Welcome to Pennine Lodge Care Home
You'll find Pennine Lodge in the Carlisle suburb of Harraby, Cumbria. Our experienced, qualified team offers a warm, comfortable and welcoming environment for each individual living here.
We provide care from general nursing to specialised support for people with dementia. We involve residents and, as far as possible, their families, in all care decisions. Each person has a named key worker and their own dedicated care plan. We work well with our local GP, and ensure great communication between every member of the team.
Our home is set in well-kept, landscaped grounds. There's also an enclosed garden with patio area where residents can sit out enjoying the fresh air.
Inside, there's a choice of spaces for residents to relax in or meet with friends and relatives. We have bright, spacious main lounges and dining areas, with views over the garden. We also have several quiet sitting rooms, and a library with a good selection of books. All bedrooms are tastefully decorated, and have en-suites. We love residents to personalise these spaces to make them feel more familiar and homely.
Life at Pennine Lodge Care Home
Our inviting dining areas are where our chef provides nutritionally balanced menus that are carefully prepared to ensure the best combination of nutrition and flavour for residents. The residents and families are consulted on their likes and dislikes and we cater for all dietary requirements.
We have onsite hairdressing facilities, with regular visits from an experienced stylist; plus complementary therapies that can be tailored to individual needs.
We encourage residents to follow hobbies and interests; however there is no pressure and each person is treated as an individual. Family and friends are welcome to visit at any time. Residents are free to enjoy the activities of the day or just enjoy a relaxing time watching TV or enjoying a chat over a cup of tea.
My mother has been a resident for 12 months. The care and support to her from all staff has been outstandingly good. This is an excellent care home.
My mother has been in Pennine Lodge for 6 months and I am very impressed with the home. As soon as you walk through the doors you get a good feeling about the place. The staff are friendly and hard working. My mother is well cared for and receives a lot of affection. I am so pleased to see her so happy.
My Father is one of the longest residents in Pennine Lodge he's been there since Nov 2012, during that time he has been looked after extremely well. There has been a few hiccups, but that's only due to staff, needing to know small things about his care plan which changes constantly, so difficult to monitor, even for me. I visit most days so am very knowledgeable about what happens in Pennine, and am very pleased with the level of care given to my father. I would highly recommend Pennine Lodge to anyone looking for care for their relative.
My Mum, being very poorly and nearing end of life has had better care and love shown then I could imagine. The team are amazing and show so much compassion, love, care. They see that I eat and take care of us both. Well done upstairs staff - Pennine Lodge.

As delayed transfers of care remain at record highs, how can we reduce unnecessary hospital stays for older people? That was the key question at an HSJ event held in association with Four Seasons Health Care.
The roundtable heard that the healthcare system often finds reasons not to deal with care home residents and looked at the success of an innovative collaboration between the NHS and care homes in Belfast.
With a collaborative approach between care homes and the NHS, older people are able to leave hospital and receive expert care, whilst assessing whether their long term future would be in their current home or a local care home. “The idea is that it would provide short term rehabilitation in conjunction with the two trusts in that area. The joint partnerships with the trusts I’ve worked with have just been amazing, and that’s what makes it work”, explained Janice Brown, Four Seasons’ regional manager for the Belfast and Newtownabbey area.
In addition to the improvements from a collaborative solution, South Eastern Health and Social Care Trust reported that the joint partnership approach of providing a bed in a care home reduced their yearly cost by more than half.

Residents, relatives and the care team at Pennine Lodge Care Home in Carlisle turned a nice shade of red as they worked together to raise money for Comic Relief.
Everyone partook in a number of activities including cycling to Bratislava (or as close as possible) with Regional Manager Daniel Cleough and Home Manager Debbie Seaton leading the charge.
Debbie Seaton explained: “The cycle ride started at 6am and was a fun and easy way to get fit and raise some cash. Resident Elizabeth Frankin sprayed her hair red and the other residents enjoyed a slice of Malteaser bunny cake with some afternoon tea. Everyone enjoyed themselves, and had some fun raising money for a good cause. However, I don’t think Daniel will want to ride a bike wearing a suit again.”

Remembrance Day is a time to remember and pay your respects to those who and fought for Queen and country in numerous wars spanning the decades.
In Carlisle, residents from Pennine Lodge Care Home knitted and crocheted poppies for people to wear in memory of the servicemen and women.
Debbie Seaton, Home Manager, said: “Our residents wanted to do something special to mark Remembrance Day. We linked up with the Co-Op Funeral directors and they helped us to sell the poppies with the proceeds going to veterans. It was lovely to see our residents helping a cause that’s close to their hearts.”
