Family is important to us. So we encourage friends, family and pets to be involved in the daily lives of our residents. Individual rooms can be decorated to personal choice.

"To the Management and staff of Lexham Park - in particular those who tended John during his recent illness. I would like to thank you all for your professional skills, but more importantly, the tenderness and respect you always showed to John. The grimness of the situation was made lesser by your humanity. With appreciation and best wishes."

"I couldn't wait to come back to Lexham Park from Hospital, the staff are all so friendly, and I feel so much like its home. You notice the positive and happy atmosphere as soon as you walk in the door"

"I work in four rest homes in the Western Bay area providing beauty services for residents. Hands down Lexham Park is the best. Lexham is so clean, fresh, smells great with lovely touches of diffusers about the facility. It looks great, lots of open spaces, places to get away and sit. Not one big lounge but lots of choices for residents to gather and enjoy music, gardens, outdoor areas. The staff are all so friendly, Julie and her team should be very proud of what they achieve consistently. This is why my mother was cared for at Lexham for many years and was looked after so very well. I couldn't speak highly enough."

"Our mother's last years at Lexham were the very best that we could have wished for. She was always treated with respect and kindness - Thank you!""

"As a short stay resident I was made to feel at home, warm and welcome. The food was wonderful, got me back on my feet again."
