Complex care at Lakeview

As a specialist care home, Lakeview has an excellent track record of supporting adults whose placements have previously failed. Our high staffing levels allow us to build trust and work at the pace of the individual, which leads to improved person-centred and longer-term outcomes.

Many of the people we support at Lakeview are deemed to display behaviours that are ‘too complex’ for mainstream nursing and care providers. Our Nurse-led team has the skills and expertise to support people who display extreme behaviours of concern, including aggressive and sexualized behaviours.

For many of our service users, we’re successful in achieving a significant reduction in behaviours of concern and use of observations within 12 weeks of stay.

About our care

My husband moved to Lakeview after a long struggle to find him a home due to his challenging behaviour with his Alzheimer’s. As a family we are very happy with the care he is receiving. The staff are really caring. I would not hesitate to recommend Lakeview.
