newly refurbished at Colinton

brighterkind Colinton Care Home in Edinburgh

Last year saw big changes at Colinton – not only did we become a brighterkind home, the entire building was refurbished and refitted. The home is looking fantastic and all our residents and their relatives agree it’s a real change for the better.

What’s different?

Every room at Colinton has been given a full makeover. From carpets and paintwork to curtains, fittings and furniture, no corner was left unturned. A few of our rooms got a bit of an extension with new wet rooms installed as well, and it’s all made such a difference.

We’re so grateful to residents and their families who were especially patient while works were going on, but we think the results are definitely worth the inconvenience.

Phenomenal feedback

Residents are delighted with the home’s new look, as is Home Manager Gordon Philp who says: “We hold quite regular residents and relatives meetings and the feedback has been nothing short of phenomenal. You wouldn’t know it was a nursing home – it looks like a hotel when you walk through the door.”

We hope you’ll come and take a look for yourself.

A special day at Colinton

We were very proud to have recently host an open day at Colinton to celebrate its re-opening as a brighterkind care home.

Those who attended the day were able to experience:

  • Guided tours of the home and new facilities
  • An introduction by our Home Manager, Gordon Philp, and the team
  • Refreshments throughout the day

The team also demonstrated the benefits of digital technology in the home and the important role it plays in the activities programme and daily life for residents.
