We support residents at Cathkin House to keep busy and enjoy rewarding lives. Some residents make cakes and biscuits for everyone to enjoy, while others help to keep our gardens looking good. We're often popping out to a local pub for lunch, or for an outing to a local park or one of the museums in Glasgow. We also have great links with the local community, including schools.

Nisha Sujeewon

Home Manager

Nisha Sujeewon

I joined Cathkin House in February 2021 and I was encouraged to join Care UK as I had heard about the diversity of the company - the caring practice and the values of the company says everything.

I have been working in the care industry for 20 years now. I came to Scotland as a general registered nurse from Mauritius and with the support of my peers I worked my way up the career ladder.

One of my biggest career highlights has been the awards I’ve won in my previous care homes. I’m proud to have won awards within the company, a Scottish care award as well as a community award for the care delivery in my home and engagement with the community.

As a home manager, you need to be a good listener, patient and compassionate towards both your residents and staff. I believe you lead by example rather than being the boss.

I am looking forward to promoting excellence in dementia in the home. I am also focusing on developing the person-centred care approach in the home, enablement, and implementing more meaningful activities.

When I’m not working I like to spend time as a family. We go for walks, cycling and hiking a lot, especially during summertime. Most importantly, I am a big fan of motor racing Formula 1.

John McGee
Head Chef

I joined Care UK as I was looking for a role that gave me a better work-life balance, and becoming Head Chef was a real highlight in my career.

In this role, you need to be well organised, work well under pressure, have high standards, work well with a team and have a good relationship with the residents. I love preparing nutritious meals for residents. Providing them with a balanced diet in a safe environment is the most important part of my role. I’m proud to work as part of a team that always wants to deliver a higher standard of care.

Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my family, football and fishing.

Tatoo Haloo Yajna
Dementia Care Coach

I love working at Cathkin House. I decided to join Care UK after hearing a lot of good things from a family member. I’m the home’s Dementia Care Coach and a Namaste Care Trainer, and I was proud to be nominated for the Care Newcomer award at the National Care Awards in 2023.

My job is to deliver care to a high standard and lead by example. To do this role well, you need to be passionate, patient, caring and able to work well in a team. Activities are my favourite part of the day because I have the opportunity to spend time with all the residents having fun, smiling and laughing with each other. I also enjoy providing Namaste care to those who cannot attend activities to give them a time to feel loved and pampered.

I feel proud of what I do when I bring smiles to residents’ faces and when I can comfort them and respect their choices.

When I’m not working, I enjoy attending fitness classes, listening to music and dancing and doing arts and crafts.

Jade Marshall
Head Housekeeper

I worked as a Care Assistant and Domestic before becoming Head Housekeeper. This promotion was the biggest moment of my career so far. I joined Care UK because it is a good care provider to work for.

In this role, it’s important to be happy and enjoy chatting with the residents. I love working as part of the team at Cathkin House and making sure residents and their family are happy.

I feel proud when I receive good feedback from families and residents. I believe it’s important to respect them, as well as my colleagues.

When I’m not working, I enjoy going to see family and coming into work for days out with the residents.

Octavio Hernandez Padilla

I joined the Cathkin House team in 2017. I used to be self-employed, but I wanted a maintenance job with a little more reliability. I also thought that working in a care home would be a challenge, and something a bit different.

In my role I think it’s important to respect everyone, and to be kind, as well as be prepared to turn your hand to all sorts of tasks. Every day is different here, and I love supporting the residents in any way I can. I take pride in doing a good job for each person we care for, and in supporting my colleagues whenever they need me.
