Harrowby Lodge is a 28 bed family owned and managed care home situated close to Grantham town centre in a select residential area. The home was originally a gracious Victorian family home which over the years has been tastefully extended to provide a homely, family atmosphere for our residents.
Harrowby Lodge was established in 1987, during that time we have acquired a dedicated team of staff, many of whom have been with us for over ten years. We have been fortunate in never having to use agency staff, which is a real benefit to our residents.
The home has a large conservatory which opens out onto an attractive patio area with a water feature which attracts birds and nesting ducks in the spring, beyond we have a large well stocked garden, home to a host of wildlife. St Wulframs church spire can be seen and looks splendid lit up at night.
All of our bedrooms are light, airy and tastefully furnished to maintain a homely feel. As well as the conservatory, we have a television room, quiet room and a dining room. All of our meals are home cooked and menus are discussed regularly with our residents, a varied choice is available and we cater for special diets.
Activities take place five days a week as well as a “highlight activity” once a month, these can be viewed on our blog. We encourage family and friends to join us in activities and events to feel part of the home, an open invitation to lunch is extended to spouses who are always made most welcome. We work with residents and families to celebrate special events to make them memorable.
Harrowby Lodge has attained the Gold Standards Framework award for End of Life Care, this is a prestigious award and recognises our commitment in ensuring our residents end their lives in the manner in which they would want and where they want. We aim at all times to treat our residents with respect and dignity and assist them to retain control of their lives and make choices about their care and well-being. Choosing a care home is a very difficult time for all concerned, here at Harrowby Lodge we recognise this and will do everything possible to make the transition as welcoming and comforting as we can, fresh flowers in your bedroom, a welcoming tray of tea and a friendly face always helps.
