Nursing Home

Why Our Nursing Home?

If you need a Nursing Home, either for yourself or your loved one, what do you look for?

At Boarbank Hall the sisters and staff adopt a simple philosophy of care, based on the awareness that each person has the right to be loved, listened to, understood and respected.

We provide care and support during all stages of illness so that each can live as fully as possible.

We believe it is important that the sick are kept at the centre of everyone’s lives and not forgotten by society.

The beautiful situation of Boarbank Hall facing south and overlooking Morecambe Bay and Humphrey Head, provides a peaceful and attractive setting.

Our accommodation consists of 27 single rooms, each comfortably furnished and equipped with bedside nurse call system, television and private telephone. We also have two lounges facing the bay and leading out into extensive gardens which are mostly wheelchair-friendly.

Residents are more than welcome to bring familiar items of furniture; it is our wish to make you feel at home here during your stay.

We have a small shop selling toiletries, stationery and other basic items and our Guest House enables family members or friends of residents to stay overnight while visiting. Contact them for more information.

Our Care for the Sick

Medical and personal care

We can provide post-operative and nursing care, care of the frail elderly, respite and end-of-life care.

Local people can remain registered with their own GP and others will be registered with a local doctor during their stay with us.
Other services are provided by visiting dentists, chiropodists and opticians.

We offer a high staff/resident ratio to ensure the best of care and enable us to meet the needs of each individual.

We have Sisters from the Community working alongside our lay staff. We train all our staff to a high level, and take care to maintain the ethos fostered by the Sisters over the years.


Our staff are our best assets. We recognise this and invest in them by regularly updating their professional development.


Religious and spiritual care

We emphasise the need to care for the physical, emotional, social and spiritual needs of all our residents. All our staff are dedicated to  caring for the whole person and his or her family. 


Those patients who would like to are welcome to join in the regular daily services in the chapel, as well as the bigger occasional events. They will be given any necessary assistance to attend these. Our chaplain visits the nursing home and ministers from various local churches also visit. An Anglican communion service is held once a month.


“It is both a joy and a privilege to visit the residents on a regular basis, to listen to their concerns, to offer support, and to help, if needed..” Sr M


We are delighted and proud to announce that Boarbank Hall has been awarded The Gold Standard Framework Award at Platinum level.

This nationally recognised award acts as a kite-mark for quality in caring for people nearing the end of life. It recognises Boarbank Hall’s long-term commitment to embedding quality care for individuals, ensuring their wishes are met and they live well until they die. It inspires us to deliver compassionate, personalised and proactive care, in the place and manner of the residents choosing.

We are registered with the Care Quality Commission and they inspect us regularly with announced and unannounced visits. Please click their logo for the latest report.

Finally we have the Cardiac Smart Award which shows we have a defibrilator and, very importantly, staff trained in CPR and defibrilation.


A dedicated member of staff arranges a varied programme, based on requests from residents. Regular events include sessions of singing, baking, exercise, poetry, crafts and manicure & massage. The programme of events and talks is very varied, including local history, theatre, concerts and music evenings and visits from schools. Patients may also join in the courses run from the Guest House.

Patients are frequently joined by the Sisters and other guests to celebrate anniversaries and other important events.

We have a wheelchair adapted minibus which is used to take patients on visits to see the Lake District or other local places of interest.

Dining and Food

The food at Boarbank Hall is prepared on site to a high standard. Patients may dine in their own rooms or in the lounge with other residents.

We provide individual attention to menus and use fresh local and home grown produce. Special dietary needs are catered for.

Our fully equipped and staffed kitchen is rated 5* for food hygiene.
