Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - CARING FOR THE ELDERLY -

STAFF and res­i­dents at Chal­font Lodge Care Cen­tre in Chal­font St Peter are en­joy­ing the home’s el­e­gant new look, which was un­veiled ear­lier this year af­ter sig­nif­i­cant in­vest­ment in the home.

The newly re­fur­bished spa­ces in­clude a beau­ti­ful new din­ing room and a cheer­ful re­cep­tion area. The care home, which of­fers a range of ser­vices, also now has Sky TV.

Chal­font Lodge Care Cen­tre is run by Barch­ester Health­care and pro­vides high qual­ity care op­tions, from nurs­ing and respite care, to spe­cialised de­men­tia care and ser­vices for in­di­vid­u­als un­der 65.

The highly qual­i­fied nurses and well-trained care staff fo­cus on the in­di­vid­ual needs of each res­i­dent, de­vel­op­ing a tai­lored care plan for each and every per­son. Every staff mem­ber is com­mit­ted to help­ing peo­ple en­joy life and giv­ing the sup­port needed, while en­cour­ag­ing in­de­pen­dence wher­ever pos­si­ble.

De­men­tia care at Chal­font Lodge is of­fered within a Mem­ory Lane Com­mu­nity. This area of the home is specif­i­cally de­signed so that in­di­vid­u­als liv­ing with de­men­tia can be as in­de­pen­dent as pos­si­ble, with prompts that en­cour­age rem­i­nis­cence and mean­ing­ful ac­tiv­ity. Fa­cil­i­ties such as life-skills kitchens al­low peo­ple to con­tinue to ex­pe­ri­ence the fa­mil­iar­ity of ev­ery­day house­hold tasks, such as set­ting the table for din­ner, wash­ing up or bak­ing.

Why not ar­range a visit to Chal­font Lodge to see their new interiors, or call in to have a cup of tea and see first-hand the care op­tions that are avail­able.
