Permanent, Respite or Temporary
Care we offer
Country Lodge Nursing Home offers 24-hour nursing care to those over 65 years.
We provide a permanent home to most Residents, but we also offer temporary or short-term respite care and palliative care.
We have a wealth of experience in caring for those with MS and Parkinson’s Disease, as well as those who have suffered from one or multiple Strokes.
Permanent Nursing Care
Our electronic care plan system ensures the most accurate and up to date recording of residents’ medical needs as well as their personal preferences for care, enabling Carers to understand, in depth, residents’ needs and wishes. We encourage new residents to personalise their rooms by bringing in their favourite personal belongings – pictures, furniture, things of importance to their lives. We want residents to be as comfortable as possible.
Respite Nursing Care
Our Nurses and Carers have a wealth of experience and training in caring for residents with post stroke challenges and it is wonderful to see residents regain independence with the right care put in place. Physiotherapy, physical activities, a nutritious diet and social interaction all work together to rebuild the resident’s life.
Parkinson’s affects people in different ways, but tremors and gradual loss of physical movement is very common and the Nursing and Caring Staff at Country Lodge work hard to ensure independence through exercise and encouragement is maintained for as long as possible.
Good nutrition, provided through our home cooked meals, and social interaction provided by encouraging involvement in daily, weekly and seasonal activities all contribute to ensuring the well-being of a resident with Parkinson’s is maintained and enhanced.
Person Centered Care:
Person-centered care is at the heart of Country Lodge’s ethos. Everyone has unique qualities and our dedicated staff ensure they provide care that is responsive to individual personal preferences, needs and values. There is always a familiar face here to help at Country Lodge, someone on whom residents can rely for support whenever required. Staff take time to get to know Residents and help them live life as independently as possible.
Carers at Country Lodge know more than just Residents’ names and faces. They know people’s personalities, their priorities and their preferences – something we carefully note and update weekly through our electronic care plan system. This allows Nurses and Carers to provide individually for each Resident’s needs, while at all times respecting their privacy and dignity.
Here at Country Lodge we assess care needs according to a frailty scale carefully developed with health professionals. This enables Residents to know when Nursing Care is appropriate for them and what type of care they need to thrive in their unique set of circumstances.
