Following significant investment, Chalfont Lodge has a brand new look! The appearance of our home has been carefully designed with the people we care for in mind, including our Memory Lane Community for people living with dementia. Our bright new reception area is the perfect spot for socialising or taking part in one of our many daily activities. Our beautiful new dining room is a wonderful place to enjoy a three-course home-made lunch and our new bedrooms are comfortable and tastefully decorated. Why not take a look at our virtual tour to see our brand new look? Or alternatively, pop in to our home to see for yourself!

Chalfont Lodge is a purpose-built residential care home in Buckinghamshire in the small village of Chalfont St Peter, close to Gerrards Cross and with good public transport links to local towns.

Chalfont Lodge is also a nursing home and offers nursing care to people with a variety of complex needs, including frail older people and people living with dementia, who are supported in a dedicated Memory Lane Community. It also provides care for younger people with physical disabilities.

Chalfont Lodge specialise in treating a range of neurological conditions, including acquired brain injuries.

There are strong links with local multi-disciplinary services including orthotics, wheelchair, and SALT.  We specialise in 24 hour postural management of complex disabilities and specialist seating. We run regular consultant and specialist nurse run review clinics.

Treatments are patient and relative goal centred and aim to manage the patient holistically.  We use a wide range of modalities including exercise therapy, hydrotherapy, rebound therapy and chest physiotherapy (provided by our in-house physiotherapy team) to achieve maximal benefits for our patients.

Our staff are well-trained and compassionate, concerned to ensure that the people we support enjoy life as much as they can. The home has lovely gardens and offers a wide range of activities, including excellent music therapy.

Our team

Here at Chalfont Lodge we are privileged to have a group of staff who are all actively involved whenever a new resident moves into our home; for example our maintenance team will help in getting the room ready prior to admission and will liaise with the residents and staff in helping personalise rooms by putting up pictures and rearranging the furniture when required.

Through Barchester’s unique care approach, Chalfont Lodge’s Lifestyle Coordinators play a key role in our admission process by meeting with each resident and/or their next of kin to discuss lifestyle choices.

Each member of staff at the home is committed to providing the highest standard of care and ensuring that each resident’s day is comfortable and happy. The team puts those we support at the centre of all our working daily activities.

It doesn’t matter what team or department we work in at Chalfont Lodge, we are ultimately all only here to support residents in our care. The backbone of our home is our care staff who work tirelessly to make sure each resident feels cared for and supported while they are here; it doesn’t matter if a person stays for a week or for 10 years, every resident is special to us and it is our pleasure to look after them.

Wayne Hughes

Acting General Manager

My name is Wayne Hughes and I am the Acting General Manager here at Chalfont Lodge.

I have been in the care sector since I finished university and have worked in many varied roles in home care and nursing care. I began work in the caring profession as a domiciliary carer to support me whilst I was in university; I soon discovered that I really enjoyed the work and being able to make people's lives more comfortable and enjoyable gave me a sense of pride.

After leaving university, I was asked to work as a care coordinator in the local home care branch and I rapidly worked my way up the various levels of management and was soon a branch manager of a home care agency. After spending many years managing home care agencies, I felt it was time for a change, and decided to focus on managing residential and nursing homes.

My first posting was at a small 19 bedded residential home in Harrow, where I worked as a deputy manager for the home. I enjoyed the work very much and, once the home's manager was promoted, I became the registered manager of this home at a relatively young age.

Since my first posting in a care home, I have managed a number of establishments in various organisations. I have taken time to cultivate my Continuous Professional Development and, along with mandatory training requirements, I have an NVQ Level 4 in Business Management and a Leadership & Management in Care Level 4.

I have found working at Barchester rewarding and I acknowledge the investment they put into their staff and care homes that ensures the best possible care can be provided.

I am a keen cyclist, breed budgies and currently also have 3 ferrets (Rocky, Flipsy and Squeak).

Please feel free to pop in at any time.

There are strong links with local multi-disciplinary services, including orthotics, wheelchair, and SALT. We specialise in 24 hour postural management of complex disabilities and specialist seating, and run regular consultant and specialist, nurse-run review clinics.
