Meet the Claremont Parkway Care Home team

From nurses and carers to chefs and housekeepers, staff in our home are here to deliver high quality care and services to those we support. Check below to meet some of the friendly faces you are likely to see when visiting our home:

Elizabeth Gallacher

General Manager

Hi, my name is Elizabeth, and I am the General Manager here at Claremont Parkway. I have been the Manager since November 2016. Welcome to our website!

I am originally from Scotland and completed nurse training at Glasgow Royal Infirmary, spending my first years in Trauma receiving and A&E.

I worked with the NHS covering a number of areas and specialisms, gaining a wide range of knowledge and experience in the social care sector.

As the manager, I am supported by a number of Heads of Department, who are all very experienced and competent in their areas.

The management team are readily accessible to families and residents, also offering 2 evenings when we are available until 19.30, if families prefer an evening appointment.

We are very fortunate at Claremont Parkway to have an amazing team dedicated to the delivery of the highest standards of care and support for the people who live in the home and their familied—a team of which I am exceedingly proud.

I live about 20 minutes from the home with my husband and family. I am a proud grandmother to one beautiful, talented and sometimes cheeky young lady.

Emma McMillan

Deputy Manager

I am Emma, the deputy manager at Claremont Parkway. I commenced my employment at Claremont Parkway in February 2012 as a part time care assistant. I live a 5 minute drive away with my husband and 2 children.

Taking the opportunities for training that the company gave me I have been promoted into more senior positions over the years and last April was offered the opportunity to become the deputy manager.

I commenced my level 4 in management studies 2 years ago and last year was award by Qube learning the recognition as ‘Outstanding Achiever of the Year 2019’

We have a fantastic team here at Claremont Parkway whose aim is to provide the best person centred care for the people living in the home.  At the entrance to our home we have a plaque donated by a previous resident which states ‘This home runs on Love, Laughter, Tea and Biscuits’ this is very true it means we support the relatives and family members as we support our residents.

The challenges I have faced and the experience and knowledge I have achieved has been remarkable. I am very proud to work at Claremont and with the amazing team we have. I like nothing more than seeing the younger members of the team progress and grow during their time at the home.
