Leah Lodge - Cinnamon Care Collection

Leah Lodge’s boutique care home welcomes a small group of 48 residents; the perfect number to ensure a close sense of community, while allowing the highest standards of personalised care. For the team at Leah Lodge, care is not a career choice – it is part of our nature. We know it is the little things that can make all the difference – like always having time for a chat, knowing the names of your children and grandchildren, and never forgetting a birthday or anniversary. Leah Lodge provides high-quality, tailored residential and dementia care.
