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.

Caring Without Plastic

Colten Care has become the first major provider in the UK's private care home sector to begin a group-wide reduction of single-use plastic. This is a significant move given the care sector's traditionally high use of plastic in clinical services, person-centred care and infection control.
