New Manager at St Margaret’s Home


The Trustees of St Margaret’s Home for the Elderly in Dundee recently appointed Elaine Kerr as Manager. Elaine was deputy manager of Redwood House, a care home for the elderly in Broughty Ferry and has recently been working with Scottish Autism in Dundee. She is a registered nurse and midwife, has lectured in Health & Social Care at Angus College and is currently completing a degree in management at Robert Gordon University Aberdeen.

St Margaret’s has a proud Scottish Episcopalian pedigree dating back to the King Street Sisterhood. The Bishop, Chancellor and Dean are Trustees together with the Diocesan Registrar and the Cathedral provides chaplaincy support.

Bishop Nigel welcomed Elaine on her first day at work. “We are delighted to recruit someone with the range of skills required to lead St Margaret’s in the next phase of its development.”

Elaine’s appointment follows the retirement in December of Lynne Roche after many successful years raising standards and ensuring that the home remained not only viable but is something rather special in Dundee. St Margaret’s consistently receives high scores from the Scottish Care Inspectorate for its staff dedication to excellence in care and attention to detail.
