We provide ‘outstanding’, award-winning dementia care, as well as residential, respite and day care for older people.
Broadwater Lodge is an attractive, purpose-built care home located in the small town of Farncombe, near Godalming, in Surrey. We provide residential and respite care for older people, including those living with Alzheimer's and other types of dementia. We also run a popular day club for local older people who are still living in their own homes. We’re also working towards the Gold Standard Framework in high quality, compassionate end of life care.
An award-winning home
We were thrilled to win the Best Dementia Team category at the 2016 National Dementia Care Awards. The majority of our residents are living with dementia, so we work hard to create a home that’s extremely dementia-friendly.
What’s more, in October 2016 we learnt that Broadwater Lodge had been rated ‘outstanding’ by the English care regulator, the Care Quality Commission.
The ultimate in person-centred care
At Broadwater Lodge we pride ourselves on delivering the highest standards of person-centred care. Each resident has a care plan that’s personalised to their specific needs, and we work with them and their family to complete a life story book. This details their life experiences and interests, enabling us to understand them and explore innovative ways to tailor the home and activities to suit them.
A warm and loving home
We believe in focusing on what a resident can do, rather than what they can’t, and we’re always finding ways to enhance our home to appeal to residents. We’ve opened our own pub – The Stumbling Inn – which has its own working bar, fruit machine and pool table. We have a cinema, hair and nail salon and a sweet shop selling traditional sweets. There’s even a 1940s-style kitchen.
One resident asked to keep chickens, and now many of the residents play a key part in caring for them. We’ve also created a little nursery, with lifelike dolls and baby items. As well as achieving its aim of helping an introverted resident to interact more, it’s now a popular area with a number of our female residents.
Discover a care home with a difference
With meaningful activities, even residents who are living with advanced dementia can experience a fulfilling life. Thanks to our dedicated team, Broadwater Lodge has a warm, family atmosphere where residents feel loved and cared for, and their families and friends are always welcome.
