Hi, my name is Jane and I am Senior General Manager here at Canmore Lodge. Welcome to our website!

Thank you for taking the time to look further into what we have to offer to you or your loved one. Here is an opportunity to look at some of our staff team in the home, who all play a vital role in day-to-day life.

I moved to the private sector from the NHS in 2006 and have worked with several leading care providers over the past decade. I now find myself as the Senior General Manager at Canmore Lodge, which has incredible internal and external environments, in addition to excellent facilities that are available to those we support.

I am devoted to making a positive difference to peoples' lives and ensuring that those we support at the home can live as comfortably as possible.

I look forward to welcoming you to our home.
