About Edendale Lodge

Edendale Lodge provides a home to elderly members of the community who are no longer able to live independently or require some companionship.

The Edendale Lodge team pride themselves on providing a warm and loving home in an environment that is stimulating yet peaceful and dignified. As specialists within Dementia our team of professionals are highly experienced in providing dementia care and 24 hour support to those suffering the effects of Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, confusion and other similar conditions. Managed with genuine care and concern, residents can live a dignified life in a safe, secure and enabling environment.

Edendale Lodge is a registered member of the Care Quality Commission (CQC), the principal regulatory body for the care industry. We welcome male and female residents aged 55 years and over and place no restrictions on religious practices or pets. We provide long term care and short term respite care to residents originating from the local area and those from London, Kent (Tunbridge Wells), and all other regions of the UK who are prepared to live with us in East Sussex. Prior to new residents joining us we carry out a full assessment of their needs, preferences, medical condition and personality. On arrival our staff make every effort to settle a newcomer into the home, a process which can be disorientating for an elderly individual unless handled with genuine care and concern.
