Astbury Lodge

Welcome to Astbury Lodge

Astbury Lodge is a purpose-built home set within spacious grounds approximately one mile from Ellesmere Port town centre. It caters for 41 residents and has one specialist household, The Poppies, which provides care for people with dementia.

Astbury Lodge has 40 single bedrooms and one double bedroom. We also have rooms with en-suite facilities. All rooms are comfortable and spacious and have television points.

All areas within Astbury Lodge are now smoke-free, including the lounges, each of which offers a different atmosphere. Several lounges offer the choice of a television and DVD player, whilst others offer an opportunity to relax quietly, whilst maybe reading a book. At least one of the lounges is fitted with a hearing loop, a discreet device to improve sound reception and aid those with hearing difficulties. There are several dining rooms where meals are served, or residents can opt to eat in their own rooms if they prefer. The rooms, dining rooms and lounges in The Poppies include special design features to compensate for disability and aid residents’ ability to find their way around easily. The garden to the rear of Astbury Lodge has been renovated by The Princes Trust, who chose Astbury Lodge for their community project. It benefits from a greenhouse, bird feeders and a number of quiet areas where residents can sit whilst enjoying the elements. The front patio and side garden are great places to sit and unwind in the summer whilst enjoying the bird and plant life.

A number of services are available to residents. For example, a hairdresser visits on a weekly basis; newspaper and magazine deliveries are arranged with a local newsagent. There is a separate charge for these services, which is charged to residents on a weekly basis. There is also a shop / trolley service is available for items such as greeting cards, confectionery and personal toiletries.

We have an activities co-ordinator who arranges a wide choice of activities, according to residents’ interests. These include weekly activities such as carpet bowls, bingo, quizzes, The Big Film and local outings within walking distance, as well as other events which take place monthly such as a mobile library, memory box, external entertainers and Sunshine Singers.

Astbury Lodge operates the 'Marvellous Mealtimes' initiative and aims to make meals as pleasant and positive an occasion as possible. We offer a varied and wholesome diet, and cater for any special dietary requirements. In addition, we cater for social events and special occasions and at the request of residents or their relatives, we organise larger parties such as big family celebrations.

A Church of England service is held monthly at Astbury Lodge and a Roman Catholic priest visits on request. There are a number of local churches within a five mile radius, which are attended by residents.

Astbury Lodge is a five minute walk away from a selection of local shops, and the village library is a ten minute walk away. There are also two garden centres within easy walking distance, both of which have tea shops to enjoy. By car, Cheshire Oaks retail outlet village is just ten minutes away and 15 minutes will take you to Chester Zoo or the famous Ness gardens, renowned for its rhododendrons. We are a 25 minute drive away from Liverpool and the Albert Dock.

Testimonials

My mother has been residing at Astbury Lodge for approximately 18 months now and during this time I have always felt that she has been well looked after and cared for by the friendly staff at the home who seem to have a genuine regard and concern for their residents. Astbury Lodge has recently had a change of management and now has a manager who has had hands on experience for the caring of residents and therefore has a good insight as to what residents need and what will improve their quality of life. Following this change I've noticed that there has been initially some small and simple improvements at the home with bigger ones on the horizon and I believe that these changes are making and will make the home a better place to be, as I visit everyday and talk to many of the staff I get the feeling that everyone is fully behind these improvements and are looking forward to a bright future.

Testimonials
