Meet The Manager

Vicky Mallaburn is General Manager at Meadow Park.

I am proud to say that I have been in the care sector for many years, starting as a care assistant and developing my knowledge and skills to become a deputy manager, before taking on the role of general manager here. 

Meadow Park is very special to me,  as I have evolved and grown in the various roles, learned a lot about myself personally and I am incredibly proud of the team that works around me—we are a strong team. 

I have gained a lot of knowledge and experience about the home and I continue to develop through formal qualifications, learning new things on a daily basis.

I am very passionate about my job and strive on ensuring all of the residents are safe and happy within our home. I will continue to work hard in every aspect of my job role to improve the standards of high quality care within our home.

Vicky Mallaburn

Meadow Park is a purpose-built home offering 24-hour residential care to older people, including people living with dementia, who are supported in a specialised Memory Lane Community. We're located in Bedlington, near to both Newcastle and Morpeth and close to the coast, too. We have our own gardens, which many residents help care for.

Our approach to care is based on a right to dignity, choice and independence. Every resident has a care plan, which records needs, likes and dislikes. It forms the basis for planning mealtimes so that everyone gets what they most like to eat, for individual and group activities and for helping sustain social lives. Residents and relatives are at the centre of the care planning process, which is reviewed at least monthly, and a nominated key worker helps to ensure that residents and families have someone they know they can turn to for advice and help

Senior Carer

I have worked in the care sector for over 20 years and have been at Meadow Park since 2015. Originally, I was bank staff, but I enjoyed my job so much that I became permanent in 2016.

I am a caring and passionate lady and know a lot of people in our community, as I also used to be the ‘bingo caller’. I have many years of experience, skills and knowledge, particularly in the mental health sector.

Activities Are So Important

Activities are the cornerstone of a wholesome home experience and our Activities Coordinators are always putting their creative minds to the test by organising new and exciting social events for residents to partake in. Of course, we take into account the likes and dislikes of those we support, so if someone doesn’t feel like trying something new, there will always be something on offer to reflect their personal interests. For the people who may just prefer some peace and quiet instead, we also offer one-to-one time that can be enjoyed with a nice cup of coffee or just a simple chat – whatever they desire.
