General Information


Each of the lodges and the Paxton Centre have been purpose built to ensure people affected by disability can make full use of all the facilities at Homelands. Within both the Paxton Centre and the lodges there is level access and widened door frames. There are two wheelchair accessible paths that offer access in and out of Homelands; one of these paths leads to the golf course and road outside Homelands and the other leads to the main street in Lundin Links where all the shops and bus stops can be found.

All lodges have Guldmann H-frame ceiling tracking hoists in each of the ground floor bedrooms and in the wet room. Furthermore each lodge has one electric profiling bed with an Invacare Softform Premier Active 2 airflow mattress in the each ground floor bedroom.

All our lodges feature a full wet room on the ground floor with a pull down seat in the shower area, (various shower chairs and shower trollies are also available, free of charge, on request, please see list below). Drummochy and Cardy lodges each have clos-o-mat toilets in the wet room.
