Opened in 2008, Fidra House is a purpose built nursing home nestling within leafy grounds close to the heart of the community. Situated in the pretty coastal town of North Berwick and set in leafy grounds with trees, we provide high-quality nursing care for older people in a community setting.
We continue to offer the best care as we follow government guidelines in response to COVID 19
It is important to keep our staff and residents safe and we are performing weekly tests of staff for Covid in line with Government advice to limit the spread of the virus. All staff in our homes wear masks along with additional personal protective equipment, where necessary, to prevent any transfer of infection.
The Government have issued updates to the stage 3 visiting plan. Risk Assessments and procedures need to be approved by the local Public Health team. Home management will now plan how a phased process will work to keep everyone safe and will communicate to all residents and families as soon as possible.
We know the significance of staying connected with loved ones when there are still visiting restrictions and our team help residents with Skype, WhatsApp and FaceTime in order to keep in touch.
Our enthusiastic activity coordinators have found new ways of keeping residents active following social distancing guidelines such as garden entertainment, individual craft making and games in small groups.

Granddaughter, Fidra House
Many thanks for looking after mum. A special thank you to everyone up in Craig Suite for their very professional nursing care over the past two years. Such a loving, homely atmosphere and I was always made very welcome.
Luisa, daughter Fidra House
Before going to Fidra, she lived on her own from visiting Carers but was obviously depressed. Fidra care and staff have brought her back to life again.
