Grafton Lodge has 20 comfortable bedrooms, most with en-suite facilities. There is a spacious lounge and dining room plus a quiet garden room for reading and relaxing with tea and refreshment facilities. This is a favourite room with residents to host meetings with their visitors.
The home has a large patio and beautiful garden where residents can enjoy peaceful relaxation and if the weather permits, gentle exercising. We have a gardening club and hold several events for them, their families and friends there, during the summer months.
We know that residents arrive at Grafton Lodge at a vulnerable time in their lives. It is often a decision which is made quite quickly due to a change in health and circumstances and usually because living in their own home is no longer the safest option.
It is also a difficult time for their relatives, who while they may feel relief that their loved one is safe and cared for, will need to be reassured that all staff will be sensitive to the resident’s needs and wants.
All our residents are treated with kindness, compassion, dignity and respect. We take a wholly person centred approach, in particular with the new resident’s needs, choices and preferences and relatives and friends continue to be an important part of their lives.
