Kimbolton Lodge is an independent care home which was established in 1980 and has been providing high quality nursing and residential care for more than forty years.
We understand that moving into a care home, possibly at a time when your personal health needs are greater, can be a very daunting, stressful and emotional time for you and your family. We are proud of our ability to sensitively guide you through the admission process and warmly welcome you into your new home.
Throughout your stay at Kimbolton Lodge we will strive to ensure you are fully consulted and happy that your needs are being met. We will be available to listen to you and to ensure that you feel secure and that you are satisfied with the service you are receiving.

Complaints & Compliments
Every resident is provided with a copy of our Complaints Procedure. Whilst we aim to provide an excellent service there may be occasions when we do not meet individual expectations.
Complaints can arise through simple misunderstanding or genuine dissatisfaction. We aim to resolve all complaints quickly and usually discussing the matter determines its cause and a solution that satisfies can be found.
As part of our policy of continuous improvement the Registered Manager reviews complaints and concerns on a monthly basis to ensure they have been dealt with appropriately and to determine whether any action is required to prevent any future reoccurrence.
Kimbolton Lodge is regulated and inspected by the Care Quality Commission who review any complaints made about the service.
Kimbolton Lodge is registered by the Care Quality Commission ( CQC).
Kimbolton Lodge was awarded a ‘Good’ rating at the last Care Quality Commission inspection and the full report can be found on their website: www.cqc.org.uk
Security & Safety
It is important to us that all our residents feel safe and secure at all times.
Every resident is provided with a call bell with which to summon help at anytime and anywhere in the home or grounds.
Our security system ensures that we know who enters and leaves the building and CCTV has been installed in some public areas to support this. Details of this will be given to you on admission.
All our staff are subject to an Enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service check and thorough Reference Checks prior to commencing employment with us.
We welcome residents who are financially assisted by the Local Authority, Social Services or the Bedfordshire Luton and Milton Keynes Integrated Care Board as well as those who are self funding.
Fees are determined according to the assessed level of care required. A very useful site for reading more about information about care fees please use the link to Age UK.
