Careful research and close liaison with the nationally renowned Dementia Services Development Centre at the University of Stirling ensures we have developed four unique communities that embrace best practice in the sector, and we are very proud to have received their first ever Gold Standard accreditation for dementia design for The Lodge.
Led by our Registered Manager Julie Stringfellow each community is managed by an experienced Community Lead who is supported by a team of both specialist dementia and general nurses, team leaders and care workers all who have received in house specialist dementia training. The nursing team is supported by our Lead Nurse, Amanda Hodgson who ensures we maintain a level of clinical excellence in each community which allows us to deliver complex care and support to people with very different needs and challenges.
Our residential community – supporting people living with a dementia to maintain their independence whilst providing personalised care in a safe and supportive environment.
The Raleigh community provides residential care for people with early or moderate dementia and can accommodate up to 25 people in ground floor purposely designed studio and one bedroom apartments.
The Lodge also provides 24-hour nursing care for up to 55 people who have a diagnosis of dementia with additional health and social care needs. Spread across three communities, our nursing services offer a safe, therapeutic environment for people who sometimes display behavior that can be challenging.
The Market Square is a unique destination space for meaningful activities and socialising with families and friends. Innovative and dementia-friendly, this is the perfect place to relax and enjoy life.
