The highest standards of individual care and support are provided to our residents by our experienced and dedicated staff.
Holmesview is run by our Manager Janice Dickson, whose managerial skills and dedication are often praised ─ but don’t take our word for it, see what people say.
Janice works closely with Holmesview Deputy Manager, John Bell and the rest of the team at Holmesview to delivery high quality care and service to their residents.
Holmesview Nursing Home gives peace of mind to residents and their families by providing a professional team of nurses, care and support staff, and where residents are treated with compassion, affection and, of course, respect.
At Holmesview, registered nurses and care workers are on duty 24 hours a day and are supported by managerial and administrative staff, domestic, kitchen and ancillary staff. Working together to form a strong professional unit where staff members know the name of every resident and have the ability to bring joy and fulfilment every day to residents
Holmesview is also supported by our Head Office Team.
Expertise and Continuity
Our team at Holmesview are committed to providing a warm, safe, caring and stimulating environment and offering a positive quality of life to our residents. Many staff members have worked for Randolph Hill Nursing Homes Group for a number of years and transferred to Holmesview when it opened in 2011. Holmesview staff provide essential person-centred care and contribute to the family atmosphere. A named nurse and key worker is assigned to each resident to ensure that individuals feel cared for. We find that a single point of contact is helpful for families who would like to know how their relative is faring or to discuss any aspects of their care.

I have been very impressed with the standard of care my father received. I know he was content, happy and genuinely well cared for. I realise that dementia is a difficult illness to deal with, but all the staff treated my father with respect and kindness and looked beyond the disease to the person, which is so important.
I was always given a warm welcome on arrival by your receptionist and found all the staff to be professional and friendly. The entertainment and outings have been varied and stimulating for my father and I know he particularly liked the personal gestures of letting him hold a kitten, and a visit to the Transport Museum; two of his favourite things.
My father never questioned why he was not in his own home. I feel that it was because of the warm atmosphere; a home from home. He really enjoyed the company and the wonderful food!
Most of all I have been impressed and grateful for the way my father was looked after during his last days, allowing him to die with dignity and in peace.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of you for the care and attention shown to my mum.
I witnessed a level of care which I believe went way beyond the role of each person involved. I saw people coming in just to say hello or if going off, would say goodbye. It was lovely witnessing day and night staff coming in to see my mum on unscheduled visits. I believe this to be way beyond and above the normal call of nurse duty. I would like you to know that the family are grateful for all you did and should take great pride knowing my mum received the 110% care she deserved as all mums should get.

Dad participates in many activities which I feel he enjoys and this stimulates him. Before entering the care home he did not do very much at all.

My mum was one of the first residents to move into the home in Broxburn. While it was being built, we regularly took her down to see the building gradually taking shape and eventually became the modern, homely, well run establishment it is today.
Within a short period of time, my mum started to enjoy life again. I believe that Holmesview provided a holistic approach to her care.
As a family we will always be thankful to the staff at Holmesview for the fantastic care given to my mum, helping to eradicate previous memories relating to her care. I’m sure that at times my mum would have conveyed these same thoughts to the staff. Having worked within the care industry myself for 20 years, I believe that Holmesview have an excellent approach to care for the residents and their families.

Alastair, Husband of Resident, Holmesview
I have been a resident here for 10 months and I feel very much at home and one of the family. I am very well cared for and nothing is too much trouble. I especially enjoy the different activities provided, bus trips etc. Life is never dull or boring.
