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.

What We Do
We can offer tailored and responsive care, whatever your needs are, and appreciate that your needs may change over time.
We can also provide high quality respite care for those times when you need some extra support away from home.
We know how important is that you:
- Feel safe and secure
- Live in an environment in which you feel comfortable and cared for
- Are able to stay active – taking part in activities and outings – so you can live life to the full and maintain your independence as much possible
- Are offered a great choice of excellent quality food, tailored to your requirements
- Live in a home with the highest standards of cleanliness - and no smells
- Are supported by caring, specialist staff and experienced managers
- Are involved in and consulted about what goes on in your home
We also love to involve families and friends in the events going on at The Warren and frequently hold open events such as celebrations and socials. Families and friends are always welcome at any time and should feel free to come and watch visiting performers and entertainers, stay for lunch or a coffee and join in with activities, too.
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.
We also have a hard-working and proud team of domestic staff led by Housekeeper, Anita, and a brilliant kitchen team - more about them here
And we mustn’t forget the ever-cheerful maintenance team who keep us ticking over safely and are currently overseeing renovations to bathrooms and some lovely cast iron boundary fencing. Thank you John, Robbie and Facilities Manager Mark.
We are very excited to welcome our new manager; Lesley brings with her many years of nursing experience and has been running a 70 bed care home ‘up country’ in Northampton. She has already proved to be worth her weight in gold and we are delighted to have her on the Lycette Care team.
Activities and Events
We are fortunate to have a dedicated Activities Coordinator, Carol. You’re sure to meet her if you’re a regular visitor as she likes to get to know all about our residents and their families and is a firm favourite with everyone. (Just don’t tell Max the cat ... he’s a close second.)
Carol puts together a great programme 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.
We also benefit from the crafty talents of Chantel who has assisted the residents to produce some beautiful art and crafts, some of which are pictured below.
