Cairn Housing Association has two care homes in Edinburgh.

Cherryholme House (care home)

Our care homes provide individual private rooms (19 in Cherryholme) in a warm, friendly and highly supportive environment. Each room is provided with carpet, curtains, bed and a small lockable wall cabinet for valuables. This means that you may bring your own favourite furniture, pictures and valued belongings to ensure your new home is as comfortable and familiar to you as your old one. A call system is provided, both cord and pendant, and a telephone point is installed so you may arrange your own private line connection.

Cherryholme House is an elegant house set in a leafy suburb. Round-the-clock care from experienced staff ensures residents' well-being, stimulation, company and attention. Our outlook is to provide quality of life experience which is fulfilling and an opportunity for residents to participate as equal citizens.
