Our purpose-built centre benefits from a high standard of décor, landscaped gardens and the most modern facilities to welcome residents, relatives and friends. All rooms have en-suite facilities. 24-hour nursing care is offered to older people in need of support, including people living with dementia and people with mental health issues.

In its central location in Workington, Newlands has the best of both worlds: there are plenty of local amenities yet it is within easy reach of the beautiful Lake District and the scenic Solway Coast.

We also have the Lakelands Unit here at Newlands, which is our complex care unit.

Melissa Harker

General Manager

Welcome to Newlands, my name is Melissa and I am the General Manager here.

I have been a qualified RNLD since 2007 and previously worked within the NHS in various roles prior to joining Barchester Healthcare in 2012 as the Head of Unit for the specialist support unit; this was all before being promoted to the General Manager of Newlands Care Centre. Since joining Barchester in 2012, myself, along with the staff team, have developed and are a committed and dedicated workforce that aims to deliver the best quality person-centred care. We have relationships with not only the residents, but their family and friends too; we are very much a home away from home.
