We believe in creating meaningful experiences for our residents and day club members, focusing on what they can do, rather than what they can’t.
Our lifestyle team organises regular activities that are based around residents’ interests and hobbies. These include crafts, quizzes, gentle exercise, film shows and visits from entertainers. Many residents enjoy exploring the different parts of the home in their own time – and there’s plenty to discover, including a pets’ corner, a nursery and a beach area.
A UK first
If Broadwater Lodge residents say they want something, we’ll go to any length to deliver it. Which is why we recently became the first care home in the UK with its own farm. Animal therapy and pets are popular with so many of our residents that we opted to create our own smallholding in the gardens. We have a couple of pigs and goats, a rabbit, guinea pigs and chickens which residents love stroking, feeding and generally caring for.
Enjoying good food
Mealtimes are always a highlight of each day at Broadwater Lodge. There is always a choice of dishes, and our chef knows residents’ individual dietary needs as well as their preferences and will rustle up something for your loved one if they fancy something that isn’t on the menu. Our team supports residents to eat as independently as possible, using our bespoke dementia-friendly crockery and cutlery, however we always provide discreet help where needed.
