Larkrise Care Centre provides nursing care that caters for older people with more complex healthcare needs. Our fully qualified nurses are on hand to supervise medication regimes and constantly assess and monitor all residents to ensure that care plans are up to date and in-line with immediate and long term nursing needs. Nursing support is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week and we employ additional safeguards, ensuring that our care is delivered to the highest professional standards.

Larkrise Garden

Residents can enjoy the daily social activities going on in the central communal areas with the hairdressing salon open during the week. The colourful and attractive gardens are often occupied during the summer months with residents and their visitors. 

The home also boasts a club room, a pub, a library, a shop, a garden room, a reminiscence lounge and a beach room which are all used by residents and their families as places of both relaxation and activity.

The home's Head Chef is passionate about great food which is reflected in the exciting menus he and his team put together.

Larkrise Garden

Each private bedroom is a resident's personal haven and there are cosy living areas in each of the households, along with kitchenettes and dining rooms. For those who join us for respite care, all of the facilities remain available including individual en-suite bedrooms, our delicious home cooked meals and daily activities.

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 visitors 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 Larkrise Care Centre. 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.

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.

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

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

During this time, Lyndsay achieved NVQ levels 2, 3, 4 and 5 alongside becoming an NVQ assessor and achieving awards in business administration.

When choosing her own career path Lyndsay realised she wanted to keep making people happy and having a positive impact on their lives. 

Lyndsay joined The Orders of St John Care Trust in 2016 and is always rewarded by seeing the smiles of residents at Larkrise.

She loves the fact that her role is ever evolving and that there is always room to adapt and improve working practices.

In her spare time, Lyndsay loves nothing more than having fun with her husband and daughter; whether that is doing art in the park, swimming, bowling or taking long walks in the country with their dog.
