Mo Dhachaidh Care Home in Ullapool

Mo Dhachaidh Care Home in Scotland is located in the beautiful rural North West Highlands in the fishing village of Ullapool. The village itself has a host of independent shops and restaurants offering local produce and places to eat. The home is nestled in the heart of the village and also provides premises for the local GP surgery and council office.  

In the summer months Ullapool is vibrant and residents at Mo Dhachaidh enjoy walks to the sea front, the local pipe-band playing, music events at the Macphail Centre and trips to nearby Ardmair. In the winter months, local school children visit the home where residents enjoy the variety of musical instruments and singing.  Other visitors we have to the home include live musicians, Stella ( who is a trained therapy dog)  and of course our much loved dog Treacle, who visits several times a week.

Mo Dhachaidh offers high quality elderly care for up to 21 frail older people, including 24-hour nursing care, residential care and dementia. We are also able to offer short break and respite stays. Our dedicated and skilled team of qualified nurses and trained carers will be able to offer a care package to suit each individual resident to enable them to continue to have choice and freedom in a safe and comfortable environment. Mo Dhachaidh staff and residents ensure families and friends get a warm welcome and feel involved in the home and the care delivered to their friend or family member.  

We would be delighted for you to visit and see for yourself the services that Mo Dhachaidh can provide.

Types of care

The greatest attribute of our small care team is that they really listen to residents and their families, who are best placed to voice how they wish to be supported. These views are then used to create a person-centred care plan, which is delivered by experienced carers and nurses, who are available 24 hours a day. With this person-centred approach, we are able to support older people with a variety of needs, including physical disabilities, dementia and life limiting conditions. Our focus is around the well-being of each resident and supporting their family members; we are able to do this alongside the GPs, chiropodist, occupational therapist, health visitor and social work team, all of whom are situated within the same building as the home. We strive to also meet residents' social and cultural needs and we actively encourage local talent to visit the home regularly, which includes a therapy dog, a 'gentle' exercise guru, an accordionist and a regular church service. We embrace our highland culture, with music and traditional Scottish foods and the occasional 'wee dram'. The home has received consistently 'good' ratings from the Care Inspectorate and the inspection report reflects our aim and hard work to ensure that residents at Mo Dhachaidh feel included in the local community.

Our Team

Anne Napier

General Manager

Hello and welcome, my name is Anne Napier and I am the General Manager here at Mo Dhachaidh.

I was born and brought up in Ullapool and I am delighted to return to my home village after 20 years living and working in Glasgow.  My initial first years in Glasgow were spent gaining my qualifications and working with children and young people who were at risk from harm.   Following that,  I worked  alongside individuals living with mental health difficulties and dementia, as the manager of a care home.  I then gravitated towards Health and Social Care training while achieving my Diploma in Teaching and Further Education. Latterly, I was teaching and assessing within a Glasgow College which I enjoyed very much.

 With a yearning to return home to Ullapool, I was delighted to be offered a chance to join the team at Mo Dhachaidh in July 2014.  My role, first and foremost is to ensure that we listen to and act upon the views and needs of residents and their families, ensuring we deliver a high standard of person centred care.  Our standards of care are reflected in our Care Inspection Report which is available on our website.

I feel very privileged to be able to support older people within my own community.    I have known many residents for most of my life, some taught me in school or were the aunties or uncle’s of my friends.  It is a unique and humbling experience  to  be able to have a positive impact on their lives, the way they did mine.

Everyone is welcome at Mo Dhachaidh, so please do not hesitate to visit us at anytime.
