Winchester House Care Home in Rochester
Winchester House is a perfect home from home, located in the beautiful countryside of Tonbridge and Malling, close to the historic city of Rochester and the Medway Towns. Formerly a rectory constructed in 1875, Winchester House has been tastefully restored to provide elegant surroundings across 5 separate units. We provide 24-hour nursing care alongside specialist care for people with dementia in our two dedicated Memory Lane Communities. These communities are designed to be dementia friendly and promote well-being for individuals as well as providing stimulating activity areas.
We're proud of our socially active community which revolves around superb facilities alongside first-rate care. Our team of activities coordinators offer a wide range of activities, which includes singing sessions, cake making, film sessions, games, quizzes and regular outings for all of our residents
We would be delighted to show you around so that you can see what we have to offer for yourself – please feel free to drop in or to call us if you would like advice.

Hi, my name is Liza, and I am the General Manager here at Winchester House. Welcome to our website!
I have a degree in Nursing and have been a registered nurse for about 26 years now. I also have diploma in Healthcare Leadership and Management level 5.
I came over here in 2000 from the Philippines as an overseas nurse. I have variety of experience in supporting the young physically disabled/neuro-disability, palliative care, elderly care and dementia care. I have worked on different levels in care and management, including healthcare assistant, nurse trainee, staff nurse, unit manager and deputy manager, until I became the General Manager of Winchester House in January 2020.
I have excellent leadership skills and I am very passionate in what I do. I am highly motivated and challenges interest me. I am an open, honest and approachable person.
Now that I am at Winchester House, I will lead the team with integrity and I will motivate and empower people to embrace the change with me in achieving success, and will continue to look for ways to improve the life of our residents. I will always go the extra mile to ensure that residents get the best quality care we can offer.Get in touch Meet my team
