Welcome to Grandville Lodge
Grandville Lodge is a beautiful 19 bedded residential care home close to the amenities of the coastal town of Leigh On Sea.
We pride ourselves on the high standards of care provided by our thoughtful and well trained team of staff, headed by our experienced and highly qualified Home Manager.
At Grandville Lodge, we offer a program of activities, these include, musical productions, visits from local playschool children, who will sing and do arts and crafts with residents, film evenings, animal therapy, gardening and arm chair Zumba . Our residents are free to join in any of these activities or to choose to have quiet time if they prefer. Families and friends are always made to feel welcome and quickly become part of the Grandville Lodge community. We work closely with local health professionals, GPs and District Nurses and have regular visits from a chiropodist and hairdresser. The meals provided are cooked in our own kitchens by our dedicated staff and we offer a constantly changing menu which uses fresh local produce. Afternoon tea is always a hot option, a variety of sandwiches and cake.
We offer a helping hand to those caring for a relative with dementia.
Registered with the Care Quality Commission, Grandville Lodge is a specialist dementia care home. Carers can be assured that their relative will be receiving the best possible care from staff that are trained and qualified to manage the needs of the dementia sufferer.
Respite care can be booked for a single stay of between 1 week and 6 weeks or multiple short breaks throughout the year. This ensures continuity of care and familiar surroundings for people returning to Grandville Lodge and helps for a relationship of trust and support to develop. Their respite service means that the transition from home to Grandville Lodge is dealt with thoughtfully and with the needs of the dementia sufferer in mind.
Grandville Lodge is a well equipped, welcoming and comfortable care home which is managed to the exacting standards expected of the Care Quality Commission. The staff are selected for their dedication and commitment to the care needs of the elderly and are trained specifically in dementia care.
The Home Manager, Hayley Warner, is always happy to meet with relatives to discuss their situation and ways in which the respite service or long term care can help a family. She can be contacted at Grandville Lodge on 01702 470976.
