Andrew Jackson

General Manager

Hi, my name is Andrew, and I am General Manager here at Mo Dhachaidh. Welcome to our website!

Thank you for taking the time to look further into what Mo Dhachaidh 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.

Prior to starting in this position, I have managed care services in Scotland, England, Jersey and Gibraltar over my two decade year long career. I have completed my SVQ4 and BA in Health Studies. In 2014, I was honoured to be awarded the Alumni of the Year for Services to Older People by the University of the Highlands and Islands.

I am kind and compassionate and I focus on providing a safe, warm and caring environment for everyone I support.  Any form of merit is a group achievement and when celebrated together creates an amazing workplace, which rubs off on everyone.

Administrator

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!

Kirsty Urquhart

Activities Coordinator

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.
