Meet The Manager

Nick Secker is Home Manager at Kirkley Manor.

Kirkley Manor is a magnificent home providing exceptional residential, nursing and dementia care in the heart of Lowestoft’s residential community. It is close to golden beaches and Lowestoft’s amenities. It has beautiful well-maintained gardens and a high-quality interior, yet retains a genuine feeling of homeliness, which is experienced by all who visit us.

Using our person centred approach we develop a bespoke care programme for each individual.

Every resident is supported according to his or her physical, emotional, social and spiritual needs and a tailored care programme is created for each. We have close links with the local GP practices and NHS Teams and we are proud of our award-winning way in which we support residents with a dementia.

Residents who are experiencing memory loss benefit from our enlightened approach to dementia care, which stimulates, supports and comforts in a safe and homely environment. We are committed to providing the best possible outcomes for these residents, and we achieve this through our ‘Wings’ (Welcome, Individuality, Nurturing, Guidance, Sensitivity) philosophy of care. This award-winning approach is nationally recognized and our bespoke learning programme is designed to ensure that the person with a dementia is at the heart of everything we do. Whether it’s a friendly face, a warm smile or taking time to listen, making a positive difference to someone’s day is what makes our world go round.

Activities Are So Important

As with all Kingsley homes, there are regular visits from hairdressers, chiropodists and holistic therapists. There is also an active entertainment programme for those who wish to participate, which includes a film club, yoga sessions, music afternoons, craft, trips out and visiting professional entertainers. These activities are offered on a one to one or a group basis.

We spend time with them and family members to find out about their tastes, history, hobbies and interests. We see family and friends as our partners in caring for the individual and we welcome feedback and suggestions at all times
