Meet the Manager

Laura McNicol

Care Home Manager

I began my journey in the field of care, specifically mental health, at the young age of 16, working as a domestic in a psychiatric ward. It was during this time that I realised my passion for mental health care and decided to pursue it as a career. After finishing school, I enrolled at the University of the West of Scotland in 2010 and graduated with a BSc in Mental Health Nursing.

My professional career began in a secure forensic setting, where I spent five enriching years. In April 2015, I joined Meallmore (The Oaks) as a Staff Nurse, and in 2017, I was promoted to Deputy Manager. This role allowed me to hone my management skills and prepared me for my next challenge at Alderwood House, which I embraced in March 2024.

Working for Meallmore has been incredibly fulfilling. I have always felt supported in my career development and have cherished the strong sense of team spirit and collaboration in developing our specialist services. I take pride in knowing that my contributions are valued, and I am confident that this support will continue as I take on my new role as Manager at Alderwood House.
