The happiness and wellbeing of our residents is vitally important to us. Studies show that staying physically and mentally active can help to slow aspects of the ageing process. At Muirfield we certainly find that quality and enjoyment of life increases for our residents if they take part in our activity programme.

That’s why we have a full calendar of activities for residents to take part in, both individually and in groups. All residents are gently encouraged to join in, and we offer something for everyone, from exercise classes to promote physical health, to arts and crafts sessions to encourage creativity.

Our Activity Programme

With a number of activity coordinators and the planned weekly programme means that there’s something for everyone ─ from singing and trips to the beach to flower arranging and even pet therapy. We’re always keen to hear from residents so we can plan an activity calendar that suits their preferences and includes their favourite interests, so if there’s anything they’re particularly talented at, a hobby they love, or a new interest they wish to pursue, we’ll always try our best to include it in the schedule.

Below is a sample activity schedule for Muirfield House. Please note, activities vary from home to home and time of year.


Day Trips and Events

We benefit from a fantastic position in East Lothian, and our minibus enable us to take residents on day trips to places of interest in the local area. Some of our most popular recent trips have included visits to Edinburgh, and trips along the coast for picnics and visits to the beach.

Getting out and about means that residents’ activities can extend beyond events and classes taking place within Muirfield to those happening in the local community, and our residents relish the opportunity to mingle with local residents. As well as our regular day trips, we also organise community-based outings including church services, coffee mornings, tea dances and shopping trips.

Our calendar of events within Muirfield offers further choice. We try to encourage our residents to take part in physical activity, with options including garden walks and seated aerobics and Zumba led by qualified instructors.

We also love to get together in the evenings for fun parties. We recently held a Mamma Mia-themed event, and have also held Cluedo nights and casino games. We also regularly hold cinema nights for our residents, showing films on the big screen in the lovely large dining room.


We know how important contact with family and friends is to the physical and mental wellbeing of our residents. At this time, residents are allowed as many visits from all the people they would wish. Please check with Muirfield regarding any additional arrangements that are in place.



Some residents benefit from visiting pets and they are also welcome to visit Muirfield as long as they are kept under control and do not disturb other residents. It has been scientifically proven that the mere action of stroking a dog, or cat, slows down the heartbeat, reduces blood pressure, and makes someone who has already suffered a heart attack much less likely to have another.
