’ the Tovertafel, a table-based digital learning tool that promotes stimulation and cognitive challenges through specialised games for people living with dementia.
Lucy Duffin, General Manager at Queens Manor, said: “We are all very excited about the opening of Queens Manor our newly appointed team have really enjoyed meeting new residents and their families, as well as the Lord Provost.”
“Barchester brings over 25 years’ experience in expert care to Edinburgh, which means residents and their relatives can feel safe in the knowledge that they are in trusted hands.”
