Hi, my name is Wendy, and I am the general manager here at Mo Dhachaidh. Welcome to our website!
I am originally from England, and moved with my family to Scotland in 2006. I started my career in the healthcare sector at age 18 and worked as a carer in a nursing home. Throughout my nurse training I regularly worked in this sector and, as a qualified nurse, often supported care homes in their provision of care.
I qualified as a nurse in 1996 and worked in emergency mental health team throughout the first 10 years of my nursing career. In that time, I developed a collaborative leadership style, and later on worked as a team leader for a specialist crisis intervention team in Southport.
The most rewarding part of my job is the relationships I have developed with residents, their family members and the staff who help support the people who live here. I am delighted that, through our provision of person-centred care, we have developed a homely atmosphere and a place people like to live in.
I have been working for Barchester since 2000. I deal with all aspects of the administration of 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!
We all know that keeping active is important I have worked with Barchester since 2007. We have created a wonderful culture within the home and we work together to give residents the best possible experience. We are here to ensure that residents enjoy an environment that is both stimulating and socially active. We ensure the team knows each residents' preferences, so that we can deliver a person-centered program of events and activities.
Essential to our homely feel is the strong relationships of trust we build with residents and their families and friends. The home also has its very own minibus for our numerous outings for coffee and shopping, which residents love.
I joined Mo Dhachaidh as Maintenance Manager in 2017. Maintenance is paramount when it comes to our residents, relatives and colleagues, and my role is to keep the home environment up to the highest standards possible, ultimately creating a safe and warm place for our residents to live and my colleagues to work. I also manage and deal with contractors, keeping records up-to-date for our audits.

I enjoy working with the housekeeping team. I like talking to residents and making sure their rooms are clean and tidy. I want to help residents remain as independent as possible. I work hard to ensure that the home maintains Barchester's high standards and that they work to create a relaxed, personal atmosphere for residents, relatives and staff.
I joined Barchester Healthcare in 2009 as a carer. I thoroughly enjoy looking after the Residents and spending time chatting to them and doing daily activities.
I continue to develop my skills to support our Residents on a day-to-day basis, I enjoy my job and enjoy any training that helps with my continued development that enhances the delivery of great Quality of Care to my Residents within the Home. I also head the health and safety committee here at Mo Dhachaidh I enjoy this role.
