Meet The Manager

Terry Blackwood is Home Manager at Mossvale Care Home.


Terry is an experienced Care Home Manager who believes passionately in providing a warm and inviting setting for residents where they receive the very best in person-centred care.

Mossvale Care Home is a newly built care facility, designed to the highest standard.  Built over two floors, the Home is spacious, bright and offers a sense of openness as residents enjoy the freedom of each.

Both floors feature 3 comfortable lounge and dining areas, each with floor to ceiling windows with attractive outlooks: perfect for enjoying the view, watching the world go by or an excellent location to meet and chat with friends and family. Our positioning means that we not only have views towards the conservation area surrounding Hogganfield Loch, but are close to bus routes, local shops and primary schools, meaning that you could be in two very different places, depending on which lounge you are seated in!
