Drummond Grange Care Home in Lasswade, Edinburgh
We are located in Lasswade, a picturesque village on the edge of the river North Esk, but we are only six miles from Edinburgh for those looking for city life and leisure opportunities.
At Drummond Grange, we provide a range of accommodation and services for older people in need of support and younger adults with physical disabilities, including spinal injury. We also support and care for people with long-term illnesses, such as Huntington's disease and multiple sclerosis. The care we provide varies from life support ventilation, physiotherapy and enteral feeding to physical and psychological assistance with daily routines or pastimes.
We also provide specialist support for individuals living with dementia in our bespoke Memory Lane Community, where care is focused on independence, dignity and choice, with a person centred approach. We have also invested in a 'Magic Table' for our home, an interactive light projector designed to support people living with dementia through mentally and physically stimulating games.
We would be delighted to discuss your specific needs and wishes in person and are confident that we can meet your needs, both now and in the future.
Please feel free to contact us or visit at any time.

Hi, my name is Eleanor, and I am the General Manager here at Drummond Grange. Welcome to our website!
I have been nursing since 1972, having begun my career as a Nursing Assistant in one of the largest psychiatric hospitals in the county. I continued to develop my career, working in various specialties in both hospital and community in NHS Lanarkshire. My last post within the NHS before taking early retirement was as a General Manger for Motherwell Locality, with an area wide lead for older people with mental health problems, including dementia.
My retirement was short lived and, after a brief period of rest and relaxation, I joined Barchester as Deputy Manager at Alexandra Court in Glasgow, where I worked happily for two years.
I came to Drummond Grange on a temporary basis at the beginning of 2014 and found the welcome I received from residents and colleagues overwhelming, and as such was delighted to be offered the opportunity to join the team on a permanent basis.
In 2016, I won a Resident Engagement Award at the 18th National Care Awards because of the proven positive effect I have had on residents and staff whilst working at Drummond Grange.Get in touch Meet my team
