Mo Dhachaidh Care Home in Scotland is located in the beautiful rural North West Highlands in the fishing village of Ullapool. The village itself has a host of independent shops and restaurants offering local produce and places to eat. The home is nestled in the heart of the village and also provides premises for the local GP surgery and council office.
In the summer months Ullapool is vibrant and residents at Mo Dhachaidh enjoy walks to the sea front, the local pipe-band playing, music events at the Macphail Centre and trips to nearby Ardmair. In the winter months, local school children visit the home where residents enjoy the variety of musical instruments and singing. Other visitors we have to the home include live musicians, Stella ( who is a trained therapy dog) and of course our much loved dog Treacle, who visits several times a week.

Mo Dhachaidh offers high quality elderly care for up to 21 frail older people, including 24-hour nursing care, residential care and dementia. We are also able to offer short break and respite stays. Our dedicated and skilled team of qualified nurses and trained carers will be able to offer a care package to suit each individual resident to enable them to continue to have choice and freedom in a safe and comfortable environment. Mo Dhachaidh staff and residents ensure families and friends get a warm welcome and feel involved in the home and the care delivered to their friend or family member.

We would be delighted for you to visit and see for yourself the services that Mo Dhachaidh can provide.

Manager's quote

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.
