Here at Broadwater Lodge, we provide award-winning dementia care, as well as residential, respite and day care for older people.
Broadwater Lodge is a welcoming, purpose-built care home in Farncombe, near Godalming, in Surrey. Over the course of just a few years, our care home has won a number of regional and national awards – and our crowning success was being rated 'outstanding' by the Care Quality Commission in 2016.
A care home with a difference
Most of our residents are living with dementia, so we work hard to create a home that’s very dementia-friendly. We get to know each resident extremely well and we find ways to make their days calming and fulfilling. The environment we have created is key. 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. There’s even a 1940s-style kitchen and a little nursery, with lifelike dolls and baby items.
After our chickens proved a hit with residents, and given the popularity of animal therapy visits to the home, we recently created a small farm at the home, with pigs, goats, a rabbit and guinea pigs. We believe in rewriting what living in a care home should be like and this is definitely a first for a UK care home.
Enjoy a change of scene
Broadwater Lodge also has a day club for older people who live in the local area. The club has its own facilities and is open Monday to Friday, 9am to 3pm, with flexibility to suit club members.
