Each bedroom is individually decorated and all rooms have either en-suite facilities or a washbasin.  We encourage you to personalise your bedroom as much as possible and if you wish, bring in your own furniture to help retain your life memories and experiences.

Each room is fitted with its own front door key, a nurse call system and includes a TV/DVD/Video and telephone points.

We have no visiting restrictions at Wisteria Lodge.

Food is fantastic and plentiful at Wisteria Lodge.  Locally sourced produce cooked by a qualified cook.  Special diets are sympathetically catered for, particularly those addressing diabetes.

Meals may be enjoyed in the dining room or in the privacy of your own room.

Life With us

We aim to help fulfil all of our residents’ needs and wishes through a carefully planned and mutually agreed upon plan of care.

This personal care plan will help promote and maintain fulfilment and independence

Assistance will be given where needed; however privacy, dignity and individual choice will be respected.

We will embrace new ideas and requests.  The philosophy of the home encourages previous carers and loved ones to engage in continued support and to that ends all facilities will be available.  Family and friends will be welcomed to Wisteria Lodge with refreshments upon arrival.  If your loved ones wish to stay for lunch then they are very welcome to do so – however, book early to avoid disappointment!

Maintenance of previous links, hobbies and interests outside of the home are encouraged.
