Where Quality of Life Counts

Grafton Lodge

A residential, dementia and respite care home for the elderly in Strood, Rochester, Kent.

We are a small Residential, Dementia and Respite Care Home in the Strood area of Rochester, Kent. The home is a large detached Edwardian building situated in a quiet residential street. With pleasant views of the surrounding area, it is near to Strood town centre, the river Medway and Rochester Castle and Cathedral.

Inside
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.

Outside
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.

Our residents
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.

Book a visit

Please don’t hesitate to contact us to arrange a visit. Just call Grafton Lodge on 01634 722 621 and we’ll arrange a date and time to suit you.

Our Vision

Is to provide a safe, stimulating and comfortable environment – a home-from-home where residents can enjoy an excellent quality of life.

Our Mission

Is to provide an holistic and person-centred, caring environment for residents by a highly trained and committed team of staff.

Our staff are empowered and encouraged to develop their skills, knowledge and experience. They are motivated to go the extra mile for the residents to ensure their physical and mental well-being.

Our Values

Dignity & Respect
The management team are all members of the Dignity in Care Campaign and are committed to ensuring that the core values and culture of the home respects the human rights of the individual. Continuing improving quality of care for the residents is at the heart of our service.

Health & Wellbeing
Boredom, loneliness and lack of a stimulating environment can adversely affect a person’s health and wellbeing.  Knowing how somebody lived their life can help us to ensure that we provide the lifestyle and activities which will enable the resident to continue to enjoy a meaningful life.

Wholeness
The physical, emotional, social and spiritual health of each individual is a lifelong journey and is part of who the resident is when they move into the home.  We understand the journey of wholeness and its relationship to health and wellbeing.

Keeping in Touch
Family members, friends and important contacts in the community are essential to everyone. We never forget this and make sure that a resident’s visitors are made to feel welcome whenever they visit.  We arrange events which are based around the resident, their families and friends.

Home from Home
Grafton Lodge is our residents home and although staff have a job to do, we never forget that we are guests in their home.

Choosing a residential care home
It’s a major decision, perhaps one of the most important you will ever make.

That’s why we encourage you to contact us at the earliest opportunity to discuss your requirements in depth. Have a look around, meet the staff and some of the residents and their relatives, check out the facilities and get to know what the home is all about.

Positive feedback from visitors
One of the comments we hear a lot from visitors is “this home has a lovely atmosphere” and we endeavour to maintain a happy and relaxed atmosphere at all times.

Come for Lunch
We have found a good introduction to the home is to come with your relative for lunch before you make any decision.

Respite
Another useful way to introduce your relative to the home is for them to come for a few days respite.

We will be delighted to arrange a convenient appointment to show you around Grafton Lodge. If you are looking for a superb residential or dementia care home in Medway, Kent, then Grafton Lodge is ideal.
