Morag Lindsay

Care Home Manager

I was brought up in Thurso, arriving at the age of 3 when my father took up a post in 1963.  Just turning 18 I battled through the snow blizzards in Feb 1978 to train as a nurse at Vale of Leven Hosiptal in the outskirts of Glasgow.

Becoming a registered General Nurse I gained valuable experience in medical, surgical and gynecology before finishing my special 'niche' in care of the elderly working in both Helensburgh and Dumbarton Care Homes. 

15 years on and four children later I decided to return to the place I belonged and that was Thurso to up a post at Pentland View as Deputy Matron 22 years ago and for the past 9 years I have been General Manager. In 2006 I gained a diploma in Palliative Care. I have seen and been part of a transformation of care that has ensured that the care we at Pentland View and Barchester provide is leading 'person centered care.'  This is achieved by developing a dedicated team of over 60 staff who work here as they really want to make a difference to peoples lives and are passionate about giving the care they would expect to their own loved ones.

Nancy Davies

Head of Unit

I started at Pentland View in November 2008 and I have been nursing for over 40 years, general and psychiatric nursing. Latterly I working in the Highland Hospice for 7 years which I loved.
I love working at Pentland View as each day can bring different challenges. The residents are llike an extended family and I hope I support their familie in this way. As my own father suffers from dementia, I can totally empathise with families with the difficulties that going into car brings. It is important to me that my residents are treated with respect and dignity at all times.
I also enjoy the palliative stage of care with the challenges it can bring for both the resident and their family.
I came to Thurso as a new chapter in my life and have since re-married. I have six grandchildren both here and Inverness.
I love gardening and have tried to make a garden at Pentland View.

Phyllis Currie

Head of Dementia Unit

Brought up in Cathiness, I moved to Glasgow in 1990 to embark on my nurse training. I qualified in 1993 as a RGN.
Having met and married a Glasgow boy, I remained living and working in the city for the next 8 years. During this time I gained experience in the hospital and community.
After the birth of my twin boys, and missing the countryside, as a family we made the move back to Cathiness.
Still wanting to 'keep my hand in', I took up a part time post at Pentland View in Thurso. To my surprise, Barchester nurtured and encouraged me to develop a career.
They the potential in me and I was supported to become involved in staff training and induction.
One key element of my training role was to deliver dementia training.
Through this time I discovered that I was developing a real passion for working with people living with dementia. I September 2015 I took up a post in the Memory Lane unit.
I have learnt and truly believe that, with the right support, people can live well with dementia. I am privileged to work alongside and lead a team of nurses and carers who understand this.
As a community, together we laugh, together we cry, we share the good and the bad times. Dementia or no dementia, we are human.
