Luxury Dementia Care Home
Our home has been re-designed and refurbished specially to provide the highest quality dementia care with innovative concepts and facilities to give enjoyment, interaction and stimulation to our residents . Offering 40 bedrooms designed with their needs in mind.
Our staff are trained in dementia care and have taken part in the ground- breaking virtual tour.
The care we offer is person- centred to ensure the needs of each individual in our care is suited to their own needs, rather than somebody else’s.
Our activity co-ordinator ensures that meaning and relevant activity is a daily occurrence at Newfield Lodge much of which will revolve around reminiscence activities.
Memory stations are situated throughout so that families can support their loved ones and encourage them to live in the moment that they are in whilst embracing the memories that they have.
Our care team at Newfield Lodge value each resident and work with residents friends and families to build lasting relationships and ensure they have as much time as they require to meet our residents needs.
Newfield Lodge benefits from a previous conversion which provided it with extremely large bedrooms and en-suite facilities.

I strongly believe that everyone should be treated with respect, dignity and as an individual to meet their care needs. I have the skills and compassion needed to recognize each resident’s needs and create a care plan to incorporate these needs.
