Care and Facilities

Here at Lanercost House, we can offer a comfortable and safe environment in our purpose-built home. Lanercost House provides 24-hour nursing and residential care for the elderly frail. We also have a unit that is staffed by experienced and qualified people who understand the complex care needs of residents living with dementia. The Carlyle Suite is a small unit which specialises in the care of residents over 50 with challenging behaviour and dementia. We have numerous lounges and quiet spaces for residents and families to enjoy throughout the home, along with landscaped gardens on all units, a sensory room and bespoke physiotherapy for individuals who require it. We have our own hairdressing salon and enjoy the services of a hairdresser twice weekly.
