Sarah Thomson

General Manager

Hi, my name is Sarah and I am the General Manager here at Archview Lodge. Welcome to our website!

Here you will have the opportunity to look further into what Archview Lodge can offer you and your loved one.  You will also be able to familiarise yourself with the team who all assist in delivering quality person centred care on a daily basis.

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.

Kaysha Coulbourne

Deputy Home Manager

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 the Deputy Home Manager after a period leading the ground floor unit and I strive to inspire others to become positive leaders who deliver a high standard of care to residents.
