White Lodge Care Home in Swindon

White Lodge Care home in Swindon provides 24-hour residential and nursing care as well as personalised dementia care. Our team of highly skilled and attentive staff focus on the individual needs of residents, with a tailored care plan for each person. Set in the heart of rural Wiltshire with views across landscaped grounds and its own fishing lake, the home was awarded the ‘Best Revival Project’ in the Healthcare Design Awards.

Dementia Care

White Lodge has a dedicated Memory Lane Community that provides a safe, homely environment for people living with dementia, which has been designed following these guidelines ensuring the care we provide supports residents’ freedom of choice. We aim to maintain their life-skills, improving their self-esteem and helping them to maintain and develop their independence while they are living with us.

Staff undertake specialist dementia care training developed by our team of Dementia Care Specialists and academic partners, the Centre for Dementia Research at Leeds Beckett University. Together they ensure our training programmes are informed by the very latest thinking. We ensure that the people we support feel comfortable and safe in their surrounding environment, helping ensure they live life with dementia to the full.

Choosing a care home for a loved one or friend who may be experiencing dementia can be difficult and we have created a guide to showcase how we ‘Enrich the lives of people living with dementia’ in our care home.

White Lodge offers a homely environment that is warm and welcoming, with beautiful en-suite bedrooms, ample living areas and spacious gardens. We also have a wide range of daily activities for residents to enjoy, including music therapy, exercise and musical entertainment, as well as trips out in our own minibus. Alongside this, we are proud to have achieved 5-star dining status and our in-house chefs have prepared a varied menu to meet all tastes and dietary requirements.

Why not call us today and arrange a visit to experience our exceptional facilities and services? We look forward to welcoming you into our home!

Ramona Gherendi

General Manager

Hello - my name is Ramona Gherendi. I am the General Manager here at White Lodge. Welcome to our website!

I joined Barchester in 2018 as a Clinical Lead, progressing to Deputy Manager and then General Manager of White Lodge in 2020.  My focus at White Lodge is to ensure residents have the best possible life and experiences every single day, supported by the skilled and caring team here.  I am committed to person centred care for all our residents and my door is always open to them and their families.

I have a real passion for nursing beginning my nursing career in 2004 in Romania as a cardiac nurse.  I moved to the UK with my family in 2011 and I have worked in adult general nursing in the UK since then.

For anyone considering care for themselves or for a loved one our doors are open for you to visit and meet the team.
