Meet The Manager

Linda Atkinson is The General Manager at Leycester House.


I trained as a nurse 35 years ago, and have enjoyed working in many different areas including a surgical unit, theatre nurse and Accident & Emergency.

I have been involved in care of the elderly for many years and specialised in palliative care.I then moved into Care Home Management 5 years ago. I strive to work alongside our fantastic team to ensure our residents receive the highest standard of care and compassion at all times. Family and friend involvement is so important, and we welcome them to visit their loved ones and enjoy the warm and welcoming atmosphere of the home.

I love my job and am so proud to be part of this lovely home.

    Deputy Manager

    Having worked in care for around two decades now, I’m lucky enough to have experienced working in a residential home for young people, along with working in mental health, nursing care and residential. I was the coordinator for a large domiciliary care company in Merseyside, which came with its challenges but was incredibly rewarding.

    It was summer 2016 when everything changed, as that’s when Leycester House opened its doors, and I have been here since day one. I absolutely love it here – I have enjoyed watching the team grow and seeing how proud they are of the work they do and the high-quality care that they give. Leycester House is a very welcoming place; our residents receive exceptional care and their friends and family are welcomed with open arms and cake! I have never worked anywhere like it and it’s a privilege being part of this team.

    The Importance Of Meal Times

    Food should be enjoyed however you want to. We have thought long and hard about what our residents like to eat and how they like meals to be served. We found that food and the social aspect surrounding it is something that most people hold dear; it evokes memories of different eras in one’s life, various people, and celebration. We think that in itself is something worth savouring.

    We have created lovely welcoming spaces within Leycester House for meals and snacks - variety is the order of the day. There is the main bar and bistro, thoughtfully divided up into areas where people can enjoy a meal together, and places where couples, individuals and small groups can easily congregate to chat and relax over coffee and biscuits.

    The jewel in the crown for the foodies among you will be the fine dining room. Our residents are welcome to invite their families into the home for dinner, a special birthday, or just because they feel like it.

    That's what sets this care home apart from the others – attention to the real desires of the individual, not just words. When we say that we want our residents to treat it as their home, we mean it. Having space to invite your friends round in turn makes visiting hours longer, more relaxed, more enjoyable.

    Activities Are So Important

    Who doesn't love a great night out? Or a grand night in. At Leycester House you will never be left wondering what to do. Of course if you'd like your peace and quiet then that is your wont and your wishes are always respected, but on the nights you fancy putting on your glad rags, you can rest assured that the variety of fun on offer at Leycester House will never disappoint.

    From singers & performers to roulette tables and wine tastings – our events programme is only limited by our combined imagination. There are activities for everyone, all week, whether you love painting, or reminiscing, or just walking around the gardens admiring the planting, there will always be some sort of structured activity for you to join in as frequently as you wish.

    The specific nature and timing of activities offered are decided by our residents and we will always do our best to facilitate their choice. 

    By living at Leycester House there is never the need to be lonely. Friendships and interaction are at the heart of everything we do. That said, we understand that people will always want time to themselves and at this care home it's very easy to find. With more communal and private space than most other homes, it's easy to find your new favourite spot to watch the birds in the garden, listen to the test match, or simply catch up on the papers. The difference is that when you're done reflecting, your social network of friends, carers and entertainers is just around the corner.
