Social Care Institute for Excellence film ‘Improving personalisation in care homes - Action planning tool’

We were chosen by the Social Care Institute for Excellence who are working on a Department of Health digital resource around the subject of personalisation in care homes . The main aim of the resource is to help inform and offer practical support to managers and care staff on the importance of personalisation in residential settings. We feel honoured to have been asked and I am delighted to say that the filming was successfully done at The Anchorage in Grimsby.

Cutting Edge Dementia Design

The cutting edge dementia friendly design of The Lodge was recognised by the Open University when it was chosen to be a case study for students throughout the world who are taking a specialist dementia care course.
Students logging onto the Open University website can now watch five documentary-style videos each showing innovative dementia friendly design features of The Lodge, from residents' own apartments through to the dining rooms and lounges and the innovative Market Square and enclosed courtyard garden.

The videos demonstrate how design can play a positive role in the care and wellbeing of people with dementia. Staff ranging from care workers through to senior management are also featured on the videos, talking about the benefits that The Lodge's design brings to its residents.
