The Team

Our experienced and dedicated staff provide the highest standards of individual care and support to our residents.

Our manager

Heather has many years experience of providing care for older people and leads an excellent team of registered nurses, carers and support staff.

Our team

As a nursing home, Muirfield 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 Muirfield we employ registered nurses and care workers along with managerial and administrative staff, domestic, kitchen and ancillary staff. Together we form a strong professional unit where we treat our residents with kindness, affection and above all, respect.

Expertise and continuity

Muirfield 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 for residents 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.

What our residents and their families say

  • 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

  • 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.

    Georgina, sister

  • 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.

    Betty’s family

  • 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.

    Morag, daughter

  • Thank you for the excellent care given to my auntie. I got to visit her often at the home, and she had settled in so well. I was glad she was so near me, so I could return her past kindness to me – she was like a second mother to me.
