Rebecca Whitehouse

General Manager

Hi, my name is Rebecca and I am General Manager at Lawton Manor. Welcome to our website!  

Thank you for taking the time to look further into what we have to offer to you or your loved one. Here is an opportunity to look at some of our staff team in the home, who all play a vital role in day-to-day life.

I have worked within the health and social care sector for over 15 years now in a variety of roles and services all over Central England.  My passion has always been older peoples care I feel that the older generation have such a wealth of life experience and knowledge they can pass onto us that means every day I learn something new in my role.   I started my career in care as a carer and have worked my way up to then work within a variety of management roles within the sector including home management / commissioning manager / regional support manager /regional manager in both residential and nursing settings.

I am passionate about making a difference to the people who live with us and feel I am in a very privileged role to be able to do this and I am also passionate about working with teams to develop and enhance their skills and knowledge to make them the best they can be.


Lawton Manor Deputy Manager Staff Cheryl Fish

Cheryl Fish

Deputy Manager & Clinical Lead

I have been a qualified RGN for 23 years. Nursing and care has always been my passion . I have worked within the NHS in the surgical and medical divisions before transferring across to the private care home sector.

My experience in care homes is as a unit / clinical lead so I have experience of managing teams .  I consider myself to have high standards when it comes to the delivery of care and I believe that all our residents deserve the highest quality care and should be treated as though they are members of our family to ensure dignity and a person centred approach is adopted. Outside of work I enjoy camping and walking in the countryside . I enjoy socialising with family and friends.

Rose Long

Home Administrator

I joined Lawton Manor over two years ago as Home Administrator and I really enjoy my role within the home.   I love the interaction with residents and team members alike and really feel part of the team in the home.   My role is to support the General Manager with the business aspect of the home and supporting residents and their families from pre admission through to moving into the home.  I get a real sense of job satisfaction from helping others and being part of a bigger team who are striving to make a difference in the lives of the residents who live with us.
