Staff at Seaview House are celebrating after our home performed strongly in Your Care Rating 2017, a nationwide survey of care home residents, families and friends.

Situated on the outskirts of the market town of Wick on the North Coast of Scotland, Seaview House care home is well known in the area for its warm and friendly atmosphere. The home is single storey and purpose-built, with well-maintained and secure gardens to the front and rear, which boast superb views across the sea and along the coastline. All rooms have en-suite facilities.

Our home offers 24-hour nursing care and support to frail older people and to people living with dementia. We base our approach to care on maintaining dignity, independence and choice.

Our team of dedicated staff tailor their approach to care based on the individual needs of each resident. And our dedication can be seen across the board - in our care, cooking, activities, regular outings and pet therapy sessions for our residents.

We pride ourselves on our hospitality: meals are excellent. We take care to ensure that people have exactly the food and drink that they most enjoy and that their dining experience is relaxed and unhurried.

We think having a range of activities on offer is really important. Residents bake, garden and take regular trips out amongst other choices. By working with residents and relatives on personal care plans we can find out together what people most want to do and what we can do to help.

We have an active resident’s committee which ensures resident involvement in life at Seaview House

We are always happy to welcome visitors and to take calls – we will offer advice when we can.

Wendy McGowan

General Manager

Welcome to Seaview House, my name is Wendy and I am the General Manager here at Seaview House.

I have had the privilege of being the General Manager at Seaview House since 2007. I am originally from England and moved with my family to Scotland in 2006. I started my career in the healthcare sector at age 18 and worked as a carer in a nursing home, throughout my nurse training I regularly worked in this sector and as a qualified nurse often supported care homes in their provision of care.

I qualified as a nurse in 1996 and worked in emergency mental health teams throughout the first 10 years of my nursing career. In that time I developed a collaborative leadership style and latterly worked as a team leader for a specialist crisis intervention team in Southport.

The most rewarding part of my job is the relationships I have developed with residents, their family members and the staff who help support the people who live at Seaview. I am delighted that through a real sense of person centeredness we have developed a homely atmosphere and a place people like to live in.

Our 'Your Care Rating' results are testament to this as the residents year on year rate is very highly.

Our care

At Seaview we provide person-centred nursing care services for older people in need of care and support. It is important to us that our care services are delivered in a way that celebrates each person’s individuality and helps them to maintain as much independence as possible, so we tailor our services to meet the unique needs of each person providing meaningful activity each day. This could include personal one-to-one time with staff members when needed, regular visits from a chiropodist or just adhering to special dietary requirements. Our current rating of 975 out of 1000 in the national Your Care Rating survey shows just how pleased residents and loved ones are with our services.
