Our Leicester care home offers exceptional 24 hour residential and nursing care for both individuals and couples and has outstanding facilities and services, all set within our comfortable, supportive care community. South Lodge has a choice of 99 beautiful private apartments that vary from studios through to one and two bedrooms suites all with their own wet room style bathroom and some with kitchenettes ensuring our residents can remain as independent as they wish.
We also offer a separate dementia area comprising of 17 suites, each with an en-suite wet room. Comfortable, open plan naturally lit and staffed by specially trained staff, it offers unique support for those residents requiring specialist dementia care giving each and every resident the unique support they may need.
Ours is a supportive, companionable community. We use technology to support our residents to connect with family near and far, and social engagements, as well as mental and physical activity to keep us all active and in the best of spirits.
