Dementia and Alzheimers Care
Although, Ardmore Lodge Lodge is not a Dementia specific service, all residents with dementia/cognitive impairment are treated with respect and dignity at all times and staff encourage and facilitate a person-centred approach to the provision of care and services. Ardmore Lodge Nursing Home assists their residents with dementia/cognitive impairment in remaining as physically and mentally fit and healthy as possible. Maximizing the residents’ quality of life is central to this approach.
At Ardmore Lodge, we appreciate the value of fine dining and in addition to a wide and varied menu of seasonal dishes and traditional favourites we provide a number of options for those with special dietary needs. A full menu of modified consistency diets are available for those with swallowing difficulties. We also cater for the specialised needs of those residents who are unable to eat by mouth, in consultation with the Dietician and Speech and Language therapy services.
