Gibson’s Lodge is a 52-bed nursing home, located in Streatham. Situated in a quiet, leafy suburban street close to the park but still conveniently located for all transport links, shops and other local facilities, we provide a real home-from-home atmosphere.
What makes Gibson’s Lodge unique is our cultural diversity with residents and staff from a range of backgrounds. Many of our long-term residents have been with us for some time, including out oldest resident who has been with us for over 21 years.
Our home makes the most of modern care capabilities, including electronic person-centred care planning. All our bedrooms are en-suite and have a 24-hour call system.

Who we care for:
We specialise in caring for adults with advanced dementia and a range of mental health issues.
We are also able to care for residents that other services have been unable to manage. This means that on an average day Gibson’s Lodge can appear either noisy and lively or peaceful and calm – in fact no two days are ever the same, but we take it all in our stride, with a smile on our faces.
Our caring staff are all trained to manage challenging behaviour, not only keeping our residents safe but also bringing harmony to their lives.
Our resident chef, Christine, is able to provide delicious, freshly home-cooked meals for a range of cultures including British, Caribbean and African.
Our menus always include a choice of dishes from three continents, so whether it’s jerk chicken with rice and peas, jollof rice, chickpea masala, okra soup or a traditional roast dinner and bread and butter pudding or rhubarb crumble and custard, there’s always something to tempt our residents’ taste buds.
Activities for residents:
We aim to provide a homely environment which supports our residents with mental health conditions or dementia and enhances their quality of life.
We offer a range of weekly activities and a rehabilitation programme which includes:
- Movie afternoons
- Reminiscence therapy
- Arts and crafts
- Regular social events
Friends and families are always welcome to visit and participate in any activity that is delivered by our home’s activity’s coordinator.
We are now happy to announce that we are open to new admissions. We have a strict programme of infection control measures to safeguard our residents, staff and all healthcare workers.
Our residents are tested monthly with the PCR test and staff also complete a weekly PCR test as well as two lateral flow tests.
Any professional visitors are asked to provide evidence of a negative test and visitors are also asked to do a lateral flow test, all in accordance with the latest government guidance.
