Lycette Care have over 25 years of experience in caring for and supporting people who need a helping hand. We are passionate about providing outstanding care.
Our service at The Warren always puts the person at the centre of care, with support tailored to the individual. We know that everyone is different and has different needs. We get to know individuals and their families to find out the things that matter; their care needs, their choices, their personality and what is important to them.
We will always promote independence and choice, consulting individuals and their families and supporting people in making plans – major and minor.
Our experienced, empathetic and well-trained team will work with you to find the right balance of care and to get the most out of life.

Corona Virus update - 22/07/2020
The Govt have announced changes to care home visits on 22/07/2020. This is our response:
"Since this started, we have taken a proactive approach to minimising the risk of the virus entering the home; this involved us restricting visitors initially and then closing the home on March 12th. We also invested heavily in PPE at an early stage and created a quarantine area in case we needed it- fortunately we didn’t and we have now removed that area. Our staff have been rigorous in their infection control both inside and out of the home. This has meant that The Warren has been and remains a safe place for our residents and the staff team. We have also been very fortunate in remaining fully staffed throughout this crisis with only some of the admin team and one care team member being furloughed. All are back at work now.
My main priority over the next few months is to ensure that we remain in the same situation, by reducing the risk, by limited the possible exposure that staff and residents have and by ensuring that we maintain our high infection control processes. Unfortunately this means that we will not be opening our doors to visitors in the foreseeable future regardless of what the government may or not announce over the next few weeks."

Our fantastic team of staff are constantly training and updating their skills and we are lucky enough to have decades of nursing experience to draw on from our highly skilled team of RGNs as well as our brilliant, kind, fun and dedicated team of carers.
Activities and Events
We are fortunate to have dedicated Activities Coordinators Nick and Robyn. You’re sure to meet them if you’re a regular visitor as they like to get to know all about our residents and their families.
They put together a great program of events in the home, including arranging visiting musicians and performers and visits from the local primary school - which is always great fun.
We also like to take residents out and about and have wheelchair accessible vehicles. That means we can facilitate anything from a quick cup of coffee and a look at the sea in Westward Ho!, to a trip to the theatre.
