Drummond Grange Care Home in Lasswade, Edinburgh

At Drummond Grange we provide support to 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.

In addition, on separate units we provide first class 24-hour care for older people with varying nursing or residential support needs. We also have a dedicated Memory Lane Community, where our team is specifically trained to provide the highest standard of care for people living with dementia.

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.

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.

Our Team

Alina Brehar

Acting General Manager

Hi, my name is Alina and I am the Acting General Manager here at Drummond Grange. Welcome to our website!

I graduated in 2003 and began working as an RGN. I lived in Romania until 2006, which is when I came in to the UK, and then started working in South Shields in a residential care home as a senior carer assistant, until I registered with NMC. I moved to Edinburgh in 2008 and took up a nurse position at Drummond Grange, and have spent my time here working my way up to Acting General Manager.

At present, I am working on my NVQ Level 5 in Management & Leadership. I feel very passionate about the home and everyone we support, and I consider Drummond Grange to be my second home.

I am very approachable, honest and open to any positive ideas when it comes to improving the quality of our services.
