Back to Our care

Personally tailored care

At Anchor we have a long history of caring for older people and we put residents at the heart of everything we do. Nelson Lodge is the result of this approach, carefully conceived with all our experience and passion, to meet the needs and expectations of the next generation of older people with tailored personal care.

At Nelson Lodge we will provide personally tailored care to meet the individual needs of our residents, whatever level of care and support they require from our care assistants.

Because each of us is unique we encourage you to choose how your care is planned and delivered. Working very closely with residents and their families we always build a personal picture of each resident’s needs. Little things can make a big difference, so we always strive to understand the important details. We call it person-centred care because it’s built around you or your loved one and their preferences. It’s there to help you settle into your new home with ease, with regular reviews to ensure we deliver the care that you need.

We appreciate the wide and varied aspects that contribute to our residents’ wellbeing. Our holistic approach to residential care encompasses the physical needs of each resident, as well as their emotional and psychological wellbeing.

We understand that moving into a care home is a big decision undertaken for many reasons. Some people may simply feel lonely and isolated and want to move into a community to make new friends and feel safe and secure. Others may be physically frail and no longer able to remain at home for safety reasons. Our focus on personally tailored care, including dementia care, enables us to support residents to live a full life, feel truly at home at Nelson Lodge and maintain their independence, whatever their needs.

Health and well-being

Arthritis, stroke, Parkinson’s and Osteoporosis, are all conditions that we may suffer from as we age; at Nelson Lodge we know how important it is to care for our residents with the dignity and respect they deserve.

To achieve this we make partnerships with a range of health and social care specialists. Nelson Lodge will be able to organise visits from a GP, district nurse, physiotherapist, chiropodist or holistic therapist, as well as arrange visits to the dentist and optician as needed.
