Meet The Manager

Anita Rowley is General Manager at Lethen Park Care Home.

I have worked in the healthcare sector for over 25 years as a registered manager, operations manager and regional manager throughout the UK, working alongside a wealth of experienced healthcare professionals. I was seconded with my role to Scotland for 2 years and liked it so much I decided to take on the role of general manager here at Lethen Park, and I am so pleased I did. I have a degree in management and  I am a member of the chartered management institute.

I love my role and what I do, and I am lucky to be supported by a fantastic team that demonstrate a nurturing, warm and compassionate approach to care.

The home's core objective is to promote a quality ethos centred around the Scottish health and social care standards.

Anita Rowley

Lethen Park is a purpose-built care home in the town of Portlethen, situated 8 miles south of the City of Aberdeen. 

At Lethen Park we offer 24-hour nursing care and support for older people, people with disabilities, people with long term conditions and people living with dementia, who are supported in our dedicated Memory Lane Community.  

The care delivered at Lethen Park is centred on personalised care planning.  An assessment is carried out prior to admission where we can establish basic needs, likes and dislikes.  Following admission this will be considerably expanded.  Our skilled staff team will develop a tailored care plan for each person, working through the plan with the resident where possible and otherwise with relatives or friends.

We would very much like you to see for yourself the high standards of care and facilities we provide so please call us and arrange a visit. We look forward to meeting you.

The Importance Of Meal Times

At the heart of our meals are fresh, seasonal ingredients that are bursting with flavour. Our food is cooked to the highest standard and we take great care to cater to the dietary requirements of everyone living here at the home. Residents may even discover a new favourite food or enjoy an old favourite prepared in a new and exciting way. We actively encourage loved ones to attend our mealtimes so that they can get a taste of what we offer.

For residents that have difficulties in swallowing we modify the menu of the day so that is it a soft, palatable dish.  To support our chefs in producing these dishes, our hospitality and Chef Academy organises theory and practical workshops.  Working in partnership with Nutricia, our practical workshops involve all chefs and deputy managers learning about dysphagia and producing these modified menus. The chefs work with the chef trainer to prepare fork mashable and thick puree meals to the correct consistency, taste and presentation.  The deputy managers can then ensure all modified menus served are presented correctly for our residents.

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.
