Lavenders Care Home News

We place great emphasis on keeping in touch with families, loved ones and the wider community here at Lavenders. And we have some great systems in place to ensure that happens

Ensuring that residents stay in contact with family and loved ones is a priority for us here at Lavenders. We have telephone points in every room, Wi-Fi throughout our buildings for those who wish to use Skype/video calling systems or wish to email.

Visitors welcome

We have an open door policy when it comes to maintaining contact. This is our residents’ home and therefore there are no set visiting hours – residents are free to receive guests whenever they wish.

Friends, relatives and loved ones are regularly invited to our open days, events and celebrations and we also use our Facebook page to keep everyone informed about the various activities and events that take place here.

In addition, we send out our information-packed newsletters regularly so you can not only see what we have been up to, but what we have planned in the future.
