Additional Information

  • Where you'll work
  • Larkland House care home in Ascot provides excellent care in lovely surroundings.

    The dedicated and experienced team in our purpose-built care home in Ascot, Berkshire, offers a range of care options for older people, including residential, nursing and respite care including for people living with Alzheimer's and other forms of dementia.

    Being an established care home, Larkland House has developed a great reputation for delivering the highest standards of care.

    Flexibility is important - in caring for older people and in supporting their families and carers. We are very happy to care for people on a short term basis, giving their carers a break so they can enjoy a holiday or just have some time to themselves. Short term care may also be a useful solution if a person is recovering from a stay in hospital and needs more intensive support than their family carers feel they can provide.

    There's lots of space at Larkland House. All our bedrooms are lovely and big and residents are welcome to add their own personal touches to their rooms. We're even open to people bringing small pets with them.

    We've recently opened a brand new nursing dementia floor with 14 spacious and beautifully decorated rooms for older people living with dementia. All the rooms are en-suite and have lots of space for relaxing.

    Larkland House care home also has beautiful gardens, including a secure area where residents can help out with some gardening if they like, or simply sit and enjoy a cup of tea in the fresh air. We're in a great semi-rural location but still conveniently close to all of the shops and amenities of Ascot high street.
