Special Features
Special Features
Coronation Lodge has been owned and operated by Robyn & John Sanders since June 2006. Robyn and John live on site and have bought enthusiasm and energy to the role and a commitment to their residents.

Robyn has bought her professional and business skills to the role and she knows that the creation of the ‘right’ sort of environment makes a happy home. She therefore takes a personal interest in every resident and staff member. Robyn is in the home every day visiting every resident and meeting day staff members when they are on duty. She has a 'finger on the pulse' at all times and is very accessible to the residents.

In a happy home people get on well together and Robyn works to create an environment where that happens.
Staff are friendly and happy and are passionate about their role to provide wonderful care to our lovely residents.
