Lockdown in Lander House & Stoppard House 24 November – 8 December
We have now had 2 members of staff test positive for Covid-19 in Lander House. As you know, 2 or more positive tests necessitates a lockdown. As Stoppard House is in such close proximity to Lander House both areas will be shut to all non-essential visitors. All other staff have come back negative and we are testing all family members today (24th Nov) too. However, POD visits are available during this two week lockdown. Please get in touch either via the booking link below. The lockdown lasts for 14 days as long as there are no further positive results during this time. We aim to be open again on 9 December but will keep you posted.
All other houses are open to visiting as usual. We risk assess the effect of lockdown on family members and, if we feel that your relative needs to have contact with you before the lockdown is over, we will be in contact and ask you to come in. Similarly if your relative is significantly ill we would always invite you to come and be with them.
Alternatively, you can call us in the main office on 0115 9683888 anytime Monday - Friday between the hours of 9am - 5pm and we can book it for you.
COVID Diaries - 2020
2020 has been a tough one for us all and at Landermeads it has been no exception. There have been times in the last year that we have felt afraid, challenged, devastated and tired. We were not spared and we have lost some of our family members at Landermeads before they were ready to go. We filmed these diaries to give staff the chance to voice how they felt.
Despite the tears what shines through is the passion and determination to put our family members at Landermeads first – they are truly a part of our family and the recurrent message is that we would do it all again. Part 4 is full of this heartfelt commitment.
A Christmas To Remember 2020
After a difficult year now is the time to celebrate the wonderful people we support and the incredible staff we work alongside.

You will recognize familiar faces as staff from all areas have sent us snippets including many from the most important participants – those we support.
We have worked with Big Ian Donaghy to bring you A Christmas to Remember and, I think you’ll agree, he has definitely done us proud. Thank you Ian!

Nursing in Social Care
We believe that nursing in social care is a fantastic opportunity and a rewarding career. Landermeads and Wren Hall produced this Health Education England funded film to promote this nationally.
At Landermeads we believe that there is potential in our staff and encourage career progression through the ranks – we currently have 5 qualified Nursing Associates, a further 4 about to qualify in January and four just starting their training. They have become an integral part of our nursing team and work under the supervision of our excellent nursing team.
"We Are Family"
Showcases the value of Dementia Care Matters 'Feelings Matter Most' philosophy for people living with dementia, which recognises that people living with dementia are more 'feeling beings' than 'thinking beings'.Filmed here at Landermeads, the film shows how the Butterfly household Model of Care identifies that quality dementia care is all about the beauty of the moment and sharing and celebrating life.
