Dementia Care Specialist

Philosophy: 'Live Well Whatever Your Need'

Grove Lodge is an art deco style country house built in 1936. Originally commissioned by two art enthusiasts, the home was designed to make the most of natural light with large casement windows and high ceilings. Converted some years later and now accommodates up to 22 residents. Set in grounds of 18 acres of attractive countryside with stunning views towards the south coast and the Hardy Monument.

The environment at Grove Lodge is informal and the care structured to individual needs.

Grove Lodge is a registered residential care home providing care for older people and those living with dementia. The home is situated approximately five miles from Dorchester town centre on the A37, just above the village of Frampton, and set in extensive grounds with wonderful peaceful views, a Bluebell Wood with prolific wildlife including deer, foxes, badgers and rabbits. 24- hour care is provided, enabling residents to call a member of staff at a moment's notice.
