London Road Nursing Home and Specialist Care Unit
Providing excellent clinical care to the elderly and young disabled within a homely environment in the heart of the East Midlands
Providing Excellent Care
London Road is the main A6 and the Home is prominently and conveniently located approximately a mile south of Leicester Main Line Rail Terminus with the City Centre just beyond. Main bus routes use the A6 with stops close by.
For those visiting by car, we have excellent on-site parking facilities.
While the Home presents an impressive victorian frontage, the building was enlarged and modernised some years ago to serve as a private hospital. Consequently, the extensions added, are generously proportioned with rooms for 33 residents that are serviced by wide corridors, enabling easy access around the Home.
Our residents’ needs are important to us and we strive to ensure the presence of comfortable surroundings in a relaxed environment, as well as a quality nursing service. There is an abundance of recreational space, plus Physiotherapy/Gym facilities, and well-tended level gardens with areas of seating to include disabled facilities.
We constantly look for ways to upgrade and improve the services and facilities we offer. For example we have recently undertaken a complete refurbishment of all assisted bathrooms, installing modern fittings and equipment and upgrading, at the same time, our wet room arrangements. A situation that helps facilitate the safety and comfort of our residents.
Additional services available:
- Newspapers & Magazines
We undertake placement of student nurses from Leicester University Medical School. This not only ensures that we keep up to date for our yearly educational audit to pass the grade, but also has additional benefits for our residents.
We also, for a number of years, have held contracts with both Leicester and Northampton PCT’s to provide specialist care on an ongoing basis to a number of residents.

Specialist Nursing Care
The Home is Nurse led by highly skilled and experienced nurses. We provide a high standard of care to residents across the age range, from 18 years onwards, for both male and female patients.
We provide care for patients with genetic or acquired brain injury, but also for other degenerative diseases including:.
- Motor Neurone disease
- Huntingtons disease
- Multiple Sclerosis
- Stroke complications
- longterm chronic respirator dependent adults
- Cardiac conditions and palliative care
Palliative and end of life care are provided with sensitivity and compassion and follow the wishes of the resident, and those close to them.
The nursing team are experienced in the management of P.E.G. feeding lines, pain management and invasive and non-invasive ventilation.
Local partnership with the ventilation consultant nurse enables proactive care planning, optimisation of quality of life, independence and dignity.
A privately contracted G.P., enables continuity of care, advice to our residents and greatly reduces the need for emergency admissions to the acute units. All staff receive ongoing and refresher training to maintain our high standards of care.
A fully-equipped gymnasium and our own physiotherapist enables clients to maintain/improve their mobility and helps reduce pain from injured or impaired limbs. Dieticians and speech and language therapists visit as needed. Dentists and Opticians visit on a regular basis.
Short and long term places are available, including respite, convalescence, weekend or night placements.
Full assessments are carried out prior to placements, to ensure that all needs can be met. Residents and their families are encouraged to view our Home to ensure that they are happy with the accommodation and the provision of care.
