The Lodge is a residential elderly care home in Walton-on-the-Naze in Essex, with capacity to accommodate up to 36 residents, including those living with Dementia. We put a focus on ensuring our residents have access to enriching experiences within our care, which is why we use the person-centred approach.
We aim to create care packages tailored to our residents individual needs, which gives them an active say in their care plans, diets, and activities schedule. We believe dignity and freedom should be the central pillars of care.
The accommodation is split across two floors, with those residing in the upper level able to access the ground floors via a 4 person lift, or via the main staircase – ensuring mobility is not an issue for any of our residents. The home has a communal lounge, beautifully presented dining room, and bathroom facilities on each floor allowing for multiple spaces for residents to take part in activities. The home also hosts regular entertainment which our residents can have an active say in.
The home has ample parking to ensure residents loved ones can visit with ease, and benefits from an enclosed garden to the rear of the property ensuring privacy and comfort for our residents. Situated close to the beach at Walton-on-the-Naze, the home has access to all local amenities and is close to local public transport routes allowing our residents to explore the local region.
My mother was extremely anti-care home and desperately did not want to leave her own home. However, unable to safely look after herself, care was the only option. At The Lodge, she has found a home from home. She has nothing but praise for the staff, loves the facilities and bed in her room, and enjoys the food. She has made friends and enjoys more social contact now than when she lived on her own. From my point of view - the staff are friendly, caring and lovely, and have kept us updated on all the Covid changes, restrictions and developments as well as my mother's health - communication has been excellent; the rooms are spotless, and so are Mum's clothes; Covid and normal security are reassuring. We had heard good reports about The Lodge before she went there, and they were all true. It's reassuring to know she is happy, safe and being well cared for. - Steve G
My Aunt is very happy living at The Lodge. The staff are both caring and professional and the Home is run to a very high standard. Throughout the past year, under such challenging circumstances, they have continued to provide a safe environment for both residents and staff. They telephone each week with an update on my Aunt's general health and well being as I am vulnerable myself and unable to visit at the present time. - Penny G
Mum has been in The Lodge for several years now, she is settled and seems happy. Has said herself the staff are very kind, willing, helpful and do much to keep the residents stimulated. Whenever asked mum has always enjoyed the meals. Thank you. - L.T
