The Lodge

2a Sandown Road, Sutton in Ashfield, Nottinghamshire, NG17 4LW

The Lodge is an enhanced community residential transitional service for men with neuropsychiatric or neurodegenerative conditions who may have social and complex needs.

The Lodge acts as a transition from inpatient rehabilitation for those service users who have been able to progress through the hospital pathway at our neuropsychiatric services in the East Midlands. We also accept referrals from other neuropsychiatric services within the UK.

Residents at The Lodge will continue to receive psychological, occupational therapy, specialised clinical support and 24/7 support worker interventions and support, as required and recommended, outside a hospital setting under less restrictive settings. We provide high staffing ratios of 1:2 ensuring the men are supported and cared for at all times. The aim of this treatment is to complete rehabilitation in a community setting with emphasis on making the necessary specialist help available outside the hospital setting.

The Lodge offers 8 beds in a homely and safe environment. All bedrooms are en-suite and have access to a living / dining room, kitchen and a rear garden with patio area. The home has strong links and easy access to local amenities, as well as being within 10 miles of three national parks.
