Orchard Lodge comprises two purpose-built bungalows just outside Horsham, West Sussex, that provide care for adults with learning and physical disabilities.
This specialist care home with nursing combines the latest technological facilities with a safe, comfortable, homely environment for our service users.
Our aim is to provide a care home that offers a safe, comfortable environment with support and stimulation to help service users maximise their potential physical, intellectual, emotional and social capacity within an individual person-centred plan. Service users have the right to live as normal a life as possible and to have the respect of those who support them.
The friendly and homely atmosphere we have created at Orchard Lodge ensures that the service users are able to continue their lifestyle with personal privacy and dignity. The peace and tranquillity of our lovely home and gardens is enjoyed by the service users and they are confident of the high standard of care.
Orchard Lodge is a specialist adult care home with 24-hour nursing support. It consists of two units, one with 11 and one with 12 places for people with learning and/or physical disabilities aged 18 to 65 years. The home is purpose-built and rooms provide track hoisting and en suite facilities.

Orchard Lodge has the benefit of an Activity Organiser who devises and carries out personalised activity plans alongside the service user's key worker.
Some of the many activities include alternative complimentary therapies, dance and movement, music, arts and crafts, cooking, hydrotherapy swimming and hack driving. We benefit from the use of our own specially adapted minibus enabling service users to go shopping, attend local clubs and further education and enjoy outings and sporting activities.
Every effort is made to enable service users to keep in touch with relatives, friends and advocacy and volunteer befriending schemes are encouraged.
Care staff undertake an induction programme of instruction when joining Sussex Health Care. In addition a system of supervision and support for care staff enables them to gain experience and increase their skills. Extensive in-house training is provided by the Sussex Health Care training team and NVQ courses are undertaken in conjunction with the local colleges.
Orchard Lodge is located near the A24 just north of Horsham in West Sussex.
