A warm welcome to our home

  • Residential Care
  • Respite Care
  • Day Care

The specialist home environment has been designed to enhance the quality of life for people in their later years and incorporates features to promote reminiscence as therapy.

With a mixture of cosy, quiet lounges and a larger main communal space used for events and parties, the home caters for all preferences. For those who would like a little more privacy, we have a family room and a summer house that both offer a peaceful oasis for visiting family and friends.

Lake House Bedroom

Residents can participate in the daily social activities and the home's hairdressing salon and shop is also open during the week. The popular cinema/entertainment room is used for film screenings and also provides a pleasant atmosphere in which to catch up with favourite programmes.

While also being part of the community at the home, residents at Lake House are also encouraged to remain connected with their local community through monthly coffee mornings and regular seasonal events as well as varied trips out and about.

Meet the team

The talented chef and kitchen team prepare tasty, home-cooked meals on site daily from our own kitchens. We source quality produce for our excellent breakfast, lunch and dinner menus. All-day dining is available for lighter meals and snacks and all dishes are carefully balanced to get the best nutritional value and cater for individual dietary requirements and preferences.

Seasonal produce is chosen whenever possible, and of course, relatives and friends are always welcome to join us. The menus change daily and the kettle is always on. Our chef bakes every day so there is always a fresh cake for residents and families to enjoy.

Each of the households has their own small kitchen dining room where residents can take their meals if they wish. Residents are also encouraged to help prepare their own food and to make snacks whenever they choose.

Whether it’s wet or dry outside, we at OSJCT feel that activities are essential in providing the best caring environment to live in.

Hobbies don’t simply stop when living with us at Lake House. We have a dedicated Activities Co-ordinator who works closely with our residents to create a programme of fulfilling activities and events, tailored around each resident’s requests, hobbies and interests. The programme of events and activities provide a source of fun and laughter, to help each resident live their life to the full and make new friendships.

We are also fortunate to have the support of many volunteers of all ages from the local community, strengthening our links to this thriving market town. Here is a sample of activities on offer:

  • Trips to garden centres, cafés, pubs, sporting events, National Trust parks, wildlife parks, aquariums and museums.
  • Visit from Pets as Therapy Dogs
  • Exercise and wellness activities, for example Seated Yoga, Zumba

With so many well-being activities for body and mind on offer, we also recognise that everyone needs some personal space for relaxation and mindfulness for personal reflection. The cosy lounges offer an opportunity for some quiet time or to host family and friends.

And that’s not all:

We’ve had silent discos, hoe downs, Chinese banquets, Oscar parties and so much more.

Many of the activities feature Reminiscence Therapy to aid those living with Dementia to remember events, people and places using sight, touch, taste, smell and sound.

Located within a vibrant community, there's never a dull moment. We run regular activities for all to join in: 

  • Coffee mornings
  • Care Home Open Day
  • Summer and Autumn fetes
  • Christmas parties

Meet the team

Home Manager

Alex joined The Orders of St John Care Trust in 2018 on the Trust’s trainee manager programme and is now Home Manager of Lake House Care Home in Adderbury. Alex began her career in care working for a domiciliary care provider and achieved levels two and five NVQs in Health and Social Care and Adult Health and Social Care Leadership and Management.

Alex found the trainee manager post an extremely beneficial way to gain experience and support from her colleagues in the Trust as she learned more about the role. She found her past experience of domiciliary care gave her an awareness of what it means to work in someone’s home and to be courteous of their space and surroundings: an ethos that she ensures is applied to the care residents receive at Lake House.

Being fully immersed in the day-to-day running of the home, Alex’s busy schedule can be different every day. She enjoys the diversity of the role and values moments with residents. Alex enjoys the challenge of heading up a team of colleagues and takes great pride in the care they provide together at Lake House.

Alex is sometimes joined in her office by willing residents offering to help with paperwork and is often found at the heart of an activity such as learning the waltz for a birthday tea dance or serving bacon rolls to emergency service personnel at a ‘Blue Light’ coffee morning.

In her spare time, Alex ensures family time is kept a priority by organising monthly ‘Sunday Fundays’ where she brings four generations of her family together for days out with their dogs to different local attractions.

Admin Assistant

Sarah is Lake House’s Admin Assistant and will be the first to offer a very warm welcome to all visitors. She joined Lake House in 2015 and brought with her many years’ experience of working in care and nursing. Along with nursing qualifications, Sarah holds an NVQ Level 4 (Management) and Certificate in Health and Social Services Management.

Sarah enjoys the varied and busy nature of her role; whether she is organising staff rotas, reviewing residents’ financial accounts or meeting a new resident and their family, Sarah is often the go-to person for information in the home and she is always willing to assist where she can.

Sarah feels privileged to work in the residents’ home and is dedicated to fulfilling residents’ wishes, whether that involves popping to the shop for them or something as simple as making them a cup of tea. She even donned an Easter bunny onesie and hopped around the home for their Easter party. For someone who, by her own admission, “doesn’t do fancy dress”, this speaks volumes about the lengths that Sarah will go to for the home!

Activities Coordinator

Teresa joined OSJCT in 2019 as one of Lake House’s Day Centre carers and has many years’ experience working in the care industry. 

Teresa always looks forward to coming to work and her organised nature means that she and her colleagues are able to provide Day Centre visitors with a calm and relaxed atmosphere. She usually starts off the day by enjoying a cup of tea with visitors and discussing the activities that are lined up. The activities are often based on sensory memories, giving visitors the opportunity to reminiscence and be creative. Teresa then joins visitors as they enjoy a delicious home-cooked lunch.

Teresa loves to be able to bring happiness to people and is always ready to find the fun in all situations. Part of the role she considers vital is the ability to multitask and to be adaptable because every day is so different. Teresa feels strongly that everyone should consider older generations’ happiness to be as important as their own and hopes that she is afforded the same consideration when she reaches that age.

When she is not at work Teresa enjoys spending time with her family, walking the dog and hosting dinner parties to entertain friends. Teresa is also a keen fundraiser who has raised over £300 for cancer charities.

Kitchen Assistant

Dao has always loved cooking but was new to professional catering when she joined the Lake House team in 2018, having never worked in a kitchen before. She is now hoping to complete an NVQ 2 in Hospitality. 

Dao’s role involves assisting the chef to prepare meals, cleaning down the kitchen, and making sandwiches and cakes. Dao says learning to bake has taken practice, but this is something she now does every day, and she loves decorating the cakes she has made. 

Dao was pleased to be able to prepare a massaman curry to an authentic Thai recipe for residents to try as part of the home’s Meal of The Week initiative, which uses food to celebrate the diversity of the care team at the home.

When she is not at work, Dao loves going for long walks with her family, learning how to cook new dishes and dancing with her headphones in!
