Tayside View

Welcome to Tayside View, Newburgh


The clue is in the name, wonderful location and un-interrupted views of the River Tay from many of the bedrooms and all dining rooms. A wonderful setting to spend some respite care time by the water. We have 2 beautiful suites available for those who would enjoy a larger room to relax in or continue some hobbies. These suites come with a large flat screen TV/DVD combo.

All bedrooms within the home are larger than normal and have en-suite wet floor shower and toilet. Residents are encouraged to personalise their rooms with pictures, ornaments and small items of furniture.

We have many local residents who have been part of the community and we aim to maintain that link with residents visiting the town on a regular basis and visitors from the town are made most welcome at the home. We are re-establishing links with the Institute and would hope to attend lunch clubs there, and to invite the club to visit the home for lunch on a regular basis.

Raasay Unit is now registered for Adults under 65 years. This unit has a small fenced garden suitable for developing by residents including a vegetable plot. It is hoped that the local school children will be involved with this taking the home out into the community and helping the children in their education.

Gillian Mckendrick
Care Home Manager – Gillian McKendrick

I am a registered General Nurse of over 23 years experience. I trained at Dundee College of Nursing and Midwifery.
I worked for 14 years at Royal Victoria Hospital, Dundee attaining the post of Senior Charge Nurse with experience in continuing care of frail elderly and young disabled care.
I have 8 years' experience of managing care homes having worked with Southern Cross Healthcare and Four Seasons Healthcare in locations across Tayside, Fife and Edinburgh prior to joining Abbotsford Care. I particularly enjoy working in the dementia care environments.

I have experience of managing change and service development to maximise service potential and recognise the value that good communication systems, team work and your investment in people can have in creating a quality service.
I take an active role in the evaluation of training needs and delivery of training programmes. I believe I am a supportive and nurturing manager working in partnership to support staff to maximise their potential.

I was born in St Andrews and brought up in the village of Guardbridge, Fife. I am a qualified Reflexologist but only practice as a hobby with family and close friends now. In my spare time I am a civilian instructor with the Air Training Corp at 1232 City of Dundee Squadron Air Cadets.
