Broomfield Lodge is a residential care home situated in the parish of Herne and Broomfield. It has gardens to the front and rear and a car parking area. Locally we have a windmill, shops and park. We also have local churches and a choice of public houses. A bus stop is situated right outside. We are a five-minute drive from the seafront.
Broomfield Lodge offers a high standard of accommodation and care for the elderly and people with dementia. Whether you chose to stay at Broomfield Lodge permanently or just for a short break we will do everything possible to make your stay an enjoyable one.
The Home has recently undergone extensive refurbishment to the ground floor offering 3 new bedrooms with en-suites, a large bright lounge and dining room, purpose built kitchen and a new hairdressing salon. The existing ground floor bedrooms have also had a revamp.

• Respect your right as a citizen particularly with regard to privacy, dignity, choice, security, independence, fulfilment and to be treated equally in an environment which values your cultural needs and is free from discrimination, bullying or harassment.
PHILOSOPHY OF CARE
We recognise that the number of years lived does not prescribe how a person of a given age should live, behave, think or feel. We will value your life experience and knowledge and work in partnership with you to plan your care, which will include opportunities for fulfilment and responsible risk-taking.
To personalise your room and make it more like your home you may bring with you pictures and small items of furniture.
