About Valley Lodge

The home was purpose built in 1992 and purchased by Ashmere in 1997. The property was extended in 2008. It has 61 bedrooms, 59 single rooms, 51 of which benefit from en-suite facilities. There are also 2 double rooms, 2 with en-suite available. The home is currently being refurbished, and now offers premium rooms, offering the highest quality of decor and comfort.

Valley Lodge Extra Care Unit is devoted to the care of residents with dementia. The Unit was awarded the Derbyshire County Council Dementia Standard Award in 2015, the first home to receive the award. Our specialist unit provides a safe and secure environment with only twelve residents, allowing the very best care to be delivered by staff. We have the same staff in the unit to ensure our residents always see a familiar face.
