A wonderful care home with wonderful staff always very helpful and friendly. The utmost care is taken to all residents and whenever I have visited the home is spotlessly clean. I am very happy my mother is in Nelson Lodge and I thank everyone there for their great service.

My mother has been a resident at Nelson Lodge for over 4 years and has been very happy there. The carers have done a great job in looking after her and have made extra efforts to ensure that her needs are met.

When it became obvious that my aunt could no longer live on her own, the move to Nelson Lodge occurred very quickly. Despite not wanting to remain in her home, this sudden change in my aunt's circumstances required considerable adjustment on her part and has been challenging for her. But thanks to the patience and kindness shown to her by the staff… of Nelson Lodge, who are ably supported by an outstanding management team in who I have the greatest confidence, she has been coming to terms with her situation, is much calmer, and fully appreciating that she is in a safe environment and well looked after. This is the best outcome her family could hope for.

Mum came to Nelson Lodge for respite care for three weeks. Having been before for respite Mum looked forward to returning and was not disappointed in any way. The accommodation met her needs and the team moved items/bed to suit her - and were happy to do so. The food was of a high standard and was adapted with ease to suit her dietary needs. The ca… re staff are amazing, happy, helpful and very caring. Well managed and missed when not there. Mum is looking forward to returning.

My grandfather stayed at Nelson Lodge for respite. As a nurse, I immediately felt comfortable that the management was competent and knowledgable and the care staff so kind and caring. My grandfather loved his stay and felt at home. We will certainly be using the home again in May this year. The home has a warm, friendly feel to it, and nothing was … too much trouble, and everyone always had a smile on their faces. Highly recommended.

My friend has lived at Nelson Lodge for four years. In this time staff have supported her to keep her independence, she is happy, safe and the staff are very kind. The home has a lovely feel to it with good laughter and activities. The management team are always available for a chat, always met with a friendly face from reception. I would highly re… commend the home to anyone.

My father has been treated with dignity and respect. The staff always take the time to listen and ensure my father is included in the activities that he likes, particularly the nights in the pub with dominoes and cards. The food is good, and you can always order off the menu if you do not like the choices. Always a lovely, warm welcome. Nothing is … ever too much trouble.

Because each of us is unique, we encourage you to choose how your care is planned and delivered at Nelson Lodge. We work closely with you and your family, to build a personal picture of your needs. Little things can make a big difference, so we always strive to understand what is important to you. 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 in really quickly, with regular reviews to keep things up-to-date.
Dedicated staff ensure care, support and understanding is tailored to your exact needs. They will ensure that you continue to enjoy maximum independence and 24-hour peace of mind, knowing that all the help and assistance you might need is always at hand.
All carers employed by Anchor are given intensive training and are required to complete NVQ qualifications and a range of in-house courses to assure you of the best possible care.

All of our employees are trained and supported by our dedicated dementia team to ensure residents feel valued and able to live life to the full. Ever ready to offer support to family and friends via access to information and advice, their approach respects the uniqueness of each person rather than focusing on the diagnosis of dementia.
