Thea and her husband Peter moved to Dalkeith Heights six years ago. When her husband required additional support, he moved next door to Benetas Dalkeith Gardens. Thea remained in the village, only a short walk from Peter, ensuring they can share their days together, even if they no longer share a home.

"It was the best choice for us, and we felt it was the best move we ever made."

"We definitely live a very relaxing life here and I enjoy living in this community where I have always felt safe and secure."

Anne and Cheryl


"Moving to Dalkeith Heights was so easy for us, as it has brought us closer to our family. We have made new friends and have found an extended family, as the people and the staff here are friendly, caring and inclusive. Dalkeith Heights has provided us the perfect living space. We love being active and social, and we enjoy the many benefits and facilities that Dalkeith Heights provides us."



"When my husband had to move to the Dalkeith Gardens, I felt it was easier on us both that I was still only a short walk from my home and we could still share our days together, even though he was in care.

The village community is like a family which you can be a part of, and still do your own thing as well.

It was the best choice for us, and we felt it was the best move we ever made."
