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 have recently joined the team at Lakeview Lodge as Team Leader.

I have 8 years experience in working in health and social care. My mum and sister are both nurse’s which gave me the inspiration to go into care as I saw how they helped others and how rewarding their jobs are.

We have a good team here at Lakeview Lodge and the residents are our number 1 priority.



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.

I have worked in Health and Social Care for the past 10 years. I have recently transitioned over from nights to days where I am a Senior Care Assistant.

I enjoy chatting to the residents and reminiscing with them about their past. I am a very chatty person and I am very dedicated to my job. I am very focused on ensuring the residents needs are tended to.

I have 4 children, 1 cat and 1 dog.

I have worked at Lakeview Lodge since August 2020. I am a senior care assistant and hold my NVQ Level 2 in Health & Social Care.

I have worked in care for the past 7 years. I always dreamt of being a nurse and the reason I got into health and social care was to work my way up to my dream but now I am working in a residential care setting, I could not imagine working anywhere else.

I enjoy dementia care and the residents are like my extended family.

I currently work as a Care Assistant at Lakeview Lodge and I have done for almost 2 years.

I have worked in care for the past 7 years. Prior to this I was a dance teacher for 17 years. I use my dancing skills to encourage the residents with daily exercises and I enjoy singing and dancing with them. I also enjoy doing other activities with the residents such as arts and crafts.

I hold my NVQ level 3 in Health & Social Care. I have two children who are both boys.
