Bayview

Welcome to Bayview, Methil


We are purpose built on one level and have small intimate units for twelve residents, this makes it like having an extended family. Our Care Inspectorate grades have been high 5's and we are striving to increase these. We have a wealth of outdoor space to get residents involved in things like outer patio area and vegetable patch.

We encourage positive social interaction with all our residents and ensure that their choice is what matters. We have staff members who are trained to SVQ level 2 and 3 and have extended their knowledge by attending courses in Palliative Care, Dementia Training and anything else that is offered that will enhance their understanding of our resident's illness.

We are heavily involved with the community, the nursery and school children and Adam Smith students. We are also linking with Elmwood College to improve on our sensory garden project.

Care Home Manager – Elaine Berry

As the Care Home Manager, I have worked with the organisation for over fifteen years having a break in my service to go and work in NHS for a few years to return as assistant Care Manager and working my way to Care Manager. I trained at Fife College of Nursing and Midwifery in Kirkcaldy as a Mental Health Nurse, my first post was working in an acute setting within Stratheden Hospital moving onto Abbotsford East Wemyss, before moving on to my current post.

I have gained lots of skills and experience through my career and use this to help enhance the care that myself and my staff deliver to our residents. I have also completed my SVQ 4 in Leadership and Management through West Lothian College. Within the organisation my focus group in Palliative Care and it is my job to develop awareness of Palliative care to all staff.
