The compassion and commitment of the staff are what makes Strathview and outstanding care home. Having had previous experience of this when they nursed my Aunt, it made the difficult time of making the decision to move mum into care so much easier. As I said to my Brother I would be distressed at the thought of mum going into care but going into to Strathview has a much more reassuring feeling ! on my last visit mum looked so happy and well. Her clothes had been chosed with care and I know the staff do everything they can to ensure her dignity is maintained. There was a happy and relaxed feel and family are warmly included on their visits. I can't recommend Strathview highly enough. Thank You.

My Mother chose this care home to live close to me and my wife as surviving family. The fact that this was her choice, based on a short term visit, has contributed to this being a very positive move. She is able to enjoy and fully access all opportunities while not yet having physical or mental needs.

Mother has been resident for over a year now, the staff being caring and helpful in settling mum into the community of the home, surprised at how well mum is doing in a complete and happy unit, staff going that little bit further to make sure all resident`s are looked after and entertained. I found it more like a family (extended of course). Welcomed at every visit with a smile. I would recommend this home to others.

We are so pleased with the level of care and support my mother in law has received since living at Strathveiw, the staff are warm and friendly and very professional. The care home manager is approachable and always willing to answer any queries we may have. As my mother in law was very low when she arrived it's now great to see her back to her happy bubbly self again. There is always someone there for her to talk to and regular entertainment and activities to keep her busy. Cannot fault Strathview in any department and would highly recommend to anyone looking for a caring, friendly and homely atmosphere for their loved ones.

Joined: 2014

Description:

As Manager of Strathview, Kellymarie leads her professional staff team in delivering the highest level of care and support for up to 24 residents.

Having qualified as a Registered Mental Health Nurse in 2003, Kellymarie spent three years working for the NHS before joining Caring Homes and working her way up to her current role of Home Manager.

This nursing experience has equipped Kellymarie well for her role at Strathview, where she works hard to ensure that those in her care lead happy and fulfilling lives, whilst maintaining choice over the care and support they receive.

‘I love nothing more than finding out from our residents, staff and relatives what I can do to make their time here better or more settled.’

Kellymarie notes her greatest professional achievement as enabling a range of adults with learning disabilities to take holidays across the UK and Europe. Away from work, she likes to relax by spending time with her two children.
