Welcome to Castleford Lodge Care Home

A specialist residential care, nursing care, and dementia care home in Castleford, West Yorkshire.

Rated ‘Good’ by our regulator CQC, Castleford Lodge Care Home is located close to the centre of Castleford, offering services for residential and elderly as well as those with dementia who require more specialist care.

Many of the residents who reside at our home have lived in and around Castleford all their lives, coming from surrounding towns like Pontefract, Featherstone and Knottingley. Living at our care home ensures that they continue to play in local community life. We pride ourselves on providing a family atmosphere which is mirrored by some of our staff members placing their own relatives in Castleford Lodge.

Our friendly and helpful staff are a great asset to the home and over the years they have built strong relationships with nearby hospitals, social care teams and the local community. We welcome visits from local schools and community groups and are often going on day trips exploring the many wonders of Castleford and the surrounding area.

Residents enjoy spending time outdoors in our picturesque and secure gardens taking short walks and relaxing. When residents aren’t outdoors, they can be found in the communal lounge getting involved in one of the many activities the team arranges or spending time with family and friends.

“My mum has recently moved here from a residential home. I was very worried about how the move would affect my mum who’s 94. All I can say is that the manager and all staff have been wonderful and very supportive of not only my mum but myself and my family.

I am astounded at the change I have seen in my mum. She seems so much more settled. Her room is beautiful. Although we are new to this home, she seems to be thriving. What I can say from the short time my mum's been here, the care she is receiving is excellent. Thank you from a very grateful daughter.”

Meet the Manager

I am Cristina Rachita the manager at Castleford Lodge. I came to the north of England in 2013 and recently became a mother for the first time. I have worked locally as a carer and as a nurse in local hospitals including Pinderfields. I gravitated to elderly care because I wanted to build relationships with residents that made a difference to them and their families. I love our home and the staff we have, some of whom have been here over 15 years! People come to Castleford Lodge and tend to stay as they like the family atmosphere. I think that kind of continuity is important. I am passionate about building a real community, something that residents are proud to call home.
