Review of Derby Lodge on Friday 20 July 2012 by Alison St Pierre (Mother of resident)

Derby Lodge is a very informal, happy home enjoyed by the young people who live there. The building is always very clean, bright and welcoming and the gardens are wonderfully relaxing. Staff members are selected for their ability to engage with residents and offer a fun environment whilst also discreetly dealing with any necessary care componant to keep people safe and comfortable. My daughter has been very happy at Derby Lodge for over 10 years and is always keen to return there after home visits. I would highly recommend Derby Lodge to any families looking for supported accommodation for their loved ones.
