Avon Lodge provides nursing, Dementia, residential and respite care to residents. The home is run by a highly experienced team of staff who are selected for their skills, and the home operates a 24-hour service, delivering a high standard of nursing care to suit each resident’s bespoke needs.

Daily activities and entertainment are a core part of our quality care at Avon Lodge. We pride ourselves on offering a diverse, enriching range of weekly activities and entertainment allowing residents to continue to relish in their favourite hobbies and pastimes or to try out something new entirely.
We involve residents in the planning of our weekly activities timetables and offer one-to-one bespoke and tailored opportunities as requested. We’re also passionate about keeping our homes and residents at the heart of the local community, working closely with community groups, schools and other community connections to keep residents involved in local activities.
Some of our regular activities include:
- Film nights
- Pampering sessions
- Ladies/mens clubs
- Dementia-friendly activities
- Music for residents living with Dementia
- Reminiscence sessions
- Arts and crafts
Dining is an essential part of the care package we provide to our residents, not only from a general health and wellbeing perspective, but we believe residents should be able to enjoy eating what they want, when they want.
Our chef fully assesses all dietary needs, including likes and dislikes, allergies. special diets, through to preferred portion sizes and mealtimes.
All of our food is home cooked and we offer a seasonal menu of the resident’s choice. Visual choices of dishes are provided daily and the staff work closely with dieticians and speech and language therapy specialists to successfully address the dietary needs of every resident.
Our catering team prides itself on producing food of the highest quality, using local suppliers to create fresh, homemade dishes each day.
Avon Lodge is situated in the town of Kingswood. The home is ideally placed close to the surrounding areas of Bath and Bristol, so there is something to suit everyone. Visitors and residents can explore the market town which is full of historic buildings, shops and parks. There are plenty of local attractions and places to visit while the city centre is only 10 minutes away.
The health and wellness of our residents is very important and we work closely in partnership with local health and wellness professionals to ensure every resident is able to lead a full and enriched life. We welcome visiting professionals such as GPs, chiropodists, opticians and can arrange visits to other professionals if and when it may be required.
Our visiting pod in the garden, with its two entrance points, protective Perspex screens, intercom system and a nurse call button, allows us to safely facilitate visits from friends and relatives when our infection control procedures prevent us from welcoming visitors into the home itself.
Arranged over three floors, our 62 bedrooms can be personalised to make them a real home-from-home, and residents are able to enjoy a selection of lounges, dining rooms and well-kept gardens for relaxing, socialising and entertaining.
All our bedrooms are provided ready-furnished with the essentials for instant comfort, and we happily encourage our residents to bring their own treasured furnishings and belongings if they would like to do so.
Amongst our range of well-equipped areas and facilities, there’s always space for quiet contemplation, or for enjoying the company of kindred spirits, and for relishing in interests and pursuits.
Our in-house hairdressing salon provides the perfect sanctuary to keep our residents feeling their best, whilst our gardens, bordered by flower beds and mature trees, offer an al fresco setting to enjoy anything from exercise to taking tea.
