Meet The Manager

Arlene Campbell is General Manager at Fairview House Care Home.

I have 20 years of nursing experience. I trained in Glasgow as an RGN and continued my studies at night school for 2 years to achieve a Bachelor of Science in Health Studies. I also worked as a Sister for the NHS in an intensive care unit. 

I have been managing nursing homes since 2007, ranging over the years from a 98 bedded home In New Zealand and a 64 bedded home in Argyll to a 54 bedded home in Aberdeenshire and a 30 bedded home in Edinburgh.

I pride myself in helping staff to deliver positive outcomes for residents by ensuring they have the skills to work autonomously, which will ensure that all staff are proud to work at Fairview House.

Arlene Campbell

Fairview House is a purpose-built home that provides 24-hour nursing care for older people, including those living with dementia in our dedicated Memory Lane Community. Our highly skilled and compassionate staff work hard to ensure Fairview House is not an establishment, but a home, with high quality care centred around the specific needs of each resident.

Our high standards are reflected in all aspects of the home, including our hospitality and cooking. The home also has a wonderful and varied activities programme, centred around the needs and interests of residents. We provide concerts and church services every month and have daily programmes of activities, such as bingo, crafts, a beauty group and gardening. We also frequently go to coffee mornings in our local community and have regular outings in our minibus.

Fairview House is conveniently located close to plenty of local amenities and is within each reach of the beautiful Dee and Don countryside. We believe the best way to judge a home is to visit and see how care and support is provided. So please feel free to drop in or give us a call.

The Importance Of Meal Times

Our menus are composed of only the best fresh produce and cooked to the highest quality, with aims for the natural aroma and taste to be retained as best as possible. A great deal of care is taken to accommodate all dietary requirements, and our meals are always prepared with the likes and dislikes of residents taken into consideration.

For residents that have difficulties in swallowing we modify the menu of the day so that is it a soft, palatable dish.  To support our chefs in producing these dishes, our hospitality and Chef Academy organises theory and practical workshops.  Working in partnership with Nutricia, our practical workshops involve all chefs and deputy managers learning about dysphagia and producing these modified menus. The chefs work with the chef trainer to prepare fork mashable and thick puree meals to the correct consistency, taste and presentation.  The deputy managers can then ensure all modified menus served are presented correctly for our residents.

Activities Are So Important

Our Activities Coordinators create a weekly planner that consists of a variety of activities, which caters to all residents' needs as best as possible. The most popular activities are bingo, which we host twice a week, flower arranging and weekly visits from Vinnie our pet therapy dog. Residents also enjoy minibus trips in the nicer weather and we attend a concert every month. We are also involved in the Council Well-being Team, which keeps us up-to date with upcoming events within the community and provides interesting ideas for activities we can try in the home.

Throughout the year, we host various special events, including themed open days and summer and winter fetes that people in our local communities are welcome to join us for. We also have monthly church services with Rev. Ann from Danestone Congregational Church, which is open to loved ones as well.
