Services offered: Dementia Care Residential Care Respite Care
Completed in Spring 2017, Goodson Lodge Care Centre features a specialist home environment, designed specifically to enhance quality of life. Located close to the town centre in Trowbridge this homely care centre offers accommodation for 64 residents who can enjoy the social activities going on every day, or find some peaceful relaxation in one of the comfortable lounges.
About the Home
Split over two floors, this modern care centre offers compassionate care in an environment that has been designed sensitively with residents’ comfort and well-being in mind.
Our dedicated, professionally trained team are on hand 24 hours a day, seven days a week providing personalised care and support when it is needed.
Staverton and Yarnbrook households provide care for individuals living with dementia. These households are complimented by our ‘Street’ on which you will find a salon, shop, tea rooms and cinema all centred around our beautiful garden lounge. Each household comprises 16 bedrooms and every person is placed with consideration given to their day-to-day needs, ensuring they can build relationships with others at a similar point on their journey with dementia.
Edington and Westwood households offer residential care on our dedicated residential floor. This includes facilities for those who need just a small amount of support with day-to-day tasks such as personal care and food preparation and want the peace of mind that carers are close by should they be needed. This floor houses a sophisticated library and several balconies which look out onto some wonderful views across the countryside. Residents who live in these households are free to make use of the facilities on the ‘Street’ as they wish. All residents are supported to remain as independent as possible.
Across all households, residents have access to a comfortable and homely living area, including a lounge, sitting room, kitchen and dining room. The spacious bedrooms all have stylish en-suite ‘wet room’ bathrooms and many have views of the landscaped gardens. With all this and more Goodson Lodge Care Centre offers an exceptional home environment.
Food and Nutrition
Weekly menus feature a variety of balanced dishes including meat, fish, fresh seasonal vegetables and salads. Vegetables and herbs that have been home-grown by residents in the garden’s raised planters are also incorporated into the menu seasonally, creating tasty meals with added satisfaction.
On top of this you will always find a freshly-baked cake in the coffee shop along with fabulous afternoon teas. Fresh fruit is always available in fruit baskets throughout the home.
Goodson Lodge offers a host of activities for residents to get involved with. Our dedicated activities team work with each resident to understand their unique interests and hobbies and use this information to plan future activities. These include sessions to promote physical and mental agility as well as nurturing the community to forge new bonds of friendship between residents and carers. Examples of our current activities include:

The team ensures that activities cater for the more active and adventurous as well as those who prefer a more relaxed and leisurely day.

We offer one-to-one sessions within our activities structure which work particularly well for those who prefer to spend time in smaller groups.
