Edina Court, located in the Capital of the Fens northeast of Peterborough, comprises three adjacent properties Edina Court itself, The Haven and Bramley Lodge. They offer retirement living with care together with a dementia specialist day care service, The Rosebank Centre, also in the grounds.
At Edina Court, we now provide 24hour staffing on site. We deliver around the clock support and care tailored to individual needs.
Edina Court was opened in 1986 by Lady Fermoy, the maternal grandmother of Diana, Princess of Wales. It had been the home of Mr and Mrs Alan Hudson, fruit farmers in Wisbech. On the death of his wife, Mr Hudson gave the house to MHA on the condition that 20 flats would be built for older people. The Hudson Foundation has continued to support MHA and has been fundamental in the ongoing development of MHAs presence in Wisbech with donations totalling over GBP 250,000.
In 1994, the Hudson Foundation generously donated the capital costs of The Haven, a Victorian house two doors down the road, and this was converted into twelve more apartments. Ten years later, Bramley Lodge was created, again with the support of the Hudson Foundation, providing 18 more apartments and a wellused library and games room for all residents to use.
At the same time, The Rosebank Centre was built with an incredible GBP 500,000 from the Garfield Weston Foundation. The Centre serves up to 20 people with dementia. It aims to provide stimulation for its service users, while carers receive a welldeserved days rest and the reassurance that their loved ones are being well looked after.
