May McCondichie

General Manager

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.

I started my nurse training at the age of 18 in the Southern General Hospital in Glasgow. I now live in the Scottish Borders with my husband. I have 3 grown up children.

Please feel free to call me; I would be happy to show anyone around Archview Lodge.

Sarah Thompson

Deputy Manager

Hi, my name is Sarah and I am the Deputy Manager here at Archview Lodge.

I have over 30 years nursing experience; I trained and worked in London teaching hospitals before living abroad and then moving back to Scotland to be nearer to family.

I love being a nurse and particularly enjoy looking after older adults, who I feel can offer us new insights into life. I find this area of nursing very rewarding and an it’s privilege to work with the team at Archview.

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.
