Life at Murdoch House Care Home
Cheese and wine tasting.
Cheers to National Cheese Day!
A heart-warming reunion.
"The staff are so lovely at Murdoch House. Mum has been here for 4 years now and they all go over and above their call to help make her comfortable."
"hey have shown so much compassion, empathy and love to her and keeping in touch with us, especially with the COVID situation, on how she was coping with the changes. I think if ever I was in need of care in the future I could do not better than moving to Murdoch House."
" I cannot fault the care and attention she has received; all the staff are so kind, dedicated and patient, and nothing is too much trouble."

Care Home ManagerView bio
Care Home Manager
James found his true vocation at an early age and has over 30 years’ experience in the care sector. He has worked in many roles including being part of a rehabilitation team that specialised in maximising people’s independence to prolong the time they were able to remain in their own homes. He joined Murdoch House in 2018.
Why did you decide to join Four Seasons Health Care?
I like the company values which I see the whole team living every day. We treat others as we want to be treated; with courtesy and dignity and always go the extra mile to make our residents feel special.
What do you enjoy most about your job?
I love spending time talking with our residents and helping in any way I can to enrich their lives. I enjoy supporting my team to develop their own skills and it’s great to be part of such a caring ‘family’ team.
What are your favourite hobbies and pastimes?
When I'm not at work I love to watch my daughter play football and I’m a big fan of snowboarding. I also like fishing: something I have enjoyed for even longer than caring!
Are there any highlights in your career you are particularly proud of?
Highlights for me are not so much around my own personal achievement’s as they are seeing my residents and team flourish. I am very proud of team members I have helped to progress their own careers and I am very proud of the level of care my team provide to our wonderful residents.
What do you feel is your biggest achievement outside of your career?
When I was 12 I completed a 2-mile swim.... a long way for a skinny young boy!
What are your qualifications or experience?
I have worked in many areas of the Health and Social Care sector including Social Services, elderly residential and nursing care and dementia care.
What top tips would you give someone when looking for the right care home?
Don’t feel you need to make an appointment to view a home, you can just turn up. Does the home have a nice family atmosphere and are you made to feel welcome? Does the manager or deputy manager come over to talk to you? Prepare a list of questions before you go.
