Grandville Lodge Residential Home

We pride ourselves on the high standards of care provided by our thoughtful and well trained team of staff, headed by our experienced and highly qualified Home Manager. At Grandville Lodge, we offer a program of activities, these include, musical productions, visits from local playschool children, who will sing and do arts and crafts with residents, film evenings, animal therapy, gardening and arm chair Zumba . Our residents are free to join in any of these activities or to choose to have quiet time if they prefer. Families and friends are always made to feel welcome and quickly become part of the Grandville Lodge community. We work closely with local health professionals, GPs and District Nurses and have regular visits from a chiropodist and hairdresser. The meals provided are cooked in our own kitchens by our dedicated staff and we offer a constantly changing menu which uses fresh local produce. Afternoon tea is always a hot option, a variety of sandwiches and cake.

1. Action Plan

1. The National Dementia Declaration lists seven outcomes that the DAA are seeking to achieve for people with dementia and their carers. How would you describe your organisation’s role in delivering better outcomes for people with dementia and their carers?

We will be undertaking the Dementia Friendly Care Home Toolkit to support our residents, their family and carers as best as we can.

Once we have completed this toolkit, we will receive a certificate stating that we have undertaken the toolkit and are Dementia Friendly.

2. What are the challenges to delivering these outcomes from the perspective of your organisation?

*Engaging with as many families as possible and inviting them to become Dementia Friendly.

*Getting all staff to become Dementia Friends.
