Meet The Manager

Janine Marshall is Registered Manager at Gotton Manor Care Home.

Hello, I am Janine Marshall, Home Manager of Gotton Manor Care Home.

I started my career in care over 20 years ago, working as a care assistant in a local nursing home. Over the years, I have worked in community care, nursing homes, residential homes and whilst I worked for a care agency, I done HCA shifts in hospitals and hospices.

I have put my all into working my way up the ranks and I have been working in supervisory and Deputy Managers posts over the last 10 years.

Since working with our fantastic team at Gotton Manor, I have felt nothing but welcomed and supported both in house and from the rest of the Harbour Healthcare team.

I am passionate about our residents receiving person centred care and I am very proud of our beautiful home and amazing views.

Autumna has invited care providers to evidence the infection control measures they are carrying out, above and beyond those laid out by the government, in order to keep residents, staff and visitors safe.

What we're doing to keep residents & visitors safe

We are following the advise of National and Local authorities including Public Health England and our local Infection Control and Prevention team.

All necessary protective equipment will be supplied and visitors may be asked to complete Lateral Flow tests.

Visits will be by appointment only. The Home's team will inform you about what arrangements are in place to keep you, our residents and team members as safe as possible.

Should there be positive cases of COVID in the Home, then visits will not be permitted.

Team members and residents are being tested as per the latest guidelines.

Many thanks for your patience.

Infection Control Initiatives in place
safe-tick Contact Tracing We have measures in place to identify and trace contact between people in our care setting.
safe-tick Independent Assessments We have been independently assessed in our approach to infection control.

Safe Visiting Space
safe-tick We have a safe visiting space

We have a designated room which is accessed from outside for visitors and creates a safe visiting space for all.

Connectivity for resident testing, monitoring & communications

Infection control and the safety of both residents and staff often requires quarantine measures and the isolation of care home residents. To test, monitor and allow residents to communicate with relatives, the prevalence of room-level connectivity within the home is becoming increasingly relevant.

Wireless Internet access (WiFi)

Yes, our care home has WiFi in all our resident’s rooms.

Mobile Phone Network Coverage (mobile “signal”)

Yes, our care home has mobile phone signal in all our resident’s rooms.

Telephone for external calling

The Care Organisation has not indicated availability

More details coming soon

Team Lead Care Assistant

My name is Lisa. Care work was a new career for me. I was a little nervous at first but the training has been nothing but brilliant. Really supportive management too.

Whist I've been at Harbour Health Care (Gotton manor),  I have worked my way up to one of the Team Lead Care Assistants.

The Team really pulls together to make sure residents are our main priority.

No two days are the same. The residents make every day at work worth while.

It truly is a family community.

The Importance Of Meal Times

There’s nothing quite like traditional home cooking to give everyone a lift.

We always ask residents and their families about their food preferences and dietary requirements. Our chef and catering team then work with dietitians to create meals that are nutritious and tasty, using fresh seasonal ingredients.

To add more variety, we also make a point of celebrating with special meals and events throughout the year. Residents can be served in our pleasant restaurant-style dining rooms or, if they prefer, they can take their meals in the privacy of their own rooms.


We Serve Food At
Afternoon Tea, All day snacks, Breakfast, Dinner, Lunch.

Dietary Options
Diabetic, Gluten-free, Halal, Kosher, Pureed, Vegan, Vegetarian.

Activities Are So Important

Another way we can help our residents to feel at home is for them to do familiar things. So our dedicated Activities Leaders gently encourage residents to carry on doing things they enjoy. If someone had a hobby or pastime they did before they arrived, we’ll encourage them to continue it with us. Or perhaps they may like to learn something new.

The important thing is that we treat every resident as an individual. If they enjoy sharing time with others, either in our home or on an organised trip out, they’re most welcome. Or, if they prefer quiet time alone, we’ll respect that too.
