Scottish home to prioritise GP visits

Luxury home Cramond Residence in Edinburgh has announced that it will prioritise resident care by ensuring twice-weekly GP appointments.

Cramond Residence, which specialises in dementia care, already boasts a wellness and physiotherapy suite, a room dedicated to Allied Health Professionals, and a gym.

Since its opening in October 2018 after an investment of £8m, the Cramond Residence has championed the concept of small group living, emphasising social connections. Specialising in a comprehensive range of dementia care services, the home accommodates residents in both its communal living spaces and a dedicated section for those with advanced dementia needs.

General manager Ross Bijak said: “Usually, those who stay with us are dealing with complex health issues and we want to ensure that we provide them with the very best healthcare possible.

“We’re incredibly fortunate to be able to provide this to our residents, by offering frequent GP checkups we can ensure we are on top of any medical concerns and that our resident’s families can have peace of mind knowing that any issues are frequently monitored and managed.

“We believe we have one of the best care programmes in Scotland. We have a fantastic in-house nursing team and state-of-the-art facilities and this is further solidified by the frequent GP visits which our residents benefit from every Tuesday and Friday.

“Our team keep the GPs updated about on any medical challenges that our residents face, and then after a thorough check-up, the GP's insights help us update our records and fine-tune care plans to meet each resident's unique needs.

“Everything we do happens right here in the comfort of the residence, so there's hardly any disruption to the everyday lives of our residents. Plus, having the same friendly faces of doctors for check-ups brings a comforting sense of consistency and trust for both our residents and their loved ones.”
