The Moorings

The Moorings is a purpose built, state of the art, contemporary home specially designed to provide the very best of care and a lifestyle choice for the active resident who wants to reside in luxury but comfortable surroundings.

Overlooking the sea and sand dunes in the 19th century Edwardian town of St Anne’s-on-the-Sea, a traditional seaside resort with floral displays, up-market hotels, a sandy beach and ice cream stalls it is within walking distance of St Anne’s Pier as well as the shopping “Square” opposite the pier. It is complemented by substantial, well stocked gardens, with consideration given to ensure there are plenty of seating areas to sit inside or outside to enjoy the views, the sea air, the scents and the rolling weather.

Many of the spacious, high quality bedrooms, all with en-suite facilities, offer views overlooking the sea, the gardens and an Italian style garden. It also offers residents restaurant style dining, a cinema, salon and an indoor bowling green.

With many seating areas, a library and lounges residents can choose to relax or take advantage of the extensive range of activities and make use of a range of facilities, including trips in the vintage motor car.

The key to achieving our principles, we ensure our teams value each resident and work with residents’ friends and families to build lasting relationships and ensure they have as much time as they require to meet our resident’s needs. In doing this we are providing compassionate and dignified care.

Sophie Herstritt

I am the Care Manager at The Moorings. 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.

Naomi Leppington

I started my career in care at The Moorings in 2013 and as a result of my hard work and commitment I was promoted to Senior Care Assistant in 2015. During my employment I have been inspired to study to become a mental health nurse and I’m currently in my 3rd year at UCLAN.

My duties include medication ordering and administration. I like working with older adults as they always have an interesting story to tell.


Bethany Easen

I am a Senior Care Assistant at The Moorings and have been here since 2016. I started out as a Carer but was promoted after 10 months due to my strong work ethic. I come from a large family and started my career in childcare but I decided I would prefer to work with older adults. My Nan was a manager of a care home and my mum works at Lakeview Lodge so care work must run in the family! I am a self-confessed workaholic.

I enjoy the day to day life in the home, I believe it’s the little things that matter.

I have recently completed a Mental Health Awareness Course which has really helped me to understand the many diversities of mental health and I am always willing to undertake more courses to expand my knowledge. I aspire to become a Senior Carer once I have gained more experience.

Jo Wallace

Having worked for the last 10 years in providing Retirement Living apartments for clients over the age of 55 with extra care 24/7 on site to suit individual needs, it was very rewarding to have been appointed the Business Development Co-ordinator for Lakeview Rest Homes in early October 2018.

My first impressions when I joined was what exceptional accommodation and how dedicated and caring were the team, everyone had a part to play in making the residents feel comfortable and at home. It made me realise that this is how I would want my loved ones to be cared for.

My main role is to work closely with families and friends in supporting our present and future residents, in making sure that they receive the most suitable accommodation and we can provide the care and support that’s required to make their stay as enjoyable and homely as possible.

I also will be involved in actively promoting and marketing all 4 of our care homes by working closely with the team and engaging in campaigns, events and engaging with the local community to raise the profile of Lakeview Rest Homes.

Rachel Leach

I am the Activities Co-Ordinator for all four of the homes at Lakeview Rest Homes Ltd. I started my career as a Care Assistant at The Moorings and when I got to know the residents I volunteered a few times to sing for them. When there was an opening for a new Activities Co-Ordinator I knew that I had to go for it as I have a passion for working with and assisting elderly persons as well as strong organisational skills.

I’m so looking forward to bringing my fresh ideas to my exciting role.


Mark Whitter

This is a newly created role in which I oversee all of the hospitality functions within the care home including the kitchen, restaurant, housekeeping, reception and activity teams. I am looking forward to building and maintaining relationships with current, past and future residents.

I come to The Moorings with over twenty years management experience in the hospitality industry and I will use the knowledge I have gained to ensure our residents receive the best possible service and standards every day.
