We at Etive House Care Home understand the impact the COVID-19 pandemic has had on everyone’s lives, but we are excited to begin the process of returning to normalcy.

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.

Incredible Teams That Put Resident Safety First

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.

Safety Measures

The health, safety, and well-being of our residents and employees will continue to be a major priority for us. We’ve taken a variety of safeguards at our residences since the outbreak of COVID-19 to ensure that our residents may continue to live their lives as they like with minimal inconvenience. We were able to limit COVID-19 transmission in our home by making simple changes to our everyday operations.

Our caring staff at Etive House Care Home will go above and beyond to ensure our residents’ general well-being, from following regulatory standards to assisting residents and their loved ones at difficult times. To allow residents to continue with their hobbies, our Activity Coordinators have developed the highest standard of infection prevention throughout the home, especially considering solo and group activities.

Implemented Safety Measures:

Our staff at Etive House Care Home has worked carefully to ensure that our residents and visitors are as safe as possible from COVID-19.

Screen Dividers

There are meeting locations outside, but there are also rooms with floor to ceiling screens and intercoms where loved ones may visit residents in a secure environment.

Social Distancing

To limit the possibility of transmission, social separation is implemented throughout our home. When possible, residents and workers shall be separated by one metre.


To ensure that any face-to-face contact does not spread the virus, clear, plastic screen barriers have been constructed all around Etive House.

Remote Visits

We can set up internet video conferencing tools for people and their family members to communicate. We’ve invested in cutting-edge technology to ensure that no moments go unnoticed for long.


We encourage families and guests to use the many sanitisation stations located throughout the facility on a frequent basis, just as much as our residents do.

Secure Premises

We will continue to follow all COVID-19 safety measures, so Etive House Care Home will remain a safe and secure environment.

Maintaining Health, Safety and Wellbeing

Our first focus will always be to keep the residents of Etive House Care Home safe and healthy. We will take all necessary efforts to reduce infection rates while maintaining a welcoming and pleasant environment at our house. During the times when visits outside the home were forbidden, our professional activities coordinators provide a range of activities to keep residents occupied and entertained.

Keeping Connected With Loved Ones

It’s never been more crucial to stay in touch with those closest to you. We believe that our residents’ general well-being depends on them feeling loved and supported by their friends and family. Many electronic devices such as tablets and ‘Alexa’ tools are available at our facility, allowing residents to communicate with their loved ones over the internet. Despite the hurdles that COVID-19 has posed, our staff works constantly to overcome them and ensure that everyone succeeds.
