Virtual Tour

  • "My Mother is happy at The Lodge. The standard of care is exceptional and staff are approachable, kind, and treat everyone with dignity and respect. The home has dealt extremely well during the COVID crisis, and has been a 'tower of strength'."

    Daughter of Resident

  • "From the day I contacted The Lodge, to the first visit, you [provided] great 'front of house' - smiley faces and a cheery hello. You will never know how reassuring that was. Thank you so much."

    Daughter of Resident

  • "I went to see my Mum two weeks ago. She looked well and just the same as before the lockdown. It was lovely to see her. Everything was so well organised and pleasant. Please pass on my thanks to everybody and of course, Sarah [Engagement Lead], who was present at the time."

    Daughter of Resident

  • "I would like to thank you very much for all the kindness, help & care you gave to Mum whilst she was with you, as well as the compassion shown to myself during Mum's last few weeks."

    Daughter of Resident

  • "Such a lovely place with beautiful bedrooms and communal living spaces. The nicest home we have seen so far!"


  • "I would like to express my heartfelt thanks for the amazing care that my husband received. We were so anxious when he was first admitted - would they take good enough care of him? Our fears were thankfully not realised. I visited daily and soon came to know of the true care and compassion routinely administered at The Lodge. Your care and compassion extended to myself, especially during my husband's last few weeks. The Lodge is a truly outstanding care home."

    Wife of Resident

  • "I would like to say a big thank you to you all for the care you took in looking after my Mother. Everyone was always very kind and understanding."

    Daughter of Resident

  • "Your approach to caring for people living with a dementia is refreshing and allows for the connection with the person. Within the family, dementia was becoming a barrier and you provided us with a better model of relating. We are learning from you!"

Our Staff

The Lodge has a select team of experienced care staff who have each undertaken bespoke training to meet the individual needs of the home's residents. The home provides appropriate ratios of staff both day and night, alongside a day-to-day care ethos that delivers highly-personalised care where dignity, freedom and privacy are consistently upheld. With an industry-envied training programme and ongoing support & development, B&M Care's guiding principles are what define our staff within the dementia care sector.
“My career within care started in 1989 when I was appointed the role of Care Assistant in a care home setting close to Potters Bar, Hertfordshire – an opportunity that led to my promotion to Assistant Manager in 1993. 1999 was a landmark in my category, one that saw me progress on to become Acting Home Manager, before being appointed a registered Home Manager in 2004. With a great number of years’ experience, I felt confident enough to apply for the same role at The Lodge in 2014 – one that to-date inspired me with a continual learning curve, and better fulfilled my passion for delivering person-specific residential and specialist dementia care.”
Lisa Pinner - Home Manager
“I transferred to The Lodge in 2014 as Deputy Manager after working at Ashlyns for 17 years. Throughout my career, training and development is a theme that is very close to me, and have since become the home’s point of contact for all ‘Moving and Handling’ training. I have achieved a number of qualifications, including the Registered Managers Award (RMA), as well as B&M Care’s in-house Management Development Pathway – an invaluable learning experience!”
Lorriane Lettis - Deputy Manager
“I started my career at B&M Care in 2011 when I was appointed the role of Senior Care Assistant. Having shown a great interest for dementia care and personal development alike, with the support of the home’s management team, I was promoted several times – most recently to Deputy Manager in 2018. In regards to my qualifications, I have an extensive portfolio that includes an NVQ Level 5 in Health & Social Care.”
Foluke Ogunewu - Deputy Manager
