Description

At Worthington Lake, we believe in a personal approach to care. That extends from our bespoke care programmes to the way our staff form bonds with residents. Our house assistants work with a number of residents each day, providing all the care and assistance they need. That includes medication, physical support, domestic duties and arranging their activities.

Naturally, our staff are central to this approach – from our dedicated management team to our highly skilled care staff. They make sure our values of inclusion and compassion are maintained throughout the home, alongside the highest standards of care.
