Eliza Lodge Nursing Home

Eliza Lodge is a purpose built care home in a peace-full country side location.
There is an internal courtyard which offers our residents secure gardens to stroll in. 
At  Eliza, we believe we have to deliver more than health care, we have to provide a person centered environment where independence, choice and individuality are promoted and residents are both mentally and physically stimulated on a daily basis.
We aim to enhance the quality of life and Personal Independence of our residents with the care we provide

As we expect people to treat Eliza Lodge as their home we do not have set visiting hours.
People are encouraged and free to visit residents at Eliza Lodge at times which best suit the individual person

Our mission is to continually improve our service and continually raise the bar of what we are expected to deliver.
We provide the support and assistance required to maintain independence, dignity and respect.
We promote and provide a warm and friendly home from home environment where people have choice in their daily routines.
