Ashley Court nursing home, open since 1994, in the pleasant Morningside neighbourhood enjoys the convenience and great views of the city and countryside and provides high-quality nursing care for older people in a community setting.
We continue to offer the best care as we follow government guidelines in response to COVID 19
It is important to keep our staff and residents safe and we are performing weekly tests of staff for Covid in line with Government advice to limit the spread of the virus. All staff in our homes wear masks along with additional personal protective equipment, where necessary, to prevent any transfer of infection.
The Government have issued updates to the stage 3 visiting plan. Risk Assessments and procedures need to be approved by the local Public Health team. Home management will now plan how a phased process will work to keep everyone safe and will communicate to all residents and families as soon as possible.
We know the significance of staying connected with loved ones when there are still visiting restrictions and our team help residents with Skype, WhatsApp and FaceTime in order to keep in touch.
Our enthusiastic activity coordinators have found new ways of keeping residents active following social distancing guidelines such as garden entertainment, individual craft making and games in small groups.

Thanks for all you did for mum in the months she was in Ashley Court. She found everyone very kind and helpful, as did I.

Thank you so much for the care given to my parents. I could not have wished for a better home for them in their final months. Everyone has a smile and a kind word, and nothing is too much trouble. With my heart-felt thanks and best wishes to you all.
