A Warm Welcome to Guthrie House Care Home, Edinburgh

A real home has as much personality as the people who live there.

You’ll find Guthrie House Care Home is a modern purpose-built home, set in landscaped gardens, conveniently situated in the South-East of Edinburgh. We are in easy reach of the A720 and close by to public transport, making us easily accessible for visitors to pop-in for a chat.

We are only half a mile from the shopping centre and a short drive away from the city centre, which makes for a great day out for residents and their loved ones.

We run a busy activities programme so residents get the most out of every day, including regular day trips out, and visiting entertainers. We have strong links with local voluntary groups and churches, who always put a smile on our residents’ faces.

“The staff are a great team and the home is so welcoming and full of fun.” – 5 star carehome.co.uk review

Key Information

We provide care for those who are publicly funded as well as those paying for their own care.

It’s important to get professional advice on the best way to fund the cost of care and we suggest that you take advice from a care fees expert to make sure that you have explored all the options available to you.

In order to make life easier we have contacted a national care fees planning specialist, Symponia who are dedicated to the financial issues of later life, in particular the payment of care fees. Through Symponia’s network of carefully selected and qualified financial advisers they offer you and/or your family member empathic, bespoke advice on the best way to fund weekly care fees. This approach ensures that not only are all our residents and their families aware of the legislation and how it works but they are able to explore all the financial options available to them.

It should be noted that Four Seasons Health Care and Symponia operate completely independently with no commission or financial benefit to Four Seasons Health Care as a result of your conversation or contract.
