John Hamilton left the building for the final time as home manager of Balhousie Huntly Care Home on Friday 8th March after a lovely farewell tea party. The tea party gave residents, staff, friends & relatives a chance to say their last goodbyes and thanks to John for all he has done for them over the past 6 years.

When John announced that he would be leaving he commented, “When I took this role in August 2012 (as an 18-month appointment) I did not expect to become so attached to the people and the community.”

John also went on to say,  “The journey we have been on together is without doubt the most rewarding of my working life and one that I will remember fondly.”

All of us here at Balhousie Huntly wish John all the best in his new job. We now look forward to what the future brings for the home with new home manager Nikki Sanderson.
