We have our own minibus and regularly take residents to garden centres, coffee houses, museums and the local countryside. Local entertainment and church groups also visit regularly. Residents at Laurel Bank are encouraged to continue with hobbies they enjoy, such as photography, woodwork, art, cooking and gardening, to name a few. Wi-Fi is available as well, so residents can access the internet or check their emails anytime they wish!
The home is ideally located just 10 minutes from the centre of historic Lancaster, and boasts over of the city’s castle, the rolling hills of the Pennines and tranquil Morecambe Bay. We are also 30 minutes from the Lake District and, in the other direction, the seaside town of Blackpool.

Hi, my name is Lyndsay, and I am the General Manager here at Laurel Bank.
I am an RGN and have worked in the care sector for over 20 years. I moved over to Lancaster in 2019 from the North East to work for Barchester.
I began my career as a care assistant in 1998 and found that I enjoyed the environment so much that I trained to be a nurse, then transferred to management.
As a manager of a care home, every day is different and, at Barchester, we endeavour to enhance the lives of all residents on a daily basis. We incorporate their life history's and interests when planning activities in the home so that they can live life to the fullest.Get in touch Meet my team
