Our reassuring response to Coronavirus:

We are pleased to say that our home is Covid-free. As such, viewings may take place, and new residents are able to move in safely. We are pleased to enable garden visits for our current residents and their families and friends.

Our kind and compassionate care team has completed bespoke Covid-19 training and our extra precautionary infection prevention and control measures means that we are operating very safely to best protect those we care for.

We continue to follow all Government guidelines and have an ongoing supply of PPE. Covid-19 testing kits are available in addition to the testing already completed, and we regularly monitor the general health of everyone in our home to ensure a good, person-centred service.

Your Care in Our Hands

Leatherland Lodge is a 48 bed, purpose built home situated in Thurrock, Essex. This spacious home provides expert care for older people, including those living with dementia.

We strive to create a homely environment at Leatherland Lodge, and we provide all the comforts of good food, good company and friendly staff, in a calm and restful atmosphere. All of the bedrooms are beautifully furnished, most with en-suite bathroom facilities and the home has excellent amenities, including comfortable lounges in which residents can relax. In addition, we have a dedicated area for dementia care, designed to enable those we care for to maintain their independence in a safe environment.

Our activity programme ensures that residents remain stimulated and engaged and our activity coordinators take into account resident’s hobbies, needs and interests. These activities include;

  • Bingo and quizzes
  • Exercises
  • Pamper days
  • Fine dining evenings
  • Cooking sessions

The activities at Leatherland Lodge are varied and, alongside enjoying themselves, residents can receive a wide range of health and fitness benefits from taking part.

We now have a themed tea room at Leatherland Lodge designed to enable residents, families and friends to meet in a relaxing, old fashioned tea room environment, and enjoy a day out experience without leaving the home.

Our activity coordinators seek out and listen to residents who may have hobbies or pastimes, in addition to arranging a whole variety of activities and entertainment to stimulate all residents.

If you are unable to visit, we will arrange for a staff member to call on you at your home or other place of your choosing at your convenience.  We hope to see you soon! 



Tea Room

Leatherland Lodge's Tea Room has a vintage theme, designed to appeal to our residents. The Cafe has a homely and welcoming environment and our residents really enjoy entertaining family and friends here when they visit. Some residents even choose to make their loved ones tea and coffee, just as they would do at home, giving them a sense of responsility and reward to host for their guests. In addition to entertaining visitors, our residents also enjoy regular coffee mornings in the cafe, as it provides the perfect place to socialise.

What our clients have to say about us


I visited my cousin this month and I was delighted to meet the new manager who was most supportive of the needs of my cousin who is almost 95 and has had a recent spell in the hospital which has upset her and has exacerbated her confusion. She is being well cared for and the staff are keeping me informed every step of the way which is a comfort to me because I live in Scotland.
