Erskine first opened its doors in 1916 to care for the wounded of the First World War. Since then, the charity has built an unrivalled reputation due to its provision of first-class care to veterans across Scotland.
In 98 years, Erskine has cared for over 75,000 veterans, in five highly-specialised care homes in Bishopton, Erskine, Glasgow and Edinburgh. In the past year alone, the charity has cared for nearly 1,100 veterans.
Erskine’s vision is to provide person-centred care based on the needs of each individual veteran by working in partnership with those in their care. All bedrooms are equipped with full-disabled access and en-suite facilities with our accommodation suitable for both men and women. Erskine care homes also offer residents a range of services including on-site Physiotherapy, Dentistry, Podiatry, Speech & Language Therapy, enhanced medical services and dedicated activities.
In addition to its purpose-built care homes, Erskine provides accommodation for former members of the Armed Forces at 44 cottages within its Bishopton estate.
Erskine's proud history also extends beyond its provision of medical and nursing care by employing veterans and disabled workers within its Social Firms framework such as at Erskine Reid Macewen. A number of highly-skilled veterans are also employed within the wider organisation providing care for fellow veterans.
