Meet The Manager

Bobby Dougan is Home Manager at Bothwell Castle Care Home.

Bobby has been a nurse for 35 years and has worked in care homes for 30 of those years, 29 of which have been in managerial roles, from Matron to Deputy and most recently as a Manager of a luxury care home with 81 private clients before moving to Bothwell. Bobby’s passion is elderly care and leading her team to provide the very best quality they can. When asked if she enjoys her job, Bobby answers that what she does is not a job it’s a lifestyle. Bobby is an extremely family orientated person and she likes to spend her spare time with them, her 3 little dogs who keep her fit, and also watching the opera.
