Specialist Care Facilities

At the heart of Sycamore Care Centre is The Lodge, a beautiful 41-bed residential care facility and dedicated dementia care unit. The Lodge is surrounded by a number of purpose-built facilities, for specialist care services including Intermediate Nursing care and dementia.

Lounge / Social area

The Lodge not only offers luxury interior but it also offers a welcoming relaxing atmosphere perfect for those visiting their loved ones. Our lounges are perfectly thought of around image and refurbished and upgraded to suit the practice of modern care.

Dining Room

We keep noise and bustle to a minimum, avoiding any distractions that may be off-putting. Meal times are kept as relaxing as possible so that residents can enjoy their meal and eat at their own pace. We love it when relatives join their loved ones for meals too. Residents are welcome to play a part in preparing for meals, while offering a dining experience that enables residents to maintain their independence and dine with dignity.
