Meet the Manager

“Since joining Lakeside Care Home in Reading in 2012 as a Care Assistant, B&M Care has supported and developed my career, resulting in a number of promotions, including my most recent appointment to Home Manager in December 2018. With a degree in Photography, and an NVQ Level 5 in Health & Social Care, my education has encouraged me to combine theory-based practice with my passion for creativity, which ultimately encourages both me, and my team, to deliver something truly unique within the home. 

We are a warm and friendly home with a team dedicated to supporting our residents and families with a high standard of care, in an environment that feels homely, safe and stimulating.”

Magda Burdzy – Home Manager


Engagement and Wellbeing

Here at Lakeside Care Home in Reading, engagement and wellbeing is at the heart of our person-centred approach to care. Our dedicated Engagement Leads organise varied social calendars for events and entertainment, in groups and individually. Every resident experiences meaningful occupation, designed around their personal wishes and preferences.

Frequent visits from therapy dogs, local schoolchildren, and musicians keep the residents at Lakeside always entertained. Our Engagement Team love encouraging the residents’ hobbies and interests, arranging karaoke nights, and caring for the on-site guinea pigs who share the home.

Every resident, in each B&M home, also has access to The Hideaway – a cosy countryside retreat with extensive grounds, and on-site Reminiscence Museum.
