Arlene Campbell

General Manager

Hi, my name is Arlene, and I am the General Manager here at Fairview House. Welcome to our website!

I have 20 years of nursing experience. I trained in Glasgow as an RGN and continued my studies at night school for 2 years to achieve a Bachelor of Science in Health Studies. I also worked as a Sister for the NHS in an intensive care unit. 

I have been managing nursing homes since 2007, ranging over the years from a 98 bedded home In New Zealand and a 64 bedded home in Argyll to a 54 bedded home in Aberdeenshire and a 30 bedded home in Edinburgh.

I pride myself in helping staff to deliver positive outcomes for residents by ensuring they have the skills to work autonomously, which will ensure that all staff are proud to work at Fairview House.

Helen Howie

Deputy Manager

I have 14 years of experience working in care homes and with elderly people and I have worked at Fairview for 1 year.

I enjoy my role as I support the General Manager and have a responsibility to make changes that will benefit the residents and my colleagues. I have a passion for the care of older people and I endeavour to provide a homely atmosphere for residents and their families, whilst also promoting high standards of evidence-based clinical care.

We have a fantastic team here at Fairview who are all committed to delivering the best possible care to those we support.
