We're here to help, let us be part of the family
THE LAKELAND CARE GROUP
Our service is driven by the desire to make a positive difference in everything we do – even the smallest, tiniest things.
We're here to support not just the people who choose to make Lakeland Care their home, but to support that person's family and friends as well. Entrusting a third party with the care of your nearest and dearest is one of the hardest things in the world - you've done your best to ensure that Mum or Dad, Uncle or Auntie, or your best friend has been able to maintain their life to the full, and then you realise that whatever has been put in place is no longer sufficient to serve the best interests of anybody.
This is where we come in, able to provide an option that more often than not has not been something that has been given proper consideration previously. In the majority of cases, by moving into a communal living situation, individuals and their families, suddenly find that a whole raft of new opportunities opens up to them. Their day to day pre-occupation with managing basic daily routines and housekeeping is greatly relieved leaving people free to take advantage of activities on offer, spending time with friends new and old, or pursuing interests and hobbies.
We hope that all our residents and families soon get the feeling that they are part of a wider family that has a buzzing, vibrant life of its own – a feeling that is apparent as soon as you walk through the door.
The smaller scale of our Homes means that we can offer our personalised, bespoke service in the kind of domestic setting that people will be well used to in their own homes. Whilst our buildings are older and of more traditional design, they provide every modern amenity wth adaptions to facilitate life for people with physical disabilities.
It sounds daft to say it, but literally, if you've got the right aspirations, "the sky's the limit". If you're driven to make a difference, you'll know how rewarding it can be to immediately improve somebody's life by just doing the smallest and simplest thing. We're not looking for rocket scientists, just plain, sensible people who can put the needs of others above their own. Grow and cultivate your career while you're cultivating people's lives.
Lakeland Care's commitment to support of the family extends to local communities who we see as the wider family. We want to be an active and vital part of life for everybody in the local areas where we operate. Our Homes are a community amenity, providing venues for local societies and clubs, and acting as an information reference point to advise people on all aspects of care or onward referral to other specialist care advisors.
