“We put my grandmother in the home at the start of the year after employing carers at home and that gradually failing due to increased immobility and other health issues. My grandmother Mona was resistant to going into a home up until then and after 10 days said she would like to return to her home. Tudor Lodge worked tirelessly with us to socialise her with like minded people, get her involved with the endless activities and after a short while my Granny loved the home. She made friends, all the carers adored her and she them. They would run in to give her a kiss as they passed her room. She loved the home cooked food and homemade cakes every day as in her own home she had mainly been served ready meals. She was delighted to have jacuzzi baths as she had only been having showers in her own home for the previous year. She made friends whom she invited to her 100th party which was held in the home.”
“A fantastic day where more than 40 friends and family were welcomed and looked after by the home. She loved the fact she could have a glass of wine or whiskey if she felt like it. There is a residents bar at the home at the residents request. She did flower arranging, many creative workshops and wheelchair aerobics. She had her nails painted and her hair washed and set. More importantly we got our Granny back for a while. She became more aware and happy, she put on weight and was stronger. My mother and I and my Aunt Brenda and our children noticed a happier person. We got to take her out for meals and walks on the sea front. It was bonus time as it was so unexpected. We couldn’t be more grateful to Tudor Lodge. She sadly passed last week unexpectedly and will be missed by us all” – Mrs Mogridge
