Covid-19 UPDATE...

New admissions

Our homes are now accepting new admissions. All new residents are being asked to take a test for the virus – ideally prior to admission, or at the beginning of their stay. Residents will be cared for in isolation during the first fourteen days of their stay, and will be supported under our Fourteen Day Promise. This promise ensures new residents do not feel isolated and includes support for daily video or phone calls with family, an enhanced in-room dining service, family involvement in care planning and a personalised lifestyle and activities programme agreed upon arrival.

Situated in the Morningside area of Edinburgh, Morlich House is a well established part of the community and well connected to the city centre.

The personalised support we offer is very much led and guided by our residents.

We have 23 ensuite bedrooms and a variety of lounges that are available in which to sit and socialise or just relax. There is a bright conservatory if you enjoy a light room, or want to look out onto the garden.
