It is rated ‘Very Good’ in all other categories. They said, ‘Strachan House Care Home provides excellent standards of care and support in an attractive, comfortable and safe environment,’ ; ‘Care and support was well organised, person centred with continuity provided by a team of motivated staff who knew the residents and their relatives/carers well,’ ; ‘Staff from all departments worked well together to given an excellent provision of meaningful activities, which included both group and one to one activities, and recognised the importance of physical activity. This helped to support residents to maximise their mental and physical wellbeing,’ and: ‘Management and leadership at the service were very effective.

Manager's quote

Hi, my name is Eileen, and I am the General Manager here at Strachan House. Welcome to our website!

My career has included volunteering, working with the NHS and joining private providers to support adults and older people. Have worked as a manager, senior manager, in quality assurance and clinical governance and also as a learning & development specialist (nursing). During my working career, I have been fortunate to have my work accredited by the Royal College of Nursing, National Council for Palliative Care and the Royal Pharmaceutical Society.

I love working for Barchester and leading the team at Strachan House in the care and support of residents to provide a quality service that meets their individual needs. Safe practice in line with legislative and regulatory requirements is paramount, as is making sure the care is delivered to maximise the choices and wishes of those we support.

I am most proud of my family, my career and making the right choices as a nurse, always acting in the best interests of those I am caring for; and of supporting families and friends in difficult situations when those close to them in my care are living with dementia and other serious conditions.
