Our approach to wellbeing

Our central belief has always been that activities are fundamental to enriching people’s lives. Ensuring that a range of activities are on offer for all interests and abilities has a far-reaching positive effect both on the mind and the body.

With our amazing in-house activity co-ordinators collaborating with the care team seven days a week, we can ensure there is always something that will stimulate you, the resident, to be inspired and fulfilled. Many of these can be meaningful activities based around everyday living, such as cooking or gardening. They can be dynamic activities such as our yoga and music sessions, indoor bowling and golf. Or they can be more serene centred around art, reading and reminiscence therapy. Worcester Lodge is designed in such a way that activities are set up in a number of our lounges and dining rooms including the ever-popular conservatory with its very own sweet shop. This allows choice based on both individual and collective requests and interests.

Wellbeing through innovation

Our focus on innovation and technology enables us the push the boundaries of high-quality dementia care. We meticulously research every potential innovative addition to the home, to ensure it will enhance the lived experience – rather than implementing technology just for the sake of technology.

Our interactive magic table is a fun care innovation that connects older people on their dementia journey with each other and with their surroundings though infrared technology. A recent addition to the home is the incredible 40 inch adjustable touch screen tablet, with dementia-specialised games and activities tailored to each resident as well as access to an extensive film and music selection.

All the care plans and daily records including individual and collective activities as well as medication administration are maintained and updated through our online Care&Clinical system. Our handheld devices allow for instant recording of any actions by the care team, building a 24 hour care record for everyone at Worcester Lodge.

Active lives at Worcester Lodge

We thrive on finding out about your life story, what makes you happy and gives you most enjoyment. If there is an activity you want to do, or a place you want to visit, we will do our upmost to make it happen within our capabilities.

We run regular trips in our private minibus to local coffee shops, restaurants as well as the supermarket and garden centres. We appreciate the value of community interaction, so the residents have planned to set up their own regular market stall, selling items made by themselves, and having fun whilst raising money for a good cause.

A relative shares their thoughts

'I feel that it is the staff within your home that makes Worcester Lodge such a lovely place for your residents to live. All your care team, and support staff are so caring and patient despite the busy-ness of their jobs. I have seen on many occasions the kindness with which even the most demanding residents are treated. It takes a special type of individual to do the job of caring for some of our most vulnerable older folk to the standard delivered at Worcester Lodge and we should all be grateful that there are people like you who are willing to undertake this valuable work within our communities.'
