Edinburgh House is to move from Wembley


Sephardi residential home Edinburgh House is looking to move to a new site after 38 years in its north-west London premises.

The executive of the Wembley home, caring for 51 elderly clients, decided to relocate after assessing the level of modernisation required on the current site.

In a statement, the board noted that “while the Care Quality Commission recognises the excellent care provided and the home is much loved and valued by its residents, the accommodation and facilities are in urgent need of updating and modernising”.

After investigating whether the premises could be redeveloped, the executive of the 268-year-old home decided to seek a new and more convenient location.

“Looking to the future, the trustees have investigated the feasibility of rebuilding on the current site and are looking at the potential to relocate Edinburgh House to a new-build home closer to the heart of the community.

“It will be some years until such a project is complete. The welfare of its current residents will always be the main priority — and at the heart of any decision taken.”
