Tweedmouth House care home is a Grade II listed building situated on the South Bank of the River Tweed with glorious views over the river and the ancient town of Berwick on Tweed.
It is in this setting that we provide first class nursing and residential care tailored to suit individual needs. Whether it is short term, respite, day care or long term care, we pride ourselves in the care we deliver for our residents in a happy, safe and stimulating environment.
Tweedmouth House was established in 1987, when it opened its doors as the first privately owned home in the town.
We continue to operate under the caring supervision of Natalia Thomlinson (R.G.N.) with the support from dedicated and suitably qualified staff.
As I am sure you are already aware the spread of the corona virus is an increasing concern.Our residents are very vulnerable and indeed susceptible to becoming very ill if they come into contact with the virus. It has been confirmed by Public Health England that while healthy adults and children would be unlikely to suffer severely, those with chronic respiratory conditions or compromised immunity may suffer acutely. For this reason we are introducing additional measures to limit the possible risk of infection to our residents. We are hoping that this a is a short term measure.
These measures are as follows:
· Families and friends to visit only when necessary and we will support you to stay in touch with phone or video calls, letters or emails. We have a skype service, let us know if you wish to use it.
· Public events and external visits will be reduced to a minimum and to essential only,this will include any external contractors.
We may ask you to call us prior to your visit so we can carry out a risk assessment over the telephone.
· We may,if necessary, introduce monitoring of temperature checks to ensure that the virus is not unintentionally brought into the home.
There are residents, such as those receiving palliative care, who will not be subject to restrictions due to strong reasons for visiting .
Please keep in touch and stay safe
