Our beautiful stone-built house has been specially adapted to accommodate older people. The cosy, homely style makes the transition from their own home to Muirfield much easier.
Rooms can be personalised by the resident with their choice of wall colours and soft furnishings, and we encourage personal mementos and furniture, if space allows. On one occasion we recreated a resident’s own lounge complete with their much-loved fireplace and mirror! As long as the layout gives us space to nurse in, we’ll do our best to make rooms as comfortable and familiar as possible.
Residents have a choice of two lounges, with comfortable furnishings and different views of Gullane.
Our beautifully maintained gardens let residents enjoy the sun or become involved in seasonal gardening projects. In the summer there are places to sit and watch life go by, and keep in contact with local people.
All areas of the home are wheelchair friendly and specifically designed to support people with dementia.
We also understand that maintaining a sense of privacy and dignity is fundamental to enjoying life at Muirfield. That’s why we take something as simple as laundry so seriously: fresh towels are supplied after each use and we will label all clothes and make sure they are returned clean and pressed.
We have a hair salon in the home and regular visits from an aromatherapist - we believe that relaxing and looking your best is important, even more so for older people.
Friends and relatives are encouraged to visit as often as possible. Our chef is a very accomplished baker and there’s usually an array of homemade treats for visitors as well too!
We have secured planning consent for a beautiful new 60-bed nursing home to be built next to our existing Muirfield building. The facilities will be state-of-the-art and completely appropriate for older people, including those with sensory impairments and dementia. We look forward to opening our new building.
