When choosing a care home for yourself or a relative, you will not only be looking for one that provides the very best care, but one which supports individual lifestyles, tastes and preferences.
Chalfont Lodge Care Centre is a purpose-built nursing home providing 24 hour care in the small village of Chalfont St Peter, near to Gerrards Cross Railway Station. Chalfont Lodge has an experienced team of highly qualified nurses and well-trained care staff who focus on the individual needs of each resident, developing a tailored care plan for each and every person.
Chalfont Lodge has 113 beds and offers a range of different care options for frail older people, people living with dementia and younger people with physical disabilities. The home specialises in treating a range of neurological conditions, including acquired brain injuries, and 24-hour postural management of complex disabilities and specialist seating provided by our Physiotherapy team.
The home’s dedicated Memory Lane community provides care for individuals living with dementia. The purposeful design encourages people living with dementia to lead a full and active life, staying as independent as possible. Facilities such as life-skills kitchens allow those individuals living with dementia to continue to experience the familiarity of everyday household tasks like setting the table for dinner, washing up or baking.
Chalfont Lodge takes a personalised approach to dementia care, as well as all other care services provided at the home. This approach extends to social and leisure activities. Activity co-ordinators get to know every resident and provide group and individual options that are tailored to individuals’ interests. Whether a person is passionate about films, gardening or local history, the home organises events and activities catering to everyone’s tastes.
The Head Chef at Chalfont Lodge is committed to creating inspiring menus, which are constantly revised and improved based on feedback received from residents. Whichever dishes diners choose to enjoy, it is all freshly prepared and the chef insures all needs are met.
Why not arrange a visit to Chalfont Lodge or come along to one of their upcoming events. The home will be hosting ‘Knit and Natter’ session throughout Dementia Awareness Week (week commencing 18 May) for anyone in the local community who cares for an individual with a neurological illness. The informal meet-up gives carers a chance to meet up with others in similar circumstances and will involve chatting over a cup of tea or coffee, and guests are encouraged to bring along their knitting if they want to.
Other upcoming events open to anyone from the local community and surrounding areas include a summer barbeque on 14 June, which features musical entertainment from local choir Village Voices and a classic car show being held on 20 June as part of the national initiative, Care Home Open Day. The home is easily accessible, within easy reach of the M25, A40 and M40, and nearby Gerrards Cross Railway Station has a direct route into London.
