The management and staff at Victoria Lodge Care Home are committed to providing a standard of care that embraces all the principles of excellent care home practices. The resident’s physical and spiritual wellbeing is at the heart of our plan of care which ultimately enables each resident to reach their desired goals and level of fulfilment in life. We actively promote a happy working and living environment which is both professional, courteous and fun. We believe in respecting individual preferences whilst encouraging independence. We have specialist trained dementia staff that promote rights and choices to the individual needs of the service user.
It is important to us to respect the variations in individual needs, interests, views, lifestyle, hobbies and personalities, and the staff will make this an inclusive part of an individual’s plan of care.
ACTIVITIES & INTERACTION
We have dedicated activity co-ordinators on duty 6 days per week who use resources to promote stimulation and reminiscence sessions and the home has weekly pet therapy with a Staffordshire bull terrier called Nellie.
