A Warm Welcome to Maple Lodge Care Home in Sunderland

You’ll find Maple Lodge Care Home is surrounded by picturesque countryside views, situated in a pleasant suburb of Sunderland.

We are close to local shops and walking distance from public transport, making us easily accessible for visitors to pop-in.

Maple Lodge Care Home in Sunderland was rated Good in their latest CQC report and has an excellent reputation. “Excellent service in every aspect of care – hygiene, care, facilities and attention to detail of care for each individual resident is exceptional.” – 5 star review from son of resident, published on carehome.co.uk

We believe just because someone moves into a care home, that doesn’t mean they should stop doing the things they love. That’s why we provide an ever-changing activities programme inspired by our current residents’ interests and needs. Here’s a taster of what our current residents enjoy:

  • Cooking classes
  • Chair yoga
  • Art therapy
  • Day trips to local museums, parks, the seaside, and pubs

There’s usually something that will take your fancy, but if not, we can always create something just for you.

Our Care at Maple Lodge Care Home

Our Care team offer a person-centred approach that is delivered through quality care, recreation and activities, and food and dining. We provide residential care for people who need help with daily tasks, and nursing care for those who have complex medical needs. We also provide both residential dementia care and nursing dementia care for our residents who require it.

At Maple Lodge in 2023 we supported over 230 families with their care enquiry. Son of resident said via carehome.co.uk: “A care home is only as good as the people who work there and who care for the residents, and on every count, the staff at Maple Lodge were absolutely wonderful for and to my mum, and she thought the world of all of them.”

Key Information

We provide care for those who are publicly funded as well as those paying for their own care.

It’s important to get professional advice on the best way to fund the cost of care and we suggest that you take advice from a care fees expert to make sure that you have explored all the options available to you.

In order to make life easier we have contacted a national care fees planning specialist, Symponia who are dedicated to the financial issues of later life, in particular the payment of care fees. Through Symponia’s network of carefully selected and qualified financial advisers they offer you and/or your family member empathic, bespoke advice on the best way to fund weekly care fees. This approach ensures that not only are all our residents and their families aware of the legislation and how it works but they are able to explore all the financial options available to them.

It should be noted that Four Seasons Health Care and Symponia operate completely independently with no commission or financial benefit to Four Seasons Health Care as a result of your conversation or contract.
