New home sets new standards in care

MANOR GRANGE CARE HOME, EDINBURGH

[EDINBURGH’S LATEST state-of-the-art care facility for the elderly, Manor Grange Care Home, is set to open its doors to residents in October.

Featuring 83 en-suite bedrooms, a coffee area, cinema room, hair salon, private fine dining, library and gym, it will create an environment in which its team will provide the highest standard of all-inclusive care, 24 hours each day.

Other rooms feature stunning views over the nearby Carrick Knowe Golf Course.
