Meet The Manager

Margaret Russell is The Home Manager at Belleville Lodge Nursing Home.

Margaret Russell

Belleville Lodge is a beautiful stone villa with a sympathetic modern extension, set within award-winning private walled gardens.

Belleville Lodge offers space for up to 25 residents, including some twin rooms. It is managed by Matron Margaret Russell and her team.

COMMUNITY Belleville Lodge is home to many people from a wide range of backgrounds, and has a calm, welcoming atmosphere. The home is an established part of the local community, with good links to the local churches and in-house church services twice a month. The neighbours enjoy coming round for the annual garden party, and residents also have regular visits from local school children for arts and crafts activities and concerts.

The location in the heart of Edinburgh makes it easy for residents to enjoy theatre shows and art gallery visits, as well as the Edinburgh arts festivals. Friends and family are welcome to join us for outings and afternoon tea, and we help residents to use Skype to keep in touch with family further afield.

Autumna has invited care providers to evidence the infection control measures they are carrying out, above and beyond those laid out by the government, in order to keep residents, staff and visitors safe.

Infection Control Initiatives in place
safe-tick Infection Control Training Our staff are trained to use measures which prevent and control infections.
safe-tick Sterilisation & Disinfection Devices We are using sterilisation and/or disinfection devices within our care setting.
safe-tick Virus Testing We are testing for viral infection when symptoms present within our care setting.
Connectivity for resident testing, monitoring & communications

Infection control and the safety of both residents and staff often requires quarantine measures and the isolation of care home residents. To test, monitor and allow residents to communicate with relatives, the prevalence of room-level connectivity within the home is becoming increasingly relevant.
