Meet The Manager

Michael Meme is Care Home Manager at Guthrie House Care Home.

You’ll find Guthrie House Care Home is a modern purpose-built home, set in landscaped gardens, conveniently situated in the South-East of Edinburgh. We are in easy reach of the A720 and close by 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, as well as 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 run a busy activities programme so residents get the most out of every day, including regular day trips out, and visiting entertainers. We have strong links with local voluntary groups and churches, who always put a smile on our residents’ faces.

We are only half a mile from the shopping centre and a short drive away from the city centre, which makes for a great day 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.
