New Chickens arrive at Nazareth Lodge

New Chickens arrive at Nazareth Lodge

Nazareth Lodge has always been known for its pets and now we welcome more chickens to our home.  

The new coop and chickens are part of a plan to raise our own chicks, it is hoped that this pair will in time breed and produce eggs which can be placed in our new incubator and increase the home's population with new chicks.

As with all our pets, care is provided jointly by staff and residents.  We believe that in a rural community such as ours, having these animals and our gardens helps our residents feel more at home and helps them engage in the daily routines within the home.  We have found that having pets in the home helps combat loneliness, boosts activity levels, and reduces stress and alleviate depression.  

We will be keeping an eye on our new residents and hope to report good news in the coming weeks.

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

I would like to thank you and everyone at Nazareth Lodge for the care you took of my cousin. It was so reassuring to know she was in safe hands. Thank you and your staff also who came to her service last Friday. It meant a lot.

FG, family of resident

Testimonials

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.

Doug Horlock, friend

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. 

Mr W, Relative

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.

Mr S, Relative

To know that mum spent her last few days/weeks surrounded by your care and kindness, as well as professionalism, gives me a huge sense of relief and peace. Thank you for everything.

Nazareth Lodge is a Care Home in the true sense of the word. Not just for my parents but for me too. You all show such love and affection and concern.

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.

JW, Volunteer Visitor

Testimonials

My husband is already a resident and I have spent two weeks in respite care. I have been wonderfully cared for and feel I have recovered very quickly. I cannot fault the staff, who are so caring and gentle and always cheerful. The food is lovely, well cooked and presented. There are plenty of activities organised and outings arranged for mobile residents. This is an excellent care home and its awards are well deserved.

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.

Family of DF

Testimonials

We felt that the judgement of Nazareth Lodge staff regarding our mother's health was trusted and appointments were readily arranged when required resulting in some of the best medical attention she ever received outside a hospital

Mr S D, Son

Testimonials

I have to thank you especially for the care and support you all gave my father in his last few days. I have related stories to friends with elderly parents that your night staff for instance were singing with him during the long hours of darkness. They couldn't believe it.
