Visiting update in light of Covid-19 at Tudor Lodge and Canford Manor Nursing Homes
Tudor Lodge and Canford Manor have been welcoming new residents and visitors indoors again since the government announcement in March 2021. During the lockdowns, we made extensive efforts to keep residents and friends/relatives in touch, face to face where possible. Both homes have had considerable investment in iPads for video calls and staff to be on hand to assist with them, building visiting pods, access paths and testing facilities to enable relatives to visit and increased activity and entertainment provision for when life in lockdown became boring. Inside the homes is day to day life as usual for the residents – plenty of company, fun, great food and a spirit of community.
With virtually every staff member now in receipt of both vaccinations and regular twice weekly testing for everyone coming into the building to work or visit, along with extensive PPE supplies, we are doing everything possible to keep our residents safe and engaged with the world outside.
Entertainment and activities have continued in their increased format. Visiting has increased at each of the governments easing of restrictions and we’ve spent the beginning of the year refreshing both buildings so that they are looking lovely in the Spring sunshine.
We can safely take interested residents around the buildings again to help them see the comfortable environments and get a feel for the caring and uplifting atmosphere. Each home has a reception team briefed on the latest visiting rules from the government so please call for an update.
Our ethos of care is very simple; happy residents = happy relatives = happy staff = happy owners! Quite simply, we just want to get everything right for everyone, all the time, and we work hard to achieve that outcome.

Owners Since 2005
Tudor Lodge has a new luxury extension of bedrooms, and communal spaces opening in late May 2021. Room reservations from plan are already being taken. Ground floor bedrooms have patio doors onto private garden spaces and every bedroom has a full en-suite shower room with a toilet and handbasin. There are two new spa bathrooms with mood lighting and luxury décor all around.
A very sunny orangery and dining room sits next door to a warm and welcoming new lounge with an open fireplace. There are three large lifts to the first floor, dotted around at convenient points in the building. There are several purpose-built visiting pods that the pandemic made necessary although we are really enjoying being allowed to have indoor visits again!
The activity provision has doubled and the hairdressing salon has increased in capacity. The residents bar has proved a huge hit and the gardening clubs have just resumed with the onset of Spring. Full tours are now available with rapid testing helping keep everyone safe. We are very excited to be welcoming new residents and have some great new staff – trained and inducted by our existing team, to assist with admissions.
