Jane Aitken

Senior General Manager

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.

I have worked within both the NHS and private sectors as a staff nurse, charge nurse and deputy manager. I moved to Strachan house in January 2017 as the Unit Nurse Manager and joined Canmore Lodge in July 2018 as the Deputy Manager. My passion is dementia care and the Memory Lane unit within the home is an excellent environment to enhance the quality of care for those we support.
