The home has a relaxed atmosphere and residents choose when they wish to get up and when they wish to retire in the evening. Breakfast is between 8am and 10am, lunch is served at 12.30pm and the evening meal is at 5.30pm. Snacks are available throughout the day and visitors are made to feel welcome at all times.

Settling in to your new home is of the upmost importance to us. Within your first 24 hours at Haddington Care Home you will have met with your dedicated staff member, discussed your care plan and any particular requirements you may have. We actively encourage residents to bring small items of furniture, ornaments and pictures to make their room feel like their own and provide a homely living environment.
All meals are cooked on the premises, and prepared using fresh ingredients where possible. The food is of a traditional fayre and residents are asked for their input in preparing our menu, which changes regularly. We pride ourselves in using produce that is sourced locally.
Delicious home baking is provided daily, and snacks and drinks are provided for visitors and upon request. Catering for private parties and private dining is also available on request, provided some notice has been given.
A variety of activities are provided throughout each day and residents are encouraged to choose those they wish to take part in. Activities range from reminiscence and arts and crafts to exercise classes!
Staff support residents to maintain links in the community, by visiting local cafés and shops as the high street is nearby and within easy walking distance. We have regular visits from the local nursery children, which are enjoyed by everyone. Entertainers also visit regularly and we have coffee mornings and fundraising events within the home, which are well attended and supported by the local community.
