Your Care

Philosophy of Care

At Alsley Lodge, we aim to provide an exceptionally high level of care and to ensure that each resident is treated with utmost respect, their privacy protected and their dignity preserved. Our goal is to support individuality, promote independence and to encourage our residents to exercise choice in all aspects of their care.

Health

The prime objective of our home is to promote and foster health and wellbeing. On admission of each resident, an assessment of need is performed by a senior member of the care team, from which a Care Plan is created. Residents, their relatives and doctors are offered and encouraged to participate in the drafting of their Care Plan. A review is conducted monthly, unless changes in the resident's condition necessitate more frequent reviews.

Residents from outside the area are welcome to join our local doctors' practice. The District Nurse Team work alongside the GP and can be called on when necessary.

In case of illness, relatives are informed immediately and are updated regularly on the patient's recovery. If family members wish to be present whilst their relative is ill, we arrange suitable accommodation for them. Residents using the home for convalescent purposes are attended by a rehabilitation team to prepare them for discharge home.

In addition, residents are invited to benefit from:

  • Music Therapy
  • Manicures and hairdressing
  • Dentist
  • Optician
  • Chiropodist
  • Physiotherapy and Occupational therapy as needed
