Find Your Next Job at Archview Lodge Care Home in Dalkeith
Archview Lodge is a bright and welcoming purpose-built home providing nursing care for frail older people and for people living with dementia. Set within beautiful, secure and accessible landscaped gardens, we’ve invested in a major refurbishment to give the home a new look designed with our residents front of mind.
That includes a bright new reception area as well as a beautifully appointed dining room. We’ve given our 78 ensuite rooms a makeover too, and we encourage our residents to personalise them as they choose. We have strong links with the local community, a vibrant activities programme to suit every interest and ability, and a talented team of chefs serving up food that’s as delicious as it is nutritious.
There’s a real sense of camaraderie at Archview Lodge and this enables us to deliver the very best in person-centred care. In the Your Care Rating 2016 survey, for example, we received an overall score of 933 out of 1,000 by residents, and 928 by family and friends. From our carers and nurses to our administrators, managers and chefs, every member of our team respects our residents’ individuality, dignity, privacy and independence, and helps them to enjoy the best possible quality of life.
