  • "Thank you very much for allowing me to undertake my work experience at Lakeside. I would especially like to thank all the staff who helped and supported me during my placement. I especially enjoyed all the activities such as singing, films, puzzle games, art and crafts, and card-making. I think these kinds of activities really help the home's residents feel happy and healthy."

    Student

  • "[Resident] is settling in remarkably well at Lakeside. She has a lovely room overlooking allotments, and has been busy playing darts, doing small exercises, and borrowing books from the home’s mobile library service. What was evident was that Lakeside makes a significant effort to keep residents engaged, including daily one-to-one discussions. The management team is very focussed and run the home extremely well. All in all, very successful so far and I would recommend it."

Our Staff

Lakeside has a select team of experienced care staff who have each undertaken bespoke training to meet the individual needs of the home's residents. The home provides appropriate ratios of staff both day and night, alongside a day-to-day care ethos that delivers highly-personalised care where dignity, freedom and privacy are consistently upheld.

“Since joining Lakeside in 2012 as a Care Assistant, B&M Care has supported and developed me to enjoy a career that has cultivated a number of promotions, including my most recent appointment as 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 to ultimately encourage my team and I to deliver something unique within the home.”
Magda Burdzy - Home Manager
“I started my career at B&M Care in 1996 as a Care Assistant at St Lukes. Following several promotions, I transferred to Lakeside in 2015 as Assistant Manager, and have since been promoted to Deputy Manager. In addition to taking responsibility for fully inducting new members of staff, I have achieved an NVQ Level 3 & 4 in health & Social Care, as well as graduating as the home’s Moving and Handling trainer.”
