Morag Francis, Head of Care for Older People

Morag Francis, Deputy Matron, Braeside HouseMorag has worked for Royal Blind care homes for 24 years. Her qualifications include an MSc and BSc in Nursing, RGN, and SVQ4 in Care Management. 

Morag started her career at Royal Blind as a staff nurse at the former Canaan Home in Morningside. She then moved to Braeside House when it was established and became Deputy Manager and then Manager of the home. 

In late 2016 she was promoted to the new position of Head of Care for Older People to oversee the development of Royal Blind's new care home, Jenny's Well.

Morag said:

"I am committed to ensuring that the care and support given to the residents is of a very high standard. Resident choice is at the centre of our philosophy. While the residents are the main focus of our care it is important to ensure the needs of relatives, friends and staff are taken into account as well. 

"The majority of my nursing experience has been with older people and I value what they have taught me over the years. I hope I have helped support our residents to continue to have a quality and purpose to their life."
