An Active Life
At Charnwood Lodge, we run an extensive activity programme and support people to enjoy days out in the community too. By getting to know the people we support well, we are able to offer activities that meet their different passions and interests, including fun one-to-one and group activities, such as arts and crafts, reminiscence sessions, garden parties and quiz and games nights. We also hold regular social events for people we support and their families, including performances from local entertainers.
We welcome the contribution of family members as well as feedback and ideas on our activities and suggestions for future activities and events.
Food and Nutrition
Mealtimes represent an important social occasion for our residents and we work to ensure they are as enjoyable as possible, unhurried and relaxed with residents being given plenty of time to eat and enjoy their meal.
Our chefs prepare nutritious and delicious meals, which are freshly made in the home. We also cater for people who may have specialist dietary needs.
Person Centred Support
All our staff receive specialist training and mentoring and really get to know the people we support. To achieve this, we spend time understanding their life story and the things that are important to them, so we focus on the things that really matter to them.
Every person we support has a named key worker who helps develop their own personalised care.
We have strong links with The Alzheimer’s Society and local advocacy groups.
