Meet The Manager

Claudia Carvell is Home Manager at The Lindsay.

“I first qualified as a nurse in 1979 and spent many years in the NHS working in a variety of fields including acute medicine and palliative care. I now have the privilege to be manager at the Lindsay care home. Our residents do not live in my place of work, I am privileged to work in their home.”

Claudia Carvell

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.

Description

When a new resident arrives they’ll be met by their key carer, who’ll give them a guided tour of their new home. They’ll also tell them about meal times, activities and introduce them to some of the other residents and members of staff.

When a new resident joins us, we make getting to know them and their relatives a top priority. This helps us to build a picture of how they’d like to be supported day-to-day, so we can create a personalised care plan.


The Importance Of Meal Times

Fresh healthy food

Good food, in pleasant surroundings, is a real priority. Our café offers fresh-baked cakes and biscuits plus speciality coffees. Appetising meals are served in our spacious restaurant, café or garden, or in the resident’s room. Our chef talks to each resident when they move in about their likes, dislikes and any special dietary needs.

Private dining areas for families

Families can spend quiet time together for special events and celebrations like birthday parties.


We Serve Food At
Breakfast, Dinner, Lunch.

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.
