About Us

Walker Healthcare has been successfully delivering a range of services spanning the development and operational management of well-respected care homes for more than 20 years.

We manage a network of care homes and hospitals across the UK in partnership with the NHS and other specialist providers. These provide essential care for frail elderly people, including dementia and palliative care, and for people with mental health problems or learning disabilities.

We designed, built or redeveloped these care facilities, giving us a unique understanding of the management and operational requirements of a successful care home. We are skilled at working with a range of partners to ensure all aspects of care services and management integrate seamlessly.

Our facilities aim to provide residents and patients with the best possible care in a comfortable environment. Many of our homes are designed around extensive landscaped gardens, for people to enjoy at their leisure or host a range of events and activities which promote community living.

We recently combined our wide ranging experience to build and manage our own exclusive private care home, Cramond Residence, in Edinburgh, for older people.

Walker Healthcare was established in 1995. It is a division of James Walker Leith Ltd, a leading independent company established in 1863, which includes Dundas Estates and Walker Timber.
