Penfold Lodge is a care home for 18 adults (male and female) who have enduring mental health problems. We provide recovery-focused rehabilitation and community housing, and our bespoke approach looks at what can be achieved for each person, taking into account their abilities, interests and needs.

We aim to improve the quality of life for the people in our care by supporting them to manage their mental health so that they can function more independently in the wider community.

Our approach

We want the best for people in our care and we place great importance on outcomes and quality of life. We work within a positive environment to encourage confidence, whilst bringing structure, inclusion and opportunity into their lives.

Penfold Lodge is committed to ensuring that a recovery model and ethos is at the centre of our service delivery, with measurement of this being realised through the recovery star process. This goes beyond focusing on symptoms and problems to overcome, and instead engages with the whole person as a social being with needs, hopes and ambitions. We believe that everyone has the capacity to recover and rehabilitate.

This philosophy is underpinned by the need to:

  • Provide the opportunity for independent living
  • Encourage social inclusion
  • Promote robust risk management

We achieve this by working closely with professionals from mental health and social services teams, and other interested stakeholders. We also provide patients with the opportunity to look at their mental health issues and take steps to deal with them.

The environment

Penfold Lodge is made up of independent living units, with access to:

  • 5 fully equipped domestic kitchens and a large communal kitchen
  • Bathrooms/shower rooms
  • Communal spaces
  • 18 bedrooms, 7 of which have en-suite facilities
  • Gardens and coastal location in the heart of the community
