Deciding to live in a care home is a big decision and it makes sense to plan ahead so that, when the time comes, you already know where you want to live. Once you have viewed a few care homes, one good way to try out Rose Lodge is to join our day care service, which is provided in the Cottage, our small community for people living with early to mid stage dementia. We offer a maximum of four Day Care places in this community of 15 people.
With our extensive active Living programme in an environment which is designed for people with dementia, the Cottage feels a bit like a social club where you can stay the night. You will find the Cottage a sociable and active community with a welcoming and relaxing atmosphere where you can be yourself, and join in activities such as gardening, music, cooking, drama, and pub quizzes.
Or you can just come and have your hair or nails done, or enjoy a relaxing hand-massage or bath. You tell us what will make you happy and we will do our best to meet your needs.
With our own wheelchair-adapted minibus, it is easy to come to Rose Lodge, we will pick you up from home and and drop you off at the end of the day. And if you use our day care service you will have priority when a room becomes available when you decide the time has come to join the Cottage community permanently.
Occasionally we have a room available for respite care where you can stay for a few days or weeks and this depends on rooms being available. We do no offer bookable respite stays.
