Archview Lodge Care Home in Dalkeith
Archview Lodge is conveniently located in the centre of the historic town of Dalkeith, with easy access to local facilities and public transport. The home is surrounded by woodland with beautiful landscaped gardens, secure and easily accessible for wheelchair users. It is a bright, welcoming purpose-built home providing nursing care for frail older people and for people living with dementia.
Archview Lodge has a dedicated Memory Lane Community that provides a safe, homely environment for people living with dementia, which has been designed following these guidelines ensuring the care we provide supports residents’ freedom of choice. We aim to maintain their life-skills, improving their self-esteem and helping them to maintain and develop their independence while they are living with us.
Staff undertake specialist dementia care training developed by our team of Dementia Care Specialists and academic partners, the Centre for Dementia Research at Leeds Beckett University. Together they ensure our training programmes are informed by the very latest thinking. We ensure that the people we support feel comfortable and safe in their surrounding environment, helping ensure they live life with dementia to the full.
Choosing a care home for a loved one or friend who may be experiencing dementia can be difficult and we have created a guide to showcase how we ‘Enrich the lives of people living with dementia’ in our care home.
Here's how we set out our principles: ‘The aim of the home is to provide the highest possible standard of care. The residents' individuality, dignity, privacy and independence are not compromised because they are elderly, confused or disabled. Our aim is to give residents the best possible quality of life.’
The well designed, purpose-built home is made up of single rooms with en-suite bathrooms. Residents are encouraged to personalise rooms and to redecorate them as they wish.
Links with the local community are preserved for all residents.
Archview Lodge has a lot to offer people with a wide variety of needs. We welcome enquiries and visitors.

Hi, my name is Sarah and I am the General Manager here at Archview Lodge. Welcome to our website!
Here you will have the opportunity to look further into what Archview Lodge can offer you and your loved one. You will also be able to familiarise yourself with the team who all assist in delivering quality person centred care on a daily basis.
I have over 30 years nursing experience; I trained and worked in London teaching hospitals before living abroad and then moving back to Scotland to be nearer to family. I love being a nurse and particularly enjoy looking after older adults, who I feel can offer us new insights into life. I find this area of nursing very rewarding and an it’s privilege to work with the team at Archview.Get in touch Meet my team
