Meet The Manager

Esther Bathgate is Care Home Manager at Gilmerton Care Home.

You’ll find Gilmerton Care Home has a welcoming and comfortable atmosphere, situated in Edinburgh. We are a short drive away from the city centre and nearby to public transport, making us easily accessible for visitors to pop-in for a chat.

Our Care team offers nursing care for people who have complex medical needs, and 24-hour nursing dementia care provided by specialist teams trained in the complexities of looking after those living with dementia, who may also have other long-term medical conditions. 

We also provide neurological care and rehabilitation where we support adults with complex physical disabilities or health needs caused by a range of neurological conditions. 

We put the health and happiness of people living here at the heart of everything we do, we love to actively encourage them to take part in all decisions – contributing to everything from the way their rooms look to the therapies they receive.

Our home is only a mile away from Cameron Toll shopping centre, which makes for great days out for residents and their loved ones.

The Importance Of Meal Times

There’s nothing quite like traditional home cooking to give everyone a lift.

We always ask residents and their families about their food preferences and dietary requirements. Our chef and catering team then work with dietitians to create meals that are nutritious and tasty, using fresh seasonal ingredients.

To add more variety, we also make a point of celebrating with special meals and events throughout the year. Residents can be served in our pleasant restaurant-style dining rooms or, if they prefer, they can take their meals in the privacy of their own rooms.


We Serve Food At
Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner.

Dietary Options
Vegetarian, Vegan, Pureed, Diabetic.

Activities Are So Important

Another way we can help our residents to feel at home is for them to do familiar things. So our dedicated Activities Leaders gently encourage residents to carry on doing things they enjoy. If someone had a hobby or pastime they did before they arrived, we’ll encourage them to continue it with us. Or perhaps they may like to learn something new.

The important thing is that we treat every resident as an individual. If they enjoy sharing time with others, either in our home or on an organised trip out, they’re most welcome. Or, if they prefer quiet time alone, we’ll respect that too.
