Our News

About Us

The Lawns Nursing Home provides tranquil and relaxing accommodation in beautiful grounds. Situated in the village of Kempsey, it is set in 3 acres of attractively lawned gardens and was originally a regency manor house.

The Lawns enjoys an excellent reputation for the quality of its nursing and palliative care.  The nursing staff have over 200 years of experience, and with our many long serving care staff, the home has been recognised with the coveted gold standard framework award with merit, of which we are all justifiably proud.

Carol Harris Home Manager

Having worked within the NHS for many years as both a Theatre sister and a Senior Manager, I made the decision to ‘get back to basics’ and applied for a post as an RGN at my local nursing home in Worcestershire.

In due course, I became deputy matron and latterly matron of this 3 star home.  I obtained my Registered Manager’s award in 2005, and also became an NVQ assessor and mentor for the nursing students from the local university.

In 2009, I became Home Manager at The Lawns and, in the years since, my staff and I have worked really hard to make the home one of the best in Worcestershire.  The home specialises in End of Life Care and, in September 2013, we obtained the Gold Standard Framework Award for End of Life Care – something each one of us is really proud of.

Running a nursing home can be very hard work at times but it also brings plentiful rewards; being able to look after our residents and their families to the best of our ability is a privilege.

Our Quality Care

The Lawns provides residential and nursing care, on a long term, convalescent or short stay basis. Our dedicated, long-serving team are proud of the awards they have achieved, including the highest accreditation for care, the Gold Standard Framework, for outstanding nursing and palliative care.

Our purpose built new extension opened in August 2018 and provides 20 rooms, all en-suite, with the ground floor rooms having their own gardens. A stunning glass atrium sensory garden links the new extension to the manor house. The manor house provides single and shared accommodation, the majority of which is en-suite, all refurbished to a high standard.

Our ethos is to provide the highest quality person-centred care, in a warm and friendly environment.

Our food is locally sourced, cooked from fresh ingredients and tailored to individuals’ wishes and needs.

It was only for a short and very difficult time for both her and her family, but the service provided by all the staff members was much appreciated.

Our Activities

Like all Heritage Manor homes, we have dedicated staff who focus on providing a varied programme of events throughout the week, both on a group and one-to-one basis.

We like to help our residents carry on their favourite activities wherever possible, but also to introduce new experiences.  Our activities staff have a varied background, from organising large musical events to beauty therapy, and they find something for everyone.

We have a full-time activities programme run by our activities organisers. These range from beauty treatments and hairdressing to chair-based exercise classes, live entertainment, pop-up shops, theme days, crafting, themed super evenings and art and gardening clubs.

We always encourage friends and family to take part in our social activities, and are keen to help arrange birthday parties and special events.  We also celebrate Christmas and Easter, hold an annual Summer fete, have firework displays and hold events to which all are invited.  We also encourage residents and staff into the garden as much as possible.
