Sandycroft Nursing Home has a real family feel and is dedicated to providing high-quality nursing care for people nearing the end of life.
We are recognised nationally as an award-winning care home for people requiring end-of-life or palliative care and were the first care home in Blackpool to receive a Quality Hallmark Award from the National Gold Standards Framework (GSF) Centre, the UK’s largest provider of training in end-of-life care.
Rooms at Sandycroft provide safe, comfortable and welcoming personal spaces for our residents, decorated and furnished in a fresh, contemporary scheme. We encourage residents and families to personalise their rooms with pictures and trinkets and our communal spaces are bright and airy.
A well-equipped courtyard garden provides a space for residents to enjoy Blackpool’s sea air.
At Sandycroft we believe in making memories. Our activities coordinators organise a range of activities and social events for residents, families and friends to enjoy.
At Sandycroft we provide a wide range of care services and a commitment to deliver the high standards of considerate, effective care we’d expect for ourselves or a loved one.
Manager at Sandycroft
I qualified in nursing in 1984 and became a staff nurse in Portsmouth, specialising in diabetes care. I then moved to Lancashire and after working at Royal Preston Hospital I joined the care sector, becoming a home manager in 1990 and the manager at Sandycroft since 2008.
It was in the care sector that my experience in palliative care began. I have qualifications in palliative care as well as in management for the private sector, including legal matters and dementia care.
We are proud that Sandycroft holds the beacon status Gold Standard Framework award for which I am an assessor and an ambassador.
I also act as a student mentor for both the University of Central Lancashire and the University of Cumbria, which enables us to help train and offer work experience to future nurses.
Sandycroft enjoys a superb location in the centre of Blackpool, just a few streets away from the golden sands, promenade, South Pier and many attractions.
We are on Lytham Road within 100 yards of the Waterloo Road shopping area. The view along Lytham Road is crowned by the iconic silhouette of Blackpool Tower.
There are excellent transport links, with Blackpool South train station around the corner and the famous trams close by.Get Directions
My friend, who was subject to end of life care, went into Sandycroft Nursing home. I visited the home prior to her admittance and I was impressed with the atmosphere, layout and cleanliness of the place. From the day my friend was admitted she was treated with loving care and dignity and it's as though it's just a large family home. We placed pictures on the wall, photographs and memorabilia to give it that homely feel. I too was made to feel at home during my constant visits over a number of weeks, I was offered drinks and food. I got to know all the members of staff from catering, through to management on a first name basis. I visited at all times of the day and night and the level of service remained constant and highly professional.- Friend Of Resident
