About the property

Donaldson Lodge is supported living accommodation. It was built in 1930 and renovated in 1996. It consists of 12 en suite bedrooms which are unfurnished so you can bring your own furniture, giving it a real home from home ambiance.

We have dedicated staff who work together to provide a comfortable and safe environment. We provide two home cooked meals a day which are served in the communal dining room making meals a social event. Residents prepare their own breakfasts in one of the two pantries provided.

Residents gather in the conservatory most mornings to have a coffee and chat or take part in an activity with one of our volunteers. The garden is well kept and residents are encouraged to take part in the upkeep if gardening is a hobby they enjoy.

We have a visiting hairdresser, chiropodist and optician and we are within walking distance of the Station, Sainsbury's, local shops and the Post Office.

The house has a 24hr careline that offers reassurance for the time when staff aren’t on the premises.
