Care Home York | The Lodge

The Lodge EMI Residential Care Home provides outstanding accommodation and care for our residents.

We are situated in the quiet village of Heslington, York with local facilities all to hand.

Dementia-related conditions are becoming more prevalent in society today. That does not mean people who have them shouldn’t continue living a full and active life. At The Lodge, we have developed “Memory Lane” to ensure having dementia doesn’t get in the way of an active life.

Within our ’Memory Lane’ ethos, our highly qualified staff ensure each individual is given the personalised care and attention they need. Whilst those needs vary, our fundamental services always remain consistent.

  • We create a home-like feel where people are helped to recall happier times with familiar decorations in their rooms and memory boxes filled with their personal items to rummage in.
  • We adapt environments to meet our people’s needs. This includes special crockery, tableware and kitchens, alongside enclosed sensory gardens with low risk walkways.
  • We provide care that supports people’s freedom of choice and develops their life-skills and self-esteem, helping maintain and develop their independence.
  • We ensure individuals feel comfortable and safe in their surrounding environment, helping ensure they live life with dementia rather than just ’exist’ with it.
  • Night Owl club offering activities and food for residents who are awake at night.
  • Reminiscence therapy.

With 28 comfortable and well-appointed rooms (including 2 doubles), you’ll soon feel right at home at The Lodge.

Each room has personalised styling and we’d love you to bring your treasured mementos and small items of furniture to make it even more homely.

Relaxing couldn’t be easier with our comfortable lounge and sitting rooms. We have a day room used by residents and their families as well as a multi-sensory room for those in the later stages of their illness.

If you prefer the outdoors you’ll find numerous peaceful and quiet sitting areas within the garden with tables, chairs and sunshades and also an indoor garden so you can enjoy the outdoors all year round.

Meal times are something to savour at The Lodge, especially with the fine cuisine served up by our Chef. You can look forward to meals freshly prepared in fine Yorkshire tradition and served in our dining room or your own room - whichever you prefer.

If you have any special dietary requirements, don’t worry - we’ll be happy to cater for them.

We want your life with us to be as enjoyable and care free as possible.

Our staff are highly qualified and will be on duty should you need help at any time of the day or night. All of our staff are committed to maintaining your dignity and independence and providing you with high standards of personal care in a supportive friendly and homely atmosphere.

You’ll have the reassurance of our central nurse call system to immediately summon a member of staff should you ever need any assistance.

We are passionate about our commitment to excellence and as such our aim is to provide person centred and compassionate care to every one of our clients.

The Lodge offers a full range of activities for our residents including:

  • Craft groups
  • Cards and games
  • Quizzes
  • Outdoor trips and walks
  • Countryside outings in the local minibus

You can take part in as many of our planned activities as you wish or the manager will even create new activities tailored to suit your own hobbies and interests if you’d like.

It is our AIM that those who live in The Lodge should do so with dignity, have the respect of those who support them and be entitled to live a full and active life, given the fundamental right to self-determination and individuality.

We really hope you’d like to make your home with us at The Lodge so here’s what we suggest:
