- 1. What type of care do you provide?
Ivy Lodge is a retirement home for those aged over 65. We support residents with all aspects of personal care such as dressing, washing and taking medicines.
Our long serving, warm and caring staff are very experienced in helping residents who may be suffering some short-term memory loss and or some mobility restrictions. Nurses and other health professional do visit our residents but we do not provide nursing care. Every resident who comes to live with us is assessed for the level and type of care they will need which forms a Personalised Care Plan, which is constantly updated to ensure changing care needs continue to be met.
We understand that moving into a retirement home can be an uncertain step and worrying for both the prospective resident and their family. We do offer trial periods which we have discovered need to be a minimum of a month in order to allow the resident enough time settle in and fully appreciate the benefits of assisted living.
