The rooms are arranged into four streets of 16. Each street has its own dining room, lounge and kitchen area along with an activities room. Residents are encouraged to socialise to get to know each other and form friendships. Residents are also encouraged to take part in activities to learn new skills and to continue with their hobbies and interests.

When moving to Chestnut Lodge, residents have the choice of remaining with their own GP or registering with the home GP.

Each resident is encouraged to develop a good relationship with their key worker, who will make sure they get the care and attention they need.

We know that food is important to our residents and we take great care to find out what each resident likes and dislikes. Our on site catering team provide three main meals a day, with a range of nutritious dishes which are monitored and changed according to tastes.
