Dementia Care

Dementia is a neurological condition that affects those of an older age in a variety of ways including their memory, cognitive skills and social abilities. Those living with dementia can continue to live a vibrant and full day with the right dementia care and support from our compassionate team, able to participate in dementia-friendly activities on a regular basis. We strive to provide the ideal balance between offering support while also encouraging independence. 

At Haddington Care Home we treat every resident as the individual that they are as no two diagnoses are the same. Our staff has received ongoing dementia care training in order to provide specialist dementia care and ensure our residents are being cared for in the best way possible.

Residential Care

Residential care is offered to those who enjoy a communal setting instead of living by themselves or in their family’s home, where assistance is provided to those who need help with everyday tasks. Residential care provides a varied and fulfilling way of life for those who are still able to live independently, but who want to spend time carrying out their hobbies with those who share similar interests. 

Our staff can aid with tasks such as washing, dressing, medication administration, and mobility. Residents who receive residential care can treat Haddington as their own and live every day the way they want to, free of housekeeping chores, cooking and cleaning.

Respite Care

Respite care is a form of short-term care that provides people who are primary caregivers with a well-deserved break from their caregiving duties. If someone is recently recovering from an illness, injury or operation, this type of care will allow the individual to recover in the best way possible.

Respite care is also available for those looking to move into our home in East Lothian, but would prefer a trial stay before deciding to live here permanently. No matter how long someone needs care, every individual receives only the highest-quality, personalised care until they feel ready to return to their normal lives.

Providing Support For You & Your Loved One

Finding a care home for a loved one can often be an overwhelming process and difficult time for many. It could be that someone close to you is struggling to maintain their household or that they are showing signs of dementia or a long-term health condition. We understand that each person’s needs require a different level of care, that’s why we at Haddington carefully assess our new residents prior to admission in order to create a care plan solely for them. 

We invite you to sit with our knowledgeable team to talk about your loved one’s needs, where we can discuss the different types of care available and recommend a suitable care approach. We want to ensure you and your family member feels comfortable making an informed decision. Haddington Care Home in East Lothian is regulated by the Care Inspectorate.
