Nursing Care

Resident at Braeside House with staff drinking teaOur policy is to provide nursing care to those residents who in our judgement require it. We do not admit any resident on a residential care only basis.

Over 20% of our staff are Registered Nurses.

The care staff that work alongside our nurses are highly trained and qualified. Over 90% of them have qualifications that meet the Scottish Social Services Commission (SSSC) standards. This exceeds the SSSC recommendations, which is for 50% of care staff to have a certain level of qualification.

The services of a resident’s own General Practitioner can be retained if they are agreeable, otherwise our GP visits weekly and as required. There is also regular contact with the Princess Alexandra Eye Pavilion.

Respite care

We are only able to offer respite care on occasion when we have spaces available. Our priority is on longer term places. Please enquire if you are seeking respite care to see if we are able to accommodate it.
