Sherborne Lodge opened its doors on Friday 8th June in Yeovil.
Sherborne Lodge offers a flexible care service to local people combining the benefits of a care home and home based care, all within one building. MP, David Laws opened the new facility alongside The Mayor of Yeovil. A ribbon was cut and a special plaque was unveiled by the MP.
The facility offers both those who receive or provide care the opportunity to take a break or simply have a rest in a friendly and relaxed environment. Clients can spend anything from one hour to 24 hours at Sherborne Lodge which has living and sleeping facilities complete with professional care staff on hand.
In conjunction with the Alzheimer’s Society and the acclaimed Dementia Services Development Centre at Stirling University, Sherborne Lodge has been designed with the latest facilities and equipment to help care for the individual needs of dementia sufferers. What was a dilapidated building is now transformed into a vibrant and well equipped day and night care centre.
Sherborne Lodge is decorated and furnished in a way that is sympathetic to people living with dementia and designed the surroundings to enhance quality of life and cognitive ability. From tactile boards to paintings, therapies to a snoozelum (a room that uses light therapy to relax clients).
Sherborne Lodge is located to the rear of Sherborne House Care Home at 131 Sherborne Road, Yeovil.
