Meet The Manager

Sam Towse is Home Manager at The Lawns Residential Care Home.

A real home has as much personality as the people who live there. That’s why we’ve made The Lawns a place you’d be proud of and happy to live in – just as you would your own home. 

Situated in a peaceful residential area near Oadby in Leicestershire, The Lawns Care Home is a modern, spacious home with great access to local amenities.

We offer brighterkind care – a person-centred approach that is delivered through quality care, recreation and activities, and food and dining.

Autumna has invited care providers to evidence the infection control measures they are carrying out, above and beyond those laid out by the government, in order to keep residents, staff and visitors safe.

Connectivity for resident testing, monitoring & communications

Infection control and the safety of both residents and staff often requires quarantine measures and the isolation of care home residents. To test, monitor and allow residents to communicate with relatives, the prevalence of room-level connectivity within the home is becoming increasingly relevant.

Our Building and Facilities

There are two communal lounges on each floor, for the residents to use at their leisure.

Whether you’re entertaining your family and friends, spending time with other residents or taking part in activities, our living rooms are ideal. It’s always up to you whether you want to get involved with activities – you’re more than welcome to sit back, relax and enjoy the atmosphere.

The Lawns have a lovely, accessible garden, where we hold many activities and events in the summer. 

Residents can safely and easily use the garden areas on their own, whether it’s to take a walk or enjoy the wildlife, and we often have afternoon tea outside when the weather is fine.

Description

We have 41 bedrooms set across two floors. All the rooms are en-suite, but for residents who find bathing difficult there are also bath/shower rooms within the home where full assistance can be provided. 

All our rooms are furnished to the highest specifications with your comfort in mind, and each room has individual décor. Your bedroom furniture consists of: an appropriate bed suitable to your needs, wardrobe, three drawer chest, bedside table with lockable drawer, over-bed table, armchair and other furniture suitable to the size of the room. 

We understand that moving into The Lawns will be a considerable transition, but one we try to make feel as easy as possible. Your room is your own personal space, which is why we encourage you to personalise it if you like, by hanging your favourite pictures or bringing small pieces of furniture.

Description

We’re a diverse group, from different backgrounds and with different roles, but we all have something fundamental in common – every single one of us is passionate about care.

It’s almost like a sixth sense: people who are always on hand to help, but with enough empathy to know when to leave you be; people who don’t have favourites, and who are always busy creating the little moments of kindness that make a real difference to life here.

As well as our team of carers, district nurses and GPs visit the home regularly and are on call to provide services, should they be needed at any time. We also have a hairdresser and chiropodist who provide their services for residents at the home. And everyone gets stuck in together – whether to serve breakfast or perform at our music nights.

The Importance Of Meal Times

At The Lawns, we love our food. We firmly believe that when you eat well, you live well too. This is a core part of our brighterkind philosophy of care, centring on good nutrition and the importance of mealtimes as a social occasion.

Each day our chef prepares restaurant-style meals combining variety with a balanced diet and an emphasis on locally sourced ingredients. And we can cater to any dietary or health requirements, however complex.

Our silver service dining room is situated on the ground floor – it’s a space that always becomes a hub of conversation and laughter, and which give even our more frail residents a chance to come together and socialise. Whether it’s tea and cakes in the garden or a roast each Sunday, we encourage our residents to make the most of living in a friendly environment. There will be plenty of people to meet, and a lot of stories to share.

Of course, when, where and who you eat with is entirely up to you. Friends and family can join you as often as you’d like (at a small charge), and our extras menu gives you the option to order snacks at any time of the day.

Breakfast, Dinner, Lunch.

Dietary Options

Activities Are So Important

A willingness to get involved and try new things is something we see time and again with our Magic Moments activities programme. We have a specific recreation and activities coordinator who oversees everything, but all our staff regularly brainstorm new ideas, too. And our residents vote on their suggestions at our monthly activity meetings, so we can be sure everyone’s looking forward to something, every day.

Activities vary each week: from crossword sessions and arts and crafts to visits from exotic animals and music and movement. And everything’s flexible. If it’s sunny we try and get outside, so everyone can appreciate the best of the day.

Technology has opened up the world for us here; keeping our residents connected and stimulated. We have an iPad for residents to use in the home, and our recreation and activities staff are using it more and more with residents. We also have a games console which is popular when younger relatives come to visit.

We’ve built excellent links to the community, allowing residents to continue their lives outside the home with ease. A number of residents regularly visit their hairdresser and the local shops independently, but we also have our own minibus for group trips out.

Every brighterkind home now has a Magic Moments Club which provides a vast range of activities and fun things to do that are open to all of our residents:
