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 clients living with dementia. We have 48 single bedrooms, and 2 double bedrooms for those wishing to share, with most bedrooms having en-suite facilities. The home provides long-term and short-term care, and respite care is also available, subject to the home having a vacancy at the time.

Care

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.

Staff

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.

Facilities 

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.

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

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.
