Newest Arrivals at Nazareth Lodge

This week residents at Nazareth Lodge received a very kind donation from a local solicitor in the form of a robotic cat and dog. We are extremely grateful for this generous donation and the residents absolutely adore their new “pets”. They are very realistic being able to purr, breath, move their eyes and are very soft to stroke and pet.
Typically, these robotic animals are used for the elderly as a form of animal - assisted therapy; using their life like qualities to calm agitated behaviour and increase positive moods. They are also used to ease loneliness and increase social interaction. You can place the animal on the resident’s lap and they feel like they have a small furry companion. The residents have already really enjoyed these robotic pets, which have brought about big smiles and lots of laughter & discussion.

My mum went into Nazareth Lodge initially for respite last September and is now a permanent resident. I knew the moment I walked in that I had found the perfect place for her as all the staff were so welcoming. I cannot fault the care my mum has had since moving in and I know she now sees it as her home. I would highly recommend this care home.

Testimonials

Nazareth Lodge is a truly excellent care home. Unfortunately, my wife's condition of dementia is deteriorating and when she is away from her home surrounding and from my fulltime care, she displays signs of unhappiness.
I know that everything possible was done to make my wife's stay as comfortable as it could be. I look forward to another visit to Nazareth Lodge in the future.

Testimonials

Prior to my uncle's eventual arrival 10 weeks ago, the management of the home were superb in their support for us during a difficult time and arranging the transport from a hospital a few counties away. Thanks to the staff he has settled in well and we are pleased our initial very good impressions of the home have been borne out.
