Our Home

Braemar Lodge is a distinctive and delightful home where residents are encouraged to lead the fullest possible lives. It’s very much part of the community in the historic city of Salisbury, sitting in leafy award-winning gardens with fabulous views of the city and its famous cathedral. Though it has the grace and scale of a large Victorian villa, Braemar Lodge was purpose-built for residential and nursing care, offering first class accommodation alongside flexible care and support.

The home is part of Colten Care, an independent and family-run company determined to set the highest standards in all aspects of care for the elderly. With our simple, all-inclusive pricing structure, there are no hidden extras or non-refundable deposits.

Our Garden

We pride ourselves on our beautiful and stimulating gardens. We recognise that many of our residents had such gardens themselves, and that gardening may have been a special pastime for them. We like to think that we can offer residents the opportunity to continue that pastime in whatever way they feel appropriate.

Colten Champions

Every year, we celebrate the hard work and dedication of the team members across the Colten group who consistently deliver above and beyond expectations. Colleagues, residents, and their relatives can all put forward their nominations, before the finalists are invited to a glittering gala ceremony at Bournemouth's Highcliff Marriott Hotel, hosted by none other than TV's Dr Hilary Jones.

We are very happy to say Lesley King, our gardener here at Braemar Lodge, won the 'Pride In Your Home' award this year, and we also won the 'In Home Team of the Year' award, with the judges describing Braemar Lodge as a genuine home from home which consistently delivers high standards.

Here at Braemar Lodge, we wholeheartedly got behind the Caring Without Plastic scheme. We began by appointing two enthusiastic champions, Mikey and Martin, and had our first meeting on 31st May, where we shared ideas and started a suggestions file to be kept at reception. A few days later, we talked to residents about refraining from using plastic bin liners in the waste bins in the bedrooms and bathrooms. We trialled this with feedback and immediately saved the planet 108 plastic bags a day - that’s nearly 40,000 a year from just one care home!

Over the summer, we instigated and trialled various ideas put forward by our residents and staff. On 29thAugust, we held our first recycling committee meeting with a group of residents. Mikey updated us all with what is currently being done. One resident said:

“Gosh, I don’t think there is much more we could recycle!”

On 18thSeptember, we held our Green Day to celebrate what we have achieved so far. We are always looking for more ideas so if you have any ideas or suggestions which could help us in our plastic-free drive, please do get in touch.
