Care is the core of our family-owned business where we strive to provide person-centred care, created by you, delivered by us.
We understand that the transition into a care home can be emotional, but our teams are committed to supporting families with the decision making process.
Residential care is for older people whose needs are low. They may need some assistance with day to day tasks such as washing or dressing but do not require specialist nursing care or support. We do everything we can to give the person as much of that independence back whilst giving them the added security of 24 hour personal care.
Individuals who require a little more support may be better suited to our nursing care or dementia care facilities.
We aim to provide comfort and security to all older people and ensure a balanced happy life within our homes.
Nursing care is for older individuals who require 24-hour medical care as well as personal living needs. This may include those who require rehabilitative care after an accident or stroke or people with long-term health conditions or with physical disabilities or require special feeding.
Our nurses are trained to recognise signs and symptoms of illnesses which can be picked up quickly and a doctor called if necessary.
Our homes are equipped with specialist beds to cater for residents with medical needs, and a range of equipment to aid mobility.
Dementia care can be a difficult and emotional decision for residents and their families. Individuals living with dementia may require extra or specialised care and support as they are no longer able to live independently at home with support from a relative, friend or carer.
Our staff are trained to understand the many different types of dementia and how some of the symptoms may present for each person. We provide extra support to help maintain psychological, sociological and physical well-being.
By cherishing and nurturing each person’s individuality, and developing a true understanding of them, we form close bonds with our residents and are able to read small changes in someone’s mood and overall wellbeing at any given time. This allows us to tailor our care in flexible and responsive way to support feelings of happiness and safety and reducing insecurity, frustration and anxiety.
Palliative care, or end-of-life care, is the specialist care provided to someone during the later stages of their life. This care can span the final years, not just the last few days. At Acacia Lodge Care Home, we understand it can be a difficult and sensitive time when discussing end of life care, and we are here to support you and your family through the journey.
Every resident is an individual. At Acacia Lodge Care home we are committed to treating our residents as such. With unique and person care plans, each resident’s specific needs are looked after and all staff understand every resident’s interests and preferences.
