The Team

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

Our manager

Fidra House is currently being managed by one of our senior and expertly experienced managers, Lynn Russell who is also the group nursing manager for the whole Randolph Hill Group. Lynn is working here at Fidra House on secondment and is supported by a strong team of staff at the home. Lynn brings over 15 years experience with her and we are looking forward to seeing what new, exciting and practical developments she can bring to Fidra House.

 

 

Our team

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. Lynn, one of our senior members of staff leads 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.

What our residents and their families say

  • 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

  • Thank you so much for all of the kindness and care you showed my mum. You were a blessing to her and me, and it was good to have her nearer.

    Shiona, daughter

  • There is always a nice atmosphere in the home and we know Dad was very happy. You have given us some lovely memories, of happy times we shared with Dad – the garden party and the street party being two of them.

    We would especially like to thank the lovely staff in Craig Suite, who looked after Dad at all times with good humour, kindness, respect and obvious affection. Dad was certainly very fond of them all too. We would like to mention every one of them because each one contributed their own special talent to his care, especially in his final days, and made sure that he died peacefully and comfortably.

    We are also grateful for the support which we received during this difficult time.

    Mary and Anne, daughters

  • Thank you for the sensitive way you looked after mum. Your kind care and friendship gave her the security to feel safe and comfortable in her last days. Also, thanks for looking after us when we visited from Cheshire, and in the difficult time after she died.

    Stewart and Janice, daughter and son-in-law

  • How very grateful we are to you for looking after our dear mother, so caringly over the last three years of her life. It was a joy to see her so very happy and secure in your company. In her time with you she became free from the woes that had previously beset her during her failing years.

    You do the most important of jobs, balancing professionalism with compassion. Your warm and respectful regard for those in your care does you great credit.

    Mary, daughter

  • I could not have wished for mum to spend her last weeks of life in safer, friendlier hands. She was just beginning to settle well and liked the staff immensely – she was just too ill to fully appreciate all you had to offer. The speed of her death took us a little by surprise.

    Thank you once again for the care and kindness shown to her. I would have no hesitation in recommending Fidra House to anyone.

    Sue, daughter
