The magnificent Lyndhurst has been owned since 1991 by the current proprietor, presenting one of the initial residential homes within the group. The care home originally had 16 beds, which was then transformed in 1992 to 22 beds and the first lift was installed. Further developments took place in 2007, where the building next door was purchased and altogether the care home became a 29 bedded residence. Following on, a purpose built development was completed in 2010, where the structure of the care home was re designed to 44 beds, and a second lift was installed, more ensuite rooms were added and a stimulating garden setting created. The remarkable dedication, perserverance, determination and incredible ability to envisage future planning to grow this industry should be noted.
Lyndhurst provides 24 hour care to residents with a moderate to high diagnosis of Dementia alongside other health conditions. Residents are assisted with activites of daily living such as personal care, laundry, medication, and as appropriate assisting with eating and drinking, continence problems, organising external health professional visits from Doctors, Nurses, Physiotherapists etc. The whole team are there to support residents’ independence and choice, as well as encourage a comfortable and fulfilled life.
