All our care staff have NVQ training or are working towards one and we also employ a number of qualified nurses. All our staff are hired because of their commitment to the values here at the Waterside Lodge.
As well as a pleasant sensory garden outside, inside we have spacious lounge areas where residents can relax, watch TV and videos, listen to the radio and enjoy the company of others.
Our residents' dignity is a priority. Each resident has their own key worker who takes an ongoing and keen interest in the resident's personal and social dignity and who works to promote and uphold it.
It is our aim to promote the independence and quality of life of our residents, who are free to enjoy time out with their key worker: the town centre (with shops and market) is within easy walking distance.
