Gilwood Lodge Nursing Home

Welcome to Gilwood Lodge Nursing Home. We are a friendly, high-quality 47-bed care home located in the popular seaside resort of Blackpool. 

At Gilwood Lodge we’re dedicated to providing kind and considerate nursing care and individualised care packages.

Gilwood Lodge has undergone a recent £1.4 million transformation that has created a clean and comfortable home with the latest sensory and dementia-friendly features such as hi-tech ‘pamper’ bathrooms.

These features are complemented by comfortable furnishings and a fresh, contemporary décor throughout. A pleasant garden area provides a space for residents to enjoy Blackpool’s bracing sea air.

Our services

At Gilwood Lodge we’re committed to providing the level of care we’d expect for ourselves and our loved ones.

Our qualified and dedicated nursing team provides quality nursing care and individualised care packages for people living with a dementia or a related condition, and to those with palliative and end-of-life care needs.

Each resident receives a tailored care plan that reflects their individual strengths and interests as well as their physical and emotional abilities.
