Review of The Lodge on Tuesday 4 February 2014 by Patricia Cusa (Daughter in Law of Resident)

She has been in The Lodge for 7 years and is about to reach her 100th birthday. We have found nothing but kindness, caring above and beyond the call. they always have time and patience for Mum and she responds to them all, feeling loved and secure. They recognise her love of music and the need for company. This only happens with the right person at the helm!! She is so very nice and a very hands on Manager.

Recommended by a nursing friend for my aunt, and absolutely marvellous in all respects. Total happiness and wellbeing throughout the home and always saw lovely interactions with other clients and staff. We feel that if we need a care home this is where we would wish to be!
