First class respite care

Our respite care is different to other homes because of our ethos of promoting quality of life. Within our all-inclusive fees is access to our physiotherapy service and our aim is that you will be more fit after your respite stay than when you came in to us. We are a family run nursing home with a focus on the individual, so regardless of a person’s care needs, we believe in empowering our residents to enjoy the highest possible quality of life.

“Exceptional home, first-class nurses and staff. Beautiful rooms with all needs catered for. The best just got better”

Enjoying life and living well

We recognise that keeping the mind and body as active as possible in later life are important for a person’s wellbeing,
so with that in mind:

• Our expert activities teams work hard to provide a whole host of events, clubs and occasions for our residents to take part in if they wish, offering opportunities to try new hobbies and socialise with other residents.

• We gather information about each resident’s interests and hobbies so that we can include these in the activities calendar to make them feel at home.

• In addition, our professional in-house chefs cater for all dietary requirements to ensure that all of our residents eat well via delicious, nutritious meals. Using fresh local produce to create marvellous culinary delights, our chefs make sure that there’s something for everyone on the menu


Shipston Lodge is located on the outskirts of the charming market town of Shipston-on-Stour, just a short walk away from the town centre, which offers a post office, several small supermarkets, a chemist and a selection of other independent shops. Stratford-upon-Avon, Banbury and Moreton-in-Marsh are also not too far away should you feel like going further afield.

Keeping in touch

We recognise the importance of staying in regular touch with family and friends, as well as the positive impact that visits have on our residents. We continue to fully adhere to Public Health guidelines and have established a COVID-secure visiting room where relatives can see and speak to their loved ones in a relaxing environment. Other communication methods – such as video calls and phone calls – are also still available options if a physical visit isn’t possible.

Funding support

We provide a truly all-inclusive pricing policy which breaks down into one weekly fee, meaning residents and their families don’t have to worry about budgeting for anything extra in relation to their care, as it’s all taken care of. It also means that family and friends don’t have worry about the cost of a cup of tea when they visit, and if they want to take advantage of our private dining experience to celebrate a special occasion, then they can – it’s all included.

You may be eligible for financial support and help with funding your or your loved one’s care depending on your income, assets and where you live. Our team can advise further on this if required.
