Doddington Lodge is a home away from home, from the moment you walk in you are considered a friend, we are a real community. Friendships amongst our residents, families and the local community and the Doddington Lodge team is something we are very proud of.

The importance of friendships is one of the most important parts of our home. Doddington Lodge is a friendly, relaxed home where everyone is able to enjoy their own company as well as one another’s.  We believe that friendship helps promote happiness and mental wellbeing. Friendships bring out the very best in us, encourage us to try new things and are always there to share good times, young and old.

We organise many fun activities that everyone can get involved with whether that’s a sing along, arts and crafts or just simply helping each other with a crossword in the daily newspaper. Our team get involved too!

Throughout lockdown we have seen how incredibly important our community has been and the support has been unprecedented. ‘Friends of Doddington Lodge’ has provided a real sense of community spirit, with letters and messages of kindness. Residents have come together to celebrate special occasions, Birthdays, VE Day, Clap for Carers and many more memorable times over the last few months.

Friends, family and loved ones are always welcome once visits get back to normal. The team are always on hand to listen to your stories and to enjoy a cup of tea with. It is a privilege to be part of such a caring community and to build friendships that will last a life time.
