Balhousie Care Group, the leading provider of quality residential care in North East Scotland, has appointed Lynn Phillips as manager of Balhousie Luncarty care home.
From Kirriemuir, Lynn started her career in the travel industry before pursuing her passion for the care profession. Having worked for Balhousie on a few different occasions over the years, Lynn gathered a wealth of experience working as a care assistant at Balhousie Lisden care home before working in the community providing home care services, then eventually coming back to Balhousie in an administrative role.
Lynn worked her way up to the deputy manager position at Balhousie Glens care home in Edzell, then subsequently took on an interim manager position there before making the leap from Angus to Perthshire to become manager at Luncarty.
Lynn joined the Perthshire-based care home at the end of last year and is currently overseeing a refurbishment programme, including redecorating the home’s public rooms and beginning the refurbishment of the home’s 29 bedrooms, all with input from the residents.
Since joining Luncarty, Lynn has been spending time getting to know the residents and staff while familiarising herself with a new care home.
Lynn said: “Building relationships with the residents, their families, staff and our professional partners has been incredibly important to me. Strong relationships and involving everyone is the key to running a good care home. Everyone has been lovely since I arrived at Luncarty and it has been wonderful seeing the home transform during its refurbishment.”
