Nazareth Lodge

Palliative Care

All our staff receive regular training with the Joseph Weld Hospice in all aspect of Palliative Care.  Our excellence in this field has been supported by our end of life care programme for which we were awarded the coveted Platinum status by the Gold Standard Framework accreditation board.

With planning and discussions with the resident and family we look to ensure that if a resident chooses to end their days in a homely environment at Nazareth Lodge we do our best to grant their wish. They may want Radio 4 on in the background or their favourite CD playing and pictures of the family around them, none of this is too much trouble.

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.

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

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.

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.
