20% off short stays at Whittington House

Our short respite stays can provide a crucial break for carers to do daily chores, go on holiday or simply have some well-earned time off whilst residents often enjoy the chance to meet new people and try out new activities.

If your loved one has spent time in hospital as a result of a fall, an operation or a major illness, convalescent care provides care and support to help them feel like themselves again.

Residents may be admitted to a care home from the community without needing to complete a 14-day self-isolation period, if they satisfy the requirements. Please ask for details.

Beryl Tells Her Story

Making the decision about moving into a care home or moving a loved one into a care home can be emotional and finding the right one for you or your family member can be difficult. Our teams are here to guide and help you every step of the way.

Beryl moved into Whittington House Nursing Home in Cheltenham ten months ago and found her slice of heaven! Although Beryl had a full life meeting up with friends and family, a fall alone in her flat caused her and her family concern. They decided to look for a home where Beryl could retain her freedom, but have a sense of security and Whittington was the place!

Keeping things personal

At Whittington House Nursing Home

The wonderful surroundings at Whittington House Nursing Home are matched by the standard of care our team brings residents. We love learning as much as we can about the people we care for, so your loved one’s time is tailored to their individual needs, interests and preferences. This can be as small as knowing when they like to wake up, to how they like their tea, and everything in between.

We give as much independence as possible, letting individuals choose how to run the home and if they prefer dinner in front of the TV, or even dusting their own room, we’ll make it happen. Just as putting their own stamp on their bedroom, we’ll help them to personalise it with the things they love.

Keep doing what you love

At Whittington House Nursing Home, there’s something to tickle everyone’s fancy – from the activities room to the hair salon, our packed schedule of events and activities, to picnics in the courtyard. And if residents prefer to spend one-on-one time with a member of the team, they can read the paper, pop to the shops or have a catch up in the bistro. We have strong connections with the Cheltenham community, many of our residents invite them to join in our activities or even run their own here.

Meet the Manager

Lyndsey Dixon

As the Registered Manager of Whittington House Nursing Home, I lead a professional team in providing the highest standards of residential, nursing and dementia care for residents with varying needs. Our commitment ensures they lead happy and fulfilling lives, whilst maintaining choice over the care and support they receive.

I am a qualified Nurse with a degree in Specialist Practice for Oncology and Palliative Care as well as in depth knowledge of dementia care. During my career I have worked at Cheltenham and Bristol hospitals, as a ward sister in a local hospice, and as Manager of a Dementia Nursing Home.

The diversity of my job, with the opportunity to be a dynamic manager and role model, is very rewarding. I feel very fortunate to be in a post which gives me such fulfilment and which enables me to bring my confidence, knowledge, experience and skills to Caring Homes and my team, who in turn are enabled and encouraged to give the best care and support they can to our residents and their families.

I live in Gloucestershire where I was born and raised, and enjoy spending time with my partner and daughter, trying to share my relaxation time with my family as much as possible.

I love reading and music, as well as baking and cake decorating in my spare time. We have recently acquired an allotment and I can’t wait to start making the most of the outdoors together and then eating the hard-earned results of efforts!
