Lucky

Lucky
Nazareth Lodge Puppy

Lucky's job is simple - to make our residents and staff smile every day.  This is a role that he performs expertly!

At Nazareth Lodge, we believe that having animals around the home on a daily basis actually helps our residents feel more at home.  Having pets can help reduce blood pressure and improve overall cardiovascular health. It can also release endorphins that produce a calming effect that can help reduce stress and pain and improve cognitive performance.

Testimonials

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.

Testimonials

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.

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.
