What our clients have to say about us:
My mother was admitted to Orchard Lodge Care Home on 20/12/16 after a short stay in hospital. This home has a welcoming and homely atmosphere with friendly and extremely caring staff. The way they behaved towards my mother and our family made the transition to the home so much easier. My mother is very happy and contented, enjoying the activities and social interaction she did not have at home.
