Welcome to Nesfield Lodge Care Home - A specialist respite and dementia residential care home.
Nesfield Lodge is a friendly and familiar dementia residential home with respite services. The home was awarded the first Orchard Care Home for Culinary Excellence and our Home Manager, Laura Pickering, was awarded Care Home Manager of the year at the recent Orchard Care Homes' Heart Awards.
The home has 44 ensuite rooms, all decorated to high standards, with modern furnishings and fittings. Our bright and airy communal lounge has direct access to the secure garden. The home also has a quiet reminiscence room, decorated in a 1940s theme, allows for more contemplative time. Our staff are highly trained and in areas in relation to illnesses such as COPD, stroke and epilepsy.
About Our Care Home:
Staff at Nesfield Lodge are dedicated to resident’s care. They are focused on ensuring residents maintain independence, active lifestyles and are kept stimulated. Nesfield Lodge is one of the pioneering homes to take part in a hen-keeping programme. HenPower is an inspiring project linking older people with hens to combat social isolation. Combining hen keeping with hen related arts activities, there has been a positive impact from the hens’ presence, giving additional focus and activity to many of the residents in the home. Food is a key focus for us, and our kitchen team were awarded Centre for Culinary Excellence. This award scheme recognises and gives credit to the cooks and kitchens of Orchard Care Homes. Staff have been praised for their ‘dedication to high standards, and in delivering an enticing and appetising daily menu to the residents of the home’. We have a strong relationship with our local schools and community groups, keeping the residents as active and engaged as possible and our Activity Coordinator presents a varied programme of events and one to one activity, which changes each week.
