Denise Scott has been appointed manager at Meallmore’s Culduthel Care Home in Inverness.
Bringing over 30 years in nursing care, Denise will focus on developing staff skills and knowledge and ensuring residents have fulfilled lives while receiving care that is tailored to their individual needs.
Denise will also drive forward the care home’s community outreach programme and has already engaged with the local schools as well as local community groups to organise outings.
“I’m very excited to have taken on this role with Meallmore as I feel that the company values its employees and invests heavily in their career progression,” Denise said.
“Everyone has been hugely supportive already. I believe I bring a wealth of experience, as well as kindness and compassion, and I will be focusing on residents’ wellbeing as a priority. It’s hugely important that those in our care are given the support that they need to live as independently as possible.
“I look forward to developing relationships with residents and their families and empowering my team members to be the best they can be.”
Having moved to the Highlands at the age of 19 to study nursing and midwifery, Denise became passionate about working with and caring for the elderly and went on to work as a staff nurse and then in management roles across both the NHS and the private sector.
