We understand that choosing the right home for a loved one can be extremely difficult.

At Lakeside we are a family owned home dedicated to provide everything to care for their particular needs as completely as possible.

We are committed to help our residents to continue to lead as active a life as possible in a warm, friendly, secure and homely atmosphere in which their care, well-being and comfort are of prime importance.

Our philosophy is that residents are unique individuals with personal needs, preferences and choices, and they have the right to expect those wishes to be complied with , as far as we possibly can.

It's the quality of care that really counts. Its our Matron, our nurses and our caring staff - their attitude, caring nature, patience, skill and experience - that gives substance to our claim of giving our residents 'Care with Dignity'.

They have the right to be cared for with dignity and respect.

The right to privacy and independence.
