Types of care
The care we provide is delivered in a way that promotes independence for those who live in our home. Where possible, it is important that residents are encouraged to perform daily tasks independently or with minor support. Our services are devised with individualised treatment in mind for each person, so getting to know everyone and understanding their needs is imperative to delivering bespoke, person-centred care.Read more

Hi, my name is Michele, and I am the Deputy Manager acting as General Manager here at Lochduhar. Welcome to our website!
I qualified as a registered mental healthcare nurse in 1989 in Ipswich, Suffolk. Michele’s spouse was in the Royal Air Force, and he was posted to West Germany, where they lived for 4 years. During her time in West German, Michele worked for SSAFA (Soldier, Sailor & Airmen and Families Association), supporting families when their husbands were posted further afield.
On her return to Dumfries in 1994, Michele began working at Lochduhar as a bank nurse and then moved to work as contracted nurse specialising in dementia care at another care home before being promoted to Deputy Manager, and eventually moving to Lochduhar in 2018.Get in touch Meet my team
