Elaine Onyiuke has been appointed manager of Balhousie Care Group’s Moyness care home in Broughty Ferry, Dundee.
Elaine, who joins Balhousie from a care home manager role in Fife, boasts three decades of experience in care homes and social care. As well as caring for the elderly, she has worked in child protection, for central government and for Dundee Families Project, established to help families at risk of homelessness due to antisocial behaviour.
“Balhousie is at the forefront of personalised, bespoke care,” Elaine said.
“We know there isn’t a one-size-fits- all approach and I’m excited to continue to take that philosophy forward. I’m also looking to bring in more dementia-friendly areas in the home, as well as garden-related activities that will encourage residents to spend more time outside in our beautiful gardens.”
Elaine heads up 38 staff at Balhousie Moyness. The 29-room care home is set in landscaped lawns and a walled garden, which includes a summer house.
