Feel at home in a
warm and friendly environment

For those looking for residential care, we have expert carers who offer personal care to those who need that little bit of extra support such as washing and dressing. We also have a carefully curated menu which covers a variety of dietary requirements and an extensive range of activities carried out by our teams.

What is residential care?

Residential care is a type of general care for those who may be in need of additional support for everyday things such as eating, washing and housework. Within a residential setting, residents can be as independent as they want. However, the support is there if needed. A day in the life of someone in residential care may include showering in the morning, making breakfast, conducting social activities and helping with a nighttime routine.

Is residential care the right choice?

Making the decision to move yourself or your loved one into a care home. However, there comes a point when you or your loved one may be in a position of danger to themselves or others around. There may also come a point in time where your loved one needs additional support that is difficult to help with alone.

The main benefit of residential care is that yourself or your loved one are that care homes offer a support system but also a homey feel. Friends and family can visit when they want and independence is encouraged. Residents are urged to still live their own life but also have the support there if needed. This helps for various reasons especially regarding falls and accidents. 

If however, you feel your loved one may need more support than this Chestnut Lodge also offers dementia and nursing care which you can read about below.
