Good Shepherd Lodge and Kerrisdale Gardens

Good Shepherd Lodge

gslWith a reputation for excellence in care since 1974, Good Shepherd Lodge has recently completed a major refurbishment of 2 areas of its large complex, to accommodate residents requiring dementia specific care in a fully secure environment. With tactile walls, gardens, pets and activity rooms for craft, a homely environment has been created with most rooms accessing a central courtyard and extensive secure gardens.


All residents in care enjoy the privacy of their own ensuited room with each wing having their own lounge. An impressive Mall with Café, children’s playground, Hairdresser, function rooms, Chapel and Therapy Centre, it is a great all weather walking area, with seating along the way to catch up with passers-by or meet for a cup of tea or coffee in the light filled atrium.




There is a great range of activities provided by the Diversional Therapists including Sitting Dance, Music Therapy, Movies, Bingo, Aromatherapy and Jewellery Making to name a few. The men are not forgotten either with specific outings planned and Good Shepherd’s 2 buses at the ready to take them to a cricket match or a club for lunch.


Staff strive to ensure that all our residents find Good Shepherd Lodge a place of happy companionship where security, independence and privacy within a community lifestyle can be enjoyed. Personal space is important and our aim is to ensure that residents feel at home and most importantly they are encouraged to continue being independent and enjoy having family and friends visit in our relaxed and beautiful environment.

Our retirement living village consisting of 45 units is positioned in landscaped grounds offering secure, independent living options for those looking for the experience of private living in a community atmosphere. With access to 24 hour emergency call system in every unit and onsite Café, Hairdresser, Chapel and Therapy Centre, village residents can continue to enjoy the pursuits that interest them in the wider community and also join in the many activities and benefits offered on site.
