ABOUT LOCAL CARE HOME - OSJCT BEMERTON LODGE
Bemerton Lodge provides accommodation and care for up to 56 older people, some of whom may have dementia.
The home, located just half a mile from the centre of the cathedral city of Salisbury, is operated by The Orders of St John Care Trust (OSJCT). OSJCT is a leading not for profit charity which provides care for older people in over 70 care homes and extra care schemes.
Bemerton Lodge offers its residents single room accommodation. Residents are encouraged to personalise their rooms with their own possessions and furniture if they so wish. The two floors are linked by a lift. Both floors have communal lounges and dining areas. The home also has a mobile shop, a tea room and a bar.
As part of its specialist dementia care service, the home focuses on the activities of daily living skills. To that end, a residents' kitchen has been created, which is very popular and well used.
