Downshaw Lodge Care Home

Downshaw Lodge Care Home is a welcoming purpose-built home close to the market town of Ashton-under-Lyne in Greater Manchester.

Our 45-bed home provides a clean, safe and inviting environment for care, and has been enhanced with a rolling programme of refurbishment.

Rooms at Downshaw Lodge provide safe, comfortable and welcoming personal spaces for our residents. They have been refreshed with a contemporary new paint scheme, soft furnishings and non-slip Karndean ‘wooden plank’ flooring.

A new ‘pamper’ bathroom – complete with a hi-tech, easy-access bath – provides residents with a calming bathing experience.

The lounge area is the social hub of the home, and is complemented by the addition of a new retro-style barber’s shop. The dementia garden offers a secure, peaceful outdoor space for residents, family and friends.

We know how important food is to our residents, so we put great emphasis on providing a varied menu of delicious, nutritious and well-balanced home-cooked meals.

At Downshaw Lodge we believe that keeping active enhances physical and mental well-being. Our Lifestyle and Well-being Officer organises a range of activities and social events, with residents encouraged to join in, if they so wish. Greater Manchester’s strong sporting heritage is reflected in the fascinating collection of football and sporting memorabilia throughout the home.

We provide high-quality individualised nursing and dementia care for men in Greater Manchester, who also present challenging behaviour in their means of communication.
