Meet the Manager

Dawn McCormick

Dawn McCormick, Care Home Manager

A very warm welcome to Collisdene Care Centre in the historic market town of Strathaven. Having worked with the team here for the last few years I am delighted to have taken on the role of Care Centre Manager.
After completing my training with the NHS and 14 years as a Registered Nurse with the service, I moved into the care sector and have enjoyed every minute. The variety of each day and the wonderful daily interactions with our residents and dedicated team are a joy.
Having worked in the care sector for many years, I have gained considerable experience in supporting those with learning disabilities and behaviours that could be perceived as challenging.
Collisdene Care Centre consists of three different houses, helping us to support a wide range of client needs in individual settings.
Castle View is the largest house at Collisdene, catering for those with learning disabilities who have complex nursing needs.
Park View is designed to support our more able residents with learning disability needs. The smaller of our three houses, it is perfect for those who may benefit from a quieter, more relaxed environment.
While Avon specifically supports male clients with learning disabilities.
With a highly trained and dedicated team, our focus is on supporting all of our residents to achieve the maximum independent lifestyle possible.
For me, the thing that stands out about Collisdene is the centre’s affinity with the local community and vice-versa. Under normal circumstances, the Collisdene minibus is in and out all the time taking residents bowling, to the cinema, for meals and to local groups. We would also get involved in local events and with local charities in the town regularly.
During the coronavirus pandemic, the team here have worked hard to innovate using technology to maintain our community links and residents’ active lifestyles virtually instead.
We pride ourselves on providing a real family environment in all of our houses, with some members of our team and residents having been a part of the Collisdene family for over 20 years. Our staff are proactive, engage with our residents wonderfully and find working here incredibly rewarding, as do I!
I would love to help you with your search for care and answer any questions you may have. Please contact me on 01357 684956 for an informal chat.
