Sonya Lodge Residential Care Centre is a residential Home with a warm and welcoming atmosphere, providing specialist Dementia care for residents.

Located in the quiet Kentish village of Wilmington, residents can enjoy secure, private accommodation with all modern amenities.

There are 37 single rooms, most of which have en-suite facilities. There are four comfortable lounges – including the “blue lounge”, the “red lounge”, the “fireside lounge”, and a TV lounge which opens onto a peaceful garden with flowerbeds and outdoor seating. The “red lounge” doubles up as a movie-screening room. Other amenities include a spacious dining area, an old-fashioned shop selling treats and toiletries, and an onsite Hair Salon.

Sonya Lodge is regularly visited by professionals such as a Chiropodist, an Optician, Specialist Nurses and a Speech Therapist. Socialising is an essential part of daily life at Sonya Lodge and there is always plenty going on – including visits from entertainers, group singsongs and summer barbecues.
