This week everyone at LifeCare has been enjoying celebrating The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee and her 70 years of service!

The Queen officially opened Dalry House in October 1967 from which LifeCare (then Edinburgh and Leith Old People’s Welfare Council) provided all sorts of support including social activities and hot meals. At it’s height Dalry House supported 2000 older people in the local community.

And that’s not our only royal connection! The Queen Mother opened Lamb’s House in 1961 and Stockbridge House, our current home, in 1975.

Princess Anne officially opened our specialist dementia day club, St Bernard’s, in 1991. The club has now been running for over 30 years with current members enjoying celebrating the Jubilee this week.
