living rooms at St Margarets

brighterkind St Margarets in Edinburgh

Relax, socialise, get involved

There is a lounge area on each floor, for the residents to use at their leisure. Each lounge is well appointed. 

Whether you’re entertaining your family and friends, spending time with other residents or taking part in activities, our living room is ideal. It’s always up to you whether you want to get involved with activities – you’re more than welcome to sit back, relax and enjoy the atmosphere.

Making friends

Our communal lounge spaces are very popular with the residents and they’re where a lot of the socialising in the home takes place, as well as in the dining rooms. And our activities often get residents talking about their lives and experiences in a fun, relaxed setting.

Find out more about our recreational activities.


How can residents spend private time with their relatives?

There are two quiet lounges in the home – one of the top floor and one on the ground floor – where families enjoy the peace and quiet together. You’re also free to use any of the home or gardens, or your own room, to meet with your visitors.

Can residents continue to have visitors?

Absolutely! Your family can visit at any time. We do try to protect meal times so that residents can eat in peace and privacy. However if you would like to have a meal with your relative, we can accommodate this. We even have a small lounge that can be booked by families for celebrations. 

Are residents free to come and go around the home as they please?

Of course. This is your home and all the communal areas are here for you to enjoy. If you’d rather spend the day in your room, that’s your choice too.
