Professional Domestic Help Services

At Meadow Lodge we aim to provide the highest quality care for each individual resident within a homely, friendly and safe environment.

All the accommodation has been purpose built, with the exception of the old farmhouse, which has been altered to modern day standards but still retains many original features.

There are fourteen en-suite bedrooms and seven additional bedrooms available to residents.

The home is cleaned on a daily basis and we pride ourselves on maintaining the building and environment to a very high standard.

There is a large ramped entrance that is south facing and incorporates garden benches and plant displays.

Communal Facilities

We have two lounges, one of which is particularly spacious and is the hub of the friendly home. The main lounge houses a large screen TV and sound system.

There is a separate, south facing dining room which has a sunny outlook and provides a comfortable setting for the interesting and varied meals provided.

A small kitchenette is available for those residents who wish, and are able, to make drinks for themselves. The wide corridors throughout the building gives the home an almost hotel like feel.

In addition to the en-suite facilities available in many rooms, the home has three large, assisted bathrooms.

Room Facilities

Most of our rooms have en-suite facilities and some offer the chance to share with a companion. We welcome personal furniture and possessions, always hoping to give you a home away from home.

If they wish, residents can hold the key to their own rooms. Television aerials and private telephone sockets can also be installed if requested.

Meals

Interesting and varied meals for lunch and tea time are provided by our specialised catering company. This provision is supplemented by our own catering staff who prepare freshly cooked breakfasts and snacks throughout the day.

Choice is offered at every meal time and specialised diets can be catered for. Snacks and drinks are available throughout the day. If a resident isnít keen on any items on the planned menu a bespoke alternative will always be offered.

We are happy to assist residents with feeding and visitors are welcome to join residents for meals.

We are very proud of the standard of food at the home and offer an open invitation to potential residents and their relatives to come and try for themselves.

You can see a typical weekly menu here.

Garden

Our spacious enclosed garden is a super space to get some fresh air and sit and relax. A summer house provides seating and shelter and mature trees bring together the landscaped features. We also have a potting shed for residents use.

Safety and Specialist Features

A pleasant temperature is maintained throughout the home by central heating with individual thermostat controls along with the correct ventilation.

To keep all residents safe, a full fire detection and alarm system is maintained and fully compliant with all current regulations. Lifting and bathing aids ensure that all resident's individual needs are catered for and further equipment is provided by an occupational Therapist and District Nurses as needed.

A passenger lift has been installed in order to take residents to the first floor where needed.

General

All laundry and housekeeping services are included in our fees.

To help our residents maintain their independence we offer an administration support service, for example, typing letters.
