Karen Whyte

General Manager

Hello, my name is Karen Whyte and I am the General Manager here at Fairview House.

I have been a qualified nurse for over 15 years. I have been a Home Manager since 2007 managing several different types of services. 

My personal goal is that Fairview House is not an establishment, but a home away from home for all who visit. We are a large team at Fairview and an important part of that team are the residents and their families. I encourage sharing ideas, suggestions and concerns to make our home a happy and safe one.

Diane Cadger

Receptionist

My name is Diane and I originally started more than ten years ago at Fairview as a Laundry Assistant. I changed role after a few years to part-time evening Receptionist, as this suited my family life at the time.

I have continued to work as a part-time Receptionist, moving on to the day shift, and have increased my hours and responsibilities. I really enjoy working at Fairview; it is a friendly, welcoming place to be. My role is busy, varied and interesting. No two days are the same, which is something that I enjoy.
