Amanda Porcel

Regional Manager - Western Region

Amanda brings 40 years of working experience in social care to her role as Regional Manager for the Western Region of Allegra Care. Amanda was Registered manager at both Olive Tree House and Rose Garden since they opened over 8 years ago. Very much a people person, she’s dedicated to helping others and passionate about elderly care and the difference it can make to people’s quality of life. From training and mentoring colleagues to building strong working relationships with healthcare professionals in the local community, it’s a positive outlook that also benefits her working relationships.
Catherine Crawshaw

Catherine Crawshaw

Regional Resident Liaison Manager – Western Region

Catherine has worked in sales and marketing her whole career, after graduating with a degree in Textile Management she worked in Corporate Workwear for many years. Catherine’s first role in the care sector was working with a disability charity that ran nursing homes and enablement projects for young adults. While her two children were younger, she joined her husband in his estate agency, but was delighted to return to the care sector in 2020 and now cannot imagine doing anything else.

Catherine’s role with Allegra is to support residents and their families as they explore care options. Working with the teams in the individual homes she ensures that during every stage from initial enquiry through to moving in with us every question is answered, and we offer the reassurance needed for the next chapter in our resident’s life. It is important for our residents to remain part of the community in which will have lived for years, often all their lives, so the other part of this role is connecting with local community groups, charities and organisations. Catherine has said that working for Allegra with their groundbreaking household model means we are offering a home with compassion and care whilst ensuring residents are retaining their independence and quality of life.

Out of work Catherine enjoys baking, gardening and walking the family Labrador. The children are older now, but still keep her busy!

The knowledge and professionalism of the deputy manager, nurses and doctors are outstanding. I cannot thank them enough for their holistic care and willingness toinvolve the family in Mum's care at every stage. Mum is very poorly now, but I am safe in the knowledge that she is well cared for at this very difficult time for the family. Thank you all so much. I will remember this exceptional care always and it means so much to me.
