Care Home Manager

Update 1st March 2018

Following the fire last year, our first priority was the safe relocation of residents to other suitable homes in the area. Once that had been completed we worked with a number of stakeholders to implement a comprehensive rebuild and refurbishment programme.

We are pleased now to be able to share the plans which are subject to planning approval which show our intention to refurbish the North Wing of Forth Bay and rebuild the South Wing.

We want to make something really positive come out of the events of last year, so we have brought forward plans to improve and expand provision at Forth Bay. Whilst the new build element is currently subject to planning, dedicated improvements are planned to include the installation of circa 29 wireless access points across Forth Bay to facilitate Wi-Fi throughout the home. Our aim is to provide Forth Bay’s staff and residents with internet access in all areas. It is also hoped that this new IT infrastructure will enable us to use the latest technology, including a new nurse call system, to further assist us in our provision of person-centred care for residents. Amongst other improvements residents will benefit from modern new servery areas, the installation of the latest assisted baths on each floor, and general upgrades to bath/wet rooms with the addition of new flooring and furnishings throughout.

Refurbishment works are about to get underway and once complete and approved by the Scottish Care Inspectorate, it is hoped that residents will move back into Forth Bay in early May 2018. For the area subject to the planning application, the South Wing, we hope residents will begin moving back during the spring of 2019.

In partnership with Architects Oliver and Robb, and Orchards for all refurbishments it is hoped we will soon be ready to begin work on the new build and will provide updates as we progress.

Throughout this time we have been immensely grateful for the many messages of support received from neighbours and well-wishers in the community, and we would like to extend our thanks again to everyone who has been so helpful.

Manager's Profile

I joined Forth Bay as a newly qualified Staff Nurse in 2001 and took on a number of senior roles, including Charge Nurse in 2003 and Deputy Manager in 2006, before eventually becoming the Home Manager.

This in-depth knowledge of the home helped me prepare for my role as Home Manager and I am working hard to ensure that those in my care continue to lead happy and fulfilling lives, whilst maintaining choice over the care and support they receive. I strive to give our residents the care and lifestyle they wish to have, and endeavour to involve them in every aspect of their care.

As well as spending time with residents and making sure that they are comfortable, safe and happy, I see it as an important part of my role to act as a mentor to my Care Team. I firmly believe that a happy, fulfilled and motivated Team will be able to deliver consistently high standards of care.

I enjoy a range of hobbies outside of work, including arts and crafts. Having lived in the region for over 30 years, I love nothing more than taking in the picturesque local scenery whilst walking my beloved dog.
