"Mum was so pleased that she could continue to have her hair done at a proper hairdressing salon and it really helped her to settle in."
"The place is always tidy and the gardens beautifully tended. It looks and feels like a home."

Our Refurbishment Programme
Rusthall Lodge is able to reinvest most of our funds into the fabric and daily life of Rusthall Lodge; a major benefit of not being part of a corporate organisation. This means we are always looking at enhancing our comfortable, welcoming and safe home throughout the year. This ensures our residents have a pleasant place to live while our staff have a working environment that equally as pleasant to work in.
We are now at the end of our refurbishment programme. Since it started, we have re-appointed many of our bedrooms, added an additional ground floor, more intimate lounge to what was already in existence, created two additional bedrooms and created a small meeting room in the reception area for families to use.
We also took the opportunity to re-configure some of our office space and the nurse stations on each floor.
As part of the programme we also upgraded our fire alarm system and lighting throughout the Home and completed an upgrade to our IT and telephony provision.
There is still some work to do but there's light at the end of the tunnel. The concept behind the refurbishment programme has always had the resident's best interest at heart.
