Our work in the community

Our work in the community

Our place in the local community is key to the success of Nazareth Lodge, our staff are on the whole locally based and many of our residents have spent decades in the local area, working, living and socialising.

One of our recent success stories has been our links with local schools and nurseries who come to visit us and spend time with our people.  They have helped with activities, learnt about history and provided musical and dramatic entertainment.

Our residents thrive because of these new interactions and the opportunity to communicate and interact with young people.

We are very grateful to these schools for taking the time to bring students to us and were very excited to receive the following note from Clayesmore School in Iwerne Minster, which proved that everyone benefits from these visits.

Thank you for being part of our community!

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

I wanted to drop a quick note to say how much our students enjoyed their time at Nazareth Lodge last term - it was a great experience for them and something they'll remember for many years to come.  Please pass on our thanks to your staff for being so welcoming too.

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

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

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.

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

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.

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.

Testimonials

Our friend has been a resident at Nazareth Lodge for over 2 years. We visit her regularly. During that time, we have been totally satisfied with the level of care she has received. The staff are very attentive and the food is good. Her room is modern and cleaned regularly. She is very contented and feels at home. I would have no hesitation in recommending Nazareth Lodge to others, as we have done in the past.

JW, Volunteer Visitor

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.
