Louise Paton

Activities Coordinator

I joined the team at Ochil in January 2015 and feel very strongly that a unique approach to the needs and desire of each resident is essential. I enjoy working closely with family and friends, and more importantly, the residents themselves, from the moment they arrive at Ochil. I further encourage involvement within the community, schools, nurseries and with local artists and entertainers. I thoroughly enjoy my role at Ochil and find it very rewarding.

Fraser Stewart

Activities Coordinator

Hello, my name is Fraser. I have worked at Ochil since June 2014 in the laundry department, during which time I developed a rapport with the residents, making the transition to Activities in January 2018 very easy.  

I am very excited to be involved in the games and events that are a part of daily life at Ochil, and with my background in music, it’s my goal to introduce melodic and percussive activities into the already varied programme. I find music to be a therapeutic and universal medium that is enjoyed by all.
