Residential care

We take great pride in offering the highest standards of residential care in our home. Indeed, the level of care we give to each and every one of our residents is exactly what we would want our own loved ones to receive.

Tollington Lodge residents are encouraged to maintain their own lifestyle in a way which reflects their own personal choices, enabling them to have as much independence as possible. You and your loved one can be safe in the knowledge that care and assistance is always close at hand, 24 hours a day, from our fully-trained care teams.

Our care teams are backed up by a strong support team of local GPs and district nurses. A chiropodist and hairdresser also visit our home regularly.

A full weekly activities calendar encourages residents to pick and choose from a range of options, carefully created in line with their abilities and interests. Each resident is free to join in with planned activities as much or as little as they wish and there are always areas reserved for anyone who wishes to enjoy a little one-to-one time. It goes without saying that food plays an essential role in promoting health and well-being. We only employ chefs with a true passion for home cooking who will happily ensure that all tastes, preferences, diets and appetites are catered for.

Of course, our maintenance and housekeeping are always on hand to ensuring that our facilities are presented to the highest standards.

Once the choice has been made, we will do our utmost to help make the transition of moving into our home as comfortable and as easy as possible for all concerned. Bedrooms are freshly decorated to welcome a new resident and we encourage people to bring with them items of furniture, photographs, plants and other belongings to help them feel ‘at home’. Our friendly staff will be on hand to provide a warm welcome. They have much experience in helping residents settle into their new home and many firm friendships are made as a result. Friends and relatives are of course welcome at any time. Please feel free to contact us.
