Latimer Court Care Home in Worcester

Latimer Court is a purpose-built care home specifically designed to provide high quality residential and nursing care for elderly people and individuals living with dementia. We also offer respite care and short breaks, which can now be pre-booked up to a year in advance. The home is ideally located in Worcester and is within easy reach of both local amenitiesand the surrounding countryside.

Latimer Court is designed with a warm and homely feel. Its interior design, furnishing and settings were selected specifically to enable us to provide the very best elderly care, from the sofas and chairs in the living rooms through to the spacious en-suite bedrooms and secluded gardens. The home also features a range of services and facilities, including a coffee area, hair salon and a beautifully-maintained garden. Throughout the home, there are a range of communal and dining facilities to suit people who enjoy socialising, as well as those who prefer quieter activities.

Life skills kitchens enable residents to get involved in everyday domestic activities, such as baking, setting tables and washing up. With support from our skilled and experienced team, this helps people feel settled and useful.

We are always happy to answer questions and discuss how we can best meet your care needs, so please feel free to call us or pop in!

Types of care

Latimer Court provides person-centred care in our four communities: Avalon, Grosvenor, Beaufort and Woodbury. We provide care and support for people living with dementia, and who require nursing and residential care. We understand that each resident has individual requirements that we need to tailor our care to, so our services are designed to provide the very best for each of them, based on their personal requirements, and to help them maintain as much independence as possible

Our Team

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

Lisa Bradley

General Manager

I began working as a volunteer in a residential home at the age of 14, providing refreshments to residents and their families and guests at the weekends. I was thought of as a 'natural' when working with the elderly and was soon supporting residents with their individual needs and requirements.

On leaving secondary school, I was offered a position as a care assistant and embarked upon a full time career in care at the home where I had spent my youth volunteering.

In 2003, I joined a domiciliary care service, supporting people in their homes and, at the same time, completed training as a senior care coordinator and area manager, obtaining the equivalent NVQ Level 4 qualification in Health and Social Care.

I joined Barchester Healthcare as a Deputy Manager in 2011, originally based at a sister home in Shropshire. A short while after, I moved to Field House to become the General Manager - a post which I held for nearly five years until my transfer to Latimer Court.

I feel privileged to have embarked on a career pathway that has enabled me to meet and care for residents, family and friends who have enriched my life in so many ways.
