Hi, my name is Eleanor, and I am the General Manager here at Drummond Grange. Welcome to our website!
I have been nursing since 1972, having begun my career as a Nursing Assistant in one of the largest Psychiatric Hospitals in the county. I continued to develop my career, working in various specialties in both hospital and community in NHS Lanarkshire. My last post within the NHS before taking early retirement was as a General Manger for Motherwell Locality with an area wide lead for older people with mental health problems, including dementia.
My retirement was short lived and after a brief period of rest and relaxation I joined Barchester Health Care as Deputy Manager at Alexandra Court in Glasgow, where I worked happily for two years.
I came to Drummond Grange on a temporary basis at the beginning of 2014 and found the welcome I received from residents and colleagues overwhelming, and as such was delighted to be offered the opportunity to join the team on a permanent basis.
In 2016, I won a Resident Engagement Award at the 18th National Care Awards because of the proven positive effect I have had on residents and staff whilst working at Drummond Grange.
