Our dedicated staff are headed by a registered manager, who has many years of experience in caring for the elderly.

Our managers provide hands-on supervision to maintain our tradition of excellence.

All Staff are DBS checked and trained to an appropriate level, many with NVQ qualifications. Training is sponsored by the company as part of an on-going commitment to training and retaining high quality staff.

Physiotherapy, Chiropody, Dentists and Opticians are all available on request. Local clergy of all denominations are encouraged to visit on a regular basis and can also be arranged on request. The home is visited by hairdressers and a range of complimentary therapies can be arranged on request at your own cost. Accommodation is fully inclusive of laundry.

Our trained chefs prepare a wide range of home cooked food using fresh local produce. The choice is based on traditional recipes and daily alternatives are provided at every meal time. Special diets are also catered for. A full programme of activities is available to our residents, tailored to their needs and abilities.

The home welcomes guests funded by Social Services and those who are privately paying clients. This home is inspected and accredited by CQC, in accordance with statutory government regulation. Afton Lodge also currently holds a five star PQR rating, which is an independent quality assurance mark and is also recognised as Investors in People.
