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

Testimonials

I have spoken with my brother and sister and it goes almost without saying that we are extremely grateful to all the staff at Nazareth Lodge for the way in which they looked after our mother. We are not surprised by the award of an outstanding classification and no doubt a lot was due to the standard of care provided by the staff.

Testimonials

As a family we all know that everything after my father's death was handled brilliantly even down to a 'guard of honour' as his body left Nazareth Lodge.

JB, Son

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.

She enjoyed many of the activities organised in the home and I smile at the memory of her being asked to hold back to allow others to answer some questions for the crossword etc!

Testimonials

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!

Nazareth Lodge was calm, clean, warm and homely and meeting the Management and staff reinforced my feeling I was doing the right thing by introducing Mum to this potential new home to look after her needs

Care Chef 2014 award - the judges chose Suzie because she demonstrated a clear passion for flavours in every course of her meal. They felt her dishes were an honest reflection of the expertise currently enjoyed by the care sector

Thank you so much for the love, support and care you have given both to DF and us his family in the last two weeks and making David's time with you comfortable and dignified, particularly in his last moments.

When I walk into Nazareth Lodge and see the residents potting up hyacinths, up to their elbows in compost, it is indeed a joy to behold

Although mum had little interest in food, it is right that even she recognised the excellent quality and diversity of food provided

Mrs T, Daughter

Testimonials

Our sincere thanks to both you and every single member of your staff for the exceptional level of care and kindness which was always shown to my mother.

Mrs T, Daughter

Testimonials

The last few weeks have been, to say the least, a bit of a roller coaster for my mother in law. For this period to end in the haven of Nazareth Lodge has seen our prayers answered and we could not be more grateful. Thank You.
