What is special about our homes?


    We pay our staff well and we value them, which in turn means that we have been able to develop an excellent staff team who are well trained and really care for our residents.

    Our staff numbers are roughly twice that of a standard care home allowing us to provide high levels of care for residents with complex needs.

    We are ‘specialists’ in Special Care – we don’t do anything else. We define specialist care as looking after residents with complex mental and physical health problems.

    We have developed and maintain robust compliance and governance structures to ensure that we’re continually improving.

    We have excellent facilities which are almost all purpose built with extra space and fantastic gardens.


The environment is so diverse

I have worked at South Africa Lodge as an Office Manager for 6,5 years. The thing I love most about my job is that it is different every day in a busy environment. I feel that I make a difference to assist the staff with their needs as well as handling business matters with the suppliers/contractors the best I can. The environment is so diverse and we have a great staff team and great residents. I take pleasure in doing my job to the best of my ability and the management team are fair and help to empower me to be the best I can, and in turn, I do the same to my staff teams.

Very supportive company

I have been working at South Africa Lodge as a carer then laundry staff for 17, 5 years.

The thing I love most about my job is that I have a great team, without them I couldn’t do my job. The company is great to work for, very supportive, and we can all have a good laugh. I feel that I make a difference by ensuring my team have high standards of work. The most satisfying element of my job is knowing that our residents look the best they can. I feel proud because we all strive to make the residents’ life as happy and as caring as we can. I like working at South Africa Lodge because we are all treated the same no matter what our job is.
