    Northern Healthcare’s new service ‘Garth Lodge’ has been awarded accreditation from the BUILD Architecture Awards 2019, winning the “Most Anticipated Residential Healthcare Development Project”.

    The development of Garth Lodge commenced in April 2019 and is the first new build from Northern Healthcare. The service has been specifically designed with the requirements of the residents and staff at the heart  – providing a homely environment for 18 residents. The building is one level and constructed from materials to compliment the vernacular of the area. All rooms have been designed with large windows to provide an abundance of natural light and beautiful garden views.

    The 1.2-acre site, located in the heart of Workington community is only a 15 minute walk away from the seashore, along with local accessible amenities for all residents.

    People's views and decisions about care were incorporated in their care plans. This helped staff to support people in a way that allowed people to have control over their lives. People told us, "I would recommend this service to other people. Staff help me with [name of activity] and help to keep me focused." (CQC Report 2021)
