Lakeview Lodge

Lakeview Lodge has recently been redesigned as a home providing skilled Dementia care offering person-centred care for people with the condition. The home is based close to Fairhaven Lake, with its wildfowl habitat, boating, bowling green and lawn tennis courts.

The home is ideally located for the village of Ansdell and is a short stroll to the local shops, cafes and railway station.

Lakeview Lodge benefits from a team of caring staff, trained to a professional standard and providing a high standard of care.

Lakeview Lodge has purpose considered décor, textures, music and lighting and an Activity Coordinator who provides daily meaningful and relevant activities.

In September 2018, we opened it’s sensory garden where purpose built designed features includes a colourful circular path, sights and smells which evoke memories of the past, skilled lighting, textures, colours and music to enhance the sensory experience. Bus stops and benches will encourage reminiscence and outdoor activities are aimed to improve the quality of life for our residents.

Please call our enquiry line on 01253 922688 or 07885 570870 to view our beautiful new rooms and facilities.



Sophie Herstritt

I am the Registered Manager at Lakeview Lodge. I started as a Senior Carer in 2016 after working in care since I was 21. I was promoted to Deputy Manager then subsequently Manager due to my knowledge and vast experience in Dementia Care. I absolutely love my job because it doesn’t feel like work.

I have recently achieved my Level 5 Diploma in Health & Social Care at Preston College.

I am the Team Leader at Lakeview Lodge. During school I had work experience at a nursing home to which I went to work full time when I was 16. I’ve been in the care industry ever since.

I started at Newfield Lodge as a care assistant in 2017 and was promoted to senior care assistant after a year. I came over to Lakeview Lodge in May 2018 during it’s transition from a residential to a dementia home and was further promoted to Team Leader in September 2018. I am extremely contented here and I love my job.

I have a Level 3 Diploma in Health & Social Care.


Stuart Dimery

I am the Chef here at Lakeview Lodge. Coming from a Mechanical Engineering background, and after working away for 15 years I decided on a career change. I went to college and got my NVQ Level 3 in Catering in 2010.

From a young age my mum always said I should be a chef so that’s what I did.

It’s brilliant working here. My favourite food is Italian and the residents enjoy my Carbonara, Tuna Pasta Bake and Pasta Bolognese.
