Meet The Manager

Pauline Hodgson is General Manager at Lindum House.

My name is Pauline Hodgson and I have worked for Barchester Healthcare since 2010, and have been the general manager here at Lindum House since 2015.

I am an RGN and have 35 years experience of working in care homes. Over the years I have been a care home owner, home manager, operations manager, regional manager and commissioning manager. As the General Manager I am responsible for managing the quality care, the staff and the environment. We aspire to be a market leader in the area. My personal aim is to ensure all residents in my care live their lives to the full, offering them the dignity and respect they deserve.

Lindum House is a modern, purpose-built home providing personal care and 24-hour nursing support for older people, in addition to those living with disabilities and long-term conditions. Our highly skilled and attentive staff work with residents and their families to create personalised care plans tailored to the specific needs and likes of each resident. Individualised care planning provides the basis for treatment and activities at Lindum, and care plans are regularly reviewed by the care team, the resident and family, as well as visiting health professionals where helpful.

All our bedrooms have en-suite facilities and residents are encouraged to personalise their rooms with their own furniture and pictures. The home is set within extensive and tranquil grounds, and has superb internal space, providing rooms for both communal and quiet spaces.

We strive to make life at Barchester care homes as stimulating and fulfilling as possible and are committed to ensuring independence, dignity and choice in every aspect of daily life.

From carers and nurses to activities co-ordinators and chefs, our compassionate staff are all trained to use a person-centred approach and spend time getting to know every individual in order to learn what they like and what is important to them.

The care we provide is delivered in a way that promotes independence for those who live in our home. Where possible, it is important that residents are encouraged to perform daily tasks independently or with minor support. Our services are devised with individualised treatment in mind for each person, so getting to know everyone and understanding their needs is imperative to delivering bespoke, person-centred care.

The Importance Of Meal Times

Food and Nutrition at Lindum House

Our Head Chef is committed to providing a wide range of delicious home-cooked meals that reflect the individual likes, dislikes and dietary requirements of residents. Our ingredients are bought fresh, and wherever possible, sourced from local businesses. The Head Chef regularly meets with residents and families to ensure he creates a menu to please everyone. Particular favourites in the home are fish & chips on a Friday and the good old traditional Sunday roast. The menu is regularly changed to stimulate appetites, and our team recognises that many proplr have differing dietary requirements, and seeks to meet these on an individual basis; the taste and quality of the food is not compromised in any way. Our kitchen team particularly enjoy catering for special occasions, ensuring Christmas is extra memorable with those little treats we all love. A birthday never passes by without a lovely birthday cake to make the day special. Please see below for a sample of what we offer. 

Dietary requirements

For residents that have difficulties in swallowing we modify the menu of the day so that is it a soft, palatable dish. To support our chefs in producing these dishes, our hospitality and Chef Academy organises theory and practical workshops. Working in partnership with Nutricia, our practical workshops involve all chefs and deputy managers learning about dysphagia and producing these modified menus. The chefs work with the chef trainer to prepare fork mashable and thick puree meals to the correct consistency, taste and presentation. The deputy managers can then ensure all modified menus served are presented correctly for our residents.

Attracting top chefs

Our chefs are recruited on the basis of an interview with the regional hospitality support team and the manager for the home. Selection also involves a practical element where potential cooks are asked to cook for and meet a panel of people living in the home. Chefs take their job extremely seriously and our annual Chef competition sees our chefs battle it out in regional heats and then at a national final for the accolade of 'Barchester's Chef of the Year'.

Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner.

Dietary Options
Vegetarian, Vegan, Pureed, Diabetic.

Activities Are So Important

Our fantastic Activities Coordinators make sure that there is a full programme of social events to suit all interests and capabilities. They aim to not only to stimulate, but to ensure that everyone involved has lots of fun. We enjoy trips out visiting local places of interest or just to explore, which inevitably ends up with us having a lovely lunch somewhere.

There are regular concerts that we hold in the home that allows us to have a good old singalong, and our community links include the local churches, knit and natter groups and toddler groups coming in to see residents.

On a daily basis, everyone enjoys a variety of activities, including quizzes, bingo, arts and crafts, reminiscing and movement to music. We also host movie afternoons on the big screen which, of course, involves popcorn and ice cream at the interval!

Any residents who are unable to join us in the communal areas for activities have one-to-one time in their rooms, with us either reading to them, chatting or anything else they wish to do that’s within their capabilities.
