Meet Our New Manager, Annette Guthrie
Last updated: 5.12am, Friday 23rd October 2020
We are delighted to introduce our new Manager, Annette Guthrie - a registered Mental Health Nurse with many years’ experience of caring for the elderly and those living with dementia.
Annette began her career in nursing as a Care Assistant 25 years ago, working with people living with dementia in a care home environment and was struck by how much she enjoyed her role. So much so, she decided to become a nurse.
Annette has worked in psychiatric wards caring for those suffering from various types of mental illness, and has also nursed in the prison service but missed working for the elderly and wanted to return to a role where she could care for them.
Currently living on the Ayrshire coast, in Stevenston, Annette is originally from Glasgow. Annette has three grown up children and two dogs who she loves to bits. In her spare time, she enjoys listening to music, reading, going walks with her dogs and travelling.
Annette explains more: “I am passionate about the elderly and the abundance of life skills, not to mention stories they have from the experiences they have lived through. I am person-focused and strive to help my residents achieve the best outcomes and quality of life.
“Hutton Park is a lovely, homely place that offers a warm and friendly environment with amazing staff who care deeply about each resident. Their focus is making each day count by encouraging lots of chat, smiles and making them feel a real sense of belonging.
“There is no such thing as a typical day at Hutton Park. Each day brings its own challenges and things to look forward to, especially in these difficult times as we live through this global pandemic.
“Hutton Park has lots to offer someone seeking supported living and comes highly recommended from those already experiencing the fabulous care and attention they receive at the home.
I’m always happy to chat with residents, family members or potential new residents, so please get in touch on 01475 673 184 or email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions or queries.”
