case study

49-bed luxury retirement village

Lincombe Manor is a luxury retirement village set in a stunning location, surrounded by woodland, with breathtaking views out to sea. At the heart of this relaxed and tranquil setting is the Manor House, a beautiful Grade II listed building dating back to 1864, featuring fabulous communal areas and a dining hall. The village boasts cutting-edge design and modern facilities stylishly integrated into century-old surroundings. It provides luxury living designed with security, service and comfort at front of mind. The new care centre will house facilities for all levels of need from 24-hour nursing support to domiciliary care, physiotherapy, post-operative care and medical services.

what we did

The Solution

Some of the villages provide 24 hour nursing care at a special care centre, should needs change. Professional registered nurses and experienced care assistants are available for more complex health needs and care may be tailored according to these needs.

The Benefits

All of the properties are self-contained and independent, but offer the convenience of being part of a community with a wonderful variety of facilities and social activities on hand. A wide range of residential care services are offered, which include more personal care, such as help with bathing, dressing and medication administration if required.

After extensive evaluation and trials, BaKare Beds were successful in winning this prestigious contract to equip Lincombe Manor with 40 nursing beds and mattresses to meet a diverse range of care needs, with those beds adapting to changing needs.  BaKare’s products needed to fit in with the aesthetics of the beautiful Grade II listed buildings and BaKare had to provide a high service level of delivery, installation, training and after sales service.



‘Selecting the BaKare Residential Plus bed as the prime variable height nursing care bed for the prestigious new 49 bed development at Lincombe Manor Care Centre in Torquay, has met with all of the expectations.  The quiet and smooth operation, easy profiling, delighted the staff team and the products flexibility for expansion of options immediately catered for the practical and design aspirations. The delivery, installation, training support and service needs have all been met with cautious efficiency, thus we have now set the bench mark and have confidence again in choosing BaKare Beds.
