Visitors as usual (but not if you're unwell or recently returned from overseas)
Our Rest Home area of our facility is one like that of an extended family. We have double rooms available for couples along with standard single rooms.

Residents are able to get their own breakfast along with drinks and nibbles during the day, as if it was like their own home.

Extensive Divisional Therapy programmes insure there is always something the can attend to do.
Having full services available at Lonsdale, should one of the residents need continuing care, getting a transfer to our hospital division is less stressful for them as they already know the facility and the staff. The same is true should they also need to be transferred to Teppett Flats, our specialist Dementia Unit
