Moving into a care home is one of the most difficult decisions anybody can make and should not be a reason or time to compromise.
Our philosophy of care is to provide a holistic person-centred service that promotes Wellness, Happiness and Kindness in an environment where family and friends are encouraged to visit and spend time with you. We want your time at Rusthall Lodge to be one that is far from compromised; a life enhanced by services that help you live an active and engaging life, whatever your interests are for as long as possible.
Every week there are a wide range of engaging and exciting activities to take part in; many of which involve the residents in the design and delivery. The weekly schedule is delivered to every room and displayed throughout the home.
The activities provide our residents with the opportunity to socialise and where possible, they complement one another so the activities support different aspects of older people's independence and mental wellbeing, such as their physical health, their sense of belonging to a community and their sense of purpose.
Our Chef and catering team freshly prepare our main meals daily and we aim to make the dining experience as pleasurable as possible. The main meal options are normally at lunchtime with lighter options available for supper. As well as getting to know you, the team get to know your food likes and dislikes, ensuring you receive a tasty, balanced nutritious meal in homely surroundings. Drinks and snacks are also served all day with some refreshments being available through the night.
With sufficient notice, our staff are able to provide a catering service for resident birthday celebrations and for less happy occasions when they arise. We can also arrange nutritious packed lunches when hospital appointments have been booked.
Our garden is maintained beautifully by our dedicated gardener. There is a large patio seating area at the front of the building with additional comfortable seating areas for those who simply wish to enjoy the relaxing surroundings close by.
There is always the opportunity for our more green-fingered residents to contribute to the planting if they wish as they are always involved in any horticultural developments that take place here.
