Adult Day Care Centre In
Westward Ho!

Heron’s Lodge Day Care is a family owned day centre with a genuine, warm and
 happy atmosphere located in a beautiful countryside location.

"I am so excited about Heron's Lodge because there are not many opportunities for day care in our
area. Our aim is to enhance our clients' day by providing fun and interesting activities while
socialising with other individuals in a relaxed countryside surrounding."

Frankie Filmer - Heron's Lodge

Heron's Lodge Day Care Centre

We opened our doors to a new venture of providing day care to adults on the 1st of September

The lodge consists of a spacious hallway and toilet, leading to a large kitchen / dining area. There is
a comfortable sitting room and another relaxation room, all located on the ground floor. There is also a large disabled bathroom.

It is managed by two experienced and qualified members of our care team. The manager has been
responsible for adult day care for over 20 years, so present and prospective clients will be
guaranteed a pleasurable, varied day.

The objective is to provide a fun and stimulating day.

We can cater up to 12 clients a day, with very limited spaces now available.

Who can benefit?

Able elderly adults who are in need of some company and a ‘day out’ of their normal routine from home life.

People with mild disabilities who want to make some new friends.

Elderly Adults living with dementia.


"When Roy's previous day care centre had to close, I was very wary of finding another which was
caring and not leaving their clients sitting around doing very little all day. So I was delighted to find
Heron's Lodge which was about to open. On meeting Frankie for the first time, I knew this was not
going to be the case. She is a very lively, energetic lady and always has a smile on her face, greeting
everybody as if they are the most important person, making them feel wanted. Ollie has a most
cheerful personality and again, greets the men especially as if they are his 'buddies'"

"Mum loves her time spent at Heron's Lodge. From the first day, she felt as if she belonged. Frankie
and Ollie are so friendly and welcoming, they had soon established a clear understanding of mum's
needs, likes and dislikes and so were able to provide stimulating activities to suit her. We are so
delighted mum is very well cared for and that she has gained a new circle of friends."
