My mother moved to Shelly Beach Lodge almost three years ago and was happy in her new home right from the start. I appreciate the homey feel of the house and the bright caring manner of all the staff. Over the years I have found management and staff to be professional and open to communication, easy to talk with and very helpful. Meals, prepared on site, are varied and balanced. Residents are free to walk or sit in the lovely garden spaces outdoors.
Weekly mini-bus outings, dance sessions with a wonderful musician, regular exercise sessions and neighbourhood walks plus other activities all add to the enjoyment of living at Shelly Beach Lodge.
I feel confident that my mother's person wellbeing and healthcare need are being met and I am always promptly informed of any changes as they arise.
There is always a warm welcome at Shelly Beach Lodge and I am very pleased with the care offered there.

My mother was resident at Shelley Beach Lodge from 2010, until she passed away there in February 2016. At no stage during this time, did we as a family, ever have any concern for her security or welfare.
Shelley Beach Lodge is a boutique rest home, staffed with carers who make sure that’s its residents are looked after, just as though, they were still residing, in their family home. The atmosphere is superb and this contributes to a really good interaction between the residents.
Dementia, being a progressive illness, means the needs vary considerably from resident to resident. It was my observation over the years, that this was accurately measured by the staff and the resulting programmes were entirely appropriate, for each individual.
Communication to the family was excellent and I was always advised by immediate phone call, of any illness or change in her condition. Just prior to my mothers death, she required intensive nursing, this was given without question and with affection.
I can also confirm, that the claim in the Shelley Beach Lodge web page, in respect of the scope of the facility and entertainment provided, is accurate.
Therefore I don’t have any hesitation in recommending Shelley Beach Lodge to any family, faced with placing a loved one in such a facility.

RE: Randell Wilton Young

I am writing to acknowledge the wonderful team at Shelley Beach Lodge.

My dear brother-in-law Randell was fortunate indeed to spend his last few months in this caring facility. (April - Sept 2016).
It was evident from the first day that Randell was happy in his new environment and he made the transition from Claire House to SBL with ease.

Randell was able to play the piano and was encouraged to do so providing many happy times for all.
I can’t thank the team at SBL enough. They all go beyond their job descriptions providing not only incredible care & attention but also love.
I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending SBL to anyone needing a warm, loving environment for a family member with dementia.

Best regards
Ruth Bedford


My mother Sue Bulmer lived at Shelly Beach Lodge for more than four years, from September 2012, until she passed away recently (October 2016). My family and I were really pleased to find a small, specialist dementia unit with such superb caregivers. During her time at Shelly Beach Lodge Sue was cared for by wonderful, loving and skilled staff. I always felt that my mother was treated as an individual with dignity. The management is also excellent. The nurse manager, always responded promptly and efficiently to any queries, with clear communication. I have huge gratitude for the care and respect shown to my mother. I would highly recommend Shelly Beach Lodge.
