About Chippendayle Lodge Care Home
Chippendayle Lodge Care Home near Ashford is situated in the small, picturesque village of Harrietsham close to the town of Maidstone and its amenities. We provide services for residential care and dementia care. We have 48 single bedrooms and 2 double bedrooms for those wishing to share, with most bedrooms having en-suite facilities. Within Chippendayle Lodge there is a separate 6 bedroom wing which caters for residents without dementia and provides long-term care, short-term care and respite care is also available, subject to the home having a vacancy at the time.
Chippendayle Lodge provides a safe and homely environment where our aim is to provide clients with a good quality of life whilst in our care. We understand how important privacy and dignity is to our residents: all members of our staff team are respectful of this and realise how important it is to the people entrusted to our care. At Chippendayle Lodge we believe life history is an invaluable tool, which can be used to tailor care for each individual. Our team works closely with all residents to ensure they receive care that is suited to their specific needs. Medical services are provided by local doctors and community nurses but clients can retain their own doctors when it is practical to do so. A hairdresser and chiropodist visit the home on a regular basis, and Holy Communion is held monthly for those who wish to take part.
Every member of our staff is dedicated to providing a high quality of care and is trained to a high standard. Our staff receive ongoing training to ensure their skills remain up to date, attending first aid, medication, fire awareness, adult protection, moving & handling, dementia care and many other relevant training courses on a regular basis. This helps us to ensure that a high standard of care is provided at all times.
Much of Chippendayle Lodge care home near Ashford is purpose-built, featuring large single bedrooms with en-suite facilities as well as two double bedrooms for couples. The home benefits from two large lounges, which are equipped with televisions for communal viewing and also two dining room areas which overlook the garden. All of our residents’ rooms are fitted with a nurse call alarm system for when clients require assistance, and a suite of furniture for the storage of clothes and other belongings. Chippendayle Lodge has several bathrooms equipped with hoists to aid residents into and out of the bath, as well as wet rooms for those who prefer to shower. The home has a large garden and patio area, which residents use during the warmer months of the year to enjoy the sunshine. We also organise activities to take place throughout the day, as well as regular outings in the local area.
Food & Drink
We offer all of our clients 3 meals a day (breakfast, lunch and high tea), as well as snacks and refreshments throughout the day. We offer a variety of dishes to choose from for each meal, with a seasonal menu that works on a 4-week cycle. All our food is freshly brought in, home-made and nutritionally balanced, which we feel is very important. Our menu's may vary slightly depending on the client's needs/likes. Please feel free to take a look at our Summer Menu.

My dad booked to move in as he has Alzheimer’s and living on his own was getting too much for him as I was worried he may have an accident. We read other reviews and went to have a look around. From the first meeting, the manager couldn’t have been more welcoming and went out her way to make my dad and myself feel at ease with the decision to take a place. Unfortunately, my dad went into hospital the day before the moving date but without any questions, the manager unpacked all his personal belongings ready for his arrival, this ended up being a few weeks later and dads condition had deteriorated over the weeks in hospital but he was still able to move in as planned. All the staff are friendly and handle dads sense of humour well, happy to give me regular updates on dads progress and health, dignity and personal care is carried out perfectly by all the staff and dad has settled in well, I’m sure this has a lot to do with the way the staff treat him and the regular cups of tea and biscuits on offer!

I have always been satisfied with the care my 99-year-old mother receives. However, my mum has recently been ill, and the management and staff have been wonderful, so caring and professional not only to my mum's needs but also to my brother and myself. So compassionate and understanding to our needs as family members. Thank you, Chipps; you are all amazing.
By J H (Son of Resident) 29/04/2021, Chippendayle Lodge Care Home Near Ashford
My father has been a resident at Chippendayle Lodge Care Home for the last two years. I have always been satisfied with the care he’s received. I am so grateful to all the staff, they have always gone that extra mile every day to make sure my father gets the care he needs. The lady who organises the activities works very hard organising games and window visits for the residents and has also arranged many online chat calls to take place between my father and myself.
By Ruth A (Daughter of Resident) 15/01/2020, Chippendayle Lodge Care Home near Ashford

By Sara B (Daughter of Resident) 14/11/2019, Chippendayle Lodge Care Home near Ashford
I cannot put into words my gratitude for the truly outstanding level of care my mum has received since moving into Chippendayle Lodge. It is clear at all times that staff care deeply about the residents on a highly individualised basis. Mum is always beautifully dressed, wearing makeup and her nails done and speaks highly and with real affection for the staff. Her room is comfortable and immaculately clean; the food goes down a treat and staff are always interacting with residents. I am a local GP so have plenty of experiencing visiting residential care homes and this one stands out. It is incredibly humbling to see this level of professionalism and care being delivered daily. A real home from home for Mum and somewhere we are always made to feel welcome as her family. Thank you again from all the family.
By H D (Daughter of Resident) 28/10/2019, Chippendayle Lodge Care Home near Ashford
Mum is always treated with dignity and respect at all times. The staff are extremely caring and nothing is ever too much trouble. It's very clean and never smells as some homes do. Food is extremely nice and again, kitchen staff lovely. If someone asked what home to put a relative in, it would be here. Mum likes it here now and so are we, as a family, pleased she is so well looked after. They also support myself and my sister.
By W O (Sister of Resident) 17/09/2019, Chippendayle Lodge Care Home in Ashford
My sister, the resident in this care home settled well from day one. The staff are very caring and kind. The food is really excellent. If the need arises in the future, I have told my sons that I would be very happy to go there.
By Helen D (Daughter of Resident) 06/09/2019, Chippendayle Lodge Care Home Near Ashford
My mother had 10 weeks at this home due to me, her youngest daughter (carer), as I had major bowel surgery. My Mum and I looked around before we booked her in, and from day one the staff were polite and always had a smile, nothing was too much trouble. Carers are/were amazing, food excellent, well everything was fantastic. We would recommend this home to anyone. Management fantastic too, so a massive thank you.

By Anita F (Daughter of Resident) 26/02/2019, Chippendayle Lodge Care Home Near Ashford
My mother has been at Chippendayle Lodge now for 6 months. She has a lovely room overlooking the garden which is well maintained. The staff cannot do enough for her, if she requests any food or isn't happy with what is on offer on the day the kitchen will always make her something else. I visit the home regularly and I have always found the staff to be happy and very helpful.
By Jamelia H (Daughter of Resident) 25/02/2019, Chippendayle Lodge Care Home Near Ashford
My mum has been a resident of Chippendayle Lodge for the last year. All the staff are an absolute asset to the company as the care they give is top quality. Whatever concern or reassurance we have needed has always been met by the staff and we can not ask for more to be done knowing that our mother is in a loving and caring environment gives at peace at mind.
By Josh H (Son of Resident) 25/02/2019, Chippendayle Lodge Care Home Near Ashford
The staff at Chippendayle Lodge are polite, friendly and keep me up to date on how my dad is getting on. Dad's room is kept clean. There is a good atmosphere around the home. Activities take place regularly and there are several lounge areas for residents to relax in.
By Peter D (Brother-in-Law) 17/07/2017, Chippendayle Lodge Care Home Near Ashford
My brother-in-law has been happy for the past four years. Staff were very good and helpful. My brother-in-law looked on the home as his home and was very happy there. The food was very good.
By Sara R (Daughter of Resident) 30/06/2017, Chippendayle Lodge Care Home Near Ashford
My mother was admitted in Feb 2017 initially into their respite room and subsequently into a permanent room; she is well looked after and is gaining weight well as she likes the food provided. The staff are always very helpful whatever time I visit. The garden outside is much enjoyed now summer is here and gives an opportunity for more exercise and a topic for conversation. Chippendayle Lodge is the perfect place to look after mum and cope brilliantly with her complicated medical needs and daily care.
By Adrian B (Son of Resident) 28/03/2017, Chippendayle Lodge Care Home Near Ashford
The above home is exemplary. I cannot find fault. The staff (although underpaid) are brilliant, hardworking and friendly. The management (at the home) are proficient and helpful beyond measure.
By Jo W (Grand Daughter of Resident) 20/03/2017, Chippendayle Lodge Care Home Near Ashford
My nan has been living at Chippendayle Lodge for 8 months now and we have nothing but praise for the service! My nan has 'come alive' again! All standards are exceptionally high and it is like 'home away from home'. You can easily see that all the staff there including the chefs really care for the residents and it's not just a job. We as a family can not recommend this care home enough.
