Welcome to Downshaw Lodge Care Home
You'll find Downshaw Lodge in the market town of Ashton-under-Lyne, which lies on the north bank of the River Thame in Lancashire.
Here we provide high-quality care 24 hours a day. Residents have varying needs, from specialist support to general assistance with everyday living. Some stay with us permanently, others stay for short periods of time.
We offer specialist nursing care for individuals with dementia, and have a male-only dementia unit. We also offer respite care to give home carers a much needed break.
Residents can pursue their hobbies in communal and quiet lounges throughout the home. These areas are used for relaxing and socialising, and are great places to invite friends and families to when they visit.
Life at Downshaw Lodge Care Home
Our activities are tailored to what residents like, and we have a full and varied events calendar. Professional entertainers visit regularly, and there's always something going on, from quizzes to musical events.
We organise regular trips to local places of interest including the library, park and the museum, and we arrange special meal nights when we invite relatives and friends to come along.
As supporters of the UK National Dementia Strategy we help ensure key life skills are maintained, building purpose and providing nurture for those with dementia. We organise group and individual activities, but in our experience it's the one-to-one sessions that people find most calming and rewarding.
Mealtimes are an enjoyable and sociable part of the day. Each dining area has tables laid with fresh flowers and linen, and our menus are displayed to show the choices available. Snacks, fresh fruit and refreshments are provided 24 hours a day.
We have highly nutritious and varied menus, and cater for all dietary and cultural needs. All food is prepared using fresh ingredients every day in our kitchens. Depending on how they feel, each resident can choose to have their meals in their own room, or in our dining room. We encourage friends and family to join us for meals or afternoon tea any time.
The food is very good and if there is nothing on the menu I like an alternative is always offered. There are snacks and drinks available whenever I want one.
