OUR PHILOSOPHY OF CARE
Caring is at the heart of what we do
Our team strive to preserve and maintain the dignity, individuality and privacy of all residents within a warm and caring atmosphere, and in so doing are sensitive to our resident’s ever-changing needs. Such needs may be therapeutic (for physical and mental welfare), cultural, psychological, spiritual, emotional and social. Our residents are encouraged to participate in the development of their individualised Care Plans in which the involvement of family and friends may be appropriate, is encouraged and is greatly valued.
What we offer
Respite Care is an essential part of caring for loved ones in the community. Whether you are a full-time professional carer, you care for a relative on an informal basis, or are in need of permanent care yourself, taking a break from your usual routine can be the solution that works for you.
As a carer you want to relax, knowing your relative, friend or client is in a safe, welcoming environment with personalised care and support tailored to their needs. A short stay at Woodlands Lodge gives people the opportunity to experience a short break among friendly, welcoming staff and it’s also a chance to meet with other people we support as well.
Woodlands Lodge Care Home offers local members of the community an opportunity to take advantage of day-care services, or become involved in a range of organised social activities.
We believe independence is a vital part of a person’s dignity, sometimes, as life goes on, it’s possible to feel a little isolated in your own home. Day care continues to support the person in the community for as long as is needed.
By attending Woodlands Lodge you are very likely to make new and improve or maintain life skills without feeling the need to give up independence. Naturally, this is a benefit to anyone finding life a little difficult at home on their own, but it can also be a welcome break for carers who need to know their loved ones are cared for professionally – once a day, or once a week, depending on individual needs.
