Corner Lodge is beautifully furnished, set in charming sensory garden, close to the sea and local amenities. The home has recently been upgraded to offer excellent and homely accommodation. The comfort and happiness of our residents is our prime concern.
The home is purpose built and designed to provide specialist dementia care in a comfortable, bright & secure environment. We operate a keypad security system to access and/or exit the building or any of the 3 floors, ensuring 24 hour safety of the residents. A lift is available.
There are five well proportioned light and airy lounges with televisions and music systems. Residents are encouraged to move around freely within these lounges so as to promote their independence. The lounges are tastefully decorated and comfortable, with well positioned seating to enable social interaction. The residents also have access to the computer and the internet including ‘Skype’ in the main lounge to provide that continuous stimulation and enhancement of life skills.
The corner lodge features a conservatory, bringing in the garden all year round, providing a soothing area for residents to relax in. A 24 hour snack buffet trolley is available in the conservatory.
The dining area is tastefully decorated and looks out onto the garden. Hot and cold drinks are available 24 hours.
We have 46 very spacious and well-decorated rooms. The majority have en suite facilities and views of the sea or of fields. Residents are welcome and encouraged to bring their own belongings to make them feel more at home. The residents have a choice of either a walk in shower or the use of an assisted bathroom. Our carers also provide assistance with dressing, dining and mobility, as required.
Even though introduced over a year ago, we are still one of the only homes to take this bold step in North Essex.
