Pathfields Lodge

Pathfields Lodge is a specialist care home providing supportive and therapeutic care for adults with physical disability, brain injury or learning disability.  With a 24 hour on-site nursing team, we are also able to support individuals with additional physical health conditions.

Near the market town of Wellingborough in Northamptonshire, we offer a homely and welcoming environment conducive to the physical, mental and social wellbeing of our residents.  Many of our residents live with us permanently, others stay with us for a short period of respite care.  However long a resident stays with us we always make sure they are at the centre of their care.  Pathfields is a member of Northamptonshire Association of Registered Care Homes (NorArch).

"Staff treated people with kindness, compassion, dignity and respect. Individualised care plans were in place that reflected people's needs and choices on how they wanted their care and support to be provided"   (CQC, November 2016)

Care at Pathfields Lodge

Specialist Learning Disability Service

At Pathfields, each resident has their own care plan so that they can live a life that is meaningful to them. This can look very different for each person depending upon their own goals and interests and family involvement.
We give our residents the opportunity to grow and develop in a nurturing and forward thinking way, together with everyone who is important to the individual.

General care

Special attention is paid to continuing physical healthcare and additional mental healthcare needs where psychiatry and psychology services can be added as bolt ons dependent on individual needs.

Who we treat

We treat adults, men and women, with a Learning Disability or Physical Disability. Most of our residents need our ongoing support to carry out everyday tasks and to manage living as independently as possible.
