Garden Lodge

The residents of Garden Lodge benefit from a vibrant atmosphere generated by all the comers and goers to The Fern Dean community. It is somewhat of a hub of activity as it acts as the gateway to the various garden spaces, hosts a number of weekly religious services, contains the front of house services and a number of other community amenities such as the hairdressing salon and gallery. The manager of the Garden Lodge Estate is an experienced lady with a warm approach that compliments the bubbly nature of activity in this area.

Fern Lodge

The Fern Lodge is a community that predominantly supports residents with dementia or cognitive impairment. The accommodation areas focus around carefully appointed lounges and domestic hubs designed to ensure a supportive environment. The social scene on the Fern Lodge is carefully tailored to supporting its distinguished residents in a manner that is sensitive to their own very important needs. The manager of the Fern Lodge Estate has vast experience in the effective operation and oversight of services for residents with dementia and succeeds in creating strong partnerships between residents, staff (care partners), friends and family.
