Set in the pretty village of Gullane, East Lothian, Muirfield is a much-loved nursing home at the heart of the community. Opened in 2017, our magnificent specially designed home was recently completed to an exceptional standard.
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.

Just a short note to say thank you so much, to all of you, for looking after my father, and making his last months more comfortable.
Joanna, daughter Muirfield
I am so thankful for the wonderful support, particularly during the last couple of days of mum’s life when the staff were so attentive – not only to mum’s needs but ours as a family – always ensuring we were kept informed and included in her care. We were remembered at meal times and had a constant supply of hot drinks, which was so thoughtful.
It was wonderful, that whilst we had been worried mum might suffer, the staff ensured she was kept comfortable through this difficult time. It has certainly made me more aware of the extra effort made to ensure that what could be a harrowing time was easier to cope with.
Thank you for looking after mum. I think she was too unwell to understand much of what was happening, but the family appreciate all that you did for her. Thank you.
Ian, Bill, Alistair and Gibsen, sons
Thank you for the care you gave my brother. Although we were only able to visit a couple of times, we saw the care he was given. My sister-in-law, sent us the newsletter so we were able to keep up with events and pictures.
We would like to thank all the staff for their support during my mother’s stay, particularly near the end of her life when we felt so welcomed and free to spend as much time as we wished with her. The staff showed compassion and patience when mum was restless, and when it was difficult to care for her. We felt so glad that she was well looked after and loved by the staff.
