Wendy McGowan

Senior 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.
