Mission of Kindness, Compassion, and Care
Three Tree Vista is a family owned and operated adult family home. We’re lifelong residents in the area; we’ve worked as homebuilders, healthcare, and hospitality providers; we proudly serve and participate in our community.
In our culture, we honor our parents and grandparents; we celebrate their lives and cherish their wisdom and stories; we tend to their needs with the utmost attention and love. When your loved ones move into Three Tree Vista – they become honorary members of our family, as do you.
The Three Tree Vista staff is led by our family matriarch, Dorothy Gutierrez; she is a certified adult family home care provider who has been working at nearby homes in the area since 2009. Three Tree Vista was a dream of hers long before her career in senior care; she planned the whole operation out while raising three generations of family in West Seattle.
Dorothy’s son, Gary, is a prominent local homebuilder. Gary kept his eyes out for the perfect property, and when his eyes landed on this palatial home overlooking a tree-lined Burien hillside, he knew he found the ideal setting for the home that became Three Tree Vista.
We are dedicated to delivering first-class, quality service to our residents. All team members are well trained in First Aid, CPR, and basic elder care.
Our team provides the personal service, companionship, and attention to detail that our residents and their families deserve. We have staff on duty 24/7 to ensure resident needs are always attended to, including bathroom assistance, bathing and grooming assistance, and help getting from room to room as needed.
Dorothy Gutierrez, Owner
A Seattle area resident for more than 45 years, my own experience helping my mother through Dementia and Alzheimer’s has shaped my life’s work. After raising three children, I have spent the last 14 years working in Senior Care, helping memory care residents with their daily needs. Now as the Owner of Three Tree Vista, I’m honored to help more people through their journey.
I’m looking forward to providing your loved ones with the utmost care and attention as well as great meals, conversation, and fun.
During my free time, I enjoy walks in our lovely neighborhood and learning new recipes on the Food Channel.
Gary Gutierrez, Operations Manager
Born in Manila and raised in West Seattle, education and hard work were instilled in me by my parents, Nido and Dorothy. Even from a young age, I always had a summer job to help me build a strong work ethic and begin to develop relationships.
With a degree in Accounting and Finance from WSU, I initially became a CPA and Auditor. After a few years of doing that, I went into the home remodel industry where I have been designing and building homes for over 27 years. I love my job and am grateful for my success in this business has enabled me to build this beautiful adult family home while helping my clients achieve their remodeling dreams.
Three Tree Vista has been a labor of love for several years as my wife, Heather, and I worked on the various facets of this purpose-built home while raising two teenage boys. I believe my passion for building strong personal and business relationships has been the key to our success.
I’m looking forward to helping to make sure that our new adult family home will be the best possible home for our residents and their families.
Heather Gutierrez, Community Liaison
After caring for both of my grandparents at a young age, l gained the knowledge and importance of cherishing and respecting the elders in my life and in our community. I have always enjoyed spending time and listening to their stories and asking questions about their life experiences. I have learned so much from just listening. Our elders are an important part of our community as well as our past and present. I have always known that I wanted to help other families care for their loved ones.
For the past 5 years, 3 Tree Vista has been our family’s dream. We envisioned a home with a beautiful view where families could gather and spend time with their loved ones celebrating them. We truly wanted to create a place they could call home. Every touch at Three Tree is a thoughtful one, and we are excited to share this bright, cheerful and comfortable place with our residents and their families.
I am thrilled to provide a concierge-style experience for our residents and ensure their time at Three Tree is outstanding.
