My name is May McCondichie, and I am the Senior General Manager at Archview Lodge. Welcome to our website!
I started my career at Archview in 1999 in the role of head of unit, before being promoted to deputy manager, then general manager in 2009.
I love working for Barchester Healthcare, and I am very proud of being able to provide high quality care for the residents living in Archview Lodge, along with a dedicated and caring team of staff, who always strive to make life at our home as happy and as homely as possible.

Hi, my name is Kasia and I have been an Admin Assistant at Archview Lodge since 2014. I am originally from Poland, but have lived in Scotland since 2006. I find Scotland such a friendly and welcoming country to live in.
I was inspired to become a nurse by my mother, who was also a nurse at Archview Lodge many years ago.
I successfully joined Archview as a Nurse with the support of the staff. I can truly say that I was mentored well by the Senior Nurse and have developed many skills attributed to high quality care. I am now proud to be leading the ground floor unit and I strive to inspire others to become positive leaders who deliver a high standard of care to residents.

I then moved into the kitchen to become the 3rd chef and worked my way up to Head Chef! I love my job and love the satisfaction of preparing delicious, home-cooked meals using seasonal produce.
I have been at Archview Lodge since May 2018. I have been in the property maintenance industry for over 25 years. My role here is to ensure that the property and grounds are maintained to a high standard. An equally important part of my role is the very good relationship I have with the residents, relatives and the staff.
