Lanercost House Care Home in Carlisle

Lanercost House is located on a modern residential housing estate on the outskirts of Carlisle, which means we have easy access to local amenities. Nearby, you can enjoy the Scottish Borders, historic Carlisle and the beautiful Lake District.

We can cater to all different types of care needs; we provide first-class 24-hour nursing care and support here at Lanercost, and our dedicated Carlyle Suite offers expert dementia care for adults over 50 who have challenging behaviour. All rooms have en-suite shower facilities and are wheelchair accessible. There is a sensory room and a life skills kitchen. We have secure gardens, accessible from many bedrooms and all lounges.

We have our own physiotherapists and activities coordinators, and the inspector noted ‘people were well stimulated and supported in discrete and sensitive ways by staff.'

We are always pleased to see visitors.

Our Team

The dedicated and experienced team are passionate about providing quality care to each individual living at the home.

Nigel Godman

General Manager

Hi, my name is Nigel and I am General Manager here at Lanercost. Welcome to our website!

Thank you for taking the time to look further into what we have to offer to you or your loved one. Here is an opportunity to look at some of our staff team in the home, who all play a vital role in day-to-day life.

I have been fortunate in my career to succeed in becoming a dual qualified Registered Mental and Registered General Nurse and to have worked within both Local Authority and NHS services. My background has been working in community based services as a Community Psychiatric Nurse and also a Care Manager.  It is interesting that I have now reached a period in my career that I am committed to providing high quality care within a nursing home setting in contrast to creating care packages to enable service users to remain supported outside of residential care settings.

I have become an experienced Registered Manager in social care since 2015 choosing to work in care homes that were under-performing and addressing issues directly. I am approachable and fully embrace good ideas, no matter who suggests them for the benefit of service users. Whilst I cannot promise to solve every problem that arises be assured I will listen and try my best and I look forward to welcoming you to our home.
