Suzanne Hudson

General Manager

Hi, my name is Suzanne, and I am the General Manager here at Meadow Park. I hope you find everything you need on our website!

Since leaving school in 1984, I have worked in various settings that provided care and support to those in need, from supporting children under 18 years with physical disabilities to caring for babies when parents required respite.

I initially became a cook at a local nursing home, where I would manage the kitchen and staff, before I decided to broaden my skills and experiences and take up care support roles. I achieved all relevant training and management qualifications, including RMA Level 4, and became a Registered Manager in 2007 in a residential care setting that specialised in supporting people living with dementia.

Vicky Mallaburn

Deputy Manager

My name is Vicky and I am the Deputy Manager of Meadow Park Care Home. I help support the General Manager with the daily running of our home, particularly the clinical side.

I have worked at Meadow Park for the past since 2014 and have been with Barchester since 2010. I was initially a Bank Care Assistant and, after a lot of hard work, I eventually progressed to management level.

I have qualifications in leadership and health & social care, which allow me to bring a certain level of knowledge and expertise to the home.

Tracey Mason

Home Administrator

Hi, I have worked for Barchester Healthcare for 2 years as Administrator, I joined Woodhorn Park initially and enjoyed it but recently transferred to Meadow Park as I live in Bedlington and it saves on travelling. I have worked in Sales in a Business/Manufacturing environment for 20 years but wanted to be in a more satisfying role dealing with people direct and interacting with Staff and Clients alike allows me to do that. Helping the Residents and Families is also part of my role and I enjoy getting to know them.

Joan Crichton

Senior Carer

I have worked in the care sector since 1982 and I started working in Meadow Park in 2001 as a Kitchen Assistant. At this time, I had a son who was at school and the kitchen hours suited my home life. When my Son was older, I was asked to consider a role as Care Assistant, which I gladly took on. After some time, I was then promoted to Senior Carer, which is a role that I really enjoy.

As a Senior Carer on a busy dementia unit, I ensure that both residents and staff members' needs are met to the best of my ability. I ensure that the residents’ day-to-day care is of the highest standard, administer medication and address and support their physical and mental needs. I support colleagues by providing a listening ear and offering guidance and support.
