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.

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.

My mum went into Nazareth Lodge initially for respite last September and is now a permanent resident. I knew the moment I walked in that I had found the perfect place for her as all the staff were so welcoming. I cannot fault the care my mum has had since moving in and I know she now sees it as her home. I would highly recommend this care home.

I am kept informed of my mother's health and what she has been doing and when I visit I always feel welcome and as cared for as her. It is a joy to go to Nazareth Lodge which makes a huge difference to us all. As a family, we are extremely happy with the care and attention my mother gets and it is wonderful that she is very content and we know she is safe and being well looked after.

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!

TC, Relative

Testimonials

Nazareth Lodge is a truly excellent care home. Unfortunately, my wife's condition of dementia is deteriorating and when she is away from her home surrounding and from my fulltime care, she displays signs of unhappiness.
I know that everything possible was done to make my wife's stay as comfortable as it could be. I look forward to another visit to Nazareth Lodge in the future.

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.
