Hi, my name is Farai, and I am the Acting General Manager here at Lochduhar. Welcome to our website!
Thank you for taking the time to look further into what Lochduhar has 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 am responsible for running this beautiful, purpose-built home and my passion is to provide an outstanding service for those that we support in a warm and pleasant environment. We look forward to you visiting us.
I am the administrator here at Lochduhar. I deal with all aspects of the administration in the home to ensure it runs smoothly, from invoicing, ordering, recruitment, setting up contracts, to manning reception; there's never a dull day! I consider myself to be extremely privileged to work with such wonderful people, full of humour with wonderful stories to tell. I know it’s a cliché, but we are like one big happy family. I love being here!
I have worked at Lochduhar for over 15 years, firstly as a Care Assistant on our Memory Lane Community, which I enjoyed for 6 years. I took on the role of Activities Coordinator in 2006 and thoroughly enjoy this position.
Hi, my name is Heather Johnstone, and I have worked at Lochduhar since 2000. Lochduhar is not only my work place, but it’s also like a second home to me, as it is a warm and friendly environment. We are all here for the residents and it makes my day to see them smiling and having fun.
Maricel has worked at Lochduhar since 2004 and was originally employed as a Nurse. Maricel was promoted to a Senior Nurse in 2016 and now oversees our ground floor unit.
Evelyn has worked at Lochduhar since 2007, originally as an Assistant Cook before being promoted to Head Chef in 2011. Prior to working at Lochduhar, she worked for the NHS catering department.
Out PAT dog, Jacko, visits the home every other Wednesday with his owner, Aileen. Jacko visits residents at Lochduhar, who are really fond of dogs. Jacko loves being made a fuss of and even enjoys going to the rooms of the less mobile residents.
