Where you'll work

We organise lots of different activities which promote wellbeing and help everyone to stay as active and independent as possible.

Elizabeth Lodge is set in beautiful landscaped gardens and the home itself is very elegant and stylish, with spacious rooms and living areas that are full of light. Everyone here is very friendly and we always have a big welcome ready for residents' families and friends and anyone else who comes to visit.
