The health and wellbeing of our residents is of the utmost importance to us at Rubislaw Park. Keeping you safe is a huge responsibility, and you can rest assured that we take it very seriously.
We fully understand that the outbreak of COVID-19 has had a difficult and overwhelming impact on the lives of everyone. We recognise just how important it is to keep our residents safe and secure and throughout the COVID-19 pandemic we have followed guidance from the Governments and local agencies to support the wellbeing of our residents, relatives and staff teams.
We will continue to work closely with our staff, residents and their loved ones to support their preferences and should there be any further outbreaks at the home, we will keep you fully updated.
Exceptional Care in Challenging Times
In line with recent Scottish Government guidance effective from September 2022, care homes in Scotland no longer require face masks to be worn during visits due to high vaccination rates and other mitigations against COVID-19 in the social care sector and LFD testing is no longer necessary. Face masks will continue to be provided at the home should it be your preference to continue to wear one and staff will support the preferences of our residents who wish for our staff to wear face masks whilst providing them with care.
We would like to reassure you that we will continue to work closely with our Local Health Protection Teams and will follow their guidance should this decision change. For further information, please click here or contact the Home Manager directly.
At Rubislaw Park, the safety of our residents is our number one concern. That’s why we’ve implemented lots of new safety and protective measures within our facility, so that our residents can continue living the life they want to with minimal disruptions.
With these measures in place, we can make a real effort to reduce the rate of infection. By staying up to date with government guidelines and advice regarding social distancing regulations, the teams here are doing everything they can to ensure your loved ones remain mentally, emotionally and physically healthy.
We really value person-centred care, and believe strongly in the power of genuine human connection between our residents and our team members. Due to COVID-19, we have had to adapt our practices to ensure the ongoing safety and wellbeing of everyone in line with local and national healthcare guidelines.
However, by using extra Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), having enhanced cleaning regimes, areas for sanitisation and maintaining a safe distance, our teams have managed to continue doing what they do best; delivering unrivalled levels of care.
Our Measures Include:
At Rubislaw Park, we’ve taken extra steps to ensure that our residents and their loved ones are as protected against COVID-19 as possible.
To ensure that any face-to-face contact does not spread the virus, clear, plastic screen barriers have been constructed all around Rubislaw Park.
In line with government guidelines, social distancing is continually implemented at Rubislaw Park. All residents and staff members must remain a minimum of 2 metres from one another.
Faces masks will be worn by staff in line with government guidance and our residents and relatives preferences. Staff will continue to wear other PPE such as disposable gloves to ensure that the rate of infection is reduced at Rubislaw Park.
We can arrange for remote visits between our residents and their loved ones at Rubislaw Park. Because our internet is so fast, setting up face-to-face online meetings isn’t too difficult.
Around Rubislaw Park, there are numerous sanitisation stations and spots where our residents and guests are actively encouraged to apply our antibacterial gel.
Rubislaw Park is a very safe and secure place, meaning we take all of our protective COVID-19 measures incredibly seriously.

We aim to relieve your concerns about cleanliness and security, and we promise you that your priorities are the same as ours. At Rubislaw Park, we’ve put in place a number of safeguards to guarantee that our residents are as safe and as comfortable as possible.
There has never been a more important time to stay connected with the ones you love. During these unpredictable times, human connection and support is essential for maintaining the mental and physical wellbeing of our residents. That’s why we have plenty of online devices to encourage our residents when it comes to video calling their friends and family members. Despite the challenges we’ve faced due to COVID-19, we’re getting through it together and as a team.
