Opened in May 2019, Briggs Lodge’s dedicated team will provide high-quality residential, residential dementia and nursing care.
Our luxurious home has been designed to include beautifully decorated light and airy lounge and dining areas and spacious en-suite bedrooms, as well as landscaped gardens and a hairdressing salon where residents can enjoy being pampered with beauty treatments.
There are bright open-plan lounge and dining areas, an on-site café, a resident library, hair and beauty salon and a themed cinema room.
Residents are encouraged to make their new home their own by bringing personal ornaments, pictures and small items of furniture.
Friends and family are welcome to visit at any time and will be encouraged to join in our events and activities – lead by our own dedicated organiser and tailored to our residents’ hobbies and interests.
Our care team are on-hand 24 hours a day, every day of the year and staff are dedicated to delivering care with kindness.
To ensure we continue to provide the best standards of care and support to our residents, we recruit and train only the best staff.
Whilst they receive a variety of on-going training to ensure their skills remain up-to-date, along with an enhanced DBS check (formerly CRB), it is their dedication to our residents which makes them truly special.
We believe it is important that our residents spend their time as they choose.
Our dedicated activities leader creates opportunities for our residents to live life to the full, whether supporting them to rekindle a favourite pastime or try something completely new.
We will also have a hairdressing salon where residents are able to enjoy being pampered with manicures and hand massages.
Regular activities on offer include everything from baking, light exercise sessions, arts and crafts, knit and natter groups and live music entertainment.
We pride ourselves on treating people as individuals, so all our residents have care plans tailored to their individual medical, social and emotional needs. We review care plans on a regular basis and involve family and friends in this process wherever possible.
The range of personal care services we can provide, in partnership with local professionals, include:
- Optical care
- Dental care
- Key worker
The mealtime experience is also something for residents to enjoy with a range of seasonal home-cooked meals available including a variety of choices for breakfast, homemade soups and fresh sandwiches, freshly baked cakes and pastries and traditional favourites such as Sunday roast with all of the trimmings, fish and chips and a hearty casserole.
There is also an array of snacks and refreshments available throughout the day if residents get a bit peckish.
