Our Mission Is to Provide a Happy, Safe, & Relaxed Home for our Senior Citizens
Cherry Lodge is a private care home in Caterham, Surrey offering an individual and specialised approach to care for the elderly.
Cherry Lodge was established by Mrs Cherie Calender, the Home’s Registered Manager, in October 1988 and has provided a high level of personal care for its residents in a relaxed and comfortable setting for over 32 years.
The home is set within a charming Edwardian house within easy reach of the M25 and A22 and offers residents a wide range of facilities and home comforts. The home offers both long term and respite care services and we are able to accommodate 19 full time residents.
Our team work to make a difference in our residents
Our people – whether they work in management or maintenance, or our lifestyle or catering teams – love making a difference to residents’ lives. Each of us knows that a friendly chat here and a kind word there can change a person’s day for the better. Come and meet some of our colleagues.
Hobbies & Activities
The Home has an Activities Organiser who encourages and supports our residents to continue to enjoy their hobbies and interests for as long as they are able or wish to do so. There are also group projects arranged for those who wish to take take part in and enjoy the theme project they decided to choose.
The services of opticians, hairdresser and chiropodist along with health care professionals visit the Home on a regular basis. The Home is supported by Townhill Surgery but you may choose to continue with your own GP if the surgery permits and you are within their catchment area.
No restrictions on visiting to either see a friend or to view the home. Cherry Lodge operate an open door policy and visitors are welcome to pop in at any time to look around, meet the staff and residents.
Daily life is relaxed and informal and visitors are able to call in at any time to see relatives and friends. Residents choose what time they would like to have their breakfast in the morning and retire at the end of the day.
A church service takes place in the home once a month for those wishing to take part, and a local newsagent will be able to deliver your choice of reading.
Opticians, hairdresser and chiropodist as well as health care professionals, visit the Cherry Lodge on a regular basis. Each resident will be given an Individualised Service Plan to ensure the level of care needed is always provided. We talk to the resident and their family about likes and dislikes, hobbies, their former career, and other personal preferences. Care Plans are reviewed regularly and updated as needed so the care always reflects the resident’s current needs, even as it changes.
Day Care enables families to have a break from caring for the day, knowing their loved ones are in good hands. It gives an opportunity to join others for a meal, have an assisted bath or take advantage of the facilities offered by visiting professionals e.g. hairdressers.
The Home offers Respite Care providing they have a bed available to cover a holiday period for the carers. It can also be used to allow people to adjust to daily living with support following a stay in hospital before returning home.
Activities & Events
Life is generally relaxed and informal at Cherry Lodge, but we have an activities organiser who encourages and supports our residents to continue to enjoy their hobbies and interests. She will also facilitate group projects among the residents, enabling them to take charge of events such as outings and fétes, or competitions among themselves. A church service takes place in the home once a month for those wishing to take part
