Lisa Pearson, Manager Sandiway Manor
After the retirement of the previous Manager, the Trust is now delighted to introduce Lisa Pearson as the new Manager of Sandiway Manor. Lisa joins the Manor bringing with her a wealth of experience both in nursing and caring for the elderly since 1988.
Lisa, originally from Liverpool, qualified to study languages at Manchester University but it was during a work experience when she volunteered to work with adults with learning difficulties, she realised where her true vocation lay.
She immediately changed courses and qualified as a Registered Mental Health Nurse. She worked for many years as a Learning and Disability Nurse and then went on to manage the provision of health and welfare services with particularly emphasis on working with elderly people with dementia. She has also since completed her degree in Health and Social Work.
Lisa has a grown-up son who lives in Australia. Her interests include the theatre and live music – she loves folk music from all different cultures around the world.
Combining her lovely, approachable personality with her nursing skills and management experience, Lisa is a true asset to Sandiway Manor. She plans to make subtle changes for the better and is excited about the potential of the Home. “I have inherited a lovely team of dedicated carers and staff and look forward to working as part of that team” she says.
