Aveley Lodge Care Home

Where care comes first

Welcome to Aveley Lodge, an award-winning, first-class care home offering an excellent standard of care within a superb setting and rated “Good” by the Care Quality Commission (CQC). We hope the information on our website will give you an insight into how we operate and provide the high-quality care for which we are best known.

Aveley Lodge revolves around our five key principles of care. These principles are central to all that we do throughout every interaction between the staffing team, those residing here as well as those visiting our beautiful home. The five key principles are, Dignity, Respect, Independence, Information and Choice. We here at Aveley Lodge feel that you can only have personal choice if it is an informed choice, only then can we ensure that individuals feel involved and empowered to live as independently as possible. By ensuring all those living within Aveley Lodge are offered informed choice, we can promote their independence and in turn deliver care which treats all with absolute dignity and respect.

We welcome all individuals to experience our stunning landscaped garden which hosts an abundance of wildlife and offers uninterrupted views across the Roman Valley and onto Donyland Woods. By having the garden professionally designed and built, we have been able to create a fabulous environment which can be accessed and enjoyed by all, from our summer house and carefully selected sensory plants to the koi fish pond.

Here at Aveley Lodge, we are very passionate about the level of care that we provide to our residents. Every year we conduct an in-house satisfaction survey with all our residents and their relatives. We are pleased to confirm that we received 100% positive feedback and was rated “Outstanding” in our 2018, 2019 and 2021 surveys. But don’t just take our word for it, explore our website and see for yourself why so many people are happy to call Aveley Lodge home.
