Balhousie Care Group has appointed Angela Riley as manager of Balhousie Ruthven Towers care home in Auchterarder.
Angela is returning to Ruthven Towers, having been Deputy Manager at the care home until late 2017. From Glasgow, Angela has worked in the care industry for many years, predominately as a support worker and then service manager working closely with adults with learning disabilities. After a short career break, Angela is taking her first manager position in a care home environment.
Angela’s appointment follows an exciting period for the Perthshire care home, affectionately referred to as a ‘Care Hotel’ by residents and their families, which recently achieved Grade 6 ratings from the Care Inspectorate, the highest gradings in the industry, for ‘Care and Support’ and ‘Management and Leadership’. Since re-joining Ruthven Towers, Angela has been re-connecting with residents, their families and staff and overseeing a programme to develop team leadership roles within the home. Angela said:
“I am so excited to have returned to Balhousie Ruthven Towers, this time to manage the care home. There is an incredible team of people here who are passionate about providing the very best of care and it is wonderful to have the opportunity to lead such an enthusiastic and talented group. The residents and their families have given me a lovely warm welcome too so I already feel like I have settled in. Jozi Stables, Ruthven Towers’ previous manager, did an amazing job here and I hope to continue many of the great initiatives she introduced, from developing intergenerational projects in the local community to building on the outstanding Care Inspectorate gradings.”
Louise Barnett, Operations Director at Balhousie Care Group, added:
“We are delighted to have Angela heading up the team at Balhousie Ruthven Towers care home. Angela’s brings a wealth of experience to the role from her time working in various sectors of the care industry and we know her passion for providing high quality care will make her an inspirational manager.”
