Welcome to Lofthouse Grange & Lodge Care Home
A specialist residential, dementia residential and short term respite care home in Wakefield.
Rated ‘Good’ by our regulators the CQC, Lofthouse Grange & Lodge provides an excellent standard of care for all our residents. Lofthouse Grange & Lodge is a modern, recently refurbished home designed with the comfort, privacy and independent lifestyle choices of residents in mind.
The home is made up of two units, Lofthouse Grange is a 24-hour residential care unit with 31 beds and Lofthouse Lodge provides around the clock dementia care to 57 residents.
All bedrooms are en-suite and are spacious and comfortable, with up-to-date amenities such as access to WiFi. Each room is decorated to high standards and we encourage people to personalise their own rooms with pictures and familiar pieces of furniture.
Our passionate, experienced staff provide person-centred care for people with different levels of dementia, as well as stroke, diabetic and end of life residents. All our staff have completed specialist dementia training and are Dementia Friends, ensuring all residents are treated with the respect and dignity they deserve and can continue to live life to the full with compassionate support.
Several communal areas offer additional space for our residents to either spend time together with friends and relatives, or to take part in a wide variety of activities, such as exercise sessions, weekly coffee mornings, games, quizzes or creating memory boxes. Our home is within close proximity to local shops and we regularly meet with community groups, go on day trips or welcome visitors into the home. We enjoy outdoor space in a large green garden, which is tended by some of the residents who have a keen interest in gardening, allowing them to continue life as they lived it before moving to Lofthouse.
Types of Care provided
“Mum has been so much more happier since moving into Lofthouse Grange, the staff have been marvellous, especially during the COVID pandemic. We have had no issue what so ever and have every confidence that Mum is being cared for by a wonderful and dedicated team. We have regular video chats which always put a smile on Mum's face. All in all we can't fault Lofthouse and the care it provides.”

I have sat on many steering groups, written publications and won 6 national awards in dementia care and others areas over the years.

I am passionate about caring for older people and believe that good, person-centred care is reflected in the positive outcomes achieved for each resident.
