Meet The Manager

Moira Taylor is Care Home Manager at Pitcairn Lodge Nursing Home.

Surrounded by beautiful woodland in a tranquil setting, our nursing home is in the heart of the rural community of Kirkton of Skene, Westhill. Our fantastic care team provides nursing care, dementia care, respite care and palliative care to our residents.

Making the most of the location, we have two gardens – one for our residents with more advanced nursing needs and one for our dementia suite. Our residents get great pleasure from relaxing in the idyllic gardens during the warmer weather. We are surrounded by trees, which are a haven for wildlife and the residents love watching the squirrels and listening to the calming birdsong.

The Importance Of Meal Times

Mealtimes are a real highlight for our residents, who love the variety of traditional Scottish fayre, from haggis, neeps and tatties and stovies to Aberdeen’s famous haddock.

Within our dementia care suite there is a private dining area, affording our residents and their loved ones the space and privacy they desire to enjoy special family gatherings in a relaxing environment. We also use this area for the ladies’ afternoon teas and the gents’ social activity sessions that we organise.

Activities Are So Important

Activities are also an important part of life in the at Pitcairn Lodge. Residents really enjoy regular visits to see pre-school children at a nearby play group in Westhill as part of ‘The Intergenerational Program’. This approach to activities is a fantastic way for residents to still feel very much a part of their local community, plus the children really enjoy coming here too.

Pitcairn Lodge also features a reminiscence lounge in the suite where we care for our residents with more advanced nursing needs. This room is filled with items of memorabilia that capture the nostalgia of years gone by.
