2019 Initiatives and Improvements

2019 Initiatives and Improvements

Nazareth Lodge is proud to have achieved the Outstanding Rating again from the Care Quality Commission following their inspection in March 2018. This brings the home into the top level of all care homes in the country. The home was also rated “Outstanding” in their previous inspection in September 2015.

New initiatives that have started, or are being researched, since the home was taken over in August 2018 are:

- a new electronic system called “Nourish” which is designed to create care plans to be installed in the home. This will make reporting easier for the care assistants freeing up time for them to spend with the people they care for. It will also give relatives and friends immediate updates on the wellbeing of their relative.

- electronic medication system which will help in the administration of medication to residents ensuring better care and outcomes for the resident.

- a time and attendance system

- a programme of redecoration

- a minibus to be used for outings for the residents

- more hours being dedicated to activities for the residents

- the installation of an “interactive table” for use by the residents and the Activities Coordinator

Nazareth Lodge encourages a wide range of activities and outings - although my mother seemed to spend most of her time getting her hair done and having massages!

Testimonials

As a retired District Nurse of some years experience I was encouraged to discover such a well run home as Nazareth Lodge when we moved to the area some years ago.

Beryl Shaw, friend and retired District Nurse

Testimonials

My father is being very well cared for and we have absolutely no cause for any complaint. The staff are wonderfully caring, patient and understanding. They always have time for each individual resident and for relatives, always ensuring that we, as visitors, are well looked after and are made to feel welcome. Would have no problem in recommending the home to others. Thank you, Nazareth Lodge, you deserve your CQC Outstanding recognition.

RP, Relative

Testimonials

Deciding where my mother should live after our father died was one of the most difficult decisions we had to make. As a family we looked at many homes and were very impressed when we got to Nazareth Lodge with is friendly and professional staff from senior managers to the carers. The carers at Nazareth Lodge are very special individuals, picked for their kindness and empathy.
The residents at Nazareth Lodge are all treated as individuals and can do as much or as little as they wish.

A thank you would in no way suffice for the reassurance and peace that everyone helped to give to me and others during the eight months that RW was with you.
