Viewpoint’s care homes provide 24-hour nursing care, as well as specialist care for people living with dementia. Our registered nursing team and trained carers pride themselves in providing excellent care tailored to your individual needs.

Situated in quiet residential areas of Edinburgh, our three homes offer a safe, caring and comfortable environment for those requiring frequent support and specialised nursing care. We have a wide range of services available to residents who make their home with us.

At each of our homes residents receive a personal plan and can therefore be confident that support, care needs and personal preferences will be met. Our dedicated team is committed to ensuring a continuously high standard of person-centred care.

Marian House
Is situated in the quiet, residential Grange area of Edinburgh, just three miles from the city centre. There is a regular bus service into the city as well as good amenities within easy walking distance. The home benefits from a beautiful secluded garden with several sitting areas surrounded by mature trees.

Activity is important to us all. Social activities and events are organised by our Activities Coordinators, who make sure a varied programme is in place to suit the interests of our residents. In a typical week these could include the gardening club, film nights, a visit to the theatre, reminiscence groups, Viewpoint Voices Choir, live music performances or an afternoon in our Craft Cafe.

Examples of our summer outings; Ratho Barge, North Berwick for Fish and Chips, Pentland Plants for afternoon tea, Portobello for ice cream, Saughton Gardens for a look around the Rose Garden and many more.
