Care home admissions during the Covid-19 pandemic

Safe admissions into our care homes includes the option for new residents to self-isolate in the comfort of their own home for 11 days, before joining us in the care home where they will be tested for Covid-19 and supported to self-isolate for 3 more days until the result of the test is known.


Lammas House is a delightful care home in the heart of Coventry in Warwickshire, providing residential care and respite care to our residents.

The team and residents at Lammas House are brimming with pride, having just received an ‘Outstanding’ rating from the Care Quality Commission (CQC). When you visit it is easy to see why it is the only residential care home in Coventry with this incredible rating.

Our incredible team

At the helm of our home is manger Rukmi Silva, who has managed Lammas House since 2012. Rukmi is passionate about her residents being directly involved in how their care home is run. So much so, that she has two resident representatives who are as dedicated as she is to her residents’ views coming first.

The team are what makes Lammas House such a special place. They were shortlisted for not one, but two respected national Caring UK Awards 2018. The home went through to the grand finals of the Regional Care Home of the Year (Midlands and Wales) category. This accolade is for care homes which truly stand out in their region, with a special focus on nutrition, innovation and dignity.

Dining experience

Our home was also in the running for the Catering Team of the Year award. This is for teams which strive for perfection in every meal they cook. Mealtimes are certainly a real highlight of the day for the residents. At 12 noon on the dot, they filter into the dining room and are ready!

Head Chef Matthew Fulleylove and Assistant Chef Kuldeep Brar create a dining experience for their residents, who enjoy lovingly prepared home-cooked food.

At breakfast, there’s anything from toast, to any item of a cooked breakfast served however they choose – everything centres on residents’ choice. Matthew and Kuldeep serve the residents, explaining what is on the menu and seeing what they fancy. A half portion of this or a different homemade sauce – nothing is too much trouble. It is a calm environment where time is taken to enjoy the food. The team also bakes cakes daily for afternoon tea. Residents are also actively involved in preparing for mealtimes and in shaping the menus too. Several of them love to help, so every day they enjoy peeling the vegetables.

Enjoyable experiences

Experiencing activities which enrich our residents’ lives and involving them in the community outside the care home in Coventry are extremely important. If you pop in, you will often see one of the carers playing the piano while another sings to the residents. They are often joined by young volunteers from the National Citizen Service who take part in projects and activities at the home. There has also been a rolling programme to welcome students from the University of Worcester and Birmingham City University into Lammas House.

Praised for how safe the home is in the recent CQC report, Lammas House has a ‘Say no to infection' accreditation through Coventry and Rugby Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG). Lammas House also has a ‘React to Red Skin’ accreditation, a campaign backed by the local authority to prevent pressure ulcers.

Stories from the home

Residents Bonnie and Eileen

Wonderful words 

“The care my aunt has received over the past year or more has been exceptional. It provides a warm homely facility with friendly and caring staff. A small home which feels like a home from home - not an impersonal 'hotel'.”
