A caring home in a quiet neighbourhood.

We offer a warm welcome to anyone needing nursing, residential or dementia care. With an emphasis on individual choice, it’s a lovely place to come for a short stay or to begin life’s next chapter. With the help of family and friends, we create a real sense of community for each resident to enjoy.

Our residents are very special to us.

We support residents with a wide range of care needs, personalised for each person with the close involvement of family. And there are plenty of services on offer to support each resident’s health, fitness, nutrition and appearance.

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.

Activities Are So Important

There’s no typical day at The Lindsay, but we arrange plenty to do, both here at the home as well as out and about.

We believe it’s #NeverTooLate

We help to make residents’ long-held wishes come true, or to tick something off their ‘bucket list’. We’ve helped them hold an art show, milk a cow, have a pamper day and go to the football!

Getting out and about

We like to arrange trips to wherever residents would like to go, and so we share a minibus with another Bupa home nearby for trips to the seaside, boat trips, and shopping.

Lots of special interests

With our Knit and Natter group, gardening, bowling, darts, pottery, art, and cookery, there is lots for the residents to do.

Our own library and cinema

Residents are encouraged to keep up their enjoyment of books, and a great way to have peaceful moments. Movie showings bring people together, and family and friends are always invited.

We have computers for residents and their family to use.
