The Lodge

All the staff without exception are respectful, friendly, caring and go the extra mile. Attention to detail is paid in every area, from the fresh flowers on the dining tables to the full programme of activities for the residents. The Lodge has the highest standards of cleanliness and the meals are prepared each day with fresh local ingredients offering a wide choice and nutritious dishes. The manager is very 'hands on' and knows the idiosyncrasies of all her residents. Delighted that my friend who is 90 years old and for whom I have POA is so content there.

The Lodge

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.
