Anavo shortlisted for Leaders in Care Awards
Situated in Whitchurch in Hampshire, Wessex Lodge provides a pleasant, comfortable environment, which is well equipped for elderly people. Wessex Lodge is a modern purpose-built home for 40 residents, specifically designed to meet the needs of older residents requiring nursing care.
Each resident and their loved one will work with our team to build a personalised care package that fits their personal circumstances.
Our residents live in a safe, caring home. We strive to maintain as much of their independence. Our philosophy is based on care with dignity, individuality with the piece of mind that comes from the knowledge that fully trained staff are at hand 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
The home has 40 en-suite bedrooms that have been decorated with soft furnishings to provide a warm, homely environment. Residents are encouraged to add their personal touch to their rooms. Each room has a 24-hour nurse call system.
The Home has a number of beautiful lounges and a dining room, which provide relaxing meeting areas for residents and their guests. Outside, the garden and patio areas offer our residents a chance to relax.
A team of experienced carers and nurses create a happy atmosphere – and a place where we enjoy living and working together. We meet with the residents regularly as a group to find out what they would like to do, so we can personalise group and individual activities to their wishes and desires. We hold events, parties, celebrations as a family would, and we do everything we can to keep the residents happy, entertained and well.
Activities take place 7 days a week, so there is always something to do.
Our chef creates delicious and nutritionally balanced meals which are designed to cater for individual likes and tastes of our residents. We can also provide assistance with eating.
We maintain good levels of hydration and nutrition, particularly amongst our residents with memory loss.
