We provide 24-hour nursing care alongside expert care for those with Dementia in our Memory Lane Community. We also provide care for younger people with a physical disability and respite and palliative care. Our team of qualified and dedicated staff ensure that all residents receive professional, respectful and personalised care.

A sense of belonging is crucial to a persons well-being, so regardless of the complexity of their needs we strive to ensure residents value being part of the Kingfisher Lodge community and we value them. Kingfisher Lodge has been designed with this in mind, which is why you will get the feel of home-from-home when you walk around.

At Kingfisher Lodge we believe freedom of choice is paramount to everyone that stays with us.

Along with the beautiful garden overlooking the scenic Kelston Round Top our lounges make ideal spaces to catch up with a loved one.

Manager's quote

Hi, my name is Clare and I am the General Manager here at Kingfisher Lodge.

Before joining Barchester, I worked in the NHS for 30 years as a qualified Mental Health Nurse. More recently, I moved into the private sector as a Nursing Home Manager.

My career has mainly been in adult nursing, working with the elderly who have complex mental health needs. In 2015, I moved into the private sector , where I managed a successful nursing home for 44 residents, providing specialist care services for older people in need of support due to physical illnesses or for those living with dementia, in addition to end of life care.

I am proud to have had such a rewarding career. Professionally, I am proud of my continued achievements and determination to always strive for excellence, which is proven in my previous home's 'Outstanding' CQC report.
