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.

Wendy Carruthers

Senior General Manager

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

Upon leaving school, I started work as a receptionist in a local hotel, and, during my time there, I was fortunate to receive training from a fantastic manager and role model, which enabled me to achieve a management position in several hotels locally and in the highlands. I then ran my own hotel for several years before starting a family.

I joined Lochduhar (another Barchester care home) in 1994 as an Administrator. After the first few years, I was offered the chance to take on extra responsibility and became a Regional Adminstrator in Scotland, thereafter returning to Lochduhar full-time, and was promoted to Deputy Manager, Acting General Manager and then General Manager in 2008.

During that time, I have gained my Management qualification & NVQ Level 4 in Health & Social Studies.

I enjoy working with the elderly and also the day-to-day diversity of my role. I believe in team work and providing high quality to those we support, creating and promoting a happy living and working environment.
