A wonderful, safe and homely environment

At Chestnut Lodge we aim to provide a wonderful, safe and homely environment. We want to make yourself and your loved ones as happy and feel as welcome as possible. To do this we have an expert team of carers and nurses as well as constantly refreshing our bedrooms and communal areas.

Daily life at Chestnut lodge

At Chestnut Lodge we aim to provide our residents with familiarity and structure in their day to day lives. Our team of expert activity leads partake in various activities throughout the day. These activities range from bingo, crafts, pamper days to days in the garden at our home. We take suggestions from residents and their loved ones as well as introducing activities which stimulate the mind and can be adapted to those with dementia care. People really are the centre of everything we do, we are constantly improving, adapting and updating our homes.

Safe and caring

Our carers and nurses are on hand 24/7 to provide a safe home for you and your loved ones. We are constantly updating our care plans, introducing training and new technology into our homes to provide this.

Comfortable and sociable

We understand that once the decision has been made to move yourself or your loved one into our home it can be an often scary and lonely experience. That is why we make our homes as sociable as possible. Not only do we have an expert activities team on hand to provide fun and exciting group work we also have communal areas which often have music and television on for our residents to come and go as they please.

Health and diet

We understand the importance of a good diet and movement. That is why we have designed menus which cater for all diet types, and also all religions including halal produce. On top of this, we incorporate movement into our activities to make sure both health and fitness is covered in our home.


All of our newly refurbished bedrooms include en-suites to ensure complete privacy for our residents. Our rooms are designed to fit your personal taste, and we welcome all personalisation including hanging photos and any other special touches which will make you feel more at home. Our rooms also have wifi and televisions so yourself or your loved one have the option to relax in their own space.


Our activities leads have created a timetable designed to suit all of our residents in the home. These activities range from bingo to gardening in order to stimulate our residents both mentally and physically.
