Our experienced and dedicated staff provide the highest standards of individual care and support to our residents.
Fidra House is managed by Hilary Forbes who has been working in the care sector for over 30 years. Hilary is a qualified registered nurse and after moving up to Scotland, played a pivotal role in improving Care Inspectorate ratings for homes. We are looking forward to seeing what new, exciting and practical developments she will bring to Fidra House.
As a nursing home, Fidra House has a particularly high level of qualified staff, with nurses on duty 24 hours a day, providing peace of mind for residents and their families. Our care staff are equally committed; together nurses and support staff form a professional, compassionate team with the ability to make life fulfilling and full of laughter.
At Fidra House we employ managerial and administrative staff as well as domestic, kitchen and ancillary staff. Hilary and other senior staff, lead a strong professional unit where every member of staff knows the name of every resident. We treat our residents with compassion, affection and above all, respect.
Expertise and continuity
Fidra House meets National Care Standards, see our inspection report and this is in many ways due to the outstanding performance of our staff. Many have worked here for a number of years, which provides essential continuity of care and contributes to the family atmosphere. The assignment of a named nurse and key worker to each resident ensures that individuals feel cared for, and we find that a single point of contact is helpful for families who want to know how their relative is faring and discuss any aspects of their care.
