Care Services

Currently we offer care for people aged 60+. We also have beds for EMI (Elderly Mentally Ill); those suffering with dementia and alzheimers. Residents interested in staying at Lymehurst are encouraged to visit the home to sample the atmosphere, giving them time to get to know staff and other fellow residents first, before before taking permanent residency. If you would like further information please do not hesitate to get in touch; we are only too happy to help.

The home’s visiting policy will always be adapted to the changing conditions concerning the spread of Covid-19 and the associated Government policies and guidance. The current policy reflects government guidance with effect from 25th February 2022. Please refer to our current policy for further information.

Our Rooms

At Lymehurst we have thirty-three rooms (thirty single rooms & three double rooms), which are tastefully decorated and personalised by the residents, to create their own homely feel. Lymehurst has had two grand extensions built with ten rooms in one and twelve rooms in the newest extension. All of the rooms in the extensions are en-suite and contain all of the luxuries needed. Residents also have the option to have individual phone numbers, helping them to maintain their independence. We think it is these little touches that make residents feel at home here at Lymehurst.

Facilities & Amenities

All recently built rooms are elegantly furnished to include pine furniture, en suites with hand basins, toilets, smoke detectors, aerial sockets, phone sockets and nurse call bells for 24hr assistance. There are hand rails throughout the corridors to assist residents with mobility around the home and a stair lift, making Lymehurst fully accessible for all. Existing bedrooms offer a very comfortable environment and are fitted with the necessary amenities. We also have the option of double rooms for people wanting to share, or for couples who would like to stay with us here at Lymehurst.

Lengths of Stay

We hope to make Lymehurst Rest Home feel like home. We offer long-term stays and short-term, including respite care. We aim to provide all of our residents with 24hr care in a secure, relaxed and homely environment in which their care, well being and comfort are of our prime importance.

Sometimes you may need a short-term stay, should this be following an operation or recovering from a stay in hospital. Maybe you are a carer and planning some time away; this option would be ideal for you and your loved one.
