Welcome to Woodcot Lodge Care Home
Woodcot Lodge Care Home is a newly-built care home located in a quiet residential part of Gosport, Hampshire. It's been designed specifically for the needs of residents, and provides high quality facilities for those requiring, nursing, dementia care or nursing, respite care, or end-of-life care.
Our compassionate, fully trained team works hard to make everyone feel at home. Our bright and sunny bedrooms have been tastefully decorated to a high standard, and some have views of the garden. All are wheelchair accessible, and fitted with motion sensors which alert the care team of any movement once residents have gone to bed.
At Woodcot Lodge Care Home, residents are considered part of the family. We put their health and happiness at the heart of everything we do, and our dedicated team of nurses and carers actively encourage residents to take part in all decisions - contributing to everything from the way their rooms look to the therapies they receive.
Life at Woodcot Lodge Care Home
Our activities team organises group and one-to-one activities tailored to residents' needs and abilities. These include art and crafts, music therapy, animal therapy, quizzes, and visits from professional entertainers.
All are completely optional and, for those who wish to take part, we display a programme around the home and in our newsletter.
Meals are served in our beautiful dining rooms, or residents can choose to eat in their room if they wish. We cater for celebrations such as birthdays and anniversaries.
My mother has been a resident for 2 years and always has been treated with respect and loving kindness. The home is always kept very very clean and the grounds are next to none. Staff are always friendly and cheerful and have always remarkable patience. I would recommend the care home to any person who is looking for good care and a happy environment.
My mother came to Woodcot for end of life care. I have nothing but praise for all the staff; their kindness and respect for their residents is outstanding and their involvement of family in the care planning is just right.
I have visited my mother practically every day since she came to Woodcot a few weeks ago and on every single occasion, I have been completely satisfied and happy to see my mother in their care. It has been a great comfort to me to know that there are people here who will take the time for the little things that matter such as holding the hand of someone old, confused and very ill or doing their hair or just sitting and talking with them.
I cannot rate Woodcot Lodge, its management and its staff high enough.
Overall this home is catering for all my mums needs. y mum and all the residents are treated with respect and dignity. The care staff are wonderful and most go that extra mile to make residents happy. The management could become more involved and make themselves know more to family etc, otherwise the best I could find near my area and at goof value compared to other rates.
Our Mother came in for urgent respite care after a fall, it was arranged quickly, the staff were very welcoming to mum and the family.
The care she has received is great the girls are friendly but get on with what they need to do. They have been very encouraging and helpful with getting mum up and about again.
The rooms are clean and pleasant to be in, and Mum says the meals are good and plentiful.
Anyone who has done it, will say that to place a loved one in a care home is very traumatic for all. My mum is no exception, after viewing many, many home we chose Woodcot Lodge and they have given her all the patience, care and time to settle in.
I know that all the staff are excellent in their jobs and I have been fully informed of everything that has taken place with my mums care, well being and her dignity. I would have no problem with recommending them to any of my friends.
I recommend this home because my mother has been here for 2 and a half years and for all of that time she has been shown care and dignity and above all love by all the carers. Yes it has had problems but there has been a shake up FOR THE BETTER, keep up your good work.
The home is ideal, my room is comfortable. It is clean and welcoming. Staff are lovely. The food is good. I like living here.
We would definitely recommend this home to anyone that needs the nursing care element of Woodcot Lodge. We cannot comment on the other two floors as we only deal with the first floor. We have found that all the staff are very efficient and polite, and are willing to help not only the residents but their relatives also. We can say that the meals are varied and well presented. The cleanliness of the home is also great.
I have found the home to be very good. From what I have seen it is very clean with good meals. The staff are very friendly and approachable, keep up the great work.
My Uncle was resident on the Residential Dementia floor for several years until he passed. The staff showed compassion at all times and listened to any concerns. The home is very welcoming from the moment you walk in.

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!
