Meet the team

Our staff are what hold the home together. Each one of these team members are dedicated to providing high quality care and services to those we support, and ensuring that residents enjoy all aspects of life at our home. See below to meet some of our friendly faces:

Ami Livesey

Acting General Manager

Hi, my name is Ami and I am the Acting General Manager here at The Manor. Welcome to our website!

I began my nursing career in 2001 after obtaining my registered nurse qualification in Greenwich, London. I chose to work in the private care sector, and after spending several years gaining experience as a trained nurse, I joined The Manor in 2006 as Deputy Manager. I became the General Manager of The Manor in April 2013, bringing with me an NVQ Level 4 in Management, as well as certificates in coaching and leadership. Eventually, I moved to a Regional Director position within Barchester and I am now back at The Manor as General Manager in an acting capacity.

Myself and the staff team will seek to ensure that each residents' care needs are met, and will also encourage and support every individual to retain as much independence as they desire through the provision of a stimulating and pleasant environment, where they are free to exercise their right of choice as to their lifestyle.

Lisa Bale

Activities Coordinator

Hi there, my name is Lisa, and I am part of the activities team here at The Manor. I have worked with Barchester for over 10 years and have previously worked as a Unit Care Coordinator before taking on my current role.

I love coming in to work each day and the variety it brings. I particularly enjoy taking residents out for the day on the minibus; most recently, we have been to the seaside and ten-pin bowling. Having fun and making residents smile makes my job worthwhile and I wouldn’t have it any other way.

My love of being with people extends into my personal life and I enjoy cooking for friends and family in between renovating my new house.

Hello, my name is Marc, and I have worked at The Manor for over five years. I started off as a Kitchen Assistant and then took an interest in the activities provided and was given the opportunity to transfer teams. I love to spend time with residents just talking and sharing stories. My top priorities are to keep them as active as possible and, most importantly, to make them smile.

Hi, my name is Pete, and I am part of the maintenance team here at The Manor. I joined the home in 2007 and have loved my time here. I am a brick layer by trade, but this environment is a very different one.

I really enjoy the interaction with residents and having banter with them all as I go about the home. I am rewarded when I make a difference to their lives, as such a little thing can make a massive difference to them. In my down time, I enjoy DIY and always have a project on the go.

Rachael Yuill

Care Practitioner

Hi, my name is Rachael, and am a Care Practitioner here at The Manor. I joined Barchester many years ago, back in 2008, when I made a career change from hairdressing. The Manor has become a big part of my life and I enjoy making a difference to the lives of those who live here.  

My love of hair and beauty crosses over into my time at The Manor and I enjoy pampering residents - when we look good, we feel good - and I love seeing their confidence grow when I’ve done their hair or make up.

Pursuing the Care Practitioner qualification was a challenge for me and I was delighted to achieve this; I really enjoy the enhanced role I now have, with every day bringing something new.
