Whilst our staff are carefully chosen for their caring capabilities, experience and qualifications, they are equally selected on the basis of their empathy, understanding and ability to bring out the best in those in their care. With an emphasis on physical and mental stimulation, it is the remit of our staff to encourage residents to use their motor and mental skills at every opportunity – through conversation, external stimuli and the development of close and rewarding personal relationships.
One of our principal values is to treat each of our valued residents as an individual, responding to their unique needs and ensuring that their level of care matches their precise personal requirements. This is particularly important for those experiencing dementia and the physical effects of increasing age – and at L & M Healthcare, we pride ourselves on creating individual care programmes designed to develop, sustain and, wherever possible, improve both mental and motor skills.
Working together with you and your loved one, we can develop an individual care programme based on the information you provide us. From this, we can custom-design a care programme that can involve:
To encourage active minds, there are stimulus materials everywhere – photos, objects d’art, games, plus carefully chosen period music playing on the state of the art sound system; on the dementia suites outside every guest’s room is a ‘Memory Box’, in which residents can place important photos, cards and memorabilia. Staff, visitors and residents can dip into the box and use the material to encourage conversation and reminiscence.
There are also ‘Sensory Hubs’ at the heart of each home – a broad central corridor on each floor, where residents are encouraged to visit regularly to meet and chat with fellow guests, staff and visitors.
Dedicated occupational therapists are assigned to every suite to encourage residents to be active and involved in the home community.

“Yes this home is like a 5* Hotel and the care is also 5*, my mum was in here for respite and the care she received was wonderful. “
“This is the most beautiful home with the most caring staff, and excellent management. This should be the blue print for all care homes and I feel so lucky to have found it.”
It’s good really, like a first class hotel for me, that’s my thoughts.
It’s very impressive, obviously finished to a very high standard, very roomy, yes am mightily impressed.
I’m just blown away to be honest with you. I’ve never seen a place like it in my life. It looks good from the outside even. When you come inside it’s like walking in heaven and that’s where I’ll be when I come here.
Yes. I could live here quite happily. Yes. I’m 76 years old and my husband is 82. We don’t live very far away so it would be like a real home from home.
There’s space for people to sit around and have their own time. Absolutely stunning.
“The care my father has received has been second to none. I cannot thank you enough for the work you do. You are a shining example of how a nursing home should be run.”
“I would recommend this care home to anybody. The facilities are great, the staff are excellent, efficient and very caring – deserves 1st prize in the awards.”
Well. It’s just beautiful. Absolutely beautiful. Whoever’s built it has done a damn good job!
Lovely, just like a five star hotel.
Must be one of the nicest places I’ve ever seen!
“ The facilities, food, activities, cleanliness etc are all as you would expect from a first class care home. We are really impressed and we would have no hesitation in recommending you.”
I’d be happy to put either of my parents in here.
Yes, the place is absolutely gorgeous, absolutely fabulous and very tastefully done.
“This is an outstanding care home with friendly and approachable staff. On a first impression it reminds me of a five star hotel. My grandma settled in from day one!”
