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.

Four Seasons Health Care picked up three accolades on Tuesday 5th December 2017 at the Training Journal (TJ) Awards. Winning three categories meant that Four Seasons Health Care led the way, as they were the only organisation to win in multiple categories.
Who were the winners?
The Dementia Care Framework won the ‘Best Change Management Programme’, which is a fantastic achievement and further highlights the positive impact this is having on the lives of people living in Four Seasons homes with dementia.
The Judges commented: “We recognise Four Health Care work in the field of dementia care as innovative and thorough in its approach, being both effective and transformative. It had a bold vision that was well executed in a challenging environment.”
The Care Home Nursing Journal (CNJ), Four Seasons’ very own internal publication to develop nurse knowledge and share best practice won its category of ‘Best Organisational Development Programme'.
The Judges commented: “The design of this intervention, which on the surface appears very simple, completely meets the needs of the organisation and has had significant impact. A particular strength was that Four Seasons Health Care decided to make these resources freely available to anyone, making the impact even greater and is improving healthcare outcomes in care homes everywhere.”
Finally, Louise Morris the Care Home Assistant Practitioner (CHAP) Lead won the main award of the night and was crowned the ‘Learning and Development Professional of the Year’.
The Judges stated: “Louise has had a transformational impact, not only on the learning and development of staff at Four Seasons Health Care, but also on the well-being of residents. Through a review of an existing programme, Louise drove design and improvement which has had significant benefits through improved care, staff practice and confidence and commitment to their work and professional development.”
Congratulations to everyone on this fantastic achievement!
