You're in safe hands as staff shine through in recent training session

Nazareth Lodge has always been committed to ensuring the highest levels of safety for residents, families and staff within the home.  We have always insisted that this is a whole team effort where every individual shares the responsibility for identifying potential hazards and that as a team works to find manageable and proactive solutions.

This was put to the test when staff were asked to enter an empty room and identify 23 'staged' hazards.  Natasha and Hannah observed each members reactions and awareness when asked to point out these hazards and suggest solutions.  We are pleased that our staff recorded an average of 92%.

All major issues were identified by all staff proving that you are in safe hands.  This impromptu session is just one example of the ongoing staff training happening at Nazareth Lodge on a daily basis. Other activities include fire drills, manual handling and first aid mock-ups.

Thank you for the lovely meal I had during my first visit to Nazareth Friday Lunch Club this week. I enjoyed the meal and pudding, glass of wine and lovely friendly atmosphere at the home. It was much appreciated and i will be returning next month. Thanks for inviting me.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
