Meet The Manager

Andrew Jackson is General Manager at Mo Dhachaidh Care Home.

Thank you for taking the time to look further into what Mo Dhachaidh has to offer to you or your loved one. Here is an opportunity to look at some of our staff team in the home, who all play a vital role in day-to-day life.

Prior to starting in this position, I have managed care services in Scotland, England, Jersey and Gibraltar over my two decade year long career. I have completed my SVQ4 and BA in Health Studies. In 2014, I was honoured to be awarded the Alumni of the Year for Services to Older People by the University of the Highlands and Islands.

I am kind and compassionate and I focus on providing a safe, warm and caring environment for everyone I support.  Any form of merit is a group achievement and when celebrated together creates an amazing workplace, which rubs off on everyone.

Mo Dhachaidh Care Home in Scotland is located in the beautiful rural North West Highlands in the fishing village of Ullapool.

The home is nestled in the heart of the village and also provides premises for the local GP surgery and council office.

The Importance Of Meal Times

At the heart of our meals are fresh, seasonal ingredients that are bursting with flavour. Our food is cooked to the highest standard and we take great care to cater to the dietary requirements of everyone living here at the home. Residents may even discover a new favourite food or enjoy an old favourite prepared in a new and exciting way. We actively encourage loved ones to attend our mealtimes so that they can get a taste of what we offer.

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 home is always full of life, and we can thank our wonderful Activities Coordinators for this. Dedication to creating a unique and interesting activities programme is what sets us apart from other homes. We always take into consideration that some people would prefer to pursue their own interests, which is why our team strive to incorporative activities that cater to a wide range of tastes and hobbies. Our trips out are always fun and exciting as well, and residents are guaranteed to return with stories to tell their loved ones!

In the summer months Ullapool is vibrant and residents at Mo Dhachaidh enjoy walks to the sea front, the local pipe-band playing, music events at the Macphail Centre and trips to nearby Ardmair. In the winter months, local school children visit the home where residents enjoy the variety of musical instruments and singing.  Other visitors we have to the home include live musicians, Stella ( who is a trained therapy dog)  and of course our much loved dog Treacle, who visits several times a week.
